I never really cared for Halloween. If I’m being honest, I couldn’t even watch Jurassic Park without getting scared. Halloween stores give me the heebee jeebees.

Then I had 2 boys. This is my life now.

Creepy Halloween Dessert Table Ideas

To make this Halloween Dessert Table Skeleton, you could really go to Target or your local grocery store and find everything you need.

Customize it to include the candies your family loves. I made mine with sweets that are okay for my little guy’s peanut allergy (always check labels and/or with your doctor).

Of course add homemade treats like these Butterscotch Leaf Piles Haystack Cookies, or this Monster Mash Candy Bark.

Switch to Savory Snacks

Switch things up and make this with celery sticks and carrot sticks, cucumber discs, and cauliflower heads.

Place a jar of roasted red pepper hummus inside the skeleton for dipping.

Try popcorn, pretzel sticks, and deviled eggs sprinkled with smoky red paprika.

Add salami slices and pepperoni chunks with mozzarella balls.

I have a whole SPOOKY SWEETS Pinterest Board with some of my favorite Halloween festive ideas.

For adults you can serve up Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria or leave out the alcohol and make a kid-friendly version. The apple spirals make it creepy and fun!
