7 Fall Treats for Kids {And Their Parents}

I’ve been collecting and drooling over some easy fall treats and goodies for kids over on my “Falling for Fall” Board on Pinterest, that I just HAD to share!  I love how baking and fall go hand in hand.  Add some kids helping out {and licking the bowl} and it’s the perfect equation! 

Here’s a Handful of My Favorite Fall Treats Finds:

1. “Whooooo” wouldn’t love these Owl Cupcakes from One Charming Party? They used chocolate cupcakes, frosting, Oreos, and Reese’s Pieces to make these cute creations.

2. S’more Popcorn from Thirty Handmade Days will leave you wanting s’more!  And s’more!  And s’more! Carmel corn, marshmallow, Golden Grahams, and chocolate – please pass the bowl!

3. Even if you don’t go crazy over real candy corn, you’ll love these Candy Corn Sugar Cookies from Kathie Cooks. The dough layers make these impressively easy!

4. I love the combination of chocolate and pumpkin!  Don’t these Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies from Pennies on a Platter look sooooo good?

5. I never knew making Homemade Apple Chips was so easy until I came across this recipe on Fifteen Spatulas. I know the kids would love making these together!

6. This Festive Fall Trail Mix is always a winner in our house.  No baking required, just munching!

7. Need something to wash that all down with? How about an Apple Cider Floats from That’s So Michelle? We’ve already checked drinking apple cider off our Fall Bucket List, but we might have to add these instead!

Tell me!  What’s YOUR favorite Fall Treat?

    I will definitely be making that s’mores popcorn sometime. And how cute are those owl cupcakes??? Such a simple idea, yet I could have never come up with it on my own. LOVE it! Thanks for sharing. :)

    All of these look like they would be fun to make, especially with some “little” helpers!

    Wish I had a good one to share with you, but can’t think of one at the moment.

    That S’more popcorn looks AMAZING. Just “stumbling” through and it caught my eye. Great compilation of treats!

    Thank you for fall treats that do not include a Halloween theme. Our church has an after school tutoring program. The owl cupcake will be perfect. Great idea.
