35 Frightfully Easy No-Bake Halloween Treats

Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year, but it can also be a lot of work — from finding the right costume to decorating your home to carving pumpkins to throwing an extra scary monster bash (we’re tired just reading that). But we’ve got quite the trick to help you in the treat department this year: no bake Halloween desserts. Thirty-five Halloween treats, to be exact, all of which are frightfully easy to make.

1. Witch Fingers: Meet Halloween’s version of the lady finger, whose best features might surprise you. This creepy digit is vegan. It’s raw. It’s healthy! (via Choosing Raw)

2. Creepy Petit Fours: Nothing says Halloween quite like a smattering of bite-sized blood. Shards of sugar make a just-as-creepy cake topper. (via Brit + Co)

3. Mummy Truffles: These mummy truffle bites don’t have a trace of “scary” thanks to the decadent pumpkin cheesecake filling. (via Creme de la Crumb)

4. Reese’s Peanut Butter Shooters: Take your favorite Halloween candy up a notch with some chocolate vodka. Just make sure to pick up a skull-imprinted ice cube tray ahead of time. (via Brit + Co)

5. Apple Teeth: Few snacks are as satisfying as apples and peanut butter. Put a spooky (and dental) spin on this winning flavor combo by adding fluffy fangs. (via Mom.me)

6. Blood and Bones Cocktail: What could be creepier than bone-inspired jello shots? Let them float in a blood-red cocktail. Cheers! (via Brit + Co)

7. Easy Pumpkin Patties: Whip up these festive homemade candies for a treat that will put your actual Halloween candy to shame. Each bite is as buttery and sugary as the last. (via Mom on Timeout)

8. Homemade Candy Bars: In case your local grocery store is all out of your favorite Halloween candy, you can make your own! (via Brit + Co)

9. Salted Caramel Candy Corn Bark: Looking for an easy-to-make treat that is both salty and sweet? Look no further. This Halloween-friendly bark will do the trick. (via I Heart Naptime)

10. Peanut Butter Candy Corn Bark: Just in case caramel’s not your thing. ;) Plus, you can’t go wrong with pretzels and PB. (via Something Swanky)

11. Spiderweb Cheesecake: The itsy bitsy spider… ended up on your Halloween cheesecake. That you didn’t have to bake. (via Epicurean Mom)

12. Oreo Spiders: Serve this eight-legged Oreo alongside a slice of your webby cheesecake. (via Mom.me)

13. Candy Corn Popcorn: Since we can’t enjoy candy corn year-round, let’s go candy corn overboard this whole month. This no-bake doubles the fun with candy corn popcorn served in a tricolor waffle cone. (via Brit + Co)

14. Nutter Butter Mummy: This is one mummy we HOPE returns… (via My Momma Told Me)

15. Pumpkin S’moreos: Here’s a crazy idea: Let’s combine summer’s favorite treat with milk’s favorite cookie and Halloween’s favorite flavor. Yum, yum, yum. (via Brit + Co)

16. Halloween Chocolate Bars: Did you know you could make candy corn- and Oreo-filled brownies without using your oven? This is turning into the best Halloween ever. (via Homemaking Hacks)

17. Gummy Worm Ice: Don’t like creepy crawlers? Trap them in ice for the perfect cocktail garnish. (via Brit + Co)

18. Black Cat Cookies: Our favorite thing about these ominous feline bites is that the cookies are pre-made. And totally smothered in melted chocolate. Me-ow. (via Hungry Happenings)

21. Frankengoblin Jello Shots: Oreos. Jello. Are you sensing a theme here? These cookie jiggler shooters will scare your socks off. (via Brit + Co)

22. Candy Corn Peanut Butter: Peanut butter on its own is nearly impossible to resist. Add in a generous helping of candy corn? Pass the spoon! (via A Taste of Madness)

23. Butterfinger Fudge: Here’s another homemade (and more adult) spin on one of Halloween’s staple sweets. (via A Bajillion Recipes)

24. Pumpkin Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites: Pumpkin and peanut butter is like Halloween’s version of the PBJ. As if that isn’t reason enough, top ’em off with pretzels for a little bit of crunch. (via Fresh April Flours)

25. Homemade Almond Joy and Mounds Bars: It seems these candy bars only make an appearance come Halloween. But we’re willing to bet the homemade kind will stick around all year. They’re that good. (via Marin Mama Cooks)

26. Vegan Twix Bars: Something tells us the word “healthy” never comes to mind when you’re eating a Twix. That’s all about to change. (via Healthful Pursuit)

27. Cheerios and Chocolate Tart: You’re never too old for a helping of Cheerios. Especially when they’re looking at you from this jack-o’-lantern tart. (via Family Fresh Cooking)

28. Halloween Monster Marshmallows: These sweet desserts are about as no-bake as it gets. Plus, you only need four ingredients: candy eyes, candy melts, oil, and marshmallows. (via Finding Zest)

33. DIY Halloween Monster Apple Bites: This kid-friendly DIY is only *kinda* creepy. It’s also really cute, and a surprisingly healthy Halloween stack: It’s made from apples, peanut butter, strawberries, corn, and — you guessed it — candy eyes. (via Unicorn Hat Party)

34. Peanut Butter Zombie Eyeballs: It may be hard to believe, but these super-cool zombie eyeballs are simple to make. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to prepare them before your big party: They’ll need at least an hour or two to make, including chill time in the fridge. (via Inside BruCrew Life)

35. 10-Minute No-Bake Cheesecake: Can you believe this cheesecake takes only 10 minutes to make? Well, that’s because you’ll buy a frozen cheesecake to make it. The creative part comes when you decorate the graveyard on top. (via Chelsea’s Messy Apron)
