Little this monster apple faces are so spooky fun, every body will want one! This is a great, healthy alternative to the traditional Halloween sugary treats kiddos usually get a parties since it uses green apples, peanut butter, sunflower seeds and edible eyes. These are scary good =)
I am totally obsessed with these DIY grapefruit jack-o'-lanterns. Not sure how I didn't think of carving a grapefruit before now, but since I've seen her adorableness now, it's pretty much a sure thing that I will be making and taking this to my fall card club gathering! Stuff this little darling with a yummy seasonal fruit salad and people will be wondering why no one has done this before now! .
This peanut butter-stuffed apple is a treat you'll be dying to bite into. What we love about this recipe is that it not only serves as the perfect Halloween nibble, but it doubles as a learning lesson about healthy brushing habits for your children. While eating apples and peanut butter is a pretty common combo, the crown jewel of this recipe comes from the marshmallow teeth. Adding a bit of sweetness and a more complex texture, you'll never want to eat apples without them again! Plus, this cheeky snack will give you and your kids a chance to brush up on tooth regime talk—because monsters have pearly whites, too!
This yellow-and-orange candy is a Halloween staple. In fact, its history dates back to over a century ago! But let's face it: We are much smarter about eating healthy food now. So if you're looking for a sweet treat that doesn't pack in as much corn syrup and artificial everything, try this fruit-base alternative. To make: Layer pineapple and mandarin oranges and top generously with whipped cream. (Maybe one candy corn for decor? We won't tell.) The result? A colorful, fruity parfait that looks and tastes as sweet as candy ... but is way healthier. TIP: Try this one for a breakfast treat and top with yogurt instead of whipped cream. The kids will love it!
