Easy kid friendly Halloween treats
Bake some fun Halloween treats with your kids!
Halloween is the perfect time to bake some easy, kid friendly Halloween treats. You can turn every day cupcakes, cookies and biscuits into all sorts of spooky creatures like monsters, spiders or skeletons. Here are some of our favourite spooky bakes:
Googly eyes are the perfect addition to any spooky Halloween treat and should be easy to find in any supermarket. We turned made these fun Halloween cookie monsters by adding some Halloween colours to our favourite cookie dough and then topping with some sweets and google eyes.
Halloween brownies are the perfect spooky Halloween bake for any chocolate fiend! Turn your favourite brownie recipe into some chocolate mummies with a little bit of white chocolate and some googly eyes. They’re such a simple bake (and one of my favourites to eat!) so they’re great for kids who want to make something easy for a Halloween party.
Take some regular cookies, add some chocolate decoration and you get some spooky Halloween spider cookies. These are fun to make and a real hit with adults and children alike! There are two ways of making spider cookies, either with small chocolate chips, or if you have some fun googly eyes, add them to some Maltesers or large chocolate balls and pop them on your cookies to decorate. They’re perfect for a Halloween party or Halloween cake sale!
These Halloween monster biscuits are one of the easiest Halloween treats you can make. We just used our favourite sugar cookie recipe as it’s easy, bakes well, and is quite plain so makes the perfect base for lots of icing and sprinkles! With the addition of some googly eyes, they’re so simple and make perfect little monsters! If you’ve got toddlers who don’t have the patience to do an entire bake, make these sugar cookies in advance and simply get them to add the decoration.
Make or buy a cake, smash it up and turn it in to an eye catching cake pop. Simple! You can turn your Halloween cake pops into pumpkins with some fun orange candy melts, or try ghosts or eye balls with some white chocolate and a bit of decoration.
These fun skeleton biscuits are the perfect easy, Halloween treat. Kids will enjoy making the dough, rolling and cutting out the shapes and decorating the skeletons. We just used our simple sugar cookie recipe with a little cocoa powder added for colour and to make the bones stand out.
These spooky spider web biscuits are a fun Halloween treat. The sugar cookie biscuits are really simple to make and can lend themselves to any kind of decoration so we added some simple icing and used skewers to make them look like cobwebs. The kids really enjoyed making the biscuits and getting to decorate them – the cobweb is a simple effect that even little chefs can do – which gives them a real sense of achievement.
Halloween is a great time to do some fun and spooky baking with kids. These Halloween apple pie mummies are a tasty treat that would be great at any Halloween party. If you‘ve any googley-eyes leftover from the Halloween cookies, these are a simple Halloween dessert to make with them.
We turned regular gingerbread men into mummies with a little icing and some eyes. They are a really easy Halloween treat for kids to make, even if they are just in charge of the decorating!
