Halloween themed lunch snacks

Of course, besides adding pumpkin and pumpkin spice, there’s nothing much you can do to your everyday food to make it Halloween-themed other than decorating it in a certain way, and you like getting creative with your food, then you’ll definitely love this article.

We compiled a list of 30 different Halloween snacks that you can try out, including some healthy for those of you who are afraid that all that Halloween candy will ruin your teeth, waistline, or both.

Here Are the Most Popular Halloween Snacks of 2021

Snacks are our guilty pleasure, and Halloween is the perfect occasion for you to indulge in some of these sinful delights.

They are usually easy to prepare, very delicious, easy to share (if you’re willing to), and they also make for excellent finger food that you can serve trick-or-treaters or your guests if you decide on hosting 2021’s Halloween party in your neighborhood.

Well, if you’re looking for some creative Halloween snack ideas, check out the following section for some ghoulishly delightful recipes that you can try out to celebrate Halloween.

1. Halloween Snack Ideas – Spider Web Cupcakes

Halloween Snack Ideas - Spider Web Cupcakes

If we were to rank guilty pleasure foods and snacks, cupcakes would most likely be in everyone’s top 3, so it should come as no surprise that the first entry on our list is also a recipe for cupcakes, but with a bit of an arachnid twist to them.

You need about 1 hour to make 16 cupcakes, and as far as ingredients go, there’s nothing particularly special that you would need that you wouldn’t usually use when baking cupcakes.

For example, the cupcakes themselves are made using ripe bananas, buttermilk, eggs, water, vegetable oil, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, and some salt, while the toppings themselves only need dark and white chocolate to make.

However, suppose you happen to know a good and reliable cupcake recipe already, and you’d like to stick to that instead. In that case, you can go right ahead, since the only thing that makes these cupcakes well-suited for Halloween is the design of the frosting and not the cupcake itself.

On that note, if you don’t like chocolate, you can go ahead and replace it with something else entirely, and even change the whole color scheme with the help of food dyes.

If you go ahead and follow the step-by-step recipe for spider web cupcakes, you’ll see exactly how all the ingredients need to be prepared, mixed, and baked, as well as learn some extra tips and tricks that can help you make them better.

2. Halloween Snacks for Kids – Marshmallow Monsters

Halloween Snacks for Kids - Marshmallow Monsters

There’s something about making food look like living creatures that makes it all the more delicious, and when it comes to Halloween snacks for kids, few things can be as appealing as these marshmallow monsters.

Not only do they look amazing and fun, but they’re also incredibly easy to make since they’re basically marshmallows covered in candy sprinkles, candy, or chocolate fondue.

All you need is a bag of jumbo marshmallows, candy, chocolate icing, candy sprinkles, whatever decorative candy you have at hand, toothpicks that will be used as handles, and a piping system to lay down the icing.

Once you have all the ingredients, it’s entirely up to your imagination how you decide to decorate the marshmallows, but as you can see, there are specific classics that don’t seem to die: green zombies, purple vampires, blue Frankenstein monsters, plain white ghosts, etc.

If you want to see exactly how you, too can turn these puffy little treats into mini monsters using nothing but candy and you’re creative mind, check out our detailed recipe for monster marshmallows.

Note: Despite being candy, Marshmallows are mostly air, so people will likely eat a lot of them before they get their fill, so make sure you make a LOT of them.

3. Easy Halloween Snacks – Mini Pumpkin Pies

Easy halloween snacks mini pumpkin pies

People love pumpkin pies, and people love small snacks that they can pick up with their fingers and eat with a single bite, so it was only natural that something as popular as the pumpkin pie would get a miniature makeover and become a go-to Halloween snack.

Well, mini pumpkin pies are one of those easy Halloween snacks that you can create with very few ingredients since a lot of them can be bought from the store.

Of course, if you like making things yourself and creating everything from scratch, we wrote an entire article detailing how you can make your own mini pumpkin pies, ingredients, and all.

In order to make the mini pie crusts, you’ll need some almond and oat flour, and some maple syrup, and melted coconut butter to act as the binding agent.

As for the filling, you can make it using fresh or canned pumpkin, garbanzo beans, maple syrup, cane sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spices, and salt.

As you can see, we tried avoiding added sugar as much as possible, and we also made it so that the recipe is great for those with gluten intolerance as well, but if you don’t mind a few extra (healthy) calories, you can also top up your mini pies with some coconut whipped cream.

These mini pies are delicious, and you can make them throughout the year, just as long as you have pumpkins and pumpkin spices at your disposal.

