Honestly, the combination of Jack Skellington and Oreos is basic the power couple of my kid’s dreams.

7 – Monster Brownies
Monster Brownies by Gastronom are right up my kid’s alley. The ingredient list includes tons of kid-friendly items including candy eyes, chocolate, and holiday Oreos. When compiling roundups like this I always try including my kids and Tyler was extremely vocal about his excitement towards these scary yet delicious looking treats.
8 – Pumpkin Flavored Caramels
Pumpkin Flavored Caramels by Spabettie are at the top of our list for this Halloween. Growing up my Mom ran a handmade chocolate business out of our home and would let me help whenever appropriate. Her business is long gone, but the family tradition of making holiday chocolates is still going strong. Each year I try to find a new holiday mold or recipe we can all do together. This year is all about these pumpkin-flavored Caramels made in a skeleton mold.
9 – Pumpkin and Cat Peanut Butter Balls
Pumpkin and Cat Peanut Butter Balls by The Monday Box are not only delicious but so simple to recreate with your own family. Both of my children love peanut butter flavored treats and they can easily make these without limited help from me. Since my kiddos are itty bitty they loved creating their own treats ( and messes!) in the kitchen by themselves so I’m always on the hunt for recipes they can do without much of an assist from me.
10 – Purple Monster Cupcakes
Purple Monster Cupcakes by Kelly’s Thoughts on Things are perfect for a classroom Halloween party. Cupcakes are pretty standard for a kid’s holiday-themed party and I’m big on bringing something the kids will get a kick out of eating. These purple monster cupcakes what I plan on recreating for all the Halloween parties my kids have this year.
11 – Frankenstein Cupcakes
Frankenstein Cupcakes by Rainboats and Ruffles are another fun cupcake option for kid’s Halloween parties this year. As I mentioned, cupcakes are always a hit among kiddos and these Frankie cupcakes are super simple to recreate with your own family.
12 – Eyeball Cake Pops
Eyeball Cake Pops by A Girl Worth Saving are a healthy alternative to the typical Halloween desserts for kids. These particular cake pops are both grain and gluten-free. You can still make you kids fun and festive Halloween treats even if they have dietary restrictions.
13 – Raspberry Mummies
Raspberry Mummies by Veggie Desserts are a fun play on a classic fruit pie. My kids love all different pies so I thought these would be fun to try to make as a Halloween treat. Raspberry is my daughters favorite so I think these will be a hit.
14 – Eyeball Truffles
Eyeball Truffles by Steam Powered Family are a great idea for kids to make as a treat. Normally truffle recipes a simple and easy for kids to recreate. This particular will require some help from me to help make the eyeballs but I think they are going to be fun to make together.
15 – Bloody Cupcakes
Bloody Cupcake by Nerdy Mamma are different options when it comes to cupcakes but some kids might not love eating something that’s supposed to remind them of blood. My 8yr old is super into Zombies and the horror movie genre so he may like making these, but I doubt my 5yr old daughter would even take a bite.
16 – Pumpkin Brownie Pizza
Pumpkin Brownie Pizza by Finding Zest is a great idea to bring to a Halloween party. It’s big enough to feed a bunch of people and makes quite a statement in the middle of a dessert table.
17 – Monster Halloween Popcorn
Monster Halloween Popcorn by Recipes from a Pantry isn’t a dessert per se but a Halloween treat kids are sure to love. Sometimes my kids prefer a savory treat or a standard dessert so I thought this popcorn was a perfect addition to this list. Plus, if you are at all familiar with The Inspired Holiday you know my family loves a good old fashioned movie night – especially a holiday-themed movie night!
