Cheese and Pretzel Spider Bites

I love these Spider Bites for Halloween food, because it’s a quick snack, we always have the ingredients, and the kids love to make their own!

Cucumber Skulls or Pumpkins

Slice a cucumber into rounds. Using the edge of a knife, cut out face shapes from the inside.

This creamy and refreshing smoothie gets it spooky orange color from frozen peaches and carrots!

Candy Corn Fruit Cup

Just as sweet- but much more nutritious! These Candy Corn Fruit Cups are made with pineapple, oranges and whipped cream- or use vanilla yogurt!

Pumpkin Hummus

This easy, homemade Pumpkin Hummus is a delicious and adorable (not to mention healthy!) snack that will make a great addition to your Halloween celebration!

Banana Ghost

Simple, but effective! Cut a banana in half and simply use melted chocolate in a piping bag to add a face. That’s it! We’ve also turned our bananas into mummies by piping peanut butter in a crisscross pattern across the bananas. Finish them off with candy eyeballs!

Kiwi Monsters

These cute little monsters will be a big hit with your little eaters! Simply peel and slice your kiwi. Add a slice of strawberry for a tongue and hold it together with two toothpicks. Add a marshmallow to the top of each toothpick and add a dab of melted chocolate for the eyes.

Spiders on a Log

With the addition of chocolate chips, your ants on a log get a Halloween makeover that your kids will love!

Apple Monster Mouth

Slice apples into wedges.  Spread one side of the apple with peanut butter, then top with a row of marshmallows for teeth. Add another slice, peanut butter side down, on top of the row of marshmallows. Hold together with two toothpicks topped with another marshmallow for the eyes. Use melted chocolate or edible marker for the middle of the eyeball.

I love this idea for zucchini with pizza sauce, mozzarella and a slice of olive! It totally looks like an eyeball!
