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
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.
Black Bean Cat Crudités
This skeletal display is super healthy, no bones about it — just assorted fresh vegetables and a bowl of dip arranged in the shape of a spooky cat. Just arrange vegetables in the shape of a cat, as shown and serve with black bean dip.
- Black bean dip
- Cherry tomatoes
- Green beans
Pear Witch Project
- Cut the pear in half lengthwise and remove the core (a parent’s job). Place one pear half on a plate as shown
- 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.
- Attach the eyes and wart by carving small circles in the face to hold them.
- Cut a grin from the red apple. Carve out an area on the face to hold the grin, and put it in place.
- 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
- 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.
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.
