Every year, we host our annual Halloween Party, packed with our friends and family and tons of food. This year, we had to fore-go our party for the first time in six years as we are on the hunt for a new home and this one needs to always be available to show. Needless to say, there will be other parties to attend and I took it upon myself to do something fun and healthy to keep me on track when there are other food distractions calling my name! Yes, I am ‘that girl’ who brings the healthy food but being health conscious myself, I also appreciate ‘that girl’ who brings the veggie tray. Plus, what great snacks for the kids before they go trick or treating! Every party needs one! These are so simple and all fresh fruit, almond butter and slivered almonds can be found at your local Whole Foods Market! Read below how simple these little Treats are to create.
- Monster Teeth: these are my favorite of the treats as the slivered almonds add so much personality to them. Take 1/4 of a red apple and slice it so that it is sliced like you would a piece of pie. Remove it and do the same in the center (on outside) of the apple slice. This is where you will place your almond butter or peanut butter. After filling the center with almond butter, add slivered almonds along the row of almond butter to look like teeth. You can easily push the almond sliver into the peanut butter
- Banana Ghosts: super simple, purchase bamboo or wooden skewers and place 1/2 banana on stick. With black food coloring, add the ghost face
- Pumpkin Head: Take a cantaloupe and with a scooper tool, scoop out little balls. Take a marshmallow (Whole Foods Market has gluten free Marshmallows) and place first on skewer, then add the pumpkin head and paint on a face with black food coloring
- The skewer holder: is a cantaloupe that we used for the pumpkin heads, then trimmed it down with jagged edges
- Pumpkins in a field: Peel an orange or clementine, pit out a small hole in the top of the fruit and add a small slice of celery
- Frankenstein: Who doesn’t love Frankenstein! Take a kiwi, cut it until you create a rectangle, put on skewer stick, take black food color to create Frankenstein face and add two candy eyes (you can get these in the baking aisle near sprinkles)
