47. Apple Smiles
I’ve been doing these apple smiles for some time now, and the kids LOVE them! They’re just as fun to make as they are to eat. Use peanut butter as your glue to hold the mini marshmallows in place. You can make quite a few of these from just one apple.
48. Haunted Pizza
A ghost shaped cookie cutter will do the trick! The cheese tends to melt and turn into a big blob if baked too long, so bake your pizza first, and then add your cheese 5 minutes before it’s done. Then, use pieces of olives or capers for your eyes.
49. Tombstone Sandwiches
Turn their favorite sandwich into a tombstone! You can get two of these out of one sandwich (depending on the size of your bread). First, make your sandwich. Then, just cut them to shape with a knife, perhaps using a round cookie cutter as your guide for the top. Finally, place black paste food coloring, ketchup, jelly or mustard in a plastic sandwich bag and cut a very small piece off of one of the corners to use as a piping bag to write your heading.
50. Apple Bites
If you or your family likes apples with peanut butter, this is for you! The slivered almonds make them look jut like little monster mouths! A perfect little healthy Halloween snack that the kids will love.
51. Lil’ Cucumber Monsters
Let the kids get creative and build their own little edible monsters made out of cucumber disks. Hummus or cream cheese makes for the perfect glue to hold it all together.
52. Carrot Patch Hummus
Slice carrots into disks, slide them on toothpicks with a piece of parsley (for the “pumpkin stem”), and serve them with your favorite hummus dip. Additionally, you could lay these on a plate with a bowl of ranch for dip or add them to the kids’ lunchbox as a healthy side.
53. Puking Monster Melon
Out of all of the creative watermelon displays I’ve seen, this one is my favorite for Halloween. It’s actually pretty manageable, too. The only carving required is the monster mouth. Use the watermelon and other fruit to fill and let spill out of its mouth for display.
54. Cottage Cheese Ghost
A cute Halloween snack, especially for the really little ones! Use cottage cheese as your paint and a plate for the canvas. Perfect for a ghost!
