Spooky Snacks For a Healthy Halloween!

Halloween is a fantastic time to get creative. We have some super easy, yummy and healthy snack ideas that will make you the ghostess with the mostess.

We all know how Halloween is a haven for sweeties and all things naughty. Here is some inspiration to get munching this Halloween on something a little healthier and a little bit spooky.

 Pumpkins with a Twist

You will need:

  • Oranges, mandarins or satsumas
  • Black pen

Use Oranges, mandarins or satsumas as a base and without peeling, draw on a spooky face. These are super easy to do and will make the fruit all that more attractive to little ones! We used mange tout as a stalk, but cucumbers, celery or even salad would work.

Plain Pumpkins

You will need:

  • Orange, mandarin or satsuma
  • Mangetout

If you don't fancy drawing on fruit skin, simply peel the orange, mandarin or satsuma and pop a little bit of something green and leaf like as the stalk. We used mange tout but feel free to use anything that you like!

Ghostly Bananas

You will need:

  • Bananas
  • Knife
  • Chocolate buttons or Chocolate icing

For this super quick snack, peel and cut the banana in half. Stand each half on a plate before using chocolate buttons or icing to pop on a ghostly expression!

Strawberry Ghosts

You will need:

  • Strawberries
  • White cooking chocolate
  • Optional: Chocolate Icing

*WARNING* this does include a little more chocolate than one would maybe desire... but it's all about balance! Warm some white cooking chocolate up and dip the strawberries in before setting them on a plate and popping them in the fridge to harden. You can even pop on a ghostly expression with chocolate icing if you feel like it!

The Glasses are Alive!

You Will Need:

  • Grapes
  • Glasses
  • Googley eyes

For this glass of horrors, we filled a glass with grapes and popped on some googly eyes to bring it to life. You can always decorate further; however, we loved the minimalistic style of this. Very simple and cute - ahem, we mean scary. For parties, you can even make a whole family of scary characters?

These snacks will be hoovered up by little ones in no time; however, if you are thinking of sending some home with guests, then you need to think about packaging. Have you thought about personalised boxes to go the extra mile for your celebration? See our Tiny Box designer service where you can print an image onto food-safe boxes, perfect for the ride home.
