Every year for Halloween, I like to make the kids a special treat. I usually keep it simple since I'm not the most creative when it comes to decorating baked goods! I make them cupcakes, a cake, cake pops, or any other baked goods that are easy to decorate with Halloween colored frosting and sprinkles. This year, though, I'm inspired to get just a bit more creative and make them some treats that are truly Halloween inspired.
So I went on the hunt for some fun and easy Halloween treat ideas I'm certain my kids will love. I've come up with a list of 18 awesome looking treats that will hopefully impress my kids! All these choices are unbelievably cute, and I think I can definitely handle the creativity part of it! I'll let you know how that goes!
Hopefully these can inspire you to make something frighteningly fun for Halloween!
