Learn about 5 Halloween desserts for kids that are sure to be a hit. Kids will love these spooky desserts and they can even help make them, if you're up for the challenge. They make a perfect dish to eat before heading out for some trick-or-treating, or a great addition to a Halloween party.
- Spider cake. All you need for this dessert is a round cake. Cover it with frosting in your choice of color and then use a second frosting to draw a web on the cake. Make a second, smaller cake in a bowl to use as the spider. Cover the "spider" with black frosting. The eyes and nose of the spider can be made with small candies. Add black licorice legs and small pieces of red licorice for the spider's fangs.
- Jiggly eyeballs. These eyeballs are a popular Halloween dessert for kids. Simply make yellow gelatin, pour it into rounded ice cube trays and allow it to partially set for about 30 minutes. Add a blueberry in each cube for the pupil and refrigerate for about 60 minutes or until completely set.
- Worm and dirt dessert. This is one Halloween dessert that your kids are sure to love. To prepare, just crush one package of black cream-filled cookies. Prepare chocolate pudding and mix with half the crushed cookies. Fill a dessert cup about half full with this mixture. Add crushed cookies to the top. Finish with some whipped cream if desired, and add gummy worms just before serving.
- Banana bugs. Halloween desserts that the kids can create themselves are always a good choice. To make these fun little bugs, give each child a banana and pretzels to use for legs and antennae. Use peanut butter to make the eyes and dot the length of the banana. Use raisins or candies as eyes and to stick on the back of the "bug" for a little decoration.
- Miniature pumpkin pies. Kids will enjoy having their own little pie when you make these Halloween desserts. Use individual pie pans lined with pie crust. Add canned pumpkin pie filling and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Add candy corn pieces or other small, decorative Halloween candy to the top.
