1. Boonanas & Pumpkintines
What could be healthier that tangerines and bananas? That’s right, Boonanas and Pumpkintines! With a few chocolate drops and a permanent marker, you can transform boring old fruit into spooky confections. Genius!
2. Watermelon Nightmare!
If you haven’t had quite enough of carving once you’ve completed your pumpkin, it’s time to turn your skills to this weird and wonderful watermelon. Gross? Maybe. Amazing for kids? Definitely. The spookiest way to serve up fruit salad, ever? Probably.
3. Creepy Teeth
Apple slices dunked in lemon juice to stop them from browning, a few mini marshmallows to make the teeth and a slather of peanut butter to hold it all together. These (almost) healthy Halloween snacks are just as fun to make as they are to eat!
Fruit, a few marshmallows, skewers and some chocolate piping are all you need to turn fruit kebabs into totem poles of spooky little faces. Boo!
5. Spooky Strawberries
Dip your spooky strawberries into melted chocolate, then add icing to create scary faces. To make tiny Frankenstrawberries, add a little green food coloring to your melted which chocolate. Try out Savvy Saving Couple’s tutorial to make your own!
