Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Not only is it super fun, but I was also born just a few days before the holiday and enjoyed many birthday celebrations with a Halloween theme in my childhood (and in more recent years, not gonna lie). This is why I’m super excited to gear up for Halloween this year and share some cute and fun Halloween Sweet Treats that are easy to make and will seriously upgrade your Halloween celebrations. For a complete list of fun Halloween Party Ideas, check out Awesomely Creative Halloween Party Ideas to Make Your Party Spooktacular!
Best Halloween Sweet Treats
HALLOWEEN OREO POPS
These Oreo pops are about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and are amazingly simple to make with the video in the post below. Some supplies you will need to make these pops include a cake pop stand – I really like this Cupcake and Cakepop Display Carrier because you can use it for storing cakes and cupcakes as well to save room in your kitchen with a multipurpose tool. You’ll also definitely need Parchment Paper to lay the Oreo pops on after making, so they harden. This is a really fun project and a treat the kids will love!
GHOULISH MONSTER CUPCAKES
These cupcakes look super impressive, but they are really really fun and easy to make. This recipe is definitely one the kids can help you with for great Halloween family fun! For more amazingly creative Halloween cupcake recipes, check out 13 Cutest Halloween Cupcakes!
