Halloween Corn Chip Dessert Bars are super easy to make with only four ingredients. Fair warning, make two batches because these vanish quickly.

These No Bake Halloween Corn Chip Dessert Bars require only a few simple ingredients which are probably already in your pantry. You will only need one pot and one sheet pan so no big mess either. I’m guessing you don’t always keep Corn Chips so add those to the shopping list.

Your little’s will love these super duper easy to make Charlie Brown cookies while they are watching The Great Pumpkin. FYI, you will enjoy those cookies too.

When we think of Halloween, the first thing we think of is candy. I made these Halloween Candy Kabobs for a family Halloween party and they were a big hit. No cooking involved.

Do you love serving food in a jar with a spoon? It’s always fun to eat that way for a festive atmosphere. Make these delicious and fun to eat Halloween Brownie Parfaits. We added some orange candy sprinkles for fun.

Take a peep at our Peanuts Great Pumpkin Halloween Party we hosted for the little’s in our family. Raggedy Ann and Andy came. The food was fabulous and everyone had a great time.

Ingredients for making a dessert

You need to know that these are addictive so depending on how many people you plan to share these scrumptious dessert bars with, you may want to make two batches at one time. 


If you plan to layer these in the pan, make more of the topping. 

Layer the corn chips in a manner to allow the topping to seep through to touch each and every chip if possible.

It is fine if the chips are broken up because they will adhere to the topping regardless as long as they come in contact with it.

If you do not already own a large baking pan, get yourself one! You will love it when you are making cookies and desserts like these Corn Chip Bars!

They are also called Sheet Pans and are multi-functional for all sorts of purposes in the kitchen, not just making cookies. You can use them for Sheet Pan dinners, roasting meats, containing large quantities of meat coming off the outdoor grill and of course cookies and desserts just to name a few.

Get the one with the small rolled edge which will catch juices if you are baking meats. They are perfect for making bar cookies or desserts like this one.

Make sure it is dishwasher safe. I have a rule at my house, If it isn’t dishwasher safe, it can’t come in the kitchen! One word of caution though. You may want to always remove metal objects from the dishwasher once the cycle is complete and dry them naturally or wipe dry to prevent rust.

Wilton has the cutest Halloween theme cupcake liners! See them here on Amazon. I paired these with some black and white polka dot liners to make individual servings of this cute Halloween dessert treat.

My candy sprinkle toppings are from Sweets & Treats. The edible eyes and Gummy Bats are from Wilton. You can find a nice selection at your grocery store and even Walmart or shop here on Amazon for them.

The topping is sort of like caramel and if you are a lover of all things sweet and salty, you will hit the jackpot with these dessert bars! Make these for any occasion or season because they are quick and easy plus no bake! 

You can find edible candy sprinkles for any season for decoration or leave them plain. Because they are so easy, we will see these during football game day this year.

  1. My favorite Halloween dessert is Halloween Monster Sugar Cookies! So easy to make, fun, and always delicious! You can never really go wrong with cookies.

  2. I was a big fan of the Nightmare On Elm Street movies as a kid, and even went as Freddy for a few Halloweens. I watched one of the movies a few years ago and they are not really that good!! I think most things from our childhood are better in memory than they actually were!!

We enjoying hearing from you!
