Three Deliciously Spooky (and Healthy!) Halloween Treats
October 28, 2012Posted by pamela |
My kids and I love to make healthy Halloween treats for snacks and school lunches. Not only are all these healthy, but they’re fun to make and eat, too.
These recipes also make a great playgroup or play date activity or girl scout or cub scout project.
Mummy Mini Pizzas
- English muffins
- Prepared pizza or pasta sauce
- Sliced black olives
- Mozzarella string cheese sticks
Heat the oven to 350ºF. Peel shreds of cheese off the string cheese sticks and set aside. Bake English muffins for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
For each mummy pizza, spread about a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin. Place olive slices for eyes and lay strips of string cheese across the muffin for the mummy’s wrappings.
Put pizzas on a cookie sheet and back for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty around the edges.
Halloween Apple Bats
- Caramel sauce or peanut butter for dipping
- Lemon juice
Slice apples about ¼ inch thick. Cut out pieces with a bat-shaped (or other Halloween themed) cookie cutter. Rub apple slices with lemon juice so they don’t turn brown. Serve with caramel sauce or peanut butter for dipping.
Banana Ghost Pops
- 1 cup dried shredded coconut
- 12 chocolate chips
- 3 bananas
- Orange juice
- Popsicle sticks
Cut each banana in half and insert a popsicle stick into the cut flat end. Put bananas in the freezer for a few hours.
When you’re ready to make your ghosts, remove bananas from the freezer and dip in orange juice (you can drink it afterwards), then roll in the shredded coconut.
Place two chocolate chips for eyes and a raisin for the mouth.
