What’s Halloween without a sugar rush? This year, skip the prepackaged store-bought candy and try something more fun and hands-on. Gather your kids, hit the kitchen, and let everyone help turn out some of these whimsical treats that will become a new Halloween tradition!

Cauldron Cake Pops

Cauldron Cake Pops make for an unexpected surprise. Bite-sized balls of cake and frosting are dipped in melted candy and decorated with tiny candy details – bones and eyeballs, anyone? – to mimic a witches’ bubbling brew. These cake pops will go fast – so make sure you have enough ingredients on hand to brew up another batch.

Ghost Meringues

It doesn’t get much simpler than these sweet little spooks. They require only four ingredients to make: egg whites, cream of tartar, sugar, and black decorating gel. Piped into haunting shapes with faces the kids will love to help create, Ghost Meringues are the perfect addition to your fun and fanciful Halloween spread.

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Monsters

Pretzel sticks, candy melts, and mini marshmallows (or candy eyes if you can find them) are all you’ll need to make these adorable sweet-and-salty treats. Your kids will have a blast helping you create these simple, colorful monsters that are fun, funny, and tasty all at once!

Strawberry Ghosts

The surprise inside these delightful treats is the natural goodness of fresh strawberries – a welcome departure from the sugary overload that defines most Halloween goodies. Dipped in melted candy coating and accented with ghostly faces, these berries will become an otherworldly staple for the holiday.
