These Halloween treat ideas will get you in the mood! While it has been many years since I dressed up for Halloween, it is still one of my favorite times of the year.  Living way out in the country, we don’t get trick or treaters knocking on the door.  Each year I buy a bag of Hershey’s Halloween candy just in case someone stops by but it doesn’t happen.  I have such great Halloween memories from when the kids were little. I remember making a number of their Halloween costumes and then driving up to the center of town to take them door to door for Halloween treats. I remember making Halloween snacks for their classroom Halloween parties.

Hershey’s York Peppermint Patties come in cute pumpkin shapes at Halloween time.  I took several of these pumpkins and frosted them with orange and green frosting.  I love this natural food coloring for bright vibrant colors. Then I inserted a toothpick in the bottom of each to use them as Halloween cupcake toppers.

Orange always reminds me of pumpkins and Halloween so it only makes sense that Reese’s Pieces are part of our Halloween.  I kept the orange and yellow ones for me and used the brown ones as eyes in these Frankenstein Halloween sugar cookies. You’ll need these cookie cutters.

Everyone loves cookies and these yummy Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses worked wonderfully on top of our sugar cookies. You could make a pumpkin spice cookie, gingerbread cookie or peanut butter cookie instead if you wanted to.

Halloween treat ideas - Kit Kat Brownie Trifle

While the kids enjoy the cookies, I wanted a something a bit fancier for entertaining.  I crumbled brownies into the bottom of a bowl, topped them with fresh whipped cream and then added chopped Kit Kat orange colored Halloween candy on top. Oh yum! What a treat for company. What are your favorite yummy yummy treats for Halloween?
