Halloween Snacks to Please Little Monsters

Halloween Snacks

Halloween snacks get everyone excited this time of year! The look on those little faces when you do something so simple is truly priceless. Changing up a normal food and giving it just a little twist can make their day! Plus, I’ve added a special adult treat to the blog as a little extra!

Spider Sandwich:

Materials:
  • Bread
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Peanut Butter
  • Blueberries

Cut the bread into a circle using a butter knife. Spread peanut butter on one slice and stick four pretzels to each side. Add the other slice on top and stick two blueberries on for eyes. We found that a dab of peanut butter helped the eyes to stay put.

My four year old actually learned how to make this one herself and she was so proud! She even added a candy corn nose to hers!

Halloween Cookie Cutter Sandwiches:

Materials:
  • Bread
  • Halloween Cookie Cutters
  • Anything you want to put in your sandwich

Stamp out your bread and meat using Halloween cookie cutters!

Pumpkin Quesadilla:

Materials:
  • Tortillas
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Take two tortillas and using kitchen scissors cut out the face and a stem! Spray some cooking spray on a pan and fry up the quesadilla!

Finger Dogs:

 
Materials:
  • Hotdogs
  • Ketchup
  • Hotdog Buns

Cook the hotdogs the way you normally do. Using a sharp paring knife cut off the casing near the top to create a fingernail. Then make little slits in the hotdog to create the look of the knuckles and wrinkles. Chop off the end and squirt the ketchup primarily in that area.

Mummy Dogs:

Materials:
  • Hotdogs
  • Crescent Rolls

Take your hotdogs and wrap them up with a crescent roll. I stretched my crescent rolls sections out so they were a little thinner and stringy before I wrapped the hotdog. Then pop them in the oven as directed on the crescent roll package. Just leave them in a little longer to cook.

Halloween Snacks

Mummy Fruit Pouches:

Materials:
  • Fruit Pouches
  • Toilet Paper or Crete Paper

Wrap the paper around a fruit pouch and tape the end on the back. Glue on two googly eyes and you are all set!

Pumpkin Fruit Cups:

Draw a pumpkin face on the bottom of a mandarin orange fruit cup with a black sharpie marker! Display them upside down until the kids are ready to eat them!

Ghost String Cheese:

Halloween snacks don’t get much easier than this one…

With a sharpie marker draw a ghost face (basically three circles) on the outside of a white string cheese package.

Witches Brooms:

Halloween Snacks

This is such a simple little thing you can do for the kids. Take a sharpie marker and draw silly pumpkin faces on their oranges or cuties! They will love it!

Dessert

Jello Brains:

Materials:
  • Brain Mold (I found my at the Dollar Store.)
  • Jello
  • Water

Prepare three boxes of Jello as directed on the package. I mixed green and red to get this black color. Pour into the mold and refrigerate until it becomes solid. Tip it over onto a plate and enjoy!

 

We aren’t huge Jello fans at our house so after we ate a bit, I let them have some sensory time!
For younger ones, you may want to do the Jello exploring in the bathtub.

I’m Here for the BOOS…For the Adults Only!

I set up a Bloody Mary bar for the adults the night of the Halloween Science Experiments. I simply attached stickers to the pitcher for the saying and then added other fun ingredients (pickles, ghost string cheese from above, beef sticks, olives, pepperonis, etc.) on the side for them to add to their Bloody Mary.

There you have it! Halloween snacks that are fun, festive, and full of memories for everyone! Give it a shot and let me know how it turns out!
