I can hardly believe it’s almost time for Halloween – it could have something to do with the 90-degree weather we’ve been having, but who knows! 😉 I always talk about making our Halloween costumes early, but inevitably, we’re always pulling things together at the last minute. Anyone else?! One thing I am pretty good at, though, is planning get-togethers with friends – and I’m happy to spend time searching to find the best Halloween snacks to serve everyone!
In the past, I’ve prepped some fun Halloween snacks for my daughter to share with her classmates at preschool and I’ve made some yummy dishes for Trick or Treating parties we’ve attended. This year, I’ll definitely be making some festive Halloween snacks for both of the girls’ classes and I plan to have a fun Halloween-themed dinner on October 31st. Much of Halloween is about the candy, but I like to think outside the box and come up with creative snacks that are a bit more filling!
Fun Halloween Snacks to Share
Cheese Board with Mini Babybel®
If there’s one thing my girls love, it’s cheese! I’m definitely not going to complain about that since it’s high in protein and has important nutrients. One of our favorites is Mini Babybel®, which is, most importantly, 100% real cheese – and has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives! Mini Babybel® is available right now in the cutest Halloween packaging at Target, which makes it a perfect choice for your festive Halloween snacks. You can find it on the refrigerated cheese aisle in your local Target store! I will serve mine as part of a cheese board with nuts, fruits, veggies and crackers, which makes it the perfect snack for adults and kids alike.
Ghost Mini Pretzels
I made these last year and they were such a hit, I plan to add it to our list of Halloween snacks this year too! This is also the perfect classroom-friendly snack, since it doesn’t contain nuts and it isn’t too messy. All you need are:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, melt white chocolate morsels and then dip each pretzel in chocolate with a fork. Lay each pretzel flat on the parchment paper-covered pan and quickly stick two eyes onto melted chocolate. This is a great one to do with your kids – my daughter had a blast sticking the eyes on the pretzels!
Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix
A sweet and spicy party mix is always a hit and the fact that this one is pumpkin spice flavored makes it even better! I served this Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow last year at a Friendsgiving party and everyone wanted the recipe – that’s how good it is. 🙂
