Halloween Snacks for Kids


Mini Graveyard Pudding Cups

These are my kids’ favorite Halloween party snacks. Fill cups with chocolate pudding and cover the tops with crushed Oreos for the dirt. You can add gravestones, pumpkins, and make coffin cookies too! They make many different Halloween themed decorations, so check out your local grocery store for toppings.

Halloween Snacks for Kids


Jack-O-Lantern Fruit Tray

Start by slicing up oranges for the face. Next use a mix of blueberries and grapes, shape into triangles for the eyes and nose. Use the same fruit to make a big happy grin for your pumpkin!


Veggie Pumpkin Platter

Carve out a small pumpkin, fill with ranch and garnish with all your favorite veggies, including carrots, cucumbers, peppers, cauliflower and broccoli.


Mummy Dogs

Wrap up hotdogs in mummy fashion- Lengthwise cut pieces of dough into as many mummy hot dogs that you need.  Wrap 2-4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to look like the “bandages,” and about ½ inch from one end of the hot dog leave open to show as the “face”. Bake your mummies at 375 degrees between 13-17 minutes. Go as far as using mustard to draw features on the mummies face!

Kids Halloween Snacks


Apple Peanut Butter Teeth

Slice up your apples, spread peanut butter on one side of each slice, arrange a line of mini-marshmallows on half of the slices. Then top off with another slice of peanut butter slathered apple to make your big toothed smiles.

**See the picture for Boo-Nanas for a reference of the apple peanut butter teeth too.


Spider Web Taco Dip

Start with making your dip in any way you choose too and spread guacamole over the top. Mix sour cream with enough milk to make it thin and easy to come out of the squirt bottle. Draw your spider web on the top of the guacamole with the sour cream. Sprinkle olives, cheese, tomatoes and green onions around the edges. Place a spider (FAKE) in the center for decoration.  Serve taco dip with warm tortillas.


Gingerbread Skeleton Cookies

Make gingerbread cookies, but instead of decorating for the holidays create skeletons!
