There is so much work to do with Halloween decorations that we rarely have time to devote to crazy difficult party snacks. Good news! I have several easy Halloween party snacks that are really impressive!
Wicked Witch Apples
My son just loves these because they look like the Evil Queens apples (Once Upon a Time). So, I have been making these the past few years. All it takes is:
- 3/4 cup water Dyed black with 1 tbsp of black food coloring
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup of light corn syrup
Boil ingredients until it reaches 300 degrees, then dip . Place on greased parchment paper to cool.
If you can’t find black food coloring, a mixture of red, yellow, and blue will produce a dark gray. Just dip apples 2-3 times and the color will intensify to a black.

Wickedly Cute Cookies
Ok, I’m not a pastry chef, and I don’t pretend to be. I prefer to buy my sweets from the store, but I wanted to throw something together for the holidays.
These cookies were so easy! I just picked up one of those packages of Pillbury pre-shaped rolls. They are so easy to bake that you can let the kids do these.
The frosting is orange Funfetti icing by Pillbury, and I picked up the mustaches and eyes at Kroger’s decorating isle. I also used a few mini chocolate chips on a few, just to show a different variation.
Wickedly Healthy Snack
For a healthier version of Halloween treats, just peel a few mini oranges and stick a piece of celery into the middle to make mini pumpkins.
Most kids like oranges, and anytime you can make food look like art, they seem to like it even more.
Tip: Don’t put the celery into the oranges until right before you hand them out. Otherwise, the celery flavor will permeate the orange and it won’t go over so well.
Remember, treats don’t have to be difficult to make your party a success. You can use easy Halloween snacks and still throw an impressive shin-dig!
