21 Spooky Halloween Snacks That Are Guaranteed to Satisfy

It used to be that kids looked forward to Halloween all year long, innocently, endlessly pleased by tiny Hershey bars, small packets of M&Ms, or even a single grape-flavored Tootsie roll pop.


And while kids still go crazy for a fruitful night of trick-or-treating, nowadays it seems Mom (or Dad) doesn't stop with a few bags of store-bought candy. Instead, it's all about bringing your A-game to the sweet holiday, turning out sometimes elaborate, always whimsical treats.

While no one's expecting you to whip up a batch big enough to dole out to all of the trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood (but if you did, you win!), try one of these recipes for a Halloween party or festive weekend project.
