Spooky Snacks


Here are my favorite Spooky Snack recipes sure to please all.  Perfect for family time or even crowd pleasing at a Halloween party.  And the really cool part is...they’re HEALTHY!!  Kids love helping make these recipes, especially the decorating.  They will love eating them too...just like Bebe B did!


Spooky Eyeball Toasts



What You Need:
  • Naan bread, flat bread or other soft bread
  • Cream Cheese or yogurt cheese
  • eye shaped or round cookie cutter
  • Salsa
  • Black food paint (recipe below)

Cut eyeball shapes out of the bread with a cookie cutter (a circle cookie cutter works great too).  Spread each eye with cream cheese or yogurt cheese.  Draw a circle in the center with the black food paint to make the iris.  Spread the salsa in thin squiggles from the iris to the edge of the eye. Toast the eyeballs in a toaster oven (or 350F degree oven) for a few minutes.  Enjoy!!



Black Food Paint



What You Need:

  • 1 can of black beans (no salt added)
  • ¼ cup water
  • pinch salt
  • Clean squeeze bottle, pastry bag or sandwich bag

Drain and rinse beans.  Puree beans, water and salt in a food processor.  You may need to add a little more water depending on the thickness.  The paint should be a medium thickness that is thin enough to squeeze out of a bottle or bag.  Fill a squeeze bottle, pastry bag or sandwich bag (with a tiny bit of one corner clipped).  Use the paint to draw faces, pictures and more on food!  This paint will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.


Ghost Toasts



What You Need:

  • Naan bread, flat bread or other soft bread
  • Cream Cheese or yogurt cheese
  • Ghost shaped cookie cutter
  • Unsweetened coconut, shredded
  • Raisins
  • Almond slices
  • Black food paint (recipe above)

Cut ghost shapes out of the bread with the cookie cutter.  Spread each ghost with cream cheese or yogurt cheese and decorate with coconut, raisins, almonds and/or black food paint.  Toast the ghosts in a toaster oven (or 350F degree oven) for a few minutes.  Enjoy!!


Cheesy Spiders



What You Need:

  • cheese rounds (such as “Babybel” brand)
  • skinny pretzel thins
  • black food paint (recipe above)

Remove the wrappers from the cheese rounds.  Stick the pretzel thins into the cheese rounds to make spider legs, four on each side.  Draw on a spider face with food paint.  These snacks are so cute it will be hard to gobble them up…but you will be glad you did, they are delicious!
