Trick-or-treat season is finally upon us!! We are so excited for all the Halloween festivities we have planned these next few weeks, we have an activity planned for us nearly every day – so far, I'm loving Halloween in the PNW. If you haven't subscribed to our newsletter yet, you've been missing out on our 31 Days Of Halloween. We have been having so much fun sharing daily Halloween inspiration to our readers. If you're wanting to still join in on the fun, it's not too late click here! Today, I've gathered five of our favorite spooky treat ideas for those of you hosting parties, contributing to parties or looking to make Halloween a bit more fun around your home. 

Spooky Popcorn// I remember one year during Halloween, my mom's friend made popcorn balls for us and they were amazing. I've been obsessed with sweet and salty popcorn treats ever since. And from experience, everyone else loves sweet&salty too. We made this same chocolate popcorn mix for Lyla's first birthday and it was all gone before the party was even over. This time around we've put a bit of a spooky spin on it by adding googly eye sprinkles. We pop our own popcorn here 3Tbs of canola oil + 1/2 cup of white popcorn kernels ( we use Orville Redenbacher). While that's popping, lay down a large sheet of parchment paper and tape the corners. In a large bowl mix the popcorn, Original Chex cereal, and pretzels together. In a double boiler begin to melt white chocolate. Distribute half of the popcorn mixture across the parchment paper making and drizzle this first layer with melted chocolate. Add the remaining popcorn mix while chocolate is still wet and lather the rest of the white chocolate over the top and add your choice of festive toppings (googly eyes, Halloween sprinkles, candy corn, etc.) Let harden for about 20 minutes and break into different sizes. This treat is so easy and super addicting!  

Spiderweb Brownies // This is my next go-to dessert for Halloween because how could anyone pass up brownies, am I right? A quick and easy recipe. Also, I love that the spiderwebs aren't a heaping clump of frosting. 

Halloween Boo-berry Mummy Muffins // Uhm. I will just say right now that my mouth is watering thinking of these. This recipe is a two in one for hosts! I mean, who wants to think about cooking breakfast after a long night? 

Frozen Boo-Nanas // These are sooo cute and I love this healthier option for our littlest one. Also, I can't help but think about the frozen bananas they sell at Magic Mountain, and now I'm wondering, why are these not a thing for Fright Fest? 

Witch Finger Pretzels // Slightly creepy, but totally irresistible and with only three ingredients these are super easy to make. Perfect for a Hocus Pocus kinda night. 

I would love to know if you guys try any of these or have any themed treats that you love!
