There’s only six days left until the streets are filled with the sounds of kid giggles, doorbells and “Trick-or-Treat”, and the scariest to most beautiful costumes around. Autumn sure is a time for fun, for treats and for great kid friendly Halloween recipes. We’ve recently added two Pinterest Boards with a bunch of great ideas for Halloween-time treats and recipes, here are a few of our favorites.
Kid fun activity for sure! Fill plastic bowls with chocolate chips, candy corn, mini marshmallows, Halloween-colored sprinkles and maybe even some gummy worms. Have a parent melt a bag of caramels on low and pour into a safe bowl. Slice granny smith apples into quarters or bite-size chunks and insert a stick. The rest is pretty much up to you and your kid’s imagination! See pinned recipe.
Make sure the kids are filled up before trick-or-treating with a little appetizer they can gobble-in right up! Here’s an easy cheese ball recipe from Food Network.
Here’s another simple to make kid friendly recipe for Halloween parties. Watch Paula Dean prepare Snake Bites in her video on Food Network. Looks pretty easy to make and kids are sure to enjoy.
