Traditional Halloween Handouts

Typically, children are told not to eat homemade handouts that they gather while trick or treating. This is wise advice as it is much easier to tamper with foods that are not in their original packages. However, the following recipes can be used for parties, and for special packages to be given to friends and relatives.

To make Halloween a fun, festive time for all concerned and to recall the fun of Halloweens of the past, we have brought together a few items that will have parents and grandparents wistfully recalling their youth and having the young ones creating new memories.

Candied Apples are easy to make and fun to eat. Their bright red color makes them attractive on the table and a bright addition to a snack tray.

Popcorn Balls made with real sorgum were once the staple of Halloween night. You can bring them back with this fun recipe.

Pumpkin Seeds make a great natural snack and the kids love them because they can help on every stage of production from growing to cleaning to spicing to eating.

Spider Cup Cakes are a perfect Halloween treat, but you might want the kids eating them outside, just to avoid the crumbs.
