Create a bootiful and ghoulicious Halloween treat bar to enjoy with family and friends this October with store bought goodies easily embellished with icing and festive decor!
Alright all you ghouls and goblins, Halloween is only a few days away! Time to get out the spooky decorations, festive orange and black, and yummy desserts!
This year I put together an easy Halloween treat bar that is perfect for dinner parties, a spooky evening with the kids, or a scary movie viewing party. All the seasonal treats are store bought with simple embellishments to up their spook factor.
Sure for some of you the best part of Halloween is dressing up and becoming a favorite hero, scary ghost, or fairy tale character, but for others (me included) it’s definitely all the sweet treats. Candy will be plentiful, so for your Halloween treat bar use baked goodies and other festive desserts.
This Halloween treat bar includes:
A Pumpkin Spider Roll
Find pumpkin spice rolls in your local grocery store bakery this time of year and add a simple icing spider web to make it Halloween festive. You can make your own icing or nab these icing pens. Follow the steps below to create the web:
Carmel Apple Slices
Slice up your favorite type of apples and heat some Marzetti caramel sauce for a ghoulicious seasonal treat.
& Chocolate Graham Cracker Cookies
I nabbed these delicious cookies at my local bakery too! If you are a fan of s’mores you will love chocolate covered grahams. Add some icing eyeballs for that Halloween feel or these pre-made ones.
Plus my Halloween dessert bar includes a delicious bubbly cocktail with apple cider for the adults! Head here for the recipe!
Halloween Treat Bar Decor
To decorate my Halloween treat bar, I chose simple decor that was easy to create. First I hung this fabric bunting in black, white, and orange from the sideboard. Then I put together these bat mobiles and hung them from the sconce (found these bats at Walmart, but I couldn’t find them online. Similar here). Next, I arranged a festive bouquet filled with orange, pink, and purple dahlias and carnations. Some pretty gourds and twinkle lights were the finishing touch.
The table ware is also an important opportunity to play up the Halloween look and feel of the treat bar. I choose to mix high and low pieces for a quirky but festive feel, using antique silver and crystal with paper “eeek” plates (found at Walmart, similar here) and gold cocktail napkins.
This Halloween treat bar is easily put together with a little creativity and a trip to the store!
