I don’t think I’ve made it any secret that I LOVE Halloween! Such a fun holiday. I have good memories of trick-or-treating as a kid (ok, and as a teen) and memories of carving pumpkins and doing Halloween-y crafts with my family. We’d always make little ghosties for the tree out of old rags stuffed with tissue and newspaper. It’s funny, now that I’m a Mom, I really appreciate all of the things that my parents did for us when we were kids. All of these activities that I have memories of took TIME and effort! But it’s all worth it, and I know these years are going to go by fast!

One of my other favorite things to do with the munchkins is make some cute little Halloween treats. Everything on this platter can easily be done with kids. Some of the more intricate things, like putting the “legs” on the spider cookies, you’ll want to do yourself, but there’s something they can help with for every treat!

I used this beautiful platter from Williams Sonoma Canada to display all of the goodies. It’s large and lightweight, and cleans up easily. I love it!

Mummy Cookies and Cream Bark


  • Author: Katherine | Love In My Oven
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 20 pieces 1x

Description

You might want to call YOUR mommy after making this cookies and cream mummy bark! Made with only 3 ingredients and only 5 minutes of time, you’ll love it!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white chocolate 
  • 8 Oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup mini candy eyeballs

Instructions

  1. Chop up the Oreo cookies and set aside. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a microwave safe bowl (or use a double boiler) melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments at 70% power, stirring in between until the chocolate is smooth and creamy.  Place 1/4 cup of the chocolate into a Ziploc bag or piping bag, then stir in the chopped up cookies to the remainder.
  2. Pour the chocolate out on to the foil, using the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate out – thin and even. Place the chocolate in the fridge to harden for about 5 minutes. Remove chocolate, then drizzle the remaining white chocolate all over the bark, creating “mummy” lines. Place sets of eyeballs together all over the drizzled chocolate, pressing them in. Place the chocolate back into the fridge for 10 minutes, before removing and breaking into pieces, keeping the eyeball sets together.

Chocolate bark should be stored in the fridge, for 4-5 days.

Easy Orange Pumpkins

These oranges don’t even require a recipe card, they’re SO stinking easy! All you need is mandarin oranges and something green for the stem. I used the tip of a matcha flavored Poky stick, but you could use a green Tic-Tac, or a green Mike & Ike candy. Anything that shape and color will work!  Just take a mandarin orange, peel it, and place the “stem” inside. Voila!

The oranges are ok to leave at room temperature (or pack into a lunch) for 5-6 hours but after that they’ll start to dry out without their peel!

Rice Krispie Monsters

Of all the easy Halloween treats to make with kids, this one is the most fun!! My kids LOVED these. If you have your favorite Rice Krispie square recipe, you can use that, OR you can use the store-bought Rice Krispies to make these even easier.

Use any color of candy melt you want, as well as any color of sprinkle! So fun! These also make a terrific little treat to pack into school lunches.

And we might or might not need to get more candy:)
