Over the years I have compiled a few Halloween recipes here on the The Kitchen Magpie, but it’s not actually my-end-all-be-all holiday. I live for Christmas, so often Halloween is an afterthought when it comes to recipes!  However I do love a good trip for Halloween in Disneyland, of course! So since I don’t post that many, here is a round-up of my Halloween recipes for you all! They are all super easy and fast to make! You will have to excuse some of the super old and terrible photos on these and in some you can see how little my kids are!! Sniffle, they grow up too fast, darn it!

1.Pretzel and Marshmallow Bones

Fast easy and adorable these are always a hit!

2.Spookily Sprinkled Popcorn Balls

I had a neighbor that gave out popcorn balls (ah the good ol’s days when you could do that and your parents let you eat them!) and they are my favorite treat!

4 pieces of Spookily Sprinkled Popcorn Balls

3.Halloween Mice Cupcakes

I hate mice, so these cupcakes gross me right out. But by using gummy mice you save a ton of time and they look, well, eww. I used homemade cake and icing but hey, go ahead and use store bought to save time!

4.Buggy Caramel Popcorn

The base caramel popcorn recipe is sooo good, just throw a few candy bugs on it for Halloween!
