Halloween Treats {Spooky Shakes and Sundaes}

Sometimes I get frustrated when I find gluten-free recipes. Many are so “unique” that I know right away that they won’t fit my family. Today, I want to show you that gluten free does not have to mean fancy ingredients you have never heard of! Here’s a Halloween party treat idea that is easily gluten-free: SPOOKY SHAKES OR ICE CREAM SUNDAES. (Okay–maybe if you live in super cold winter state, ice cream and shakes are weird at this time of the year! I live in the desert, so ice cream is still perfectly normal here.)

If you don’t eat gluten-free, please keep reading. These treats are fun for any diet (except the weight-loss kind–sorry!).

These Halloween treats are so easy!  Here you go:

  • Pick your ingredients/toppings
  • Make some creepy labels
  • For shakes–take orders (of course the guests have to call their mix-ins by the appropriate creepy name!)
  • For sundaes–scoop the ice cream and let your guests add their own creepiness.

Easy, fun spooky treats!

Now for some mix-in ideas:

Here are a few more:

  • Chopped Peanuts–Phoenix Giblets
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup–Werewolf Blood
  • Hershey’s Strawberry Syrup–Vampire Guts
  • Hershey’s Caramel Syrup–Mashed Brain  (As far as I can tell, Hershey’s Syrups are gluten free, but if in doubt, please double check.)
  • Oreo Cookies (Use Glutinto Gluten-Free Oreos for GF )–Zombie Vertebrae
  • Candy Corn–Witches Teeth


You get the idea.  The possibilities for these Halloween treats are endless.  They’d be great for a Harry Potter Party, too!

Have fun!
