Healthy Halloween Recipes!

There’s nothing tricky about these Halloween treats! Be the hit of your Halloween gathering with some of these easy to make snacks with a healthy twist by Kaylie Booth of @healthyhacksrd.

Mint Chocolate Superfood Protein Bar Frankensteins

What you’ll need:

  • 1 box Health Warrior Mint Chocolate Superfood Protein Bars
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 24 candy eyes
  • 24 macadamia nuts
  • 2 Tbsp white chocolate chips, melted
  • ¼ tsp matcha tea powder

This Frankenstein is a little more cute than creepy, but is sure to be the talk of your Halloween table spread!  Just unwrap the Mint Chocolate Superfood Protein Bars and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet tray. Melt the chocolate chips and use it like glue to adhere the eyes and the macadamia nut bolts. Then scoop the rest of the chocolate into a ziptop bag and cut a small piece off of one of the bottom corners. Now you can use the ziptop bag like a piping bag to drizzle thin lines of chocolate on the bottom half of the bar. In a separate bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and stir in the matcha powder. Add this to another ziptop bag and repeat the process to add the green drizzled lines over the chocolate ones. Pop them in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up, then they’re ready to serve!

White Chocolate Ghost Strawberries

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb container of strawberries
  • ¾ cup white chocolate, melted
  • 1 Tbsp dark chocolate, melted

All it takes to make these boo-tiful ghosts is some strawberries, white chocolate, and a little bit of dark chocolate. Start by lining a cookie tray with some wax paper. Wash the strawberries and be sure to dry them completely before dipping them into the melted white chocolate. This is easiest if you have the white chocolate in a bowl that’s deep enough so that you can dip the strawberries straight into it. Let the excess white chocolate drip off and back into the bowl and then place the strawberries on the lined cookie sheet tray. Once you’ve finished dipping all your strawberries, place them in the fridge to harden. Then, melt some dark chocolate and use a toothpick to draw on the ghost’s eyes and mouth.  Store them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.

Jack-O-Lantern Oranges

What you’ll need:

  • Oranges
  • Your choice of fruit, nuts, or berries for the fillings.

Orange you glad you don’t have to hollow out a whole pumpkin when you can make these adorable Jack-O-Lantern oranges instead!? To make them, cut a small section off the top of the orange. Cut the flesh out of the orange the best you can. Use a spoon to scoop out the rest, just like you would a pumpkin. On the front of the orange, cut eyes and a mouth out in any shapes you’d like. Fill the hollowed orange up with nuts, berries, trail mix, or anything else you’d like! Pumpkin Seed Bars make excellent filling too!

Apple Slice Witches Hats

What you’ll need:

  • 1 apple
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter chips, melted
  • 7-8 Hershey’s kisses
  • 7-8 mini M&M’s

Any type of apple will work for these wickedly awesome apple slice witches hats. Start by lining a cookie sheet tray with wax paper. Then, slice the apple into as many ¼” thick slices as you can get (it will likely be about 7-8 slices). Trim down each slice to 2 inch rounds using a 2-inch cookie cutter. Then, melt the chocolate and generously spread it over each apple slice so that some drips down the sides. Once you’ve got each slice covered, pop them in the fridge to harden. Next, melt the peanut butter chips. Dip the bottom of a Hershey’s Kiss into the melted chips and press it onto the middle of the apple slice. Add a mini M&M to the front of the hat for its buckle. Store the hats in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to serve. NOTE: I don’t recommend making these too far in advance from when you plan on serving them since the apple slice can get a little soggy.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chia Bar Spiders

What you’ll need:

There’s nothing spooky about how nutritious these Health Warrior Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chia Bar spiders are! Grab a box and roll each bar into a ball. You might have to soften the bar up a bit in your hand before it’ll roll up easily. Then, cut the curved edges off of the chocolate covered pretzels (you’ll want a few extra because some are sure to break) for the legs. Dip the ends of 4 pieces of pretzel into the melted chocolate and press them onto the chia bar ball. Dip 2 mini M&Ms into the chocolate and stick them on the front of the chia bar ball for the eyes. Place the finished spiders in the fridge for a few minutes for the chocolate to firm up and harden, then they’re ready to serve!

“Bone” appétit!
