Halloween Treats for Kids

We are in the season where food is not always going to be as healthy as we want it to be. This time of the year everyone is looking for the best halloween treats for kids.

Aside from Candy, Halloween is a great time for other spooky treats for kids. It is often the start of the “baking” season for a lot of moms and grandparents.

After searching for my halloween treats to make for the kids, I had found some great ones, that I just had to share with you!

My Top Halloween Treats for Kids

Salty & Sweet Witch Hats

Stacy, from collecting pennies, shared this spooky but adorable recipe with me! I can’t get enough of it. I mean who doesn’t love sweet & salty?! Plus, it was a huge hit with my four year old and super simple enough for her to help me make it.

Spooky Halloween Trail Mix

We also loved this trail mix recipe from Nicole, from our robin nest. She really enjoyed being able to help pour in the ingredients and mixing it together. She also loved that she didn’t have to wait for anything to finish cooking. Most of all she got a kick out of the eye balls. If you are looking for a kid friendly sweet and salty mix this is one you have to try!

Oven S’mores!

Kale, from Steak and Kale, shared her recipe for oven s’mores and they are to die for! Perfect mix of gooey and crunchy. I love that this was much more kid friendly then a campfire. Personally, it was much easier having her build the s’mores then having her near a fire. It is also much easier to beat those cravings.

Reeces Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

Jazzy’s Mama introduced these cookies and if you are a peanut butter then you have to try these! There’s not to love plus there is only four ingredients which, again, will make it super easy for your kids to help make them.

Spooky Halloween Bark

This recipe came from Sylvia, from frolic through life, and I seriously can not wait to try it! It looks like such a spooky way to celebrate halloween night. Or also a great way to help use up some candy from trick or treating. The kids will love this!

Halloween Punch for Kids

This punch recipe from Pamela, from Brooklyn Farm Girl, is so easy and delicious! The recipe only contains two ingredients which is why this recipe is on my list!

I don’t know about you, but I love simple and easy recipes. It makes it more fun when you are allowed to let your kids join in on the fun.

Now it’s time to check off baking on that bucket list!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe: Budget Friendly

Pumpkin is in and back for the season! I don’t know about you but I need my pumpkin spice latte but I need it to also be budget friendly latte. With my pumpkin spice recipe, I know what is in it plus it is easy on the wallet.

How I make my Pumpkin Spice Latte from Home

The coffee price does add up quickly though. So instead of spending tons of money for a pumpkin spice latte, I started spending my coffee allowance on ingredients to make it myself. If you are like me, pumpkin coffee is needed.

Making my own pumpkin spice latte was defiantly a learning curve. There was times when it just tasted down right awful. After must needed adjustments, I have found the perfect pumpkin spice latte recipe. So, don’t give up right away and keep practicing.

With using my Ninja coffee bar and little ingredients, I can have my pumpkin coffee and ready every morning.

For this Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe, all you need to use is a dash of pumpkin, ground coffee, almond milk, and a splash of creamer. Sometimes when I’m feeling fancy I even top it off with Carmel sauce.

First you brew strong coffee (I use my ninja coffee bar’s specialty 4 oz button.) and while that is brewing, you can go ahead and heat up your cup of milk.

After heating up your milk put in a dash of pumpkin spice and stir it. Then use a milk frother to get the milk nice and foamy. When you are done you can add some cream if you’d like or sugar.

Last but not least, hold back your foam and pour that milk right into the coffee. Top it off with the foam, additional pumpkin spice, or carmel sauce.

Enjoy it while its hot 😉