4. Halloween Themed Snacks – Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkin Pies

Halloween themed snacks jack o lantern pumpkin pies

We already talked about how creating seasonal foods is more about how you decorate them rather than what ingredients you use, and the perfect example of textbookHalloween-themed snacks is this recipe for Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkin Pies.

Just like our previous entry, these are actually mini pies instead of regular pies, and the recipe is also somewhat similar, the only noticeable difference being the Jack-o-Lantern-themed pie crust that’s on the surface that may make you feel a bit guilty about biting into them.

In order to make both the top and the bottom crust, you’ll need some flour, salt, powdered sugar, egg yolks, unsalted butter, ice water, and heavy cream.

As for the filling, we’ll be adding a few extra spices compared to our previous recipe, including eggs, pumpkin puree, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and even some freshly ground black pepper to give it that extra kick to the flavor.

The recipe is easy to follow, and you can go ahead and make your own designs when it comes to the top crust. In fact, you can even ignore the whole Jack-o-Lantern design and try a different shape, such as a cat, a skull, or even a pumpkin.

Thanks to the top crust, these mini pies are a bit more durable and are better suited to transport, so if you plan on serving your coworkers at the office, you can carry them without fear that they will be turned into mush.

5. Halloween Snack MIX – Baked Pumpkin Donuts

Halloween snack mix baked pumpkin donuts

Donuts are another example of something that you can easily add to a Halloween snack mix, especially if you make donuts with a wide variety of fillings and glazings.

However, our recipe for baked pumpkin donuts is a lot healthier than the donuts you’d find at a fast-food joint, especially since the crust itself is made to resemble that of a digestive biscuit more than it does a typical donut.

In order to achieve these results, we used pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pitted dates, coconut milk, almond butter, vanilla extract, oat flour, tapioca starch, pumpkin spice, baking soda, and salt.

As for the glazing, we used melted cocoa butter, coconut sugar, almond butter, and spiced tea powder, thus resulting in a recipe for donuts that is somewhat forgiving on your waistline and an ideal snack for those with gluten intolerance.

Feel free to experiment with other types of glazing if you don’t think that the one in our recipe sounds good for you, although we need to remind you that we tried making the donut as healthy and as calorically forgiving as possible (you know, unlike donuts from the store).

You can then serve these with a cup of warm tea or warm chocolate, and be prepared to be praised for the wonderful and sweet treat that you just prepared.

6.Spooky Snacks – Witch Finger Cookies

Spooky snacks witch finger cookies

One snack that has become a staple for what it means to serve sweets when you have guests over is the all-too-common cookie, and we decided to turn these traditional goodies into spooky snacks via our recipe for witch finger cookies.

Among all of our snacks so far, these witch finger cookies are (ironically) the best finger foods since they are relatively dry and they won’t get damaged or turned into mush if you carry them into a bag.

Not only that, but as far as design goes, they are probably the most Halloween-themed snacks on our list as well since, as you can see for yourself, they basically look like bloody fingers with long sharp fingernails.

In our recipe, we will not only teach you how to create the fingers themselves but also how to create the red velvet dressing that looks like blood, and for those of you that are looking for something a bit more ghoulish, they can swap out the red gel food coloring with green and call them zombie fingers instead.

However, we need to mention that you need about 2 hours to bake a single batch of cookies (around 40 cookies), but things can go a bit faster if you have someone to help you with the red velvet hot chocolate so that you can have it ready as soon as the fingers are done.

7.Spooky Snacks – Death by Chocolate

Spooky snacks death by chocolate

Those of you that are hardcore fans of chocolate have joked at least once in your life that you wouldn’t mind dying by drowning in chocolate, and if you happen to be looking for some spooky snacks to make for Halloween, your dreams may actually come true.

The people at Sugar Dish Me did an amazing job at creating chocolate brownies that are absolutely to die for…literally, and they are not only just for show either, they also contain enough chocolate to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.

The great thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t require ingredients that are atypical for brownies, since it contains butter, sugar, eggs, flour, dark chocolate powder, salt, and chocolate chunks.

If you also plan on making the frosting, you’ll need some heavy cream, some chocolate chips, butts, and some crumbled Oreo cookies.

Once you’re done making both the brownies and the frosting, the key to making the entire dish look like it was made for Halloween is to do the decorations right.

As you can see from the photo above, the original recipe called for a haunted cemetery design, and if you happen to find any candy tombstones, skeletons, or skulls, your ghoulish brownies will be done and ready to be served.

