Sugary treats are everywhere during the holiday season, and when the kids are already loaded up on plenty of sweets, every parent will be happy for a few alternatives.

That’s where these healthy Halloween snack ideas come in. From banana ghosts to apple monster teeth, what kid wouldn’t be excited about that?

Best of all, these healthy Halloween snacks can easily be made gluten-free!

Olive Cream Cheese Spider Bites

Our first healthy Halloween snacks are made with olives, cream cheese and gluten-free crackers. Costco sells GF sweet potato crackers, which are orange and perfect for these. Or, you could even make them more gourmet and use baked, sliced sweet potatoes.


  • Gluten-free crackers (sweet potato crackers are orange and festive!)
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Large pitted black olives

How to Make Spider Bites

Spread a little bit of cream cheese on each cracker. Cut the olives in half. Leave one half for the body and thinly slice the other half into 6 slices for the legs. Assemble the legs and body on the cracker. Serve your healthy Halloween snacks!


Bell Pepper Olive Monster Eyes

These tasty little bites are really easy to make with a small circle cutter and a piping bag or Ziploc filled with softened cream cheese. You can also use dairy-free cream cheese such as Kite Hill to keep these and the Spider Bites dairy-free.


  • Bell peppers
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Large black olives

How to Make Monster Eyes

Cut the slides of the bell pepper off in 4 flat pieces. Using a small circle cutter, cut bell pepper circles. Place the softened cream cheese in a piping bag with a large circle tip (or in a ziploc with a hole cut in the bottom) and pipe a little cream cheese onto each circle. Slice the olives into 1/4-inch wide pieces. Place an olive on the cream cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Peanut Butter Apple Monster Teeth

These are a creepy healthy snack made with ingredients I almost always have around. It’s a great alternative to caramel apples, while still being a sweet treat kids will like.

Apple monster teeth are easy to make as a spooky after-school snack during Halloween season, and the whole family will get a kick out of it!

You can use any kind of nut butter or sunflower seed butter if you prefer. (I’ve also seen them made with mini marshmallows as the teeth.) I like to use green apple for a fun pop of bright color, but yellow or red apples works great, too.


  • Green apples
  • Peanut butter
  • Sunflower seeds

How to Make Monster Teeth

Slice the apple. Put a spoonful or two of peanut butter in a small Ziploc. Cut a hole in the bag. Squeeze the peanut butter onto one apple slice. Top with another apple and push slightly to stick together. Place sunflower seed “teeth” along the peanut butter. Enjoy!


Pretzel Cheese Stick Witch Brooms

Our next healthy Halloween snacks are pretzel cheese stick witch brooms!

These are my older son’s favorite out of all of my healthy Halloween food ideas. He doesn’t eat the chive, but it adds such a cute final touch to the brooms!

This would be a fun, spooky Halloween snack for school lunches. These brooms are easy to make-ahead and will stay fresh for at least a day (if kept cool. )


  • Cheese sticks
  • GF pretzel sticks
  • Fresh chives

How to Make Witch Brooms

Cut the cheese sticks into thirds. Peel the bottom part of the cheese stick like a broom. Place the pretzel in the center of the cheese stick. Tie a chive around the broom and cut to size. Enjoy!



It doesn’t get easier than this fun Halloween snack! Bananas + chocolate chips = Boo-nanas!

My kids are obsessed with bananas and this is a fun, easy way to make them special for Halloween. They’re good healthy options for any party spread. (Anything to get some fresh fruit in!)


  • Bananas
  • Chocolate chips (regular size)
  • Mini chocolate chips

How to Make Boo-nanas

Assemble just before serving so they don’t turn brown. Cut bananas in half. Place two mini chocolate chips for the eyes and one large chocolate chip for the mouth. Enjoy your festive Halloween fruit!

Halloween Kids Meals – Halloween Recipes. Halloween Dishes

Halloween is Coming! Creepy and at the same time a fun holiday that children look forward to. A revived fairy tale about a black hand in a black room, which is located in the farthest corner of the black house … If this time your apartment will be a haven for witches, ghouls and ghouls, it’s time to provide the appropriate surroundings and quietly retire to a calmer (or, conversely, more creepy?) place. And do not forget to cook more food for small evil spirits!

There is no need to invent any special children’s dishes for Halloween – appearance is important here. What scope for fantasies – here you have cut off sausage fingers, and spaghetti worms, and creepy eyes made from eggs, and cakes in the form of coffins … Do not spare tomato blood, paint familiar dishes in terrible colors, just don’t overdo it – especially impressionable children can then refuse dishes from pasta or sausages for a long time.

Pinched Sandwiches fingers”

6 sandwich buns,
6 sausages,
bright red ketchup, mayonnaise.

