Spooktacular Halloween Recipes

Looking for some last minute spooktacular, healthy  Halloween recipes that are sure to surprise your family and friends?

Halloween is a great time to showcase our creativity, but after coming up with costumes and decorations, it can be a little overwhelming (or exhausting) to come up with new  tricks and treats for our little ghouls and goblins, or our guests.

To give you a little inspiration, we are sharing a few of our favorite Halloween recipe and ideas.

Halloween Recipes and Ideas

Melon Brain


It’s creative. It’s gross. It’s healthy. It’s one of our favorite healthy Halloween ideas- MELON BRAIN. 

We thought for this Halloween recipe, it might be a bit easier to watch a video.

Pear Witch Project


  1. Cut the pear in half lengthwise and remove the core (a parent’s job). Place one pear half on a plate as shown
  2. Slice a piece off the top of the pear, cutting away from the forehead at an angle. Shape that piece into a nose; carve a notch into the witch’s face to hold it, and set it in place.
  3. Attach the eyes and wart by carving small circles in the face to hold them.
  4. Cut a grin from the red apple. Carve out an area on the face to hold the grin, and put it in place.
  5. To make the hat, use frosting to glue the cone to the cookie. Let the frosting harden a bit, then place the hat on the head
  6. Grate lengths of carrot hair and tuck them underneath the hat. Tip: If your child is too young to handle a knife, cut the nose and mouth and have him assemble the face with frosting.


Apple Bites


These toothsome treats are a fun and healthy break from Halloween sweets.

For the ingredients, you will only need apples and slivered almonds
Instructions: Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth.
If you’re not going to serve them right away, baste the apples with orange juice to keep them from browning.

Jack-o’-Lantern Hummus Plate

If you don’t have a lot of time to spend on a Halloween-inspired appetizer, this hummus plate is the one for you. Just spread a 16-ounce container of hummus on a salad plate (I used roasted red pepper for its orange hue). Using canned black beans (rinsed and dried with a paper towel) make a jack-o’-lantern face. Use a pretzel stick for the stem. Place the plate on a dinner plate and serve with chips, crackers, veggies, or toasted pitas.
