Make a batch of pistachio pudding instead and have the eyes peering out from a green swamp!

Jack-O-Lantern Salad

Halloween is all about the candy: I know it, you know it, and trust me, the kids know it. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few fun ways to sneak a veggies into your day on October 31st. These Jack-o-Lantern salads a perfect example. Grab a few peppers and give them the pumpkin treatment. Once you’ve carved a spooky face into each one, fill it with the salad of your choice.

Brain Cookies

Get gruesome with these brain cookies. Using your favourite homemade or store bought cookie, create a tiny brain on each one to bring out the Halloween spirit. Use a bit of icing to stick a marshmallow to the top of each cookie. Then to create the brains pipe pink icing onto the marshmallows in tight squiggles.

Ghostly Bananas  

Not something you would associate with one another, but bananas make the perfect ghouls. Just peel the banana and use three chocolate chips for eyes and a spooky mouth. Done and done. Want to add to the scene? A peeled clementine with a celery stalk made great pumpkins!

Hot Dog Mummies

A scary twist on the party favourite pigs in a blanket, this spooky appetizers is bound to please kids and adults alike. Wrap hot dogs in croissants, leaving a small space for the peppercorn eyes, and bake in the oven. Attach peppercorn eyes after baking and viola, mummy dogs.

Wicked Witch Fingers

Add a little green food colouring to your next batch of shortbread. Make sure the cookies are long and finger-like in shape before adding an almond as the fingernail. If you want your Wicked Witch Fingers to be really believable, be sure to form knuckles and a few age lines.

Mummy Pizza

All it takes is a piece of bread, some marinara sauce, cheese and something for eyes (think olives, cucumber slices or cherry tomatoes). Perfect for dinner right before trick-or-treating: pair it with the Jack-o-Lantern salad and you’ve got all the food groups covered!

Monster Mouths

The perfect balance of a healthy treat, use two apple slices, peanut butter and candy coated chocolates to create these monstrous snacks, sandwich peanut butter between two apple slices and then arrange the candy coated chocolates like teeth between the apple-PB sandwiches.

Frankenstein Cake Pops

This one might take a bit longer to make. Start with homemade cake pops or (the easier route) marshmallows on sticks. Then, melt down pastel green chocolates and cover the pops. Final step, using melted down dark chocolate, create a little face completed with a few stitching scars of course.

Creepy Crawling Edible Spiders

Using olives and spaghetti for adults and grapes and string cheese or licorice for kids, build these little arachnid friends for a great Halloween themed appetizer.
