Let’s leave the sugary treats for Trick or Treating and see if we can sneak Healthy Halloween Snacks with some nutritional value into our kids this Halloween. Try these quick and easy homemade Halloween recipes to create ghosts, goblins, mummies and spiders that are good enough to eat!
If you’re hosting (or should we say ghosting) a Halloween themed party check out our Free Printables for Halloween.
In my house we call these mini pizzas and with a few simple twists they can be made into an easily edible Halloween snack. All you need is bread, tomato sauce, or ketchup, for our friends in the USA, cheese and olives. Get the full recipe from Spaceships and Laser Beams.
“Boo” Nana Pops
This is a deliciously cool treat and all you need is 1 banana, white chocolate, 8 mini choc chips and 4 popsicle sticks. You can find the full recipe at Skinny Taste.
If you have any white chocolate left over from your Frozen Boo Nana Pops and some mini choc chips have a go at these cute little Strawberry Ghosts. Yum! This recipe suggests using Candi Quik icing which might be a little easier to work with but if you are able to master white chocolate it can make a delicious substitute.

Spider Web Pizza
I tried these with my kids and they loved them! We used savoury muffins as the base and the kids loved making the little olive spiders. Get the recipe from The Domestic Mama.
Cheesy Witch Brooms
These Cheesy Witch Brooms are adorable, easy and look fantastic on the plate. Perfect for a school party or to pack in the kids lunchbox, these also work well for a Harry Potter party theme too. All you need is scissors, 12 slices of cheese, 12 pretzel sticks and 12 fresh chives. Find the recipe on Cocinando Con Catman.
I have spotted these cuties a few times on Pinterest and can’t believe how simple they are for a fun Healthy Halloween Snack. I’m not sure how well they will be received if the kids in your neighbourhood come Trick or Treating but they look cute on a platter with the Clementine Pumpkins. Simply cut a banana in half and press choc chips into it to make the ghost face.
Adorable! All you need is bunch of peeled clementines, small oranges or mandarins and celery cut into small pieces. Cute! Funny how kids will eat fruit when it’s presented differently. Both of these recipes can be found on Spaceships and Laserbeams.
Another easy healthy Halloween snack that can be made with a variety of ingredients are these Spider Crackers. Those pictured are made with cream cheese, Jatz crackers and pretzels but you can substitute the cream cheese for tzatziki or Greek yoghurt or peanut butter (if you don’t need to be mindful of allergies). Oreos or chocolate biscuits also make very creepy sweet spiders! Get this recipe from La Jolla Mom.
Super cute, fun and easy! These are made using apples, toothpicks, marshmallows, jam or peanut butter and almond slivers but there are plenty of things you can use to make these cite little, I mean menacing, monster faces. Tip: Leaving the apple slices in salt water for a second or two will stop them from browning. Get the full recipe from Cute Food For Kids.
These are a fun Halloween treat to sneak into your kids’ lunchboxes. Who knew that Babel cheese, olive slices, tomato sauce and food colouring could make such a gruesome eyeball? Get the complete instructions from Cute Food For Kids.
Spooky Cheese Pops
While you have the bag of Babel cheeses out make a batch of these Spooky Cheese Pops using dried seaweed to make the fiendish faces. Another cute recipe, get the full instructions from Cute Food For Kids.
Fiddly but fun and absolutely delicious! Pipe cream cheese into the celery and arrange ham strips like bandages across the body. Cranberries make cute eyes but olives work just as well. Spread a thin line of cream cheese on a rye cracker and the mummies will sit in their sandy beds. Get complete instruction from Betty Crocker.
Hot Dog Mummies
These little Hot Dog Mummies are adorable and just watch their bodies get snatched off the plate! Wrap thin strips of rolled pastry, cut in strips with a pizza slicer, around mini hot dogs and bake in the oven 14 minutes at 190ºC. Get the full recipe from Seakettle.
