Welcome TODAY Show viewers! If you’re here to find more about the Halloween treat recipes that our food editor Stacie Billis shared with Hoda and Kathie Lee this morning, we’ve got you covered.

We found all of these ideas on Pinterest (like everyone)  and we happen to be pretty picky about what we pin. As far as these 5 treats, we love all of them because they’re so easy and fun, that kids can totally help you with them. Which means they’re not just fun treats for Halloween parties, but you can use them as a DIY craft project during the party.

(Plus, good excuse to get the kids to help you clean it all up. Ha.)

Thanks so much to the truly clever treat-makers from around the web who created all of this Halloween treat inspiration. Be sure to visit their sites for the full instructions, which are linked below — and hey, if you do make them, tag us on Instagram with #coolmomeats and let us know! We’d love to see your spooky handiwork.

That is, if you can manage to photograph them before you inhale them.