Cut the sausages in half and cut each half lengthwise. Fry in vegetable oil. Cut the buns in half lengthwise, put 4 “fingers” into each, pour ketchup over and cover with the top half of the bun. Mayonnaise draw “nails”. Place the buns on a baking sheet and place in the hot oven to warm up.

Crispy bat wings. To prepare this delicacy, you will need not only products, but also the ability to cut. Using scissors, cut out the wings of bats from sheets of thin pita bread. In principle, you are not required to be particularly accurate, but the wings must be recognizable. Dilute salt and your favorite spices in olive oil to taste, grease the wings with a fragrant mixture and place them on a baking sheet. Put it in a hot oven for 3-5 minutes, making sure that the wings do not burn out, but remain ruddy and crispy.

Salad in Monster Face pita. Cut the pita rolls in half crosswise. Put a leaf of lettuce into each bun, turning it outward – this will be the tongue of the future monster. Fill the pita with any salad, slightly heaping. Sprinkle with grated hard cheese, set two halves of olives (eyes) and a triangle of sweet red or orange pepper (nose).


12 sausages,
1 sheet of ready-made puff pastry,
ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise.

Roll out the thawed puff pastry into a thin layer and cut into strips. Swaddle each sausage like a mummy, making a thickening where the mummy’s hands are hidden, and leaving the “head” uncovered. Place in hot oven for 12-15 minutes, baking until golden. On the free part of the sausage, draw eyes, nose and mouth with ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard.

Mummy’s Head Sandwiches, is another delicious option for preparing Children’s Halloween dishes. Grease lightly dried toasts with butter, put the ham plastic. From rings of olives or olives make eyes, from thin semicircular strips of sweet pepper – an open mouth in a terrible scream. Cut thin slices of light-colored processed cheese into strips and lay them down, imitating bandages and partially covering the eyes and mouth.

Cutlets “Dracula’s Eyes”

400 g minced meat,
1 bulb,
50 ml milk,
1 slice of stale wheat bread,
1 raw egg,
3 boiled eggs,
3 olives, pitted,
6 light-coloured processed cheese slices,

Mix the minced meat with chopped onion, bread soaked in milk and a raw egg. Salt, pepper. Roll up 6 cutlets and place them in a greased form with vegetable oil. Put to bake for 30-35 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the boiled eggs in half crosswise, cut the olives also crosswise. Make a well in the top of the eggs and place the olive cut side up. Drop ketchup into the cut or put a piece of red sweet pepper. Remove the patties from the oven, cover each with a slice of cheese and place an egg cut side down on top of it. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted. Pour ketchup over the cheese, imitating bloody veins.

Scary Face Mini Pizzas

1 pack of ready-made puff pastry,
2 boiled chicken breasts,
1 stack grated hard cheese,
½ stack tomato sauce or ketchup,
1 stack boiled small horns,
olives, red bell peppers.

Cut out circles the size of a tea saucer from the puff pastry. Pour sauce or ketchup, put finely chopped chicken breast, sprinkle with cheese. From pasta, make “hair”, from halves of olives – eyes, from strips of red pepper – an open mouth. Pour over ketchup, simulating bloody streaks, put in a hot oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.


1 kg ready-made pizza dough,
1 egg,
1 olive,
1 stack bright red ketchup,
½ stack grated hard cheese,
poppy – for rolling.


Divide the dough into 2 parts. Roll a ball from one part – the body of the spider. Divide the second part into 2 more parts and roll one more ball out of one – the spider’s head. From the remaining dough, roll out 8 sausages – these will be the legs of the spider. Roll sausages in poppy seeds. Fold the spider, attaching the head and legs to the body, sprinkle with cheese. Cut the olive and make the eyes. Set to bake at 190ºС for 25-30 minutes. Put the finished spider on a flat dish, cut off the upper body and take out the pulp. Pour ketchup into the resulting hole. Tear off the spider’s legs and dip into the sauce.
The main dishes for children on Halloween are, of course, sweets. Prepare the usual cookies and cakes in an unusual way.

Finger Severed Cookies

3 stack. flour,
1 egg,
150 g butter,
5 tbsp sugar,
4 tbsp milk,
almonds – for decoration.

Melt the butter, add sugar, milk and egg, beat with a mixer. Add flour in small portions, kneading the dough. Cut it into small pieces, roll it into the shape of fingers and place on a baking sheet. On the tips of the “fingers”, strengthen the almonds, unpeeled for greater horror, grease with yolk, sprinkle with powdered sugar and bake for 25 minutes at a temperature of 180ºС.

Skeleton Cookies

150 g butter,
75 g powdered sugar,
1 yolk,
225 g flour,
1 tbsp cocoa,
a pinch of salt,
protein glaze – for decoration.

