Your little munchkins—and all their friends—will love snacking on this quick and easy treat. It dresses up popcorn, cereal, and Glutino® pretzel twists in a chocolatey, marshmallow-y, and peanut buttery coating. Have a bowl of it ready for your Halloween party, or divvy it up into individual bags for a convenient grab-and-go snack. However you serve it, its gluten-free yumminess is sure to please the pickiest of monsters.
Move over, Starbucks®. This Pumpkin Spice Pudding is so good, you'll wonder why you ever had the flavor in any other form. It combines vanilla pudding with cream cheese, pumpkin, and spices, and it’s sure to be a hit among adults and kids alike. Top it with Reddi-wip® original dairy whipped topping, or you can even use Reddi-wip non-dairy almond whipped topping for a nutty and non-dairy alternative.
This fan-favorite uses Udi's® chocolate chip cookies for a haunted dessert that’s both simple and striking in all its mummified glory. They’re a great choice for whenever you’re short on time, and the soft and chewy cookies are free not only of gluten, but of soy and nuts as well. Send a plate of them to school or serve them at your neighborhood get-together and watch the cute little horrors disappear.
Nothing says fall like the tart freshness of a Granny Smith apple combined with the sweet decadence of caramel. This twist on the classic adds peanut butter for an extra creamy coating and crushed pretzel pieces for that extra salty crunch. Kids will love getting to dip and roll their own apples, and when you swap out traditional pretzels for Glutino pretzel sticks, you’ll have a big patch of deliciously simple gluten-free Halloween treats.
Not only are these the purr-fect Halloween treat, but when you use Glutino chocolate vanilla creme cookies in place of traditional sandwich cookies, they’re also deliciously gluten-free. Decorate them yourself for an Insta-worthy display, or let kids frost their own cookies for some undoubtedly creative kittens. With peanut butter adding texture to the butterscotch pudding, these treats taste every bit as good as they look. Who says black cats are unlucky?
There’s more where that came from—Snack Pack® pudding can be used for a whole variety of Halloween treats, ranging from adorable to spooky. And you won’t have to worry about serving dishes! Vanilla lovers will find that these Scary Spider Pudding Cups are one spider they won’t want to squash. Chocoholics will love these Boo-nana Chocolate Pudding Cups, and for those who like both flavors, you can whip up a batch of these Full Moon Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups. Just be sure to use gluten-free cookies, like Glutino, to keep the gluten-free goodness going!
