Cinnamon Roll Pumpkins
Your imagination—with the help of store-bought cinnamon rolls and food coloring—can go a very long way. Pinch the ends of each roll and your breakfast will magically resemble your favorite fall gourd.
Halloween Yogurt Bark
This spooky vegan treat starts with a non-dairy yogurt base that’s topped with fresh fruit and homemade monster googly eyes. Your breakfast is waaaaatching you.
Crescent Roll Mummy Hot Dogs
Similar to pigs in a blanket, a tube of crescent rolls becomes bandages and mozzarella and olives form eyes to make the mummies come alive.
Icky Intestines Bread
Puff pastry, stuffed with raspberry sauce and cream cheese, is rolled and swirled into the shape of intestines to spook your guests. Mission accomplished? We think so.
Frankenstein Smoothie Bowl
Spinach, mango, and banana are blended together to make a mean, green smoothie that’s topped with blueberries to look like Frankenstein’s hair.
Coffin-Shaped Halloween Pop Tarts
Homemade Pop-Tarts are made easily with refrigerated pie crust, jam, and vanilla frosting. The only thing that’s not readily accessible at your grocery store is a coffin cookie cutter, but that’s why God invented Amazon.
Halloween Monster Doughnuts
Roll up to your favorite doughnut shop in the wee hours of the morning, buy a dozen of your favorite flavor and decorate them with fangs and M&M’s. RAWR!
Jack O' Lantern Waffles
These smiling pumpkins only require three ingredients: store bought waffle mix, orange food coloring, and mini chocolate chips.
Candy Corn Doughnuts
There’s actually no candy corn here, but you can sprinkle candy corn onto your doughnuts. We won’t judge.
Rice Krispy Treat Brains
Rice Krispies and melted marshmallows are shaped into brains and coated with red gel icing to create veins. Serve them on a metal tray to make this snack look even more terrifyingly real.
DIY Boo Nana Pops
Who says you can’t eat chocolate for breakfast? Slide banana halves onto popsicle sticks, dip them in white chocolate, and freeze those bad boys for breakfast.
No, those are not real spiders (but they could be if you want them to be). Powdered doughnut holes and plastic spiders combine for a sweet meal that’s creepy and crawly.
Green Monster Hash
Your favorite diner sides are all here: potato hash, scrambled eggs, and bacon. It’s just green for special effects.
Monster Hot Cocoa
Candy melts turn hot chocolate green for Halloween. Pour the cocoa into beakers and top with bone sprinkles to please all mad scientists.
Slime Monster Halloween Doughnuts
Here are your average baked doughnuts with one small addition: food coloring. Pieces of candy corn and gummy eyeballs complete the face of these cute monsters.
Creepy Crawly Spider Sandwich
Chocolate chip eyes and pretzel legs almost classify this peanut butter sandwich as dessert.
White Chocolate Monster Munch Chex Mix
Honey Nut Cheerios and Corn Chex are mixed into this monster munch recipe, so it’s obviously breakfast. Pretzels, M&M’s, candy corn, and chocolate chips are just sweet add-ons.
Baked Eyeball Eggs
This breakfast casserole is topped with runny eggs and Sriracha “veins” for a scary bake. You can use ketchup to resemble blood, too, if you’re not a fan of spice.
Silly Apple Bites
These green apple monsters look just like Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc. Their sunflower seed teeth and strawberry tongues make them slightly cuter.
Candy Corn Fruit Parfait
Orange and yellow fruit, like mandarin and pineapple, combined with whipped cream mimic the colors of candy corn for a healthy breakfast.
