Halloween recipes for spookily easy and healthy party snacks

Trick or treat? These ghoulish Halloween party food recipes combine both! Frankenstein marshmallows, anyone?

We’re not going to lie to you: Halloween is one of our fave celebrations of the year. Not only because we’ve been accused of being horrible old witches on more than one occasion (thanks, teenager), but because we get to dress up in outrageous costumes, eat our body weight in candy (because we have to help the kids out, right?) and decorate our homes with some seriously creepy-but-cool DIY crafts. Add a table laden with chocolate pot monsters, edible spiders, mummified toast and severed hot dog fingers, and, voila: one of the best family fun fests of the year! And we’re about to make your Halloween party snacks spookily easy…

1. Boo-nanas

For those without natural Nigella Lawson kitchen skills (ie, us), this healthy but spooky treat (pictured above) is a cinch. The boo-nana instructions by Veggie Quest are so failproof that even the toddler can help out.

2. Monster Avocado Chocolate Pudding Pots

Forget the Jack O’Lanterns, and whip up some Rice Krispie Snack O’Lanterns instead. Snap, crackle and pop guaranteed – watch The Motherhood‘s video tutorial for Krispie backup.

5. Apple and Peanut Butter Monster Mouths

WARNING: this one contains nuts so move along or substitute with a strawberry jam (more gruesome too!) if you have anyone with allergies coming to your party – a reaction would be far scarier than any Halloween party game you had lined up! Now that’s cleared up, these apple and peanut butter monster mouths by Smart Lifebites are pretty darn adorable.

6. Spider Cake Balls
