If Halloween snuck up on you (boo!), don't get tricked out of a Halloween treat. You don't need to invest in hokey smoke machines or tangled cobwebs to get in the Halloween spirit — we've got easy ideas for last-minute Halloween treats that are scary-good, and perfect for a spooky meal or take-to-school snack. A last-minute costume, on the other hand, is a bigger challenge, and one that we'll leave to you.

All you need to make Sandra Lee's Spider Bites is three ingredients: semisweet chocolate chips, pretzel sticks and creamy peanut butter.

Party ready in just 25 minutes, The Pioneer Woman's sticky, crunchy  Candy Corn Popcorn Balls from Food Network Magazine are assembled and studded with peanuts and candy corn in a flash.

Though roasting  Pumpkin Seeds like the ones in this recipe from Food Network Magazine isn't necessarily quick, it's definitely easy. Bake leftover pumpkin seeds from any pumpkin carving you've done over the weekend, then toss them with different spice mixes.
