Healthy Halloween Treats

Posted: Updated:

Pumpkintines

  • Clementines
  • A black Sharpie marker

Turn your little monsters loose on unpeeled Clementines and a Sharpie to make pumpkin faces or funny monster faces. 

Boonanas

  • Bananas
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Regular chocolate chips
  1. While the kids are having fun with the Clementines, peel the bananas and cut them in half, crosswise.
  2. Set the bananas on a plate cut-side down, and let the kids use the mini chocolate chips for eyes and a large chocolate chip for the mouth  to make a yummy and scary ghost.

Spiders on a Log

  • Celery sticks
  • All natural peanut butter or seed or nut butter of your choice
  • Plastic spiders
  1. Fill the celery sticks with peanut butter and turn the kids loose on decorating them with the spiders.
  2. Just remember to remove the spiders when you are ready to eat the logs!

Pumpkin Dippers

  • 2 large carrots
  • Flat leaf parsley or cilantro 
  • Chives or small scallions
  • Hummus
  • Toothpicks
  1. Cut carrots into coin shapes and spear on the side in the center with a toothpick.
  2. Add a parsley leaf or cilantro leaf to the top of the carrot (through the toothpick), and then cut a small piece of a chive and thread it onto the toothpick to use as the pumpkin stem.
  3. Spread homemade or store-bought hummus on a dish or platter to create the field, and arrange pumpkins on top for easy dipping.


Scary Eyeballs

  • Red grapes
  • Small blueberries
  • A pot of boiling water
  • A bowl of water 
  • Ice cube 
  • A mesh strainer
  1. Bring a wide pot of water to a boil and fill a wide mixing bowl with ice. Top the ice with water.
  2. Place the grapes in a mesh strainer and dunk them in the boiling water for 4 seconds.
  3. Chill the grapes in the ice water for about 10 seconds and drain. The skin will slide off easily. Cut a small indention in the grape and push in a blueberry. Fill a dish with eyeballs or add them to your party drinks!
  4. Enjoy!
