Monsters don’t seem half as scary if you can bite their heads off—which makes this selection of Halloween treats the perfect feast for little ones this holiday season. Sweet or savory, these munchies prove that when it comes to monster-themed success, the eyes have it.

Jittery Jello

A slice of kiwi makes the perfect iris for a creepy jello monster eye. Just pour the jello mixture into cups and float a slice of kiwi on top. Wait 'til serving time to add the candy eyeballs to avoid any mush—unless that’s the look you’re after!  These jiggling jitterbugs are open to lots of variations—find instructions here.
