Looking for quick Halloween recipes and easy trick or treat snacks? From ghosts and skulls to witches, monsters, mummies and vampires, this collection of Halloween Dessert Table recipes has you covered!
A good part of the spooky fun of Halloween is the decorating and planning process!
It's one of the few times of the year that we can go all out in creating a spooky or cute display. And it doesn't have to be a lot of work!
Expert Tips for a Beautiful Spread
Tip #1: Display your treats at different heights to create visual interest. You can use satay sticks to hold up the marshmallows as well as cake stands or a tiered tray to raise things up. To make it extra spooky, use marshmallows to create spider webs to drape over the treats as a finishing touch!
Tip #2: If you don't have much time, serve a range of no bake desserts. (Click here for over 20 best No-Bake Halloween Sweet & Savory Treats!) Oreo cookies, marshmallows, pretzels, rice krispies and big googly eyes are a great starting ground for making these easy Halloween desserts!
Tip #3: If hosting new guests, use place cards to identify each treat, as well as the allergens it contains.
Not all Halloween treats are unhealthy: let's start with some Halloween fruit recipes first!
