Healthy Halloween Treats
Creative goodies for a Halloween party
Freaky Frozen Yogurt
Frozen yogurt witches are delicious and healthier than ice cream novelties.
- Frozen yogurt
- Pointed sugar ice cream cones
- Thin licorice strips
Place a scoop of frozen yogurt in the center of a plate. Poke strips of licorice on the top and over the sides of the frozen yogurt to make your with’s hair. Top with a sugar cone witch’s hat. Use decorator icing or gel to add a face and decorations to your witch.
Haunted Trail Mix
Kids will grab this mix by the handful. Adding crackers, pretzels and nuts makes it a nice break from just candy.
- Fish crackers
- Oyster crackers
- Pretzel sticks
- Mini M&M candies
- Gummy treats (spiders, bugs, etc.)
- Candy corn
Mix all crackers and treats together in a large bowl or sealed container.
Don’t Forget the Games
No matter what the rules, games are a great way to wind the party down and keep every one at the party involved. Organize a game of “bobbing for apples.” Have kids guess the number of candy corns in a jar. Challenge kids to see how many ways they can count and sort their own Halloween goody bags. You can even hand each child a roll of toilet paper and hold a mummy-making contest. Check out this article for more Halloween party games.
The bottom line, says Nissenberg, is to have fun. Remember, during Halloween and throughout the year, “messes can be cleaned up, but the memories will last a lifetime!”
