20+ Scary Good Gluten-Free Halloween Treats and Desserts

1. Gluten-Free Halloween Sugar Cookies

These super soft gluten-free cookies can be anything you want them to be. You’re only limited by your imagination (and your cookie-cutter collection). 

It doesn’t matter if you make pumpkins, ghosts, or black cats. Either way, the cookies will be gluten-free and melt in your mouth amazing. 

They taste like regular sugar cookies and take less than 30 minutes to make. You can leave them plain or add frosting for an even more decadent treat.

2. Chocolate Pretzel Spiderwebs Halloween Treats

Pick up some gluten-free pretzels to make these cute (I mean creepy!) spiderweb treats. They’re a sweet and salty snack with plenty of crunch. 

Best of all, they’re ferociously festive. You can whip them up with five ingredients in practically no time at all. 

They’ll need several hours to sit and harden, though, so plan for that in advance.

3. White Chocolate SunButter Pumpkins

I’m not sure if you’ve had to send snacks to school lately, but it’s arduous work

Timmy has a nut allergy. Jane can’t have gluten. Sam is allergic to soy. And your kid can’t have red dye 40.

So what in the world do you make?! 

How about these top-8 allergen-free SunButter pumpkins? 

They’re rich, yummy, and taste almost just like Reese’s peanut butter cups. They just don’t have any of those things people can’t have.

You’ll be the Halloween classroom hero. 

4. Frankenstein Krispies

These funky Frankenstein Krispies are another excellent allergen-free option. They’re nut-, soy-, egg-, dairy-, and gluten-free.

Oh, and with a few tweaks, they can be vegan-friendly, too. 

Their colorful, festive appearance makes them a hit at parties. And although they’re allergen-free, they taste and feel just like Rice Krispies treats. 

They’re gooey, crunchy, sweet, and delicious. What more could you want?

5. Mummy Rice Krispie Treats

Prefer mummies to Frankenstein’s monster? Check out this recipe instead.

It’ll still give you crunchy, gooey Rice Krispies treats, just like the recipe above. The decorating is just a little different.

6. Chocolate Halloween Bark

Chocolate and almond bark is one of the easiest gluten-free Halloween treats you can make.

You’ll need four ingredients: chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, candy corn, and gluten-free pretzels.

Melt the chocolate, break the pretzels, then toss everything together and stick it in the fridge to harden.

The whole process shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes, with another hour to chill. Enjoy! 

7. Dairy Free Caramel Apples

Caramel apples are a fall favorite, and these are some of the best. They’re gluten- and dairy-free and take just 15 minutes to whip up. 

Delightfully crunchy and oh-so-sweet, each one tastes almost exactly like the caramel apples you used to get from the fair.

The coloring is just a bit different. 

Even so, these are awesome if you need a dairy- and gluten-free caramel apple option.

8. Moist Gluten Free Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Are you a bit of a chocoholic? If so, these muffins are the Halloween treat for you.

They’re decadent, moist, and downright fudgy, with plenty of chocolatey yumminess.

There’s just a hint of maple syrup and warm pumpkin spice, leaving you with a fluffy, impossible-to-resist gluten-free muffin that tastes heavenly. 

No one will even realize they’re gluten-free and vegan!

9. Spider Cupcakes for Halloween

Can you have too many recipes for chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing? I don’t think so!

And bonus: these are gluten-free, super chocolatey, gently spiced, and wonderfully festive.

Just be sure to get gluten-free Oreos for the spider.

The recipe even includes a way to make them grain-free, as well. So no matter what dietary restrictions you’re facing, these should be ideal.

10. Halloween Chex Mix

It’s hard to beat a sweet, savory, and salty Chex Mix. This particular recipe is gluten-free and perfect for Halloween. 

It features crunchy bits and chewy bits. And the sweet, brown sugar-cinnamon mixture covering it all? Divine

The only time I don’t recommend making this is if you’re dieting. You certainly won’t be able to stop at just one handful.

Heck, you may not even be able to stop at two or three!

11. Halloween Blondies – Spooky Candy Cookie Bars

You can make these Halloween blondies gluten-free with just one quick tweak: swap out the all-purpose flour for gluten-free flour

How easy is that?

You’ll get the same soft, sweet, and chewy blondies you know and love. And they’ll taste just as good as the regular recipe – and look just as spooky.

You won’t find any tummy-irritating gluten in the mix, though.

