The autumn colors, the fall weather and the costumes may look like any other year, but Halloween gatherings may need to be held differently this year. The main event—trick-or-treating—may not be a community-wide activity. Halloween parties will be much smaller if they happen at all. 

Will this be a Zoom Halloween? Is this the year of virtual Halloween parties where you just trick-or-treat at Gopuff and order the greatest candy haul of all time to be delivered wherever you are? Come to think of it, that does sound kind of amazing…

However you decide to enjoy your favorite tricks and treats—as a small party with close friends or family or a socially distanced scary movie marathon with great snacks and all the best candy—you can still celebrate, despite Halloween trick-or-treat cancellations. Regardless, no Halloween party is complete without tons of goodies and fun Halloween treats! But what food should you take to a Halloween party and what are some easy-to-make Halloween treats?

Let’s take a look at some easy Halloween treat ideas that are sure to treat eyes and taste buds alike.
