15 Kid-Friendly Halloween Treats!


With Halloween just around the corner I’m always stumped at what to make for my kids’ school parties/celebrations.  I also have to admit that I am not a fan of Halloween (yes, I said it!).  Don’t get me wrong, I like all the treats, baking, and candy my kids get trick-or-treating, but I don’t like the decorating or dressing-up part.  If I get invited to a Halloween Party I can quickly come up with a excuse  reason why I can’t attend.  I know it’s fun for the kids and I actually get excited for them, but let’s just leave it to the kids!

Here are some creative, fun ideas to get your Halloween baking off to a good start.  I know this weekend I will be doing some baking and costume planning for my 3 kiddies!  Enjoy :)

Guess what?  I have TWO giveaways for you today! The Easter Bunny is coming this weekend and we’ll be waking up to these Homemade Hot Cross Buns, with Gay Lea butter of course, for breakfast.  Most of my family are not fans of the dried fruit peel that’s normally in Hot Cross Buns so the […]

Homemade Coconut Larabars | A Sweet Baker

Homemade Coconut Larabars

Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy and I’m trying to avoid any processed food. It’s actually not that hard but when it comes to having a little sweet treat there’s always added sugar and things I can’t pronounce. When I first tasted Larabars I loved them but at $1.69 each I knew I had […]

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake | A Sweet Baker

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake

A few years ago my husband made a tri-color quinoa dish that was so tasty.  One layer was red (from sundried tomatoes), another layer was green (from pesto), and the final layer was light brown (from plain quinoa).  It was a time consuming dish to layer all the ingredients but the final dish was so […]

Doodle Your Pillsbury Toaster Strudel | A Sweet Baker

Doodle your Pillsbury Toaster Strudel and Win! #Strudelgram

Just hearing the word ‘morning’ makes me cringe. I am not a morning person and I hate getting up to an alarm.  Making everyone breakfast during the week is the last thing on my mind when I wake up.  I just want to be left alone to get ready for work and get the kids […]
