10 easy recipes for spooky snacks


From salty to sweet, with and without pumpkin, simple snacks, finger food and drinks: Here you will find recipes to bake for your children’s Halloween parties.

In the night from October 31 to November 1 comes the horror festival: Halloween. The origin of the day goes back to the Celts. At the end of October they exorcised the evil spirits.

Today, children go around the neighborhood in spooky Halloween costumes like witches or ghosts. From door to door they ask for sweets – true to the motto: trick or treat!

Other families hold spooky Halloween parties with their children. And that’s exactly what snacks, finger foods or non-alcoholic punch and drinks are for. But even without a big party, you can make your children happy with our recipes for Halloween. That’s why we now present our ideas for the Halloween party.
