Fast and Easy Halloween treats

Duffy Brown here and Halloween is just four days away. I love Halloween and like decorating and cooking for it to add to the fun but who has time??

So I’m tossing out a few easy to put together Halloween treats that take just minutes. I got the ideas off the internet so they aren’t original but they are darn cute. Decorating my way!

Here’s the chocolate doughnut spider that you can figure out how to assemble on your own. I just love these for Halloween breakfast or night treat with hot cider.

Then there’s the pumpkin pretzels that area always a crowd pleaser. All you need is:
mini pretzels, M&M’s the green ones, orange food coloring, white chocolate chips, melted slowly 1 T shortening, to thin out chocolate melt the chocolate.

1 T shortening to 10 oz chocolate and melt in microwave, stir as you go and go slowly. Add coloring, dunk pretzels, add M&M.

Ghosts and pumpkins. All you need is bananas,
chocolate chips, clementines oranges and celery

Ghosts in the Graveyard. finely crush Oreos, sprinkle the crumbs on top of chocolate pudding cup, add Peep ghost and candy pumpkin in each cup.

And add to the decorations by spiffing  up your pumpkin…

Spray the top of a pumpkin with spray adhesive. While the glue is still wet, use a spoon to sprinkle glitter over the sticky surface of the pumpkin.

Hope this makes your Halloween fun and a little stress-free. If you have a fav Halloween idea share below. We need all the help we can get to make the holidays fun and easy. 

Hope you get lots of candy in your trick-or-treat bag! Hugs, Duffy

Great ideas! I love making Peeps S'mores. Simply a snack size Hershey Bar, a graham cracker and a Peep. For Halloween I use the white ghosts. I stack them Peep, cracker and then chocolate and slip them in a little bag and tie with a ribbon. But sadly, tho I would like to give them out for Trick-or-Treating; I am afraid to. I will give them to people I know and I leave them out for guests. All that is needed to melt them up is a microwave!
