It’s Halloween “season”, and the stores are fully stocked with Halloween candy in bags of all sizes (mostly HUGE bags that cost over $10 each). So, we understand that there will be a major sugar rush come October 31. However, what about a lighter, healthier alternative? If you have kiddos in school that day or going to a party, why not bring this platter of deliciously fun snacks! They’re cute, easy to make, and healthy compared to the mounds of sugar, chocolate, and corn syrup they would otherwise be consuming.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Large Container Greek Yogurt (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 Cup of Nutella
  • 2 Clementines
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • 3 Bananas
  • Raisins
  • 1 Red Apple
  • Green Grapes
  • Mini & Mallow bits Marshmallows
  • Peanut Butter
  • Black Edible Marker

INSTRUCTIONS:

Spider Web Greek Yogurt Dip

Scoop out the yogurt into a bowl reserving about 1/2 cup. Mix the 1/4 of Nutella with the yogurt. Spoon the reserved yogurt in a baggie then snip off the corner. Squeeze on a web on the top. We made the spider using raisins, but you could also do this with dark grapes as well.

Vampire Apples

Cut the apple in 4 pieces. Then cut a wedge from the top using a knife. Cut a mini marshmallow in half to make the fangs & attach with peanut butter. We used Mallow bits for the other teeth.

BOOnanas

Peel then cut in half. Use raisins for the eyes & mouth attaching with peanut butter.

Monster Eye Balls

Cut the grapes in half. Cut the mini marshmallows in half as well. Press the black edible marker in the middle of the marshmallow then place them on top of the grapes (they will stick).

Orange Pumpkins

Cut a couple of clementines in half then press a piece of a pretzel stick in the top.
