Recipes that kids love to eat, are easy to make or can be made ahead. Cookies, snacks and menu ideas.

Could you use some ideas for decorating your Halloween cookies, cupcakes and cake pops? Do you like to make the treats that you give on Halloween eve?

If you'd rather bake and decorate cookies, cupcakes or cake pops than make other types of Halloween treats, this article will show you pictures and give you the site address of baked and beautifully decorated Halloween treats to help you. Just bag one of these baked treats in clear cellophane tied with a length of Fall colored curly ribbon and you'll have a treat that you'll love to give. For a party, arrange a group or plate of your decorated masterpieces and display them as a centerpiece.

The recipe for the Harvest Moon Lollipops shown above can be found at delish.
