Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. You have every excuse to indulge in some candy at Halloween. My focus, of course, is on things I can do with chocolate. But why limit yourself to what comes home in the trick or treat bags, when there are so many great ideas for fun and spooky chocolate treats out there.
I’ve shared a few ideas here. Just to remind you, they’re:
Chocolate Popping Frogs – Strictly speaking, I don’t make these guys for Halloween. I make them because my kids love Harry Potter, which makes chocolate popping frogs an awesome idea. But they work very well for Halloween too.
I have so many more ideas, but not enough time to do them before Halloween. They’ll have to wait until next year. For now, I’d like to share some ideas I’ve found across the internet.
Cookies and Brownies
Halloween cookies are a tradition for many families. They’re easy to make, and a few simple add-ins make them perfect for Halloween.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies – not scary, but they look good.
Chocolate Dipped Treats
When you don’t have time to bake, dipping pretzels or fruit in chocolate may be easier. You can get pretty fancy if you want, but many of these look super easy.
Monster Munch – this one isn’t so much chocolate dipped as it is chocolate coated, but near enough. Variations to suit whatever you have on hand should be easy enough.
Candy and Fudge
I hope these ideas get you going to have a little fun making spooky chocolate treats for your family this Halloween. It’s so much fun surprising everyone with an unexpected treat. Other times it’s more fun making them together. Get creative with your use of ingredients and see how you can change these up for your family.
