Cute, Tasty (And Healthy!) Halloween Treats for Kids

Halloween treats don't have to be loaded with sugar. These ideas from HelloFresh are some of the cutest, healthier Halloween treats for kids.

Apple Monsters

Granny Smiths are best when cooked, tossed into salads, and blended into juices. Well, turns out there is another very important use of this tart and slightly sour fruit: carved into monsters!

Quarter each apple, then cut the middles out to create a mouth. Slather the inside with a smear of creamy peanut butter, stick sunflower seed teeth into the mouth, add a sliced strawberry tongue, and stick 1-2 sugar eyes onto the “head” with a dollop of peanut butter.

Boonana Ghosts

These bananas are pale as a ghost thanks to a thick coating of white chocolate.

Cut the fruit in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters. Insert a popsicle stick into the banana’s wider end, place on parchment paper, and freeze 24 hours. Add 100g white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until it’s smooth. Dip the frozen bananas into the chocolate and place back on the parchment paper. Add dark chocolate chips as eyes while the white chocolate is still warm. Place back in the freezer for 2 hours.

Jack O'Apples

Once you’ve carved your fair share of pumpkins and gotten the stringy bright orange flesh all over, take a stab at apples… literally. Use a knife to carve out eyes, a nose, and creepy smile. Then, take a bite with the spooky face staring back…we dare you.

Creepy Crawly Toasts

Ewwwwww spiders. But also, YUM. These creepy toasts are made by slathering a layer of either goat cheese or cream cheese on thick slices of toasted French baguette. Then, one half a black olive is placed in the center as the body while 4 smaller slices are placed on either side as legs. Sprinkle with finely chopped basil, and you’re done!
