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.
We love how absolutely simple her recipe is, and as Stacie mentioned, with googly eyes, you can’t get them wrong! Plus, they’re edible. (Thanks for trying one, Hoda!)
More fun with googly eyes — follow her simple instructions and this is one the kids can help with too, even if you go semi-homemade with store-bought cupcakes. By the way, you can make them as easy mummy cookies, too.
This is a longtime favorite of ours as far as semi-homemade Halloween treats go. Just don’t forget to use 8 legs, as Stacie’s kids always remind her!
We always appreciate something (well, mildly) healthy when it comes to kids’ Halloween treats, and this clever variation of strawberries dipped in white chocolate is calling our names.
Let’s just toss health, calorie-counting, and carb avoidance out the window for this one. But wow, what a clever idea, and so easy! Find Kelly’s simple instructions including tips for a good cookie dough recipe to use.
