Halloween and Candy are synonymous—and we’re sure your kids will get enough of it trick-or-treating. When it comes to this year’s Halloween party, though, there’s a better, healthier way to feed your kids, friends, and fellow parents!
With our picks for the healthiest and most delicious Halloween Party Snacks, now you can throw a fun and kid-approved party with snacks that aren’t loaded with sugar! All of the recipes below are easy enough that your kids or even party guests can help you prepare them. Try one (or a few!) of these guiltless treats this Halloween:
Clementine Pumpkins and Banana Ghosts
These cute and healthy party foods take just a few minutes to assemble. The pumpkins are made from clementines and celery sticks, while the ghosts are made from half a banana and a few chocolate chips placed upside down.
Hot Dog and Crescent Roll Mummies
This twist on the classic “pigs in a blanket” recipe is almost too adorable to eat – and preparation is simple! Unroll a container of crescent roll dough and use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into thin strips. Wrap the strips around the hot dogs and bake. Eyes can be added with ketchup or mustard after the mummies cool.
Transform regular, whole wheat, spinach, and sun-dried tomato tortillas into colorful autumn leaves perfect for dipping. Simply use leaf-shaped cookie cutters on the tortillas and then bake them at 400 degrees for about four minutes. The baked tortilla chip autumn leaves can be served with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and hummus.
Along with their Halloween-friendly name, Deviled Eggs are perfect for a spooky get together because of the many ways you can decorate them! Make eyeballs, pumpkins, or spiders in the center, depending on your preference! Make your deviled eggs as usual, then use green and red food coloring for the bloodshot eyeball look. Top with half an olive to complete the eye.
Finally, these spooky, Halloween-themed pretzels can be made with refrigerated bread stick dough. Just slice a bit at each end of the dough stick, and then fold the flaps at the end to look like the end of a bone. Bake as directed and serve plain or with butter, honey Dijon dip, or even soup!
