Halloween food doesn’t need to be scary. You can do healthy with a little imagination. Treat your friends and family to some easy Halloween fun without the sugar coma and trust me, no one will miss the candy.
Here are a few of my favorite go-to Halloween treats that are just as fun to look at as they are to eat!
1. Witches Teeth
Made from organic apples and almond slivers.
How: Cut the apple in quarters and cut out an opening on the skin side in each quarter. Push almond slivers ‘teeth’ into the opening. The more crooked the teeth the scarier the witches mouth.
2. Goblin’s Claw
Organic skim string cheese, green beans and low fat organic cream cheese for the ‘glue.’
How: Cut green beans in 1″ sections. Cut string cheese in half. Use cream cheese as glue to attach the green bean ‘finger nail’. Use a knife to make 1-2 short lines across the string cheese where the Goblins knuckles would be.
3. Wriggling Eyeballs
Organic, cage free hard boiled eggs, Kalamata olives and low fat organic cream cheese for the ‘glue.’
How: Hard boil eggs and let cool. Peel eggs and cut in half length wise. Cut Kalamata olives in half so that the hole ‘eyeball’ is on both pieces. Use cream cheese to glue olives in the middle of the yolk.
4. Deadman’s Fingers
Organic carrots with the skin on, roasted pumpkin seeds in the shell, low fat organic cream cheese.
How: Break carrots in half. Use cream cheese to glue pumpkin seed ‘finger nails’ to the narrow top of the carrot ‘finger’.
5. Witch’s Broomstick
8 String Cheese Sticks, 24 Pretzel Sticks, Fresh Chives
How: Cut each string cheese stick in thirds (about 1½” each). Make lengthwise cuts around the cheese stick to about half way up. In the uncut end of the cheese, insert a pretzel stick. Bind with a piece of chive. Cut off extra chive.
Lets show our kids that Halloween isn’t just about candy and sweets, but having fun and getting into the spirit of the holiday. By using our imagination we can create a memorable, tasty and healthy holiday without the sugar hangover.
Of course my saying is “a lot of good and a little bit of bad!” This way the mini Snickers bar I swipe from the candy bag really is a treat! XO ~ L
