Attention: Halloween season is no longer limited to October. We’re giving you permission to get into the spirit as early as you like. The best thing to accompany you as you’re putting up your decorations, getting your costume ready, and carving pumpkins? Snacks, of course! Whether you’re the type to buy candy corn and Reese’s pumpkins in August, or are looking for less sweet seasonal snack options, there’s a recipe here for you. Check out our 44 Halloween snacks for ideas—they’re spooktacular!

Is Halloween your favorite because of all the CANDY? We totally get it. If you’re looking for more ways to get Halloween treats into your life, try our Reese’s stuffed Rice Krispies treats, our Halloween candy bark, our candy corn cobs, or our trash bark. They’ve got edible cookie dough, marshmallows, white chocolate, and more, all in addition to some of your favorite candies. If you have more of a love-hate relationship with all that store-bought candy, we’ve got you too. Try making your own sweet snacks at home, like our caramel popcorn, our sour patch grapes, our caramel apples, or our witch finger cookies. They’ll hit your sweet tooth without going overboard.

More into Halloween for its spooky fall vibes? Try one of our many pumpkin, sweet potato, or apple-inspired snacks instead of candy. Looking for something crunchy? Check out our roasted pumpkin seeds, our apple chips, or our sweet potato tots. Want something photo-worthy to share with friends? Try our pumpkin deviled eggs, our cheesy witch brooms, or our ghost pizza bagels. More into chips and dip? Try our graveyard chicken enchilada dip, our pumpkin hummus, or our spider web black bean dip. Take inspiration from these recipes to make all your favorite snacks a little more ghoulish. When in doubt, remember: You can put a ghost, Jack-0’-lantern, or spider web on pretty much anything!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkins are pretty amazing. One of their best (and often overlooked) attributes is their seeds! They’re great prepared super simply, roasted with salt and melted butter, but the variations are completely endless. We love ranch seasoning, taco seasoning, or cinnamon sugar for an added pop of flavor.

Apple Chips

Making your own apple chips is extremely easy—even without a fancy dehydrator. Pick an apple on the crisper side to make these, like Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, or Pink Lady. Avoid softer, mealier apples like Red Delicious or Fuji—they just don’t crisp up the same way.

Jelly Worms

This recipe is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. It’s as disturbing to make as it is to eat. But watching the horrified reactions of those you serve it to makes the whole thing very worth it. Because it’s way more fun to scare others than it is to be scared yourself, RIGHT?

Pumpkin Spice Muddy Munch

What’s fun about this pumpkin spice muddy munch (otherwise known as puppy chow), besides EVERYTHING, is you can store it in individual baggies so you (and the rest of your family) have a ridiculously yummy snack ready to go.

Caramel Pumpkin Spice Cereal Treats

Tis the season of pumpkin-spice everything, so it’s only appropriate to give the classic cereal treat the full fall treatment. The best part? Not only are the pumpkin spice cereal treats made with soft caramels they’re also topped with a caramel drizzle. Drooling? Same.
