10 Simple Halloween Party Treats For Kids

No tricks, just Halloween Party treats for kids! (and adults too!)

Family celebrations for generations have always had some kind of “Chex Mix” bowl on the table. Whether it was a sweet or savory combination, it was one constant treat everyone enjoyed. Check out this nifty little twist on Chex Mix by using another delicious cereal, Crispix!

I don’t know about you, but I have always preferred Crispix to Chex. There was something more satisfying about the puffy, almost 3D version of Chex! This is the party mix I have been waiting for.

Caramel Corn Treat Mix

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Box of Crispix cereal
  • 1 bag of microwaved popcorn
  • 1 cup of nuts (choose your favorite! Almonds, cashews or peanuts)
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Lt. Karo Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, popcorn and nuts. Set it aside.
  3. On the stove, combine the butter, brown sugar and karo syrup in a saucepan over high heat. Make sure you are stirring constantly!
  4. Bring this mixture to a rolling boil for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and add in vanilla and baking soda.
  6. Slowly add the syrup to the bowl and stir to combine.
  7. Once the mixture is completely coated, spread onto a large baking sheet in a single layer.
  8. Bake for one hour, stirring the mixture every 15 minutes.
  9. Allow it to cool completely before breaking into pieces.
  10. If you are not serving right away, store in an airtight container.

Pro Tip: If you want to make a double batch, increase the popcorn to 3 bags with double the syrup mixture. Bake for an extra 15 minutes.

Big Thanks to Melissa Meraz for sharing this recipe with me!

I love looking at the different areas we already have here in Venice for picnics and invite my daughter’s friends to join us! We are so blessed to live in a place that has amazing weather all year long.

Grab a few pizzas or sandwiches, throw together a few of these spooky treats and dress up in costumes for a fun afternoon with your kids!

Sweets N’ Sprinkles – Keto Desserts!

While my carb addiction focuses on bread, pasta and starchy vegetables, my husband has a perpetual sweet tooth. When our daughter looked at him with her big brown eyes and begged him to be a power ranger with her for Halloween, he knew it was time to buckle down and get healthy too, so now we are both following a low carb / keto lifestyle.

Overcoming his sweet tooth was the major challenge here. His candy addiction had reached an all time high at the time of his oath to keto… so I knew we would have to find something. One post on our Venice Foodies Community group and we received a TON of answers, so we chose one off the list, and off we went!

I met the sweet baker behind Sweets N Sprinkles, Michelle, who bakes cakes and treats out of her home. She is also following a keto lifestyle. Because of this, she expressed her frustration at needing dessert in her life. As a baker, she was determined to find keto friendly treats. I was skeptical, but she delivered in a big way.

We chose her keto sampler box, which comes with a scone, a cupcake, a muffin and 10 mini-cupcake size sweet “fat bombs” for only $15. The amount of time and money it would take to create these would amount to much more. In fact, I highly doubt mine would come out this good.

As if these sweet indulgences were not enough, she also calculates the macros for you! They are listed on her website so that you can anticipate what you are getting. Most treats are under 2 carbs per serving. For example, the highest treats like muffins, brownies and cakes topping out at 7 carbs per serving. (Seriously? YES!) 

The baked goods? Just as fluffy and delicious as their carb filled counterparts without the sugary guilt. We received a chocolate chip muffin, a blueberry scone and a chocolate cupcake with a vanilla icing. (The picture is off her blueberry muffins)

Check out how delicious these look!

The blueberry scone was the perfect breakfast companion to my morning coffee. The blueberries were plump and juicy with just the right balance of tart and sweet. The chocolate chip muffin had large chunks of a semi sweet dark chocolate for a guilt free indulgence. However, my daughter took one bit of the cupcake and refused to share. Even my little princess knows when a treat tastes amazing! (And if it’s low on sugar, that’s a mom win.)

I’m telling you, if you need a low carb sweet treat, this is the woman to call. She knows her stuff and does it really well!
