Did you know candied apples and popcorn balls are the most often Halloween recipes fixed? These, among other traditional treats, are easy enough for kids - some as easy as adding gummy worms to store bought cupcakes iced in purple or green.
Here are brief instructions for a couple of Halloween recipes for kids: You can melt 2 cups of water with 5 cups of sugar and 3/4 cup of corn syrup over medium high heat until it reaches 290 degrees on a thermometer for your candied apple coating, or you can buy a couple of bags of caramel squares and have the kids melt them along with 4 tablespoons of milk in a double boiler.
This second method is very kid friendly; and so is sprinkling the finished apple with chopped nuts. Or, for interesting apples, tint the melted caramels with a few drops of orange coloring. Once the apples have been dipped and dried on parchment paper, they can be drizzled with very dark chocolate for an interesting effect.
Here is another of the many Halloween recipes for kids - cupcakes can also be decorated with gummy worms over the top of brightly colored icing. They can be given to the kids with instructions to be creative, and used on anything including in and around the punch bowl.
Cupcakes can be made from any boxed cake mix often with just the addition of an egg and some oil. They can be elaborately decorated, or simply sprinkled with powdered sugar and given chocolate chips for eyes and blobs of red jam for blood smeared mouths.
Other cupcake ideas would be to have kids whip up a box cake mix - any flavor, and fill cups half way and then add a dollop of green tinted vanilla pudding filling before topping with more batter. A drop of cherry pie filling can be added for a 'blood and guts' effect. Bake as directed on the box and decorate.
Rice crispy treats is another of the easy Halloween recipes for kids to make. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter with a bag of marshmallows over low heat, stirring often. When melted, add to cereal and mix well. Spread in buttered pan and allowed to set up.
Ghost, pumpkin and cat cookie cutters can be used to create Halloween versions of these treats. They can be iced - white for the ghosts, black for the cats and orange for the pumpkins, but don't have to be. Chocolate chips can be used for eyes and icing gel can be used to create jack-o-lanterns.

For something a bit more stable, have the kids cut hot dogs in half. While they are doing that, take several pastry sheets and cut them into thin strips. Have kids wrap the dogs with strips to create a mummy effect.
At one end, leave a small slit big enough for a couple of whole clove 'eyes'. Beat an egg and allow them to wash the mummies with the egg (it'll create a nice shiny effect). Bake at 350 degrees for about twelve minutes. They should be golden when they come out of the oven and warm when eaten.
