Tricks and Treats: 10 Easy and Delicious Halloween 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.
