Fruit and Nut Crispy Treats

healthy halloween treat  When we make typical Rice Krispy treats, everything put in is completely void of nutrients.  In addition, Christy let us know Rice Krispies has high fructose corn syrup! What a disappointment.  Oh well, no need to fear, let’s make these instead this Halloween and give our kids a Halloween treat that actually has some vitamins, minerals, and tastes AMAZING!!

Fruit and Nut Crispy Treats

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup  cashews
  • 5 ounces baking white chocolate (Check your labels!  Get the most simple ingredients possible. No hydrogenated fats!  My label had: sugar, cocoa butter, milk, non fat milk, soy lecithin, artificial and natural flavors.  Almost perfectly complies with my 5 ingredients or less rule)

DSC_0704 Chop all dry ingredients or place in food processor and pulse for just a second.

Melt white chocolate.  Blend everything together and shape into Halloween molds.  Chill for 1 hour.

Hi Cathy- I was about to tell you I didn’t know because I threw away the box, but then I found it online:
Baker’s Premium White chocolate. Here is the image, but I actually got it at Walmart.

YUM! What brand of white chocolate chips do you buy? I find that finding white chocolate chips with acceptable ingredients is exceedingly hard to do. Ghirardelli white chocolate chips (what I usually buy) are fine, but I like your chips’ ingredient list better!

Mindy says:

Kudos to you for not devouring this whole batch! They look yummy and quasi-paleo to boot!

So cute! I love these little ghosts with all the yummy dried fruit.

Amy says:

Sounds good Shauna.. I bet the more you grind up the ingredients, the less white chocolate you would have to use. Was it too much chocolate? I should have added sunflower seeds too! I even have them!

Shauna says:

Those are delicious! I had to substitute sunflower seeds for the cashews and I ended up blending everything to a coarse powder instead of leaving it chunky. We also rolled it into balls – I know…it’s like it isn’t even the same recipe right? 🙂 However, even my nut hating daughter ate one. I don’t know if she will come back for more…but at least she tried it! Thanks for all your great info and recipes on this blog!
