Luckily for you, we at Mother Rucker’s Sweets have a few tricks and treats up our sleeve. Here are a few spooky Halloween snack ideas perfect for class parties or handing out to trick-or-treaters.

Boo Bananas and Mandarin Pumpkins: If you’ve got a permanent marker and some basic doodling skills, it’s easy to turn average bananas and oranges into spooky ghosts and grinning Jack-o-lanterns. Bonus: it’s an easy way to get kids to eat more fruit.

Spider Cupcakes: Turn an ordinary batch of cupcakes into band of cute little spiders in minutes with this recipe for spider cupcakes.

Caramel Peanut Popcorn Snack Mix: This recipe for caramel peanut popcorn snack mix takes a little more preparation than most, but once you portion the mix into small parchment bags and display them in a festive basket, they make the perfect take-home goodie bags for kids and adults alike.

Caramel Apples: Back before pumpkin spice hit the scene, caramel apples were all the rage. Try crumbling a few pieces of Mother Rucker’s Almond Cookie Brittle and rolling your apples in the crumbs for an unexpected twist on this classic fall treat.

Lollipop GhostsThis idea. These adorable, edible Lollipop Ghosts are a toy, a treat and decoration all in one. The best part? They’re so easy. All you need are lollipops, a box of tissues, some ribbon and a marker.

Brew Ha-Ha Punch: Don’t forget the refreshments! Serve up this spooky lime, ginger and pineapple punch. If you’re feeling ambitious, serve the brew with dry ice for a spooky fog effect.

Décor: Just because it’s a kids’ party doesn’t mean some well-planned decor isn’t in order. Serve popcorn from a spooky caldron, and strew chains of red and orange twinkle lights over the snack table. Lay out black and orange napkins and plates, and serve up drinks in Halloween-themed party cups. Decorations are a major part of the Halloween party fun, so don’t skimp!
