Halloween: It may just be one of the best holidays of the year. It’s your chance to indulge in everything spooky and everything sweet. Of course, that means your average store-bought candy. But if you want to take your Halloween festivities to the next level, you’ll probably want to make some other spooky treats to share. Whether you’re having a few people over to spend the evening together or you just want to put some snacks out for people to enjoy whenever they pass by, you’re going to love these spooky treat ideas.
Easy Pumpkin Spice Pecan Fudge
When you think of fall, one of the first things that probably comes to mind is pumpkin spice. It’s the flavor of the season, and you encounter it in everything, from coffee to cake. But one place you may not expect it to pop up is in fudge. It may sound strange combining chocolate and pumpkin spice, but once you get a taste of how good it is, you’ll see why it’s such a popular option. Plus, this recipe will come together quickly, so you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen.
Chocolate Covered Pretzel Monsters
Now, do you want to make a treat that the kids are sure to love? If that sounds fun, you can’t go wrong with creating a chocolate-covered pretzel monster. These are so cute, and they’re also painfully easy to make. Don’t worry about the placement of all the different components too much. After all, they’re monsters, so if they look a little wonky, it’s still okay.
What if you’re the kind of person who hates cooking and doesn’t even like eating up the oven? If that’s you, you may be looking for something a little bit easier. Why not make some lollipop ghosts? All you have to do is take a lollipop (yes, store-bought is fine) and cover it with a coffee filter, a tissue, or even a piece of fabric that could look like a white sheet. Tie a ribbon around the ghost’s “neck” (the area right below the actual candy), and you have the cutest-looking Halloween treats ever.
