5 Healthy Halloween Treats
Finding 5 healthy Halloween treats for your children gives you a head start on your preparations for the scary night. By using healthy ingredients it is very easy to create some super spooky treats for your Halloween gang.
- Bat and Ghost Chips. Using large flour tortillas and cookie cutters, cut out shapes of bats and ghosts and lightly brush both sides with oil. Arrange the shapes on a baking tray and lightly broil turning when they start to brown. Once down take out and sprinkle salt on both sides.
- Pumpkin Seeds. Healthy Halloween treats don't have to be difficult. Crave a pumpkin to display and save the seeds. Arrange the seeds on a cookie tray creating one layer, and leaving small spaces between them. Sprinkle the seeds with salt, and roast in the oven until crispy.
- Spooky Jello Jigglers. Make orange and purple Jello as directed on the box. Pour mixture into a 13-inch by 9-inch pan and put in the refrigerator until it solidifies. Remove from the refrigerator and use cookie cutters to cut into Halloween shapes.
- Apple Bites. An easy yet great looking healthy Halloween treat. Quarter and core an apple cut a wedge into the skin side of the apple to represent a mouth. Then place slivered almonds for teeth. If not using right away baste with orange or lemon juice to prevent browning.
- Slushy Frog Eggs. Chop up kiwi fruit and mix with the juice of one lime then add enough yogurt to make a smoothy and blend well. Pour over crushed ice into a small glass and place a slice of kiwi fruit over the top.