8. Spooky Snacks – Halloween Vampire Ice Cream Floats

Spooky snacks halloween vampire ice cream floats

Since Halloween is on October 31st, very few people may consider adding an ice cream float to the list of spooky snacks that they should prepare for Halloween, but if you’re an ice cream lover in all 365 days of the year, then you’ll love this recipe for vampire ice cream floats.

Living Locurto did an excellent job with this ice cream idea since just by looking at it you’d just be sitting there wondering what is more delicious: the way it tastes, or the way it looks?

The best part is that the recipe is very easy to follow, and you don’t need to work with too many ingredients either, so if you happen to have guests over and you ran out of these vampiric treats, you’ll only have to excuse yourself to the kitchen for about 10 minutes to bring out a fresh new batch.

So, if you decide to add this crimson dessert to the menu, you’ll need some red soda (preferably strawberry flavored), vanilla ice cream, strawberry ice cream, some plastic vampire fangs (you can rewash them), whipped cream, some red gel, and straws.

One disadvantage of this particular snack is that since it’s an ice cream float, you have to keep it refrigerated at all times, and even then you’ll still have to consume it quickly since it will lose its consistency and may develop a weird aftertaste if left uncovered.

Healthy Halloween Treats

Even though everyone thinks of Halloween as a holiday during which you’ll go ahead and nibble on a lot of sweets, candies, and desserts, this doesn’t mean that you can do it in a healthy way, especially if you’re the kind that really takes their wellbeing seriously.

Well, we decided to compile a small list of healthy Halloween treats just for you, and we made sure that the recipes are either not very calorically dense, gluten-free, or safe for kids.

9. Healthy Halloween Snacks – Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Healthy halloween snacks keto pumpkin cream cheese muffins

There’s something about muffins that makes just want to eat an entire plate, and most of the time it has nothing to do with the taste, but rather their borderline cuteness, especially thanks to those mini cups.

Well, muffins can also be some very healthy Halloween snacks if you know what ingredients to add, one perfect example being this recipe for keto pumpkin cream cheese muffins.

They contain softened butter, erythritol sweetener, eggs, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, almond and coconut flour, baking powder, the all-important pumpkin spice, salt, and some softened cream cheese.

Thanks to the use of almond and coconut flour, your muffins will have zero gluten, and

you only need about 10 minutes of prep time along with 20 minutes of baking time to get everything done, and the ingredients listed in the article will be enough for a batch of 12 muffins.

Not only are these muffins perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving (because of the pumpkin), but they are perfectly spiced, moist without being too soggy, they’re filled with a creamy cheese center, and they can be easily refrigerated.

Besides, you can have one or two regardless of whether it’s breakfast if you’re having a snack, or if you want them for dessert.

One thing’s certain: your guests will love them, so we recommend that you cook several batches to have them on hand, especially on Halloween.

10. Halloween Fruit Ideas – Clementine Pumpkins & Boo-nanas

Halloween fruit ideas clementine pumpkins & boo nanas

Fruits are nature’s candy, and you can teach your kids to love them if you know how to make them more appealing, especially on Halloween.

Just take a look at these Halloween fruit ideas from My Fussy Eater, as they did an amazing job using nothing more than clementines, bananas, some chocolate chips, and some celery and created clementine pumpkins and something that they like to call boo-nanas.

The great thing about this particular snack is that it’s incredibly easy to prepare, as you can create an entire plate of them in less than a minute.

All you need is to peel the clementines and put a stick of celery to mimic a pumpkin’s stem and peel some bananas, cut them in half, and then add chocolate chip eyes.

Not only do they require very little prep time, but this snack is also very affordable, and bananas and clementines can be found just about anywhere throughout the year.

All in all, there’s practically no way you can make a Halloween fruit snack any healthier than this, so go ahead and make these treats for your kids, and maybe they’ll lay off the lollipops for a while.

11. Healthy Halloween Treats for Kids – Green Lunch

Healthy Halloween Treats for Kids - Green Lunch

Kids have a natural hatred of healthy foods, especially considering how candy is so much tastier, has a lot of sugar, and comes in brightly colored packaging, but there are way through which you can make them go healthy.

For example, one thing that you should try when experimenting with healthy Halloween treats for kids is to either use as many colors as possible, like in a fruit salad, or just one color, like this green lunch that we found at Yummy Toddler Food.

As you can see, everything inside the lunchbox is colored green (except for the spider), and the foods themselves are very healthy and thus suited for a toddler or a child that’s growing.