Mix all the ingredients for the dough and knead into a smooth elastic dough. Do not add water or milk, even if the dough will crumble at first. Put the finished dough in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 1 hour. Then roll out the dough to a thickness of 0.5 cm and cut out cookies in the form of figures of people and animals. Put the cookies on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and place in the oven preheated to 200ºС for 10 minutes. On the cooled cookies, use a cornet with icing to apply thin lines in the form of skeletal bones (quite arbitrary, of course!).

Creepy bloody eyes on a plate. For sweet horror, you will need small white marshmallows, pomegranate seeds and thick bright red syrup (preferably not frozen jelly, which can still be poured in a thin stream). Press a pomegranate seed into the center of each marshmallow and draw bloody streaks with syrup or jelly. Let dry before serving.

Ghost Pancakes

2 stack flour,
1 stack pumpkin puree,
2 tbsp sugar,
4 tsp baking powder,
1 tsp salt,
1 tsp cinnamon,
1 ½ stack milk,
4 eggs,
¼ stack. melted butter,
raisins, pieces of chocolate or dark berries – for decoration.

Combine dry ingredients. Mix milk, yolks and butter with pumpkin puree. Pour the resulting mixture into the flour and stir until smooth. Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form and add to the batter, stirring gently to prevent settling. In a wide frying pan, bake the ghost-shaped pancakes, pouring the dough into shapeless clouds. While pancakes are frying from the bottom, put 2 berries, raisins or pieces of chocolate smaller and 1 larger, forming the eyes and mouth of ghosts. Flip and fry pancakes as usual. Children will be delighted!

Evil Witch Hats ice cream. You will need large round chocolate chip cookies, chocolate waffle cones and chocolate ice cream to fill. For decoration, you will need colored dragees and green-colored glaze. Fill waffle cones with heaps of ice cream, stick onto cookies to make pointed hats, and place on a serving tray. Put in the freezer. Before serving, make a ribbon of icing by running a cornet over the junction of the waffle cone and biscuits, and strengthen one dragee.

Ice cream “Mold bricks”. To make this dish you will need waffle or cookie ice cream, blue and green confectionery topping or coconut flakes, protein or protein cream and blue and green food coloring. Prepare the cream and color it with food coloring. The sicker the color, the better. Cut the ice cream in half, if the briquettes are very large, quickly spread with cream and dip in the topping (chips). Arrange on a platter and place in the freezer.

Strawberry ghosts. Melt white (non-porous!) chocolate with a small amount of heavy cream in a water bath. When all the chocolate has melted, dip each strawberry, holding it by the tail, into the chocolate and quickly transfer to a tray lined with baking paper. When laying the berries on the sheet, stretch them slightly so that the excess chocolate forms “ghost tails”. Before the chocolate hardens, stick in a couple of small brown balls of candy sprinkles – these will be the eyes of the ghost. Place in refrigerator. When the chocolate has hardened, dip a toothpick into the melted dark chocolate and draw an open mouth.

Meringue “Ghosts”. In order for you to get a good meringue, pay attention to the tips of our site. Having been theoretically savvy, start preparing a wonderful and even not at all scary dessert for the kids. Take 50 g of powdered sugar for each protein. Add a little lemon juice or crystalline citric acid to the proteins, mix and start whipping, adding powder. Beat until “hard peaks” are reached when the whites are firmly attached to the whisk and do not fall off. Using a pastry bag, pipe the meringues onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper, deliberately pulling them up to make ghost heads (like in Disney cartoons). Stick raisin eyes in the meringue and bake in a not very hot oven for an hour and a half. Let cool in the oven and carefully remove from the sheet. Molten chocolate can be used to draw a mouth.

Dead Man’s Brain

2 bags of semi-finished jelly made from strawberries, raspberries or other bright red berries,
1 bag of worm gummies,
blue or green food coloring,
deep plate with painted eyes and mouth.

Dilute the jelly according to the instructions on the package, reducing the amount of water by about a third. Pour off part of the jelly and color it with dye (the color will turn out just disgusting). Pour the red jelly into a bowl and refrigerate to set. Stir the jelly several times so that its surface even remotely resembles the cerebral cortex. Stick gummy worms into the frozen jelly, melt the jelly dyed with dye and pour disgusting streaks over all this abomination. Brrr…

And, of course, you can’t do without the queen of a spooky ball – a pumpkin. For kids, a real pumpkin pie will be the best treat. And if you decorate it with an ominous web, then it will also be a terribly delicious cake.

Spider Web Pumpkin Pie

300 g pumpkin,
100 g butter,
150 g sugar,
3 eggs,
1 lemon,
1 stack flour,
1 tsp soda.
For decoration:
white and brown glaze.

