You had big Halloween plans, right? And then…time slipped away. I’ve been there. Start by forgiving yourself: it’s just Halloween after all, and to a kid, everything looks delicious. Throw together a one of these super cute, last-minute treats with what you have on hand or can easily grab at the store.

No trick here: these 5 festive, tasty treats from top bloggers are perfect and perfectly easy whether you’re bringing them to a friend’s house or serving them up at a classroom party.


Tell me this Halloween donut (at top) from Lovezilla doesn’t make you smile. My little one is obsessed with fangs (don’t ask), so we have more than one pair (and color!) in my house. If you’re not so, uh, lucky, stop by a Halloween costume store–and a donut shop–on your way home. Then Halloween breakfast is done. Oh, and if donuts aren’t your thing, this works great with bagels, too.
