Healthy Halloween treats: Mini candy apples, toothy monster snappers & spiders on a log
It is finally here, my very first Halloween recipe post! I know I have previously shared links to other foodbloggers’ Halloween recipes, but I have never actually posted any myself, which is actually kinda strange since I am completely obsessed with Halloween and anything magical or supernatural. This year I am planning on sharing several Halloween recipes though and I have actually already made most of them (some of you might have caught some sneak peeks over on my snapchat: mokai_giraf), eek I am so excited for you guys to see them all!
First up we have these three super cute and easy to make Halloween treats that are perfect for the little ones, but also for childish souls like myself ;) I love that they are mostly healthy, that they are super easy to make and that they can be made from ingredients that I almost always have on hand. We don’t really celebrate Halloween here in Denmark, but if we did then I think these would be a perfect addition to the traditional Halloween treats. I love having healthier options on hand as well and kids actually usually love them too – haha especially when you make them look fun and a little spooky in order to camouflage that they are mostly just made apple and celery ;)
Mini candy apples
What you’ll need:
Little pointy wooden sticks (haha I have no idea what they are called in english)
Dark chocolate, finely chopped
Nuts, finely chopped
Date caramel – recipe right here!
Start by using the melon baller to make little apple balls, gently pat them dry with a clean dishtowel and add the wooden sticks. Coat the apples with the date caramel and add your toppings of choice, I coated my mini candy apples with chopped dark chocolate + chopped hazelnuts and almonds. Place the candy apples in the freezer (or fridge) for 20-30 minutes to allow the date caramel to set, enjoy!
To make these toothy little monster snappers simply slice an apple as pictured, grab a slice and add peanut butter + sliced almonds as teeth. Top it with another apple slice with peanut butter and you are done! Easy peasy right?
Spiders on a log
This cute little snack is as easy as it gets. Simply wash and cut celery stalks to your preffered size, fill them with peanut butter and top them with little dark chocolate buttons as the spiders body and then use a toothpick to draw their legs with melted dark chocolate.
