Looking for the perfect treat to take to the class Halloween party? Whether you’re going the DIY route or paying someone else to do the heavy lifting, there’s no end to delicious, cute Halloween snacks you could send to school.


These super easy-to-make broomsticks by Kid Lunch Box literally just consist of tying a small baggie of pretzel sticks to the end of a pencil. Something to munch and something to keep? Perfection.

If your school requires that you only bring prepackaged treats, you’re in luck. Adding construction paper wings and some googly eyes to a package of Cosmic Brownies is just enough to make them extra special, as evidenced by this batty treat from Kelsey Tavo.

If you have the patience to make cake pops, just adding some glittery sticks like Berry Nice Berries does here would go a long way toward making them extra fun. And, really, who doesn’t love a cake pop?

Need something a little healthier? These spooky fruits are just the trick. Note: You could also just use a marker on the banana and orange peels for an even easier idea.


Wanna be the “crunchy mama?” This trail mix by Ashley Havecker of Saving Mealtime is the perfect combination of sweet and salty and comes in those fall colors to fit the theme. Other possible additions: Popcorn, Goldfish, Cheez-Its, and anything else yellow, orange, or brown.

Another great option for a Halloween snack on a stick? Oreo pops! Take a cue from Mama Bear’s Recipes — just pop an Oreo on a stick, dip in some icing or melted candy, and decorate with Halloween sprinkles. Yummy and colorful.

Another option for store-bought Rice Krispies treats is to borrow this hack from creator Taylor Cardenas — use white icing (or stretchy melted marshmallow) drizzles and candy eyes for a mummy look!

S’mores with pumpkin marshmallows, anyone? Remember: Not everyone has the time to invest in creating super special snacks for every school party. There are a ton of businesses that will do the work for you. No judgment here.


Wanna DIY some cake pops? Here’s some inspo from creator Lourdes Jeter! The mummies could be accomplished by just about anyone. But Frankenstein’s monster will require a bit more practice.

Need something even easier? Stick some bats into a muffin and call it “done.” The kids will be happy and you’ll have extra time to do all the other things on your list.
