Cooking and baking are staple activities in the fall. As the weather cools down and the days get shorter, our desire to get cozy (and maybe a little spooky) only increases. These fun, kid-friendly Halloween treats are a great way to get in the Halloween spirit in the days leading up to the big day! What’s more, there’s plenty of room for help from the small hands in the kitchen too.
