Fun Halloween snacks for your little trick-or-treater
Make these spooky, sweet and savoury snacks for your little trick-or-treaters on Halloween (and throughout the holiday weekend). They may not all be the healthiest treats we've ever shown you, but homemade always beats out store-bought candy!
Frankenstein Rice Krispie Pops
These Frankenstein Rice Krispie Pops are so easy to make! Add green food colouring to a basic Rice Krispie Treat recipe and then decorate with melted chocolate and more mini marshmallows.

Candy alone can't (or, well, shouldn't) fuel your family for a night of trick-or-treating. Make these Jack-o'-Lantern Cheeseburgers for dinner and get those tummies spookily satisfied.

These Strawberry Ghosts might just be the easiest (and cutest) Halloween treat we've seen this year. Kids can definitely help make these (and feel free to use white chocolate instead of candy coating).
