34 Easy and Fun Fall Treats
These fun little snacks are easy as can be with only 2 ingredients and a clear, food-grade glove!
I can see these being a big hit at family Thanksgiving or a class party this fall.
Make it even better with homemade popcorn and a little craft paper for the beak and waddle. Use a sharpie for the eye and everyone will be in love with these little turkeys!
I love a good Tootsie Roll Pop at Halloween. In fact, it's the only time I ever eat them! I think I would enjoy them even more if they started out as a tissue paper ghost!
These easy fall treats would be perfect for a classroom gift bag, to keep at your desk at work, or to give away to neighbors at Halloween!
I made these a few weeks ago and my husband told me I should always make our Rice Krispie Treats this way from now on! Win! Plus, they are just crazy adorable!
You can do the same thing with store-bought rice krispie treats and a small metal cookie cutter. Cut the shapes out and dip them in dark chocolate.
If the cutter won't cut through, just heat the rice krispie treat in the microwave for about 10 seconds and try again.
These are the perfect last-minute fall treat with a huge WOW factor! Just dip some pretzel sticks in melted chocolate and roll in fall-colored sprinkles. Let them cool for about 30 minutes and you're done! So easy!
You can present them as shown below (a glass jar with a turkey face and filled with chocolate-covered raisins) or you can rap 3-5 finished pretzels in a clear cellophane bag and tie it shut with a fall-colored ribbon. A perfect gift for anyone!
4 ingredients for this fun and easy snack! I'd probably make these for a party instead of a lunchbox since the wings would probably get clipped during the journey from home to school!
I just can't get enough of these turkey treats. This one looks especially sweet with the use of two different sizes of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
If you want to control the sugar a bit more, you can use homemade peanut butter cups in two sizes instead, but the Reese's Pieces will still need to be store-bought!
7. Owl Cupcakes
These could easily be made with store-bought cupcakes! Or you could make homemade cupcakes too. Either way, add a few Homemade Oreos, and some fall-colored M&M's, and that regular cupcake turns into something that is just too cute!
Adding a candy corn pumpkin to this classic treat lends the perfect touch of fall!
Plus, this recipe is a no-bake recipe so you can whip it up in no time for a quick fall-themed snack any day of the week!
I'm a sucker for Rice Krispie Treats and Chocolate, so these are definitely right up my alley!
Add a little natural orange food coloring to the mix as the rice krispies are being made, then press into a circle tin. Once they are cooled, you can cut them like a pie and dip them into melted white and dark chocolate!
11. Candy Corn Jello
I'm thinking you might be able to make this with pre-made jello too. Just cut it into chunks, then combine the two colors into a new container. Or you could make it yourself and get that smooth seam!
Top with some homemade or canned whipped cream and a single candy corn candy for a delicious snack!
But even if you're not into all things Harry Potter, these would be a really fun (and delicious) snack for any time of the day!
13. Pretzel Pumpkins
I just love these! White chocolate, a little orange food coloring (here's some all natural food coloring), and you're done!
You could make a ton of these and just give a few each day with lunch, or put them in little cellophane bags to give away in bulk!
LOVE THESE! I mean, how much easier could it get? Pop open a can, add a little food coloring and you have a fun start to any morning!
If you want to make cinnamon rolls from scratch, here is our tried-and-true recipe that's always a crowd-pleaser!
You can also make homemade marshmallows with sugar, maple syrup, or honey to really customize the experience.
Owls, ghosts, and mummies, OH MY! Who knew a simple chocolate-covered pretzel could be so many things?
These would be a great addition to a fall-themed charcuterie board for a game night or Halloween party!
Just a bit of melted chocolate and some printer paper can turn into these magical treats! Get the free printable chocolate frog box here, and use some chocolate frog molds to fill with solid melted chocolate, or with peanut butter-filled chocolate, or even marshmallow-filled chocolate!
You really can't go wrong here, and the packaging pulls it all together perfectly!
