Tricks and Treats: Easy and Delicious Halloween Recipes For Kids

Whether you’re hosting a party or just making a meal for your family, Halloween is a great time to add some fun to your food. Treat the kids to desserts dressed up like pumpkins and witches’ hats, or trick them into eating their fruits and veggies with these ghoulishly good recipes!

Green Slime: Halloween is the one time of year you can trick your kids into trying foods they think are gross by making them sound even grosser! This spinach dip is a great example, especially if you keep the ingredients a mystery. 

Skeleton Bread:
This bread is the perfect accompaniment to the Green Slime!

Carrot Fingers:
This handsome snack (get it?) makes carrot sticks fun to eat. To make them, cut a flat, shallow notch in the end of each carrot and add an almond slice fingernail, securing it with a dab of cream cheese.  Serve with veggie dip.

Apple Fangs:
These apple bites are fang-tastic! Slice an apple into quarters, slice a wedge out of the skin side, and press slivered almonds in for the teeth. 

Healthy Ghost Sandwiches:
Ghostly egg salad sandwiches make a great party app or a festive school lunch.

Watermelon Brain:
Try your hand at brain surgery with this impressive edible centerpiece. To make it, remove the green rind from a watermelon, slice 1” off the bottom of the melon to make it flat, use a toothpick or skewer to mark brain-like squiggles, and use the squiggles as a guide to carve out narrow channels with a sharp paring knife. 

Banana Frozen Yogurt Ghosts:
Even kids who don’t like the slimy texture of fresh bananas will love these healthy popsicle-like treats! Slice a banana in half widthwise and cut small triangles out of the bottom to give it a ghost-like shape. Push a popsicle stick into the bottom and dip them into a mixture of 1 c vanilla yogurt and 1 tbsp melted coconut oil. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper, add chopped raisins for the eyes and mouth, and freeze.

Crispy Marshmallow: These scrumptious shaped cereal bars are sweet and spooky!

Devil's Food Spider Cupcakes: Creepy, crawly, and chocolate-y cupcakes topped with Oreo, jellybean, and pipe cleaner spiders.

Gravedigger's Cake:  Milano cookies serve as tombstones atop this eerie cake.
