After all of this serious cooking, I’m ready to have some fun! I love finding silly recipes for Halloween. Whether it’s for my kids’ classroom party or our annual neighborhood block party, my family and I really get into mischief with Halloween. And with some kid-friendly, Halloween-inspired snacks to serve, everyone will get into the “spirit” of things!

These skeleton bones (click here for recipe) aren’t for your dog! They are easy to make and the kids will love the sweet and salty combination. Made from pretzel sticks, mini marshmallows and melted chocolate, these baby bones will be gobbled up quick!

Halloween Hummus by Familyspice.com

Not everything you serve to your ghoulish guests has to be full of sugar! What every Halloween party needs is the classic hand-in-the dip! Use your favorite dip or hummus (click here for recipe). For the hands, cut down carrots for fingers, and use the dip to glue down your almond fingernails!

Halloween Treats: Apple Fangs by FamliySpice.com

And of course, another classic, Apple Fangs! If you are using large apples, cut your apple in half, and then in thirds. Remove a small section of apple from the center, fill with peanut butter and use almond slivers for fangs.

    • 72 marshmallows, small
  3. Place in a double boiler over just simmering water:
    • 12 oz white chocolate chips
  4. Stir frequently until chocolate chips have melted.