The box above includes banana spinach muffins, snap pea crisps, slices of kiwi, edamame, and slices of cucumbers.

Of course, if you have other green healthy foods at your disposal, you can go ahead and use those instead, and if you want to try an entirely different color theme, go right ahead!

Besides, one big advantage of modern cookies is that there are so many safe food dyes that you can buy and use in your own kitchen, and many of them are also completely safe for children.

So, if you have one or two foods that don’t match the color scheme, there’s nothing that a little dye won’t fix.

12. Halloween Fruit Snacks – Dried Halloween Fruit

Halloween fruit snacks dried halloween fruit

One of the most popular fruit snacks in the world is the traditional dried fruits. You see, not only do they retain all the vitamins and minerals, but since they have all of the moisture removed, they are easier to transport, there’s no issue with storing them in places where temperatures vary, and they last for a very long time.

Because of this, dried fruit should also be one of the most popular Halloween fruit snacks ever, and as you can see from Allrecipe’spost, they look almost too cute to eat.

The great thing about this fruit snack is that you can use pretty much and dried fruit you want, just as long as you can stick the candy eyes to their surface.

As a reference, the recipe above was made using dried apricots, peaches, but they also included some fresh fruit as well.

You can prepare this snack way ahead of time, even months ahead, especially if you want to take advantage of the seasonal fruits that grow in your area.

Drying fruits throughout the year is also recommended if you want to stay away from the supermarket stuff, allowing you to incorporate local and natural dried fruits, like strawberries, bananas, figs, dates, and more.

Note: Dried fruit is very healthy, but they have a very high concentration of sugar, so make sure that you drink plenty of water when eating them.

Halloween Lunch Ideas

Snacks are fine and all, but we all have to eat some real food from time as well, so the next section of our article will be made up of some very solid Halloween lunch ideas that you can try out for yourself.

As with the Halloween snacks mentioned earlier, you’ll notice that most of the following lunch ideas are basically regular food but with a Halloween makeover. If you like decorating your food, you’ll definitely love the following section.

13. Halloween Lunch Box – Pumpkin Pizza DIY Lunchables

We love the whole idea of having a Halloween lunch box that is perfectly balanced from a nutritional point of view, but we also admit that we love pizza, and if you’re the type of person that shares these two passions, then you’ll love this pumpkin pizza DIY lunchable as showcased by Family Fresh Meals.

If you want to make something similar, you’ll need some pie crust and cut out the decorations using a Halloween-themed cookie cutter (pumpkins, witch’s hats, and other such spooky things will do). Brush it with some egg wash and bake it until it gains the consistency of a biscuit.

Once the crusts cool down, add some shredded mozzarella, some pepperoni slices, and load the side compartments with pizza sauce, as well as a healthy portion of vegetables, especially those that you’d regularly find on a pizza, like corn, olives, or bell peppers.

If you’re bringing this lunch box at work and have access to a microwave oven, we recommend that you heat the box just enough for the mozzarella to melt a bit and get all stretchy.

However, first, make sure that the lunchbox is microwave-resistant before you try this, otherwise, the box might start melting and seeping inside the food, in which case you’ll have to throw everything out and maybe even clean out the microwave.

14. Halloween Lunch for Kids – Halloween Bento Box

However, this doesn’t mean that this bento box isn’t nutritious, since it contains bread, peanut butter, and jelly, string cheese, baby carrots, chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos (without the filling), bug-shaped gummies, ranch dip, and diced celery.

As for the tools used to make the ingredients look more Halloweeny, you’ll need a sharpie, some red food dye, and a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter.

However, in order for this bento box to work, you’ll need to have a lunch box that has at least 3 compartments, and also make sure that one is big enough to hold a sandwich big enough for a kid.

Once you’re done with your ingredients, you’ll end up with a pumpkin-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a box of bloody carrot stick fingers, a string cheese ghost, and a graveyard dessert that will surely fill your little one’s stomach.

While she only included typical food ingredients that you can find in a child’s lunch, like Butter, cheese, and ham sandwiches, peaches, and tomatoes, the key lies in the way she arranged them all.

For example, the hams sandwiches act as the mummy’s body, while the cheese strips act as the bandages, and the sea used seaweed to make the black decorative elements, such as the face of the mummy or the tomato Jack-o-Lantern.

As you can see from the picture above, the end result is hilarious, and you’ll child will simply enjoy munching down on this silly-looking Egyptian pharaoh.
