10 easy recipes for awesome snacks


From savory to sweet, pumpkin and pumpkin-free, simple snacks, finger foods and drinks: Here you’ll find recipes to cook for your kids’ Halloween parties.

From October 31st to November 1st, the horror festival is coming: Halloween. The origin of the day goes back to the Celts. At the end of October, they expelled the evil spirits.

Today, children walk around the neighborhood in scary Halloween costumes like witches or ghosts. They go door to door asking for sweets – they stick to the motto: trick or treat!

Other families organize spooky Halloween parties with their children. That’s what snacks, finger foods or non-alcoholic punch and drinks are for. But even if you don’t have a big party, you can make your kids happy with our recipes for Halloween. That’s why we’re now presenting our Halloween party ideas.
