5 Easy Halloween Treats

5 Easy Halloween Treats with recipes


I don’t like fussy.

I don’t like fussy kids.

And I don’t like fussy recipes.

Halloween treats. I know what you’re saying, “Alice, I really want to find some really easy, sugary Halloween treats to make for my kids on Halloween because there just won’t be enough sugar. Pretty please?”

Oh I guess I’ll help you. In all seriousness-I do this. I make Halloween treats to serve on Halloween. I don’t know why, it doesn’t make sense, does it? But it’s tradition! Here’s a few of my favorite, no fuss, easy Halloween treats. These are really easy Halloween treats you can make to serve on Halloween or for a Halloween party. Even the kids can help!

Take a moment and tell me what your Halloween traditions are at your house? Do you make special treats, a hearty dinner, do you have a special route? Oh and are you dressing up? Tell me what I should be! I am supposed to come up with a costume!
