These Halloween inspired foods are fun to eat, and they help balance out all the sugar kids typically get. I love these recipes because they look really cute, but are actually easy to make.

Hot Dog Spiders

These cute hot do spiders are both fun and easy to make!

You’ll Need: Hot Dogs, Crescent Roll Tube, Black Sesame Seeds.

  • Take a bun length hot dog, cut in half, then cut 4 slits on each side for the spider legs, ensuring part of the middle is still in tact.
  • Then place in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil for a few minutes for the ‘legs’ to spread apart. This helps remove some excess grease too. Then drain the water, and remove the hot dogs.
  • Wrap a small piece of crescent dough in the middle and place 2 black sesame seeds for the eyes.
  • Bake at 350° F for 12-14 minutes.

Jack o Lantern Quesadilla

These Jack o Lantern Quesadillas are also easy to make and can be served with salsa (to look like blood) or guacamole (to look like green goo). My kids love these!

Conchas or Pan Dulce

If you’re looking for an Adult Dessert that goes perfect with coffee, try making Conchas. These do require some time to prep and the dough needs to rise, but the extra effort is definitely worth it!

I hope these give you some inspiration for a Fun and Festive Halloween. You don’t need to work hours on decorations or food, just a few minutes for Halloween Magic.
