Treats the whole family can make together
Fall means family, friends, and lots of treats! Halloween treats are some of the absolute best!
I can't decide which of those I love most so I like to combine family time with treat making.
To save you some time recipe hunting, I've pulled together 15 spooky sweets that are perfect for the whole family to create!
Low-effort homemade treats for Halloween
Keep scrolling for more spooky sweets for Halloween your kids, and guests can get into!
The great thing about these desserts and snacks, is that they don't have to look perfect. In fact maybe a little mess keeps them scary, if you know what I mean!
I love that this collection has a mix of baked goods and semi-homemade treats. Pick your level of effort and choose a recipe. No matter what you'll enjoy a great cooking project.

These are some super fun and delicious-looking treats I'm sure my kids would enjoy making this holiday season. I especially love the eyeball cupcakes and the Rice Krispie treat monsters!
Aren't they fun! Thanks!

Oh my goodness these are so cute, I can't wait to try them with my three little ones!
I hope it's a blast. Love this holiday!
Oh my gosh...I'm totally flipping out over some of these. I love how simple a lot of these are and yet they're all so cute. Because I'll totally get overwhelmed if it isn't simple. And mmmmm....left over candy brownies. I totally want to make a batch of these right now!
For sure! And using leftover candy is the best!

I love the ideas! They're all so adorable and I'm pretty sure they're going to be a huge hit with the kids this season! They're not so difficult to make either.
Super easy for sure!!

These are all so cute! My daughter loves to cook with me, so we would have fun making these for some Halloween treats.
It's the most fun season to bake with kids!
Oh my word, I love all of these! It’s so easy just to pop to the shop to get a couple of bags of sweets, but it’s so much nicer to make things! It’s also a fun thing to do as a family 🙂
I agree! kitchen time is great family time
