Fun Food for Halloween

I love creating fun foods!  Special occasions and holidays get my creative juices and my internet searches flowing to find just the right treats ~ ones that not only taste great, but bring a smile to my family's face.  Here are some of my Halloween favorites.  There are tons of ideas out there.  Find one you love and make a special treat for (or better yet, with) your family today!

Nutter Butter Ghosts


Nutter Butter Cookies

White Chocolate Candy Wafers or White Chocolate Chips

Mini Chocolate Chips, Black Icing, Mini M&M's, or whatever you want to use for eyes


Melt wafers or white chocolate chips according to package directions.  Be careful not to heat too long or it will harden and be impossible to use.

Dip cookies in white chocolate or spread on cookies (I spread - much faster, neater, easier!)

Attach mini chocolate chip eyes while chocolate is still wet.

Let sit to harden.

Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins


Rice Krispies



Orange Food Coloring

Black Licorice


Follow directions for Rice Krispie Treats on cereal box

Add drops of orange food coloring for pumpkin color

Form into pumpkin shapes while still warm

Attach licorice for stems

You may need to keep reforming them a bit because they tend to slump a bit until they are cooled

A lot of fancier recipes for these have started to circulate more recently but these are simple and easy.  I will probably add faces this year at the very least!
