It’s the spooky season and I love coming up with treats that are great for the whole family. Check out the ideas below and tag me on social with your creations.

Halloween food should definitely be fun, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a little healthy too. With all the candy that my kids (and I) consume around the holiday, it’s nice to serve up some treats that aren’t completely scary.

Halloween Snack Tray: In addition to some holiday treats, make a platter with mandarin Jack- O’-lanterns, grape “eyeballs” and one-eyed kumquats. Attach the candy eyeballs with a little honey or nut butter. For the mandarins, simply use a Sharpie to draw on the faces. Ask your kids to help!

Frankenguac: This guy comes to visit us every year. Grab some broccoli and cauliflower florets, mini cukes and other veggies and put him together. A square bowl filled with guacamole is ideal for his face. No one can resist his charms!

Mummies and yogurt bark: Grab your kids fave snack bars, drizzle them with vanilla yogurt, add some raisin eyes and stick them in the freezer for an hour to set before serving. Make a festive yogurt bark by spreading vanilla Greek yogurt onto a 9 X 13-inch baking sheet. Add mini pretzels, M&M’s, and chopped pistachios. Drizzle with melted chocolate and pop in the freezer for 3 hours. Cut into squares and serve in mini paper cups.
