Healthy Halloween Treats

By

Are you throwing a Halloween party and looking for some fun halloweenish treats? Or are you just looking for a few ways to fill up little bellies before trick-or-treating to avoid candy overload? If so, this list of healthy Halloween treats will probably help you out! From mummy dogs to jack-o-lantern fruit cups, Halloween eats can be low in sugar and still a lot of fun.

1. Mummy Dogs

These cute mummy dogs are perfect for little hands, or as a finger food at a Halloween party. Making your own dough for the mummy wrap keeps the mummy dogs just a little bit healthier, and at least they offer a bit of protein as a part of a pre trick-or-treating meal. Serve with a little ketchup for dipping.

2. Eyeball Crackers

Just looking at these spooky eyeball crackers might make your guests think twice about putting one on their plate. But with green olives with pimentos supplying a very believable green spooky eye, and cream cheese filling in for the whites of the eyeball itself, they are quite fun to set in pairs upon your Halloween table. This is another item that is a simple finger food ideal for parties and get togethers.
