These 20+ easy and delicious, sweet and savory Halloween treats are sure to impress your friends and family and keep them grabbing for more!
Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.
It had to come to an end sometime.
Nothing lasts forever, you know.
Not even Halloween.
And this, friends, is our last Halloween post for this year.
I know, I know. Halloween is still more than a week away.
But you know how time flows in Blogland. While the kiddies are gearing up for an epic treat run, Handan and I will be crafting for Christmas!
I’ll let you in on a little secret.
Inside our house, the changeover has already begun.
And a Christmas vignette now sits where last week there were pumpkins. We can’t wait to share with our first post of the Christmas season with you!
Now don’t get the wrong idea. We haven’t gone all humbug on Halloween! All of our outdoor Halloween decor still stands!
Our hanging ghosts still sway in the autumn breeze.
Our witch legs still greet our visitors at the door.
And Skully & Ratface still crack jokes from their cages as they keep watch over the yard.
So with Halloween in our rearview mirror and Christmas coming just ’round the bend, we wanted to share one last post that will leave a really good taste in your mouth.
Leave the store-bought candy for the hordes on Halloween night—these treats are for you, your friends and family!
I love these ghost meringues by Smart School House – they’re like miniature versions of the ones hanging in our front yard! And you know how Handan gets around ghosts—she throws here hands in the air and makes ghostly “WOOOOoooOOOoooOOO” noises – so she would love them, too!

Witch Finger Pretzels
Or as I like to call them, “Wife Fingers.” 😆

Boo-nanas and Mandarin-O-Lanterns
Ha! The perfect way to get your kids to eat fruit! Just don’t give these out on Halloween night. You don’t want to be “that” house that gives healthy stuff instead of teeth-rotting candy! 😆
To make these Mandarin-O-Lanterns all you need is a sharpie… and of course some mandarins…or clementines…or oranges!
Or if you prefer Boo-nanas, then you’ll need some bananas.
Cheese Witch Brooms
Put a tray out at your next party, and watch them fly!

Witch Hat Cone Cakes
Fill some ice cream cones with cake batter, bake them and then spray ’em black with Color Mist food color spray. The rest is just icing and a cookie!

So what do you think? Which of these Halloween treats are your favorites?
For savory, it’s definitely the jalapeño mummies. Cheese, bacon, flaky crust and hot peppers? It’s heaven!
For sweet, my pick is the witch hat mint chocolate cupcakes. Frosting, people. It’s my kryptonite.
As always, if you try any of these recipes, let us know how it went and send us a picture.
I get lonely here around Halloween in the big empty house, so I need you guys to keep me company with comments and pictures!

All our best,
