Halloween Treats for Kids

Making Halloween fun treats with the kids is one of my favorite Halloween traditions. The kids love it and literally eat them all up. The following are some Halloween treats for kids that are easy to make and yummy to eat like Witch Hats, Franken Pops, Eyeball Cookies & more!

Witch Hats

Witch Hat Cookies Halloween Treats

  • 1 box chocolate striped cookies (with a hole in the center)
  • 1 bag Hershey’s Kisses®
  • 1 tube orange frosting

Place as many cookies as you can fit face down on a cookie sheet or serving platter. Pipe the orange frosting around the edge of each cookie hole. Stick an unwrapped Hershey’s® on top of the frosting in the center of each cookie, completely covering the hole.

Franken Pops

Franken Pops Marshmellow Halloween Treats

  • Large marshmallows
  • White baking chocolate
  • Green food coloring
  • Black gel frosting
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Sucker sticks

Stick a marshmallow on the top of each sucker stick, through the flat end of the marshmallow. Melt the baking chocolate over low heat in a double boiler or in the microwave, following the instructions on the packaging. Add the green food coloring to the white chocolate until it is your desired Frankenstein color.

Dip each marshmallow pop in the green chocolate until it is completely coated. Stick the pops in a Styrofoam block or lay them on wax paper until the chocolate sets. Spread chocolate frosting on the top of each pop and dip the top in the chocolate sprinkles for Frankenstein’s hair.

Using the black gel, make a Frankenstein face on the front of each pop. Don’t forget the scar on his forehead and the bolts on his neck!

Spider Crispy Treats

Spider Rice Krispy Treats Halloween Recipe

  • 5 cups chocolate cereal
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • Black gel frosting
  • 8 pretzel sticks

Melt 1/4 cup butter and 4 cups mini marshmallows in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in 5 cups of chocolate cereal. Spread the mix in a 9×13 pan and cool slightly so they are still soft. Note: you should spray anything that is going to touch the mixture with spray oil so it will not stick.

Use a 2″ round cookie cutter or the top of a round glass to make as many circles as you can out of the treats. For each circle, flatten 2 mini marshmallows using a rolling pin. Stick them to the top of the treat for the spider’s eyes. Use black gel frosting to add pupils to each eye.

Stick 8 pretzel sticks into the sides of the treat for the spider’s legs.

Eyeball Cookies


  • Chocolate cookies with cream filling
  • Lifesavers Gummies® in various colors
  • Chocolate chips
  • White baking chocolate
  • Red gel frosting
  • Sucker sticks

Slide a sucker stick into each cookie, through the cream. Melt the white baking chocolate according to the instructions on the package. Coat each cookie with the white chocolate. While the chocolate is still wet, press a lifesaver onto the center of each cookie. Stick an upside-down chocolate chip into the center of each Lifesavers Gummies®. Make veins on the whites of the eyes with the red gel frosting.
