Can you believe Halloween is almost here?! I have been making a bunch of different and easy Halloween desserts for kids lately and I wanted to share some with you here. My kids have been loving the different desserts and I love that they are not “spooky” Halloween. We like Halloween in our house, but I am not a big fan of the scary Halloween stuff.
Cute ghosts? Yes! Scary ghosts? No way. Cute monsters? Of course! Creepy monsters? Absolutely not.
If you are like me and you like cute as opposed to scary, then you are going to love these easy Halloween treat recipes for kids.
Easy Halloween desserts for Kids:
1. Spider Pudding Pies
These Spider Pudding Pies are so cute! I can deal with this kind of spider any day. These were also really easy to make. I just bought all of the ingredients and let the kids go to town making their own spiders.
2. Ghost Cupcakes
I think these Ghost Cupcakes are probably my favorite easy Halloween dessert for kids. They are just way too cute and very easy to make. They are also a chocolate cupcake, which of course, is delicious. Aren’t these little ghost faces just adorable?
3. Ghost Sugar Cookies
We love sugar cookies! No really. We love eating sugar cookies. I’m not sure which I like more, the cookies or the icing, but either way, they are good. You probably make sugar cookies during the holidays, but why not make them for Halloween? Follow these easy step-by-step directions and you can make these Ghost Sugar Cookies in no time.
4. Easy Spider Cupcakes
These Spider cupcakes were so much fun to make with the kids. They are already asking to make them again. I love how easy they are to make too.

Speaking of sugar cookies, try your hand at these adorable Pumpkin Sugar Cookies. They look like really fancy bakery-bought cookies, but you can recreate these very easily. These would be great to toss in the kids’ lunches or to display at your Halloween party.
6. Witch Brooms
I am not sure why I like these Witch Brooms more – because they are made with only two ingredients or because one of the ingredients is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! 😉 The kids will have a blast making this dessert (and
you’ll the kids will enjoy eating them).
