Halloween is a time for tasty treats and childlike fun, and you can make this Halloween even more special by making some homemade edibles that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Many of the best homemade Halloween treats can be made with only a few simple ingredients and can be shared with kids and adults alike. You can try making any of these four treats at home to give your Halloween more pizzazz.
1. Sugar Cookies with Halloween Icing
By following your favorite sugar cookie recipe, you can easily make cookies with Halloween icing. After baking the cookies, you can top them with orange icing to look like pumpkins or make witches’ hats out of chocolate frosting. If you don’t want to have to bake your own cookies, you can buy some premade plain sugar cookies and add the frosting of your choice to them to create Halloween-themed cookies.
2. Rice Krispies Treats
Rice Krispies treats are especially great for Halloween, and you can make your own by melting some butter and marshmallows in a saucepan and then mixing it with some Rice Krispies or a similar cereal. You can then create individual Rice Krispies treat bars from the mixture to serve to your family and guests. To give your treats more of a Halloween theme, try mixing them with some candy pieces or topping them with Halloween-themed icing.
3. Banana Ghosts
If you are looking for ways on how to celebrate Halloween in a healthy way, these treats can give you an extra boost of nutrition along with the sweetness you crave. Simply cut a banana into four pieces and freeze each piece on a popsicle stick. After the banana pieces have frozen to the sticks, you can heat some white chocolate to coat each treat and add some chocolate chips to create eyes and mouths for the banana ghosts.
4. Halloween Trail Mix
Another way to make your Halloween a little more healthy for yourself and others is to make a Halloween-themed trail mix using crispy corn-and-rice cereal, dried banana chips and honey-roasted peanuts. Raisins that are covered in chocolate or yogurt along with candy corn pieces can be added to your trail mix for additional sweetness. Your trail mix can be served in cupcake liners with black, orange or other classic Halloween colours.
