Kid-friendly Halloween Party Food

on November 4, 2014


Our Halloween party this year featured a variety of adult- and kid-friendly treats. I have to give big props to my mom and sister for their creative spirit in helping to make our great treat spread happen!

Here’s the breakdown of what’s pictured above:

  • Jack-o-lantern puffs: Great as party treats or take-home favors (see the how-to here)
  • Pb&j Halloween cutout sandwiches: A loaf of white bread and a loaf of wheat bread, strawberry and seedless boysenberry jam, reduced fat peanut butter and a selection of Halloween cookie cutters were all it took to whip up 20 kid-friendly snacks
  • Spider cookies: Make these simple adorable cookies with a peanut butter cookie box mix, chocolate candy balls, candy eyes and black icing gel
  • Character cookies: If you are feeling adventurous, make and decorate some cutout sugar cookies with the kids, or find a great local bakery and buy some festively decorated cookies like we did
  • Halloween brownies: Bake your favorite box mix and decorate with orange frosting and Halloween sprinkles

I also recommend our Halloween seven-layer dip that was featured separately (see “Halloween Twist on 7 Layer Dip“).

This selection of treats combines simple homemade, semi-homemade and store-bought goodies to make your Halloween party prep manageable while creating a memorable spread for your adult and kid party guests alike.

Time to start planning for next Halloween!
