Scary Fun Healthy Halloween Snack ideas!

Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas!

With less than two weeks to go before Octo­ber 31st, it’s offi­cially time to start plan­ning those Hal­loween par­ties. And I cer­tainly don’t need to tell you that the last thing our lit­tle ghosts and gob­lins need is more oooey-gooey sug­ary desserts. I’m excited about this list of fun and healthy Hal­loween treats, and I hope you will be, too! (For those of you who can only bring store-bought food to school func­tions, you could do the Clemen­tine Jack ‘o Lanterns, Mummy Pop­corn Cups, Pump­kin Pie Par­faits and Bat Cheese and Full Moon Crackers–provided you’re allowed to assem­ble the food at school prior to the party.)

Dark choco­late apples.


 I made these at home on a whim a few weeks ago, and my husband and friends thought they were a great treat. They were really easy to make, too! Look for the any apples that you can find. Twist the stems off the apples and stick a pop­si­cle stick in the core of each one. Melt dark choco­late in the microwave or a dou­ble boiler. Dip the apples in the choco­late, then place on a parch­ment paper-lined bak­ing sheet. Place in the refrig­er­a­tor or freezer briefly until the choco­late sets. As you can see, mine have that imper­fect home­made look, but I’m pretty sure the no one cared.

Clemen­tine Jack ‘o Lanterns


This if a fun one for the kids if carving a pumpkin is to much work for your little ones! Use a black per­ma­nent marker ( or waterproof markers) to draw a Jack ‘o Lantern face on clemen­tines or small tan­ger­ines or navel oranges. Alter­na­tively, you could cut out the shapes on a black adhe­sive craft paper and and stick them on the orange. Either way, you should be sure to wash the orange thor­oughly first to remove any oils and residues from the peel. This is always a great activity!
