No tricks, just our favorite classroom-friendly treats. 

There’s no doubt about it, Halloween is one of the best days of elementary school. Getting to eat sweets and dress up in fun costumes is pretty much every kid’s dream, especially if they’ve been planning their outfit for weeks. But between making the costumes, planning for any adult parties, and buying the candy for Trick or Treating, baking treats for classroom parties can often fall to the bottom of the to-do list. That’s why we rounded up a collection of easy desserts that look impressive but can be whipped up at the last minute. Because Halloween food can range from incredibly creepy to super cute, we included a wide range of treats so there’s something for everyone, no matter what vibe you’re going for. Plus, we think you’ll love these enough to keep some at home, too, and they can double as dessert for other Halloween potlucks or parties. We also have a delicious Apple Cider Donut recipe that you can enjoy for breakfast before sending them to school with the kids. Speaking of the kids, be sure to have them help you prep the treats. They’ll have fun cutting out candy corn-shaped cookies, rolling popcorn into balls, cutting out donuts, swirling chocolate and pumpkin batter, and decorating Frankenstein cupcakes. Not only will their help speed up the process, but being in the kitchen with kids is a great habit to get into. If you start the tradition when they’re little, making Halloween goodies can become a fun annual project.
