Four easy and healthy Halloween snacks for you!

Let’s take some trickery out of Halloween snacks because sometimes it feels like it’s Halloween everyday in my household. Two monsters and one frightful mama chasing after them. If only there were spells to make these monsters more obedient say at bath time and oh, I don’t know, every nanosecond of the day? No? It’s called parenting you say. Ah.

Well, let’s just say these monsters are looking to bring some Halloween snacks for their class Halloween party happening soon. This crazed mama ain’t got time for anything complicated. So she gets online and decides on recipes here below where 3 ingredients are the most, no baking is involved and said monsters can be put to work.

Ingredients purchased can be reused for a couple of recipes. All of them are easily available from local grocers like Village Grocer or Jaya Grocer.

Cheesy Witch Broomsticks

Halloween snacks

What you need:

  • Pack of string cheese
  • Pack of pretzel sticks
  • Pack of chives – leftovers can be used in the fourth recipe

  1. Cut each cheese stick in three portions. Make a slit for the ‘bristles’ about ¾ way from the top. Continue making slits (rotate the piece of cheese as you do this) until there are enough ‘bristles’.

2. Use a small knife and make a small insert (where the pretzel stick is to be placed). Call your monster and ask him/her to gently insert a pretzel stick. Use a single fresh chive and tie around the top. Snip ends.

Tip: if making ahead, don’t insert the pretzel yet. Refrigerate the cheese after making the ‘bristles’; just before serving or packing it (in a single layer), insert the sticks. Adapted from this recipe.

Hershey’s Kisses witches hats

Halloween snacks 6 - Happy Go KL

This was by far the kids’ favourite Halloween snack. I mean did someone say Hershey’s Kisses? Not the most healthy option, but I simply couldn’t resist. This is a 2 step, 2 ingredient recipe. 

What you need:

  • A pack of Hershey’s Kisses
  • A box of Oreo Thins
  • A tube of ready-made writing icing (I bought the Queen brand – it has 5 small tubes in varying colours and it will come in handy for the next two recipes).

  1. Grab one Oreo thin and one Hershey’s Kiss. Pipe some icing under the Hershey’s Kiss and press it onto the Oreo cookie.
  2. Pipe more icing around the Hershey’s Kiss once it’s on the cookie (these tubes are unbelievably easy to use!).

Tip: if your kids are old enough they can make this completely on their own. If not, squirt the icing for them and let them press down the Hershey’s Kiss onto the cookie. Adapted from this recipe.

Mummy apples and teeth monsters

Halloween snacks 2 - Happy Go KL

An apple a day… keeps the mummies away? These ones certainly do!

What you need:

  • A bunch of red or green apples
  • A pack of candy teeth
  • A tube of ready-made writing icing, preferably black or red

For the mummy apples, use a thin knife or potato peeler to cut enough skin from the apple, to make it look like it’s wrapped in bandages. Give it two ‘eyes’ with the icing… Done!

For the teeth monsters: cut an apple in four parts and remove the core. With a knife, make a small cut in the front and insert some ‘teeth’ there.

Tip: if the teeth don’t stick well, you can use icing to glue them into the apple.

Apricot Jack-O’-Lanterns

Halloween snacks 9 - Happy Go KL

So we’ve come to the healthy(ish) and simplest of them all. 

What you need:

  • Dried apricots
  • A tube of ready made writing icing (same as used above)
  • Chives

  1. Put the apricots on a large plate. Flatten them. Make a small hole at the top of the apricot by using a chopstick. It doesn’t have to be big; just enough to insert a short piece of chive.
  2. With a steady hand, use the icing tube and draw faces on the apricots.

Tip: if making ahead, refrigerate uncovered. Use good quality apricots, which tend to be sweeter with a brighter hue. Adapted from this recipe.
