Yes, the excessive amount of sugar that kids will consume in the next week is inevitable. But here are a few cute Halloween treats for kids that won’t make them scream.
Ghost Strawberries: Fruit wrapped in chocolate = the easiest way to get kids to eat their fruit. Dip strawberries in melted white chocolate and use mini chocolate chips to make a ghostly face. Tip: Dry the berries very well before dipping in chocolate and don’t worry about a pool of excess melted chocolate – it makes for extra cute ghosts. (Via Candiquik)
Clementine “Pumpkins”: Peel clementines and add a piece of celery to make a stem.
Apple Smiles: Use apple slices, mini marshmallows & peanut or soy butter to hold everything together. (Via Disney Family)
Boo-Nanas: It doesn’t get much easier than chocolate chips and a banana to make a scary snack.
Cheese & Pretzel Broomsticks: Make these cute witchy snacks with pretzel rods, string cheese and chives. Tying the chives is the only annoying party – otherwise an easy peasy project. (Via Navy Wive Cooks)
Healthy “Candy Corn” Fruit Cups: Layer pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and whipped cream in a clear glass. Top with a few actual candy corn and your kids will feel like they had an actual treat. (Via Family Fresh Meals)
