Halloween is just around the corner, and between all of the haunted houses, scary movies on TV, and pumpkins carved up and glowing on doorsteps, it’s really hard not to feel like a kid again! The excitement of watching your favorite Halloween movie comes back is all too exciting, and with it, the rush that came with more candy than you have during the rest of the year combined.
There’s no doubt that Halloween sweets and treats are some of the best parts of the entire year, and with a little extra effort, you can make sure your treats are ones to remember. Whether you make them for trick or treaters, for a Halloween party, or just to have around the house, here are 5 Halloween themed snacks that everyone will love.
Sweet, Sweet Spider Webs
This delicious pretzel and chocolate treat is sure to make anyone’s day.
- On a baking sheet, place 8 pretzel rods in a circle, all meeting in the middle (like a spider web).
- Melt some white chocolate in the microwave and place it either in a piping bag or in a Ziploc bag, snipping off a small corner.
- Starting from the center of the pretzel arrangement and spiraling out, draw your best rendition of a spider web.
- Finally, melt some chocolate chips and put the chocolate in another bag, this time to draw the spider onto the middle of the pretzel treat.
After refrigerating for 10 minutes, you’ll have yourself an adorable spider web treat that’s salty, sweet, and spooky!
Mummies in a Blanket
It might actually be illegal to not love pigs in a blanket. Luckily, we have a fun way of sneaking them into the Halloween party as a spooky little treat.
- Simply cut your crescent roll dough into thin strips, and when wrapping your hot dogs, leave a small gap towards one end of the hot dog.
- Bake in a 350-degree oven until golden brown, around 12 minutes, then use a toothpick to add some mustard eyes in the dough gap right before taking the plate out to the guests.
The result? Some delicious and easy-to-make Mummies wrapped up and ready to eat!
A staple at every Halloween party and so fun and easy to make! To make your own witch fingers, you’ll need to:
- Coat some almonds in melted dark chocolate and let the chocolate set.
- Dip some pretzel rods in melted green candy covering
- Press the dark chocolate almonds on the ends of the rods to become the fingernails, and before the candy has finished completely setting,
- Use a toothpick to indent the knuckle marks for the finger.
Once assembled, put these in the fridge for about 10 minutes and you’ll have yourself a set of delicious, crunch, sweet and salty witch fingers that are sure to get a kick out of everyone.
These adorable little phantoms are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
- Place some pretzel rods spread evenly on a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
- Melt some white chocolate in the microwave, and blob a bit onto the top of each rod.
- Form each blob into a ghost shape—two arms and a swoopy head.
- Press two mini chocolate chips in as eyes before the white chocolate sets, and put the tray into the fridge until the chocolate sets.
This is a cute treat that looks very impressive and fun, but is very simple to make.
Can you tell we love pretzels? Pumpkin pretzels are more candy melted over pretzels, but these are way too cute to not mention!
- Melt some orange candy cover and dip your pretzels in to cover them
- Place them on a baking sheet.
- Press half of a green M&M onto the top and voila—the cutest pretzel pumpkin you’ve ever seen.
Refrigerate for about 15 minutes after assembly to make sure everything sets correctly, then enjoy your very own bite-sized Halloween pumpkins.
