These spooky Halloween desserts for kids are easy to make, super delicious, and super fun!
I love Halloween. I don’t think I understood just how much I really liked it until this year. I’m not sure why it took me so long!
I realized there are several holidays that I’ll let slip by without going all out on them, but never Halloween. No, I never let Halloween slip by.
I almost always overspend on it, from cute decorations to fun activities with my son and nephews. I can’t help it! If you remember, last year I wrote at least 4 Halloween articles, complete with my very own worksheets for preschoolers and babies.
Any blogger will tell you, you absolutely have to start your holiday-themed articles early so they pick up steam by the time people are searching for ideas. This year I didn’t have time to put together any cute desserts of my own, or even new worksheets (sorry y’all).
The pregnancy and move into the new home have really taken it out of me.
Instead, this year I put together a great roundup post with some delicious and spooky Halloween desserts to make with your kids. I do not own any of the recipes or images shown in this article.
Halloween Desserts For Kids
21. Dark Chocolate Halloween Chip Cookies
This recipe is from Amy at House of Nash Eats.
These cookies look simple, but look oh-so-delicious! They’re perfect for busy moms who want to be festive, but don’t have a ton of time to put together intricate Halloween desserts.
20. Halloween Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
These brownies are from Melissa at Persnickety Plates.
I love the pop of bright orange! This is another recipe perfect for parents who don’t want to buy a ton of ingredients or spend too much time on a single dessert.
19. Pumpkin Patch Brownies
This recipe is from Sara at Mom Endeavors.
How cute are these brownies? Now we’re getting to ‘Pinterest Mom’ status. But really, it doesn’t take long to glue some popsicle sticks together. It’s the little things that make a huge difference. These are simply adorable!
18. Ghost Pretzels
These adorable pretzels are from Amber at Dessert Now Dinner Later.
You really can’t go wrong with chocolate covered pretzels. They’re simple, easy to make, and super yummy! Add googly eyes and you’ve got some adorable little ghosts.
17. Mini Chocolate Bat Bites
These cute little bats are from Chelsea at Chelsea’s Messy Apron.
Chelsea made an entire bat-themed party where this dessert was featured, and I’m super jealous! I don’t know how people even come up with ideas like this, but it’s people like her that keep Pinterest full of creative, fun ideas for our kids.
16. Cookie Dough Mummies
These Cookie Dough Mummies are from Catch My Party.
Again, this is solid proof that adding googly eyes makes anything instantly cute. Without them, these are just regular cake balls. Once they’re on, they magically transform into adorable mummies.
15. Halloween Cake Pops
This recipe is from Food Loverr.
These are bright and bold, but classic. You can’t go wrong with jack-o-lanterns!
14. Witch Hat Cupcakes
These cupcakes are from Tastes Better From Scratch.
This is one of my absolute favorite Halloween desserts around. I’ve seen several variations of these cupcakes floating around the internet, but these are by far the best.
13. Halloween Spider Cookies
These cookies are from Jen at Cincy Shopper.
If you’ve ever been on Pinterest, you’ve likely seen these cookies. Hell, if you’ve ever used the internet, you’ve probably seen these cookies.
They’re widely popular and they’re recreated all the time. I’ll be making them myself next week!
12. Reeses Frankenstein Cupcakes
These are from Lizzy at Your Cup of Cake.
I adore these cupcakes. Truly! Not only are they super cute, they incorporate Reese’s in a super creative, delicious way. And everyone knows Reese’s is the best candy ever.
11. Rice Krispie Treat Monsters
These rice krispie treats are from Debbie at One Little Project.
I can’t get enough of these little monsters. Seriously, could they be any cuter? They’re just the right amount of spooky for little kids.
10. Monster Cookie Pops
These adorable cookies are from the official Pillsbury website.
These look like a blast to make. If you have the patience and you’re willing to clean a ton of dishes afterward, these would be great for a cookie bar!
9. Bewitched Halloween Popcorn
This festive popcorn is from Two Sisters Crafting.
This recipe is a little different from the rest, but I adore holiday popcorn. What’s not to love?
8. Halloween Bundt Cake
This delicious bundt cake is from Jamie at Love Bakes Good Cakes.
How cute is her blog name, by the way? Jamie’s Halloween bundt cake is colorful and fun for kids!
7. Pumpkin Oreos
These cooky pumpkin oreos are from Kristyn at Lil Luna.
The teeth seriously crack me up! These are sure to make your kids giggle. Plus, oreos are the bomb.
6. Spooky Chocolate Vanilla Oreo Fudge
This yummy fudge recipe is from Jocelyn at Inside Bru Crew Life.
Fudge is rich and sweet. While we might only be able to handle a quarter of one of those bars, our kids will love them. And once again, googly eyes are here to up the fun level!
5. Melting Witch Hot Chocolate
This spooky hot chocoloate recipe is from Angie at Big Bear’s Wife.
I seriously want to try this! Angie is beyond creative for thinking of this recipe. I love everything about it. Plus, Wicked is one of my favorite musicals, so this is giving me all the Elphaba vibes!
4. Nutter Butter Boos
These cute cookies are from Kat and Melinda at Homemade Interest.
These are adorable! Nutter Butters are delicious on their own. I’m not sure how Kat and Melinda got the white chocolate to drip down so perfectly, but something tells me mine might not come out the same way.
3. Spooky Bat Halloween Rice Krispie Treats
This recipe is from Kelly at Mostly Homemade Mom.
They’re similar to the Bat Bites above, except they come with a delicious rice krispie treat. My son would fall in love with them!
2. Mini Frankenstein Cheesecakes
This recipe is yet another from Kat and Melinda at Homemade Interest.
I love Frankenstein desserts because the green is always so vibrant and bright. These would be perfect to hand out while watching scary movies!
1. Witch’s Cauldron Cupcakes
These eye-catching cupcakes are from Natalie at Life Made Simple.
I had never seen these cupcakes until this year, and I’m stoked to try them out! It’s one of the most creative Halloween desserts I’ve ever seen, and I just know they’d be a big hit with my nephews and son. Good job Natalie!
