Lately Chloe has been all about baking in the kitchen or arts and crafts. She always wants to make something, color, decorate and bedazzle. Anything creative, she loves. Luckily Chloe has a really cool Nonna that plans special baking and decorating activities when they’re together! Just the other day, we all went over to my moms and she had the coolest set up waiting for us. Together, we made 3 quick and easy Halloween treats that are perfect for kids!
I love a good craft and getting messy, but it’s always more fun when it’s at someone else’s house. The set up and clean up can be a pain, but today’s crafty treats were super easy and didn’t require too much preparation.

These cute hats only require 4 things:
- Fudge Shoppe Cookies
- Hershey Kisses
- Brown decorating frosting
- Halloween sprinkles – we used this fun mix!
Flip your cookies chocolate side up and put a thick ring of brown frosting around the hole in the middle.
There needs to be enough to help the Kiss stick with some extra frosting around the Kiss for decorating!
Stick the Kiss right over the hole of the cookie and press down.
Decorate the hat with Halloween sprinkles on the excess frosting! You can always add more frosting if you want a thicker layer of sprinkles.

Monster Rice Krispie Treats
These monsters are a little messier, but completely worth it! Here’s what you need:
- Rice Krispie Treats – you can make them or buy them. We went premade this time.
- 1 bag White chocolate baking chips
- Coconut oil (optional to help with melting)
- Food coloring
- Edible eyeballs – we had gummy eyes and the little candies that we found on Amazon which were clearly a hit with Chloe
- Frosting to make mouths
Melt your chocolate candies with a small dab of coconut oil in the microwave. Coconut oil helps keep the chocolate smooth when heat is applied. We used the microwave in order to make 3 batches with 3 different colors.
Add food coloring of choice to melted chocolate.
Dip rice krispie treats into melted chocolate! Change up how much is on each one to make them different. You can also cut the krispies into different sized squares and rectangles to make different monsters!
Add eyes, sprinkles, mouths and whatever you want to personalize your monsters!
This last one is super easy, but a big hit! Grab some lollipops, tissues and some colorful ribbon, string or twine.
Wrap the tissue around your lollipop and tie a bow around. Bam lollipop ghosts! It’s a fun treat to hand out to trick-or-treaters and your kids can help make them!
Now you have 3 quick & easy Halloween treats to make! These are perfect for a Halloween party, pre trick-or-treat gathering or just for fun with your family! They’re a big hit with ours as you can see.
