Great Halloween Recipes for Dads and Kids


Halloween is a favorite holiday for many dads. It is a little spooky and a time for lots of fun. Here are some easy and delicious recipes that you can make with your kids to add a little variety to your Halloween celebrations.

1. Flap Jack o Lanterns

A fun recipes for pancakes with pumpkin and spices and with raisins or chocolate chips for a jack-o-lantern face.

2. Swamp Punch

A great punch perfect for a family, neighborhood or friends Halloween party. Made with oranges, lime, orange gelatin and other tasty ingredients, this one is sure to please the kids and parents as well.

3. Indian Fry Bread

A favorite treat of many families in the cool fall air. This is deep fried and served with powdered sugar or honey.

4. Oven Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

If you have never toasted the pumpkin seeds that come out of the jack-o-lantern you carve with your kids, you are really missing a treat! In fact, at our house, I am the pumpkin seed chef. So I was excited to see About Home Cooking Guide Peggy Trowbridge's recipe for toasted pumpkin seeds.

5. Frozen Orange Jack-o-Lanterns

We just did these for the first time a couple of years ago. Think oranges, chocolate ice cream and cinnamon sticks. From About.com's Guide to Southern Food.
