Quick Halloween Treats
How to make: Mix up vanilla pudding with green food coloring and fill plastic cups halfway up. (the first one I filled 3/4 of the way up and it was way too much pudding for a small kid to finish)
Next crush up oreos to sprinkle on top.

Ghost or Mummy Cookies
What you need: Nutter butter cookies, white chocolate, and chocolate chips or candy eyes.
How to make: Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. (my favorite chocolate is the Ghirardelli chocolate) be careful not to burn.
Mummy: put chocolate chip eyes on with a little bit of white chocolate and then drizzle white chocolate across the cookie to look like a mummy.
Ghost: Dunk the full cookie in the white chocolate and then apply the eyes. (Add a little bit of crisco to the chocolate to make it thinner and easier to dip).
Pumpkin Rice Krispie balls:
What you need
- Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 Bag of Marshmallows
- Red & yellow food coloring (or natural food coloring)
- 18-20 tootsie rolls unwrapped
- Frosting for leaves is powdered sugar, green food coloring, and a little milk (or water).
How to make: First simply follow the rice krispies treats recipe on the back of the box. When your marshmallows are nice and melty add red and yellow purchased or homemade food coloring until you reach a pumpkin orange color.
Next stir the cereal into the marshmallow mixture, rub some butter on the palms of your hands and roll the mixture quickly into balls. I placed more butter on my hands between rolling each ball. Place a tootsie roll in the center of each pumpkin and garnish with frosting leaves.
With my left over white chocolate I made chocolate covered pretzels, a standard favorite in my household. To make them a little more festive I bought fall colored sprinkles.
There you go. Four very simple, yet darling halloween treats. It's not too late to whip up something festive for your kiddos.