12. No-Bake Spider Cookies

These spidery sweets combine Rice Krispies treats and Reese’s peanut butter cups.

And believe it or not, that’s a match made in heaven…or hell, in this case.

You can whip up these simple no-bake cookies in an hour or less. They look fantastic and taste even better.

As long as you can make Rice Krispies treats, you can make these. 

13. Chocolate Mice with Almond Flour

I’ve seen dozens of chocolate mice recipes over the years. But as far as gluten-free ones go, these are my favorite. 

They have cute, fat, supremely chocolaty bodies with rich, nutty undertones.

Meanwhile, the pretzel tails, pumpkin seed ears, and sesame seed noses add to their adorableness. 

The fact that they’re vegan and no-bake is just the cherry on top.

14. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Madeleines

Do you prefer pumpkin spice to nutty chocolate? If so, this recipe may be the better option.

It yields similarly enchanting mice treats, but the taste is far more fall-friendly.

And hey, you can always dip them in chocolate if you want the extra decadence.

15. Boonanas – A Frozen Banana Ghost Halloween Treat

Want an easy Halloween treat the kiddos can make with you? Try Boonanas!

You can make them with three simple ingredients, and there’s no cooking required. 

Just dip frozen bananas in yogurt and add chocolate eyes and mouths. 

Make these for your next Halloween party, and the little ghouls will go nuts!

16. Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

These muffins aren’t as pretty as others on the list. (At least, they never are when I make them, anyway.)

But they’re keto-friendly, gluten-free, and delicious. 

They’re also moist, soft, and full of tangy pumpkin goodness. They don’t have a ton of calories, either.

And with only two net carbs per serving, they’re hard to refuse. 

17. Gluten-free Pumpkin Cake Topped with Salted Caramel Frosting

Pumpkin cake is a must-have fall dessert in my house. And lately, I’ve been adding sweet-n-salty caramel frosting.

It really knocks this cake out of the park. 

This sweet, spiced dessert is addictive and not too hard to make. It’s also ideal for both formal and informal occasions.

It’s a gorgeous addition to any dessert table, including the holidays!

18. Halloween Popcorn

Are you the kind of person who pours M&Ms and other candy into your popcorn? If so, Halloween popcorn is so your jam. 

It’s just colorful popcorn with your favorite candy mixed in.

It may look a little spooky, but it tastes like sweet-studded popcorn. In other words: it’s scrumdiddlyumptious!

19. Monster Halloween Marshmallow Pops {Gluten-Free}

These festive pops are one of the easiest and safest treats you can make for Halloween.

Why? Because EVERYONE loves marshmallows!!

They’re jazzed-up with chocolate and colorful candy melts. And you can make a dozen in 15 minutes or so.

Get the kids in on the fun; it’ll take even less time. 

20. Gluten-Free Matcha Cheesecake Frankensteins

Nope. That’s not pistachio or green food coloring you’re seeing. That’s a matcha-infused cheesecake with a crumbly chocolate crust. 

It has a mild, sweet, tangy flavor and looks just like Frankenstein’s monster! 

It doesn’t matter if your guests are 7, 17, or 77 – they’ll love these funky Frankensteins.

21. Soot Sprite Halloween Cookies

Who would have thought eating soot would be so much fun?

Well, it’s not real soot, of course, but it looks like it!

These sparkly black cookies are chewy and lightly sweet. 

They’re not just gluten-free, either. They’re also low-carb and keto-friendly, and paleo-compliant. Enjoy! 

22. Halloween Ghost Meringues

I love making meringues – especially ones that look like little ghosts. And while they look tricky, they’re all treat!

Seriously, they couldn’t be more straightforward to recreate.

You can pull these together with only five ingredients. Better yet, one mixer makes a bunch!

Serve them as is, or use them as a fun Halloween cupcake decoration.

23. Halloween Cupcakes: Blood Cupcakes with Broken Beer Bottle Glass Shards

These colorful cupcakes look absolutely murderous!

One look at the “blood” and “broken glass,” and you can’t help but think something deadly occurred.

Fortunately, the “blood” mixture is just cornstarch and food coloring, and the “broken glass” is just as edible.

It’s a sweet, crystal-like candy made from corn syrup, sugar, and cream of tartar.

Use these two things to Halloween-up any store-bought cupcakes. Or make your favorite homemade cupcakes instead.

Either way, these are sure to be a hit.
