#1. Boo Scotti!
These ghostly looking Biscotti treats from Land O’ Lakes taste delicious and are great for dipping in hot chocolate when you little ones return from trick or treating. Or hot coffee for the adults.
They are easy to prepare, taking just 30 minutes and you and the kids can have fun decorating them.
#2. Monster’s Toes
We love these lime flavroued Monster’s Toes from Kraft. They are so easy to create and are ready in just 30 minutes, so perfect for making with the kids.
You could make them slightly longer to create monsters fingers too!
#3. Halloween Eyeball Cookies
These very realistic Halloween Eyeball Cookies from Food.com will make a great addition to any halloween party or trick or treat bag.
They are very creepy looking but we promise they taste delicious! And the kids will enjoy making and decorating them too.
#4. Dracula’s Dentures
From eyeballs to teeth, we love these Dracula’s Dentures Cookies from The Girl Who Ate Everything blog.
They can be easily created using shop bought dough and frosting or you can use your own favourite cookie recipe and make your own frosting.
#5. Spiderweb Florentines
Watch how to make these creepy Spiderweb Florentines on Martha Stewart.
They take a couple of hours to prepare, including time for cooling, but they are well worth the wait. You will all have fun decorating them and you could add some sugar spiders to enhance their spooky effect!
#6. Jack O’ Lantern
Check out how to make these Jack O’ Lantern Halloween Cookies over on diamonds for dessert.
You have to hand carve each cookie so the kids might need a bit of help with this part. But we think the end result looks great.
#7. Halloween Cat Cookies
These great Halloween Cat Cookies are from Mouse Breath.
Craft sticks have been added to make them even easier to eat on the go. They are simple to make too and don’t require cookie cutters, just a fork to create the whiskers.
#8. Pumpkin Cookie
For something a little different, allrecipes have delicious looking Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. They add some chocolate chips and walnuts to their pumpkin cookies to produce a more cake-like cookie!
Kids will also love these yummy Great Pumpkin Cookies from Very Best Baking by Nestlé. These cookies also have oats and can be decorated with all sorts of goodies like chocolate chips, icing, and candies or enjoyed plain.
#9. Frightening Witch’s Fingers Cookies
They may look scary but they can be ready in just 35 minutes. We love these realistic frightening witch’s fingers cookies from Kraft.
Hand them out (excuse the pun!) to Trick or Treat visitors and see them run! They do contain nuts so be sure to check for allergies first.
Here’s an alternative Halloween Witches Fingers recipe, which are more savoury – they are super easy to make too and only need 3 ingredients.
#10. Halloween Pumpkin Cookies
How cute are these little pumpkin cookies?! This recipe for Halloween Pumpkin Cookies comes from preschools4all, and is perfect for baking with the kids.
Using pumpkin puree and some lovely warming spices(cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) gives a lovely seasonal taste to these cookies – children may not have tasted these spices before, but we are sure they will enjoy eating them as much at baking them.
#11. Halloween Ghost Cookies
These Halloween Ghost Cookies are perfect for making with the kids, both young and old. Kids will enjoy cutting the cookies out and decorating them.
If you’re hosting a halloween party, you could let the kids decorate their own cookies, and take them home with them.
