Halloween is drawing near, so that means it’s time for some spooktacular themed treats! This ghoulish round-up includes a few of our tried and true YOYOMAMA recipes as well as a couple from a few of our favourite mama bloggers. We made sure to include recipes that are perfect options to send to school and some that might be better for at home treats (milkshakes don’t travel well, even the haunted ones).

We love these cute meringue ghosts from Jillian Harris. Crunchy, sweet, and delicious, they are the perfect treat for a Halloween party. We bet you could turn these into pumpkin meringues or Franken-meringues just by adding a bit of food colouring to the egg white mixture. Get the recipe here.

The ladies at A Beautiful Mess are always creating the most imaginative crafts and DIYs and these awesome Halloween Milkshakes are no exception. Want to up the health factor a little? Try making a banana smoothie instead of the milkshake, but still follow Emma’s directions for decorating. And voila – Halloween breakfast, sorted. Get the recipe here.
This has to be one of our all-time favourite ‘recipes’ we’ve shared on YOYOMAMA. It’s a hit with kids and adults alike! The kids get involved big-time in this one. They help pick the monster colours, dip the Rice Krispies treats, and place all the eyes. Try cutting your Rice Kirspies treats into different shapes for more variety in your monsters. Get the recipe here.
We love to send these adorable Jack O Lantern Applesauce packs to school Halloween parties. We know some schools prefer provided snacks to be pre-packaged, so by turning the packets into pumpkins, we follow the rules and supply something healthy and fun! Win-win-win. Get the instructions here.
Strawberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven, even though these spooky strawberries look like they might be from H-E-double hockey sticks. Bonus – they are really easy to make! The hardest part of this recipe might be finding ripe strawberries in October. Get the recipe here.

CBC shared this great apple monster mouth recipe a few years ago and it’s one we come back to again and again. Just be sure to follow your school’s food policy if you are sending as a Halloween snack – we can’t send almonds, so our apple teeth are always made from sunflower seeds. Get the recipe here.

Michelle over at Powered by Mom is our kind of gal – she created simple, but awesomely-cute monster cookies by dipping Oreos in coloured candy melts. She promises this is a really easy treat to create, even if you aren’t great at decorating. This would be another fun one to let the kids decorate. Get the recipe here.
We hope this round up of delicious Halloween treats has inspired you to create your own. We wish you and your family a very happy and safe Halloween!
