After looking at literally dozens of articles on Halloween cookies and treats of all kinds, this Grandma has curated those fast and easy Halloween cookies and special treats, Halloween treats for babies, those that use leftover candy, even healthy and nut free options, to make for or with grandchildren, and especially, Halloween treats for the grandparent to make who just likes to make reservations.

Fast and Easy from Kitchn

I wanted to pick one of the five choices from “5 Easy Last-Minute Halloween Treats,” by Kelli Foster on Kitchn, but all five are fast and easy Halloween treats.

Pick from Halloween candy brownies starting with your favorite mix, Halloween Sprinkle Marshmallows that even the youngest grandchildren can help with, Smoky Candied Popcorn,  Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats, and Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies.  While you are on the Kitchn website, take a look at their other recipes–they are a good resource.
