October 16, 2023

Halloween candy can be expensive—and what are you supposed to do with all the leftovers that you don’t end up passing out to the kids? (No, the answer is not “eat it all single handedly.”) If you’re looking for a fun alternative to basic Halloween candy, check out these spook-tacular recipes and scare up a good time.

Creepy Cookies

If you still want to give the trick or treaters something sweet to eat, here are a few cookie recipes to really get your visitors into the spirit of Halloween:

Mummy Milanos: This simple recipe is perfect for a last-minute tasty treat, and makes a great grab-and-go snack for any hungry trick-or-treater.

Oreo Spider Web Cookies: These creepy cookies are crawling with cuteness—and they’re delicious, too. Hocus Pocus Binx Cookies: Try this scary-good chocolate cookie recipe. It will be sure to delight the ghouls and guests that stop by your house.

Monstrous Mixin’s

There’s nothing like a tasty bag of trail mix or another snack pack that you can easily drop into a treat bag. Get started with these recipes: 

Witch Finger Pretzels: Just drop these frightening fingers into a baggie for on-the-go treats. 

Halloween Snack Mix: You could even sneak a few raisins or other fruits into this mix to give the ghosts and ghouls a healthy treat. 

Halloween Popcorn Mix: Give any visitors who pop by a little bit of popcorn before sending them on their way.

Hauntingly Healthy

Who says all Halloween treats have to be sweet? You can still give the monsters on your door a tasty treat—and it can be healthy, too.
