Additionally, here are a couple of Halloween recipes that are a little less labor-intensive and don’t necessarily involve the stove!

Halloween Recipes: Snack Mix

The first selection is to make your own snack mix, similar to Chex mix but with a Halloween theme. This snack mix should start with any type of dry cereal you like. Chex cereal really is one of the best options but be creative and pick anything you want. You will then add in other snack pieces that you think complement it, such as mini pretzels, candy corn, sunflower seeds that have been roasted, and bite-size Halloween candy pieces for some added sweetness.

Halloween Recipes: Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats

For this Halloween recipe, you can start with store-bought plain Rice Krispie treats (or you can make some using the traditional Rice Krispie treat recipe). Use green and black frostings to paint on the Frankenstein’s face, and you’re all done!

Halloween Recipes: Witch Hat Cupcakes

If you are going to have cupcakes for Halloween, whether as dessert for your kids, to bring to their school, or for a Halloween party, witch hat cupcakes are a really fun idea. You can start with store-bought cupcakes or use your favorite recipe (box or scratch) to bake a standard cupcake. The same goes for frosting. A chocolate cupcake with a bold purple frosting is good for a witch cupcake. You then take a mini ice cream cone, dip it in melted chocolate, and turn it upside down, then place it on top of the cupcake.
