Your children can still enjoy Halloween without splurging on mounds of chocolate and sugary snacks. With imagination and a bit of effort, creating spooky treats with your children can be fun and contribute nutritional value.
Here are a few creative and creepy Halloween Treats that will bring laughter to your whole family.
Spider Deviled Eggs-Make deviled eggs and fill as usual but decorate as spiders by using a black olive, black beet or cooked purple potato to create the "body" of the spider. Use the same food to create the "legs" by slicing the olive, beet or potato into four tiny strips on each side.
Gelatin Jiggles-Use pre-formed Halloween molds and fill with colored gelatin.
Cookie Cutter Sandwiches-Use Halloween cookie cutter shapes to transform regular sandwiches into seasonal surprises.
