Quick and easy Halloween party food ideas.
Halloween Treats for Kids
Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? If so I have a few easy Halloween treats for kids to share with you today! Wilton and Jo-Ann stores recently sent us a box filled with Wilton baking supplies to play with. I have always enjoyed making shaped cakes, cookies, and candy using Wilton products so I was excited when they sent us a few baking pans, candy melts, edible eyes, and more! This is all part of their 13 days of Halloween series, you’ll find all participating blogs at the bottom of this post. Be sure to hop over and see what they created for this fabulous blog hop.
First I want to share with you this was mummy cupcake tutorial made with Wilton candy and edible eyes. To make the mummy cupcake I frosted a cupcake then used kitchen scissors to trim the sugared candy roll. I placed the eyes on the cupcake first then began “wrapping” the cupcake. It’s that easy and they’re SO cute! My kids loved the mummy cupcakes the best!
Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops
For the marshmallow pop display I used a galvanized metal tin with floral foam inside. I found the printed Halloween ribbon at Jo-Ann’s and hot glued it on the tin, then added paper basket filler to cover the floral foam. The Frankenstein marshmallow pops were a big hit with the kids! To make them I used the Wilton mold, candy melts, and paper straws. I used a toothpick to dab the eyes, his stitching, bolts, and hair on the mold. Once that was set I poured the green candy melts and placed the marshmallow on top. Whenever I make candy with the Wilton candy molds I placed them in the freezer for 5 minutes and they set immediately. This makes it easier to make large batches at once.
Jack o Lantern Lollipops
One more fun party treat I want to share are these Wilton jack-o-lantern lollipops. These are too cute! The package came with 12 lollipops and stickers to create jack-o-lantern faces. So easy and fun for the kids!
One of the great things I like about Wilton products is that they’re very easy to work with. They make things so easy with their decorative eyes, sprinkles, candy molds, and decorative straws.
Here are a few things that I used to make these treats. Ignore the eyeballs and sparkle gel, those will be used for another Halloween treat.
