We all know Halloween can sometimes be a sugar overload for kids, so that’s why we’ve created some super simple and super healthy recipes that will satisfy any cravings. 

They’re great for party platters, but also work well as lunchbox snacks too – and if your kids really love them, don’t just limit them to Halloween either! Who says you can’t have spooky snacks all year round?

Clementine Pumpkins

These cute little pumpkins are so easy to put together – and only really need 3 ingredients!

Ingredients

  • Clementines or satsumas
  • Celery stick
  • Edible decorative eyes

Method

  • Peel your clementines or satsumas, making sure the stalk is pulled out of the top
  • Cut your celery stick into 1cm length pieces, about 5mm wide
  • Place the celery stick ‘stalks’ into the top of your clementines
  • Gently dampen the back of your edible decorative eyes and press firmly onto your ‘pumpkins’.

 

Apple Monsters

We’ve done a very simple recipe below for our apple monsters, but if you’re feeling adventurous, why not include some peanut butter in the mouth, with puffed cereal as teeth?

Ingredients

  • Green or red apples (we find green are more monster like)
  • Halved grapes for the tongue (again, red works best for this)
  • Edible decorative eyes

Method

  • Slice your apples into wedges
  • Carefully take your knife, and carve a smaller wedge to create the mouth shape
  • Add half a grape as the tongue (this should simply sit into the mouth)
  • Gently dampen the back of your edible decorative eyes and press firmly onto your ‘monsters’. If the eyes won’t stick, you can rest them on top of the grape half.

 

Ghost Bananas

These are probably our favourite spooky fruit to make – because they’re made up of just TWO ingredients! However, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can also dip the bananas in white chocolate, before adding your chocolate chip ‘eyes’. This makes it much more of a sweet treat.

Ingredients

  • Bananas, halved widthways
  • Chocolate chips

Method

  • Cut your bananas into ‘ghost’ shapes, by slicing them widthways. You should be able to get two ‘ghosts’ from one banana
  • Gently push two chocolate chips into the banana half to make the ‘eyes’.
