These 3 easy Halloween snacks are really easy and take less than 10 minutes to make with a handful of pantry staples. Fun and tasty, they are a great addition to any Halloween party.

I’m not really very crafty with foods as you can see from my Pinterest Fail below haha! But I looked through Pinterest and got inspired to try a few easy halloween snacks. Below I’ll share my three of my favorites. They all have cheese in them, which may or may not explain the reason they’re my favorites!
Exhibit A of my non-craftiness…
For me to be crafty for halloween, I need simple instructions, no fancy ingredients and a quick turnaround time. That’s why these three easy halloween snack ideas are absolutely perfect.
Halloween Snack Idea 1: Mummy Kabobs
Ok this first easy halloween snack is my favorite. When you start, it looks like you’re making just another ordinary sandwich with bread, cheese, deli meat, lettuce, mayonnaise, and oh…some candy eyes peeking at you!
But then you’ll trim off the crust (save them for bread pudding or croutons), and cut each sandwich into 6 equal pieces. Next, you’ll want to carefully thread those 6 square pieces on a skewer stacked really tight. When the pieces are all skewered, you can attach the edible candy eyes. I like to use some cream cheese to stick them on and it works really well here. And there you have it – cute and completely edible mummy kabobs.
Halloween Snack Idea 2: Witches Brooms
This next one in my easy halloween snacks series are these Witch Brooms. I’ve been making these for a while now and I just love that they only need 2 ingredients, well 3 ingredients if you want to get fancy with the chives to tie it all together. You’ll need thin pretzel sticks, cheese sticks and chives or green onions to tie them.
You’ll start by cutting the cheese into thirds, fraying the ends of each with your fingers or using scissors, then inserting the pretzel stick into the unfrayed part. How cute! It actually looks like a toy witch broom!
Halloween Snack Idea 3: Spider Pizzas
The final one of my easy halloween snacks is probably the spookiest. Or maybe it’s just me with those plastic spiders, but they’re definitely creepy! The olive ones are less creepy though, so we can stick to those. Anyways, you’ll be making pizzas here. You can use pizza dough, english muffins, bread, naan or whatever you’d like as the base. Then you’ll need pizza sauce, shredded cheese and large pitted black olives.
Make a pizza as you normally would, cut out the spiders like they’re shown here below and creep out your kids with these edible spiders on their favorite lunch-style pizza!
