4 Fun And Healthy Halloween Snacks That You Will Love

Couldn’t figure out what kind of Halloween snacks to make yet? The old clock in the hall is ticking eerily. Can you hear it? This is no ordinary tick-tock – each movement of the hand shouts Halloween is near! Are you ready, or will the little horrors haunt you when they find you empty-handed? We all dread the sugar-high that comes with Halloween, not to mention the time and money that goes with it! If you dream of a fun Halloween that is time, money and sugar efficient, prepare to be inspired by these 4 spectacular snacks. Tick-tock, your Halloween treats will rock!

Healthy Orange Treats

Healthy Orange Treats: Firstly, what is Halloween without pumpkins? Problem is, most kids don’t rate pumpkins very highly and certainly never consider them a treat! Oranges rate far higher on the delicious meter, and they are excellent pumpkin-impersonators! Besides, this holiday is all about dressing up, right? The best thing about these adorable Halloween snacks is that they tick all the boxes when it comes to ensuring that sweets are healthy, cost-effective and won’t require a week’s leave to prepare. All you need is a ‘black magic’ marker and an orange. Wave the black magic wand a few times over the face of each pumpkin and your guests won’t recognize them.

Cheese and Pretzel Treats

Cheese and Pretzel Treats: The second aim is to have snacks that literally fly out of your house! These adorable Cheese and Pretzel treats will do just that. If you tried to feed your children cheese and chives, chances are they would think you had had too much magic potion – but these super-charged broomsticks will sweep all their suspicions out the door. These require a bit more time and effort to prepare, as the cheese slices are wrapped around the Pretzels in layers and then sliced into a fringe for the bristles. But beware you don’t get too carried away with these irresistible Halloween snacks!

Pizza Sticky Fingers

Pizza Sticky Fingers: Sticky fingers are synonymous with Halloween snacks, but the problem is that they are usually sugar-sticky. This nutritious snack is not for the faint-hearted! Very quick and easy to make, these gory pizza fingers will give no self-respecting trick-or-treater reason to point fingers at your menu! A regular pizza can be sliced into thin slivers, resembling fingers. Then, simply slice a Red-pepper into triangular pieces and place them on the end of each finger. Voila! You are the creator of very scary, but terribly delicious monster fingers. The best part about these treats is that they are a healthy, filling and will balance the sugar highs.

Monster Eyeballs

Monster Eyeballs: Lastly, don’t be surprised if all eyes are on you this Halloween when you serve up these horrific monster eyeballs! These were made using boiled eggs. There is no reason why the boiled eggs cannot be replaced with cheese balls if you prefer. The bloodshot effect is easy to achieve with red jelly or ketchup, which can be applied with a small paintbrush or even a toothpick. If you are having a frightful time preparing your Halloween snacks in time, you don’t even have to worry if your lines are a bit shaky – no one will even bat an eye.

With these great ideas, this Halloween won’t be made of the stuff that will haunt you for years – you’ll have time to join the fun, and your budget won’t look like it barely survived a vampire attack.