Grate raw peeled pumpkin on a medium grater. Peel the lemon with a fine grater and squeeze out the juice. Rub the butter with sugar until white, add the eggs and mix thoroughly. Add zest, pumpkin and lemon juice, mix and add flour and soda. Stir until smooth and put the dough into a greased form. Put the mold in the oven, preheated to 180ºС, for 30-40 minutes. Pour the brown glaze over the cooled cake, let dry. Using a cornet, apply circles of white icing on the surface of the cake at a distance of 1.5-2 cm from each other. Then, using a thin wooden stick, draw radial strips from the center to the edges, while the circles will be deformed. The web is ready! Get a toy or edible spider and put it on a pie.

Blue-green lemonade. You will need bright yellow lemonade, green and blue food coloring, and ice cubes. Pour lemonade into glasses, put ice and drip a drop of blue and green dye. With a thin stick, lightly stir the ice in the glasses, but do not stir so that the bright streaks of dye spread inside.

Making kids’ Halloween meals is easy and the kids will love it! Bon appetit!

Spooky Treats: 7 Halloween Monster Foods You Can Make Easy with Kids – Magazine

Have bats, ghosts, spiders and pumpkins already infested your house? Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays for children. Why not use it for a fun family tradition of making scary and funny goodies with the kids. We’ve put together 7 easy and healthy recipes for a spooky Halloween feast. And parents are in for a surprise at the end of the article 🙂

All parents know that salad is not the most favorite dish of children. But if you make funny monsters out of seasonal vegetables, they will be eaten in an instant! So, you will need a few sweet peppers – preferably different colors, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and a few green olives. Cut the tops off the peppers to make the caps. Stuff peppercorns with chopped vegetables and lettuce. Cut off several long thin slices from cucumbers and carrots – these will be protruding tongues. Hook olive eyes on the hats with toothpicks – and the salad monsters are ready!

Wondering how to turn an ordinary fried potato into a spooky Halloween dish? All you need is a fruit knife and some inspiration. Wash a few oblong potatoes thoroughly. Use a fruit knife to cut scary faces on them: eyes, open mouths, triangle noses. Let the children dream up and come up with the most terrible faces, and you will help cut them out. Brush the potatoes with olive oil, wrap in foil and bake in the oven for 40 minutes. When the zombie chapters are ready, they can be decorated with ketchup “blood”.

This dish will not leave any child indifferent, because both the appearance and the composition are exactly what children love. You’ll need spaghetti pasta that’s already cooked, which can be seasoned with olive oil or tomato sauce, whichever your family likes. Children can easily cut out Jack O’Lantern’s eyes and mouth on large sweet peppers, and then stick his brains inside – spaghetti. Yes, and so, as if his head exploded, and the brains climbed from everywhere!

We bet this will be a real wow-dish of your Halloween table. So, prepare 8 rectangles of frozen dough (approximately 15×5 cm in size), 8 thin sausages, grated mozzarella cheese, 8 almonds or pumpkin seeds, tomato paste and one loose egg yolk. And then – well-coordinated teamwork of children and parents: put a sausage on each strip of dough, sprinkle with cheese, wrap the dough in an even sausage. With a culinary brush, anoint each “finger” with beaten yolk. Put a dot of tomato paste on the tip of each finger (for more horror) and glue a nut or pumpkin seed on it – these are “nails”. After 20 minutes in the oven, the “fingers” will brown and become the most terrible treat!

Even the smallest children can cope with this healthy and cheerful dessert, the main thing is to buy different fruits and let their imagination run free. Here are a few options: Peeled bananas can easily become “ghosts” by making eyes and mouths out of chocolate drops. Large green grapes will become bulging eyes with the help of black and white chocolate. And peeled tangerines will instantly turn into mini pumpkins if you insert a long piece of a green apple into each. Quarters of apples will be transformed into cheerful mouths if you stick teeth from seeds and long tongues from strawberries or carrots into them. We are sure that once you give the kids enough fruits, chocolates and nuts, they will create a whole collection of scarecrows.

Another simple and fun dessert that takes a minimum of time and effort. You will need sweet straws and black and white chocolate. Melt two types of chocolate in a water bath, pour each into a strong plastic bag and poke a small hole in the corner. On this, the role of parents is over – then the children will do quite well without you: they will break the straws into smaller pieces, make something like a snowflake out of them and draw a web on top with chocolate. To make the sweet cobwebs freeze faster, put them in the refrigerator for a few minutes.

What about drinks? They must be delicious and creepy! Fill two rubber gloves with water and leave in the freezer overnight. Cook the usual berry-fruit compote – it is better to let it be red or pink. Pour it into a large glass bowl, add the orange sliced ​​​​in circles and put “ice hands” in the drink. To add even more heinousness, place worm jelly candies in the bottom of the glasses and keep a close eye on how the guests will drink your drink!

What about entertainment for parents? There is also an idea for an adult drink – a delicious apple punch with “severed heads”. First, have the children create some scary heads for the drink. To do this, soak peeled apples in a magic mixture: water, a little salt and the juice of one lemon.