I love puppy chow, and this variation looks amazing too! A sweet and salty combination of buttery popcorn, peanut butter Reese's pieces, crunchy pretzels, and delightful honey... this mix is sure to please everyone!
Of course, nothing goes together better than peanut butter and chocolate, so I'd probably throw in a bunch of chocolate chips in there too!
Talk about a quick and easy treat! Just grab some donut holes and dip them in melted chocolate, add a pretzel stick and a few fall sprinkles for an adorable and FAST fall treat!
If you want to make your own homemade donuts, use my tried-and-true recipe for the perfect yeast donuts every time.
These are just like the pumpkin pasties, but filled with apple pie instead! Yum!
You can top these with an icing glaze for a sweeter treat, or leave them as is and serve them alongside bacon and eggs for breakfast!
Another fabulous dip-and-done snack idea! A little white chocolate and some edible candy eyes and you're done!
These would make a great gift too, just put 3-5 into a cellophane bag and tie it with a spooky Halloween ribbon!
A fun "twist" on crescent roll treats! Same ingredients as the pumpkin pie crescents from earlier, but a fun new shape! And of course, topped with icing :-)
You probably had dirty cups as a kid, I think we all did. And this fun fall version sure stirs up the memories! I think I'd like the fall version better, to be honest!
For a really over-the-top homemade experience, you can even make homemade Oreos for the topping!
What?! I never would have thought to turn a cookie and a piece of chocolate into an acorn treat! So fun!
25. Mummy Milanos
Mint Milanos are pretty high on my list of favorite copycat treats that I make from home, and these Mummy Milanos have me running to the kitchen to make some! Or course, it didn't take much to convince me that I needed some Mint Milanos ;-)
You could even dip them in dark chocolate for werewolves or vampires!
I love caramel corn any old day, but fall-themed caramel corn is even better! You could throw in any of your favorite fall treats and I bet it would be amazing!
Make a big batch of homemade popcorn for a really fresh popcorn taste!
Low Sugar Fall Snack Options
The Halloween season is basically a full-time sugar high, right? So if you're looking to combat that a little bit while still giving some fun fall-themed snacks, then this section is for you!
Keep your kids in the Halloween spirit, without getting them all hopped up on sugar with these adorable mason jar snacks! 5 adorable options will let you rotate out these healthy Halloween snacks all month!
"Grape-nstein", apple Dracula and more come alive with just a Sharpie and a mason jar!
You'll also learn the simple trick to quickly and easily removing Sharpie from glass so that you can use the same jars over and over again!
Love this fruit cup! And if you wanted to cut out the whipped cream, you could use sliced banana for the lighter layer! You could also serve it in a half-pint mason jar so that you're not giving so much fruit all at once.
I don't think you could find an easier fall-themed snack. Perfect for every day, since it's just a single orange - and the peel is going to come off anyway, so you can use the Sharpie directly on the outside!
A delightful little treat that can go into a lunchbox, or can be piled into a bowl on the counter. Either way, super fun and easy!
30. Hot Dog Spiders
These are made with Applegate hotdogs (all natural, you can even get grass-fed organic hot dogs from Applegate!), so I'm automatically disposed to like the.! I bet there are a lot of kids who would just love to have these for lunch!
You can use store-bought or homemade biscuits for this recipe, we like to make homemade since we are only able to eat einkorn wheat!
You could make several of these Witch's Brooms out of a single stick of string cheese!
Add a pretzel stick and a little sprig of fresh chives for a savory fall snack or addition to a charcuterie plate!
Make a little cluster of homemade granola and add two homemade edible eyes for these cute little monster clusters!
33. Cheesy Ghosts
Just a sharpie and 30 seconds gets you a fun fall lunchbox addition or a classroom snack!
Pair them with an apple Dracula and a lollipop ghost for the ultimate Halloween snack.
Cute! I never would have thought to use a celery stick for this! I also really love the fact that if you take the time to remove all the white parts, a peeled orange very closely resembles a pumpkin!
