Appetizers and Small Bites

Food Network’s Pumpkin Cheese Ball is festive and delicious. We like that the crumbles on the outside are crushed cheese balls, rather than traditional crumbles like nuts or bread crumbs. They are extra kid friendly and delicious.

A Monster Fruit Platter is the way to go if you’re hoping to feed a crowd, or you have a party to host. We especially love the eyebrows carved into the face.

Blueberry Mummy Muffins are sure to please the kiddos. Who doesn’t love frosting on top of breakfast food? And they are especially spooky with the mummy pattern and eyeballs. If you don’t have time to make muffins, you can also frost Oreos in the same pattern and avoid the baking but get a similar mummy treat.

Pillsbury’s Mummy Dogs recipe is perfect to go with your mummy food theme, and it’s definitely kid friendly food. They could even help with this one!

Halloween Desserts

When you finish with dinner, everyone likes a treat, especially at Halloween. Here are some of the best autumn desserts that your family will love to enjoy together before trick or treating.

Try these Peanut Butter Spider Cookies, a twist on the traditional Christmas peanut blossom cookies. The kids are sure to love the spiders, and if you use peanut M&Ms, it fits even better with the peanut flavor of the OG cookies.

Make something healthy and sweet for dessert tonight. These Apple Peanut Butter Teeth are delicious and a treat to go with the holiday.

Try some Graveyard Pudding Cups for dessert if your kids already love dirt pudding. This is just a scary version of that all-time kids’ favorite.

Easiest Spooky Meals for Halloween

If what we’ve listed above doesn’t work for your family, or you’re much more low maintenance in the kitchen, then these easy peasy meals are for you. Check out these simple, throw-together options to make your meal time a breeze:

All you need is your regular cheeseburger night and a knife to make these Jack-O-Lantern Cheeseburgers for your kids on Halloween night. They’ll love it, and they’re sure to eat it all if they already love burgers for dinner.

This recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Brain doesn’t even require oven time. Give it a shot to make your kids say “Gross” and “Yum!” at the same time.

If your kids are already obsessed with PB&J, there’s nothing easier than giving them what they want. Just give it a little Halloween twist with these ideas from Crafty Morning.

Food Isn’t Scary

If prepping dinner always falls to you, we get it. But working in the kitchen, especially at holidays, doesn’t have to be something to fear. Hopefully the spooky meals for Halloween above will get you started on the road to embracing holiday meal traditions.
