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

Are you planning a Halloween party and looking for menu ideas? I have found some easy Halloween-themed recipes and would like to share them with you. I had no idea that there were so many sometimes cute and sometimes almost gross Halloween foods.

Some of the recipes that I found I can hardly wait to try out, like the "Salted Caramel Popcorn Balls" that have bacon in them. Doesn't that sound scrumptious? And, since I love Mexican foods, I'll be making the "Eyeball Tacos." For the recipe for the "Hot Dog Mummies" shown to the right, go to food network.

1. Hogwart's Butter Beer

All the Harry Potter fans out there will love to drink a concoction named after a Hogwart beverage. This recipe contains no alcoholic beverage, so it's appropriate for kids too. Find the recipe at Home Cooking.

2. Rice Krispie Frankentreats

Either buy the rice krispie bars ready made or make them yourself and then do the Frankentreats. Get the recipe at the parenting website.

3. Eyeball Tacos

Here's a recipe that I'm going to make because I love tacos. These are so easily made that they are the perfect choice for a busy mom planning a Halloween party. Go to kraft foods for the recipe and directions.

4. Halloween Candy Bark

Make this as a treat to give to the ghosts and goblins that visit you on Halloween eve, or use it as dessert at your party. You'll find this easy and delicious recipe at Taste of Home.

5. Mummy Face Pizza

The kids, young and old, will love these individual pizzas that look like mummies, made with a bagel crust. What a cute idea--and so easy!! Go to kraft foods for the recipe.

6. How to Make Witches' Fingers

7. Chocolate Mummy Pretzels

Find the recipe at Craft Foxes for these tasty looking mummy pretzels. The kids will love these, so make plenty of them.

8. Wicked Witch's Hat

Just think, first you can use this witch's hat as Halloween decoration and then you can serve it as dessert.....that is if some spook hasn't been taking samples off it. Change the colors of the hat to black and trim it with orange or green for a scarier look. Find the directions and recipe at Better Homes and Gardens.

9. Salted Caramel Popcorn Balls

Included in these salted caramel popcorn balls is bacon and rum or maple extract. I'll be trying these, I think the sweet and salty taste will be interesting and delicious. For the recipe go to COOKING CHANNEL.

10. Shaggy Dogs

An easy and quick treat recipe that you will find on the Taste and Tell site.

11. Cheesy Witches Brooms

Cheesy witches brooms will be an interesting addition to your Halloween menu. Very easy to make and very easy to eat. Find the recipe for making these brooms at Raining Hot coupons.

12. Skulls on Sticks

These would make nice treats to give to the kids that visit you on Halloween eve. To see how to make them, go to all you.

13. Snake Sandwich

Can you just see the big eyes on the kids when they see this sandwich? And you'll hate cutting into it because it's so cute. But, you can find the recipe for this snake sandwich at my recipes.

14. Marshmallow Ghosts

Use the big marshmallows to make these ghosts. Find out how to make them at parenting.

15.Witch's Warts

I know some boys that would have eaten these without a second thought, only because they are called witch's warts. Make these appetizers by finding the recipe at Better Homes and Gardens.

16. Cookies

Add a few spooky spiders to your Halloween menu to make it a real screeching event. Find the tutorial for making these Halloween cookies at About a Mom.

17. Witch's Brew

You'll be proud to serve this punch at your Halloween punch. Find the recipe at Food.com.

18. Butter Nutter Ghosts

You'll use butter nutter cookies to make these cute little ghosts. Go to the Stir for the directions on making them.

19. Wormy Weenie Sandwich

Another great sandwich that the kids will love. Find the directions for making this wormy weenie sandwich at food network.

20. Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

The photo of these mini pumpkin cheesecakes make my mouth water, so I'm sure the real thing would mean that I'd not be able to quit after eating just one. Find the recipe for this delicious looking mini cheesecake at Craft Foxes.

21. Apple Nachos

A nice healthy and fun appetizer to serve the kids or guests at your Halloween party. Go to tasteofhome for the recipe.

22. Quick Halloween Party Items

23. Ogre Eye Cookies

These ogre eye cookies will put the final touch to your Halloween party, thanks to the licorice sticks, white chocolate chips and brown M&M's. Go to my recipes to find out how to make them.

      This lens is awesome. We made the mummy meatloaf last year and have done mummy dogs, mummy pizzas, a veggie graveyard, and more. You have a great selection. I'll be back with my little chef to choose what we'll be making.
