Spooky Snacks 2



As promised more spooky snack recipes!!  Of these three recipes Bebe B enjoyed the Witch Fingers the most..smacking her lips and saying “yum” and “tasty”!  These recipes are wonderful treats that taste good, are healthy and are sure to bring smiles to the little faces in your life!


Monster Face Waffles 



What You Need:

  • Frozen Waffles (we used Van’s Organic) Homemade work too!
  • Almond Butter
  • Cheese (sliced)
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Apple Slices
  • Strawberry Slices
  • Frozen Blueberries
  • Organic Chocolate Chips

Toast the waffles until crispy.  Spread each waffle with almond butter and decorate.  I used apple slices for the mouth, pumpkin seeds for the teeth, 2 blueberries and cheese for the nose and strawberries for the eyes.  For the finishing touch and special treat I added a chocolate chip (stuck on with almond butter) for the iris of each eye.  This makes a great breakfast packed full of fiber and protein!




Witch Fingers



What You Need:


This recipe is almost as fun to make as it is to eat!  Simply dip the ends of the pretzels into the hazelnut butter and stick a sliced almond to it to create the fingernail.  Creepy looking but delicious!



Orange Mousse in Mini Jack-O-Lanterns



What You Need:

  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt (about 1/2 cup)
  • Orange (small to medium sized)
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • Pretzel Stick
  • 3 Organic Chocolate Chips (optional)

Using a sharp knife cut a top in the orange (just like you would do when carving a pumpkin...only smaller).  Pull the top off and set aside.  Using a spoon (or melon baller works too) scoop the orange “guts” from inside and reserve.  Older kids will love helping with this part.  Using a sharp knife carve a jack-o-lantern face in the orange, this will need to be done by adults.  Drain off the juice from the orange “guts”.  In a food processor combine orange “guts”, yogurt and honey, whipping just until you reach a mouse like texture.  Add the mouse to the orange jack-o-lantern and sprinkle with chocolate chip pieces (if using).  To make a lid use the top of the orange (you removed earlier) with a pretzel stick poked into it for the stem.  Kid’s will love eating out of the these tiny jack-o-lanterns!  Bebe B sure did.




WISHING YOU ALL A SAFE, HAPPY, FUN, HEALTHY AND TASTY HALLOWEEN!
