5 Minute Halloween Treats

Ghost Cheese Stick

Supplies: Cheese Sticks and Black Sharpie

This is about as easy and simple as you can get and the kids LOVE it. Every single time I do this, the kids love it. The best part is that you just need 2 supplies – a sharpie and a cheese stick!

All you have to do is draw 3 ovals on the front of the cheese stick to make it look like a little ghost. It is simple and quick!

Goldfish Pumpkins

Supplies: Goldfish, Black Sharpie, Ribbon, Ziploc Sandwich Bag

This 5-minute snack is a perfect salty treat to help balance out all the sweets! First, draw a pumpkin face on the front of a Ziploc bag. Draw it near the bottom and then color it in with the Sharpie. Then trim off the zipper part of the bag.

Fill the Ziploc with Goldfish and tie closed with a ribbon. You can adjust the bag and Goldfish so it looks like a pumpkin face on the front.

Pretzel Brooms

Supplies: Pretzel Sticks, Ribbon, Halloween Pencils, Ziploc Sandwich Bag

This is a fun treat because it also includes a little non-food item. My kids love getting themed pencils and they also love pretzels so this is a win all around! First, trim the zipper part of the bag off. Then fill the bag with pretzel sticks, with the sticks pointing downwards.

Place a pencil in the bag, in the middle, and gather the bag around the pencil. Then secure it with a ribbon. This fun treat then looks like a little broom.
