Halloween Hullabaloo Healthy and Fun Holiday Treats

Halloween is quickly approaching.  If you have kids, you can be expecting the School Halloween Parties.  Most of the parties I ever had as a kid in school, had tons of snacks - which was a potluck of food brought in by the students.  Here's a couple Fun Halloween Party Ideas.

·         vegetable dip
·         4 long carrots
·         1 medium carrot
·         softened cream cheese
·         sliced-almond
·         baby carrots
1.      To prepare them, just fill a serving bowl with your favorite vegetable dip. Wash and peel 4 long carrots for fingers and 1 medium carrot for a thumb.
2.      With a paring knife (a parent's job), cut a flat, shallow notch in the tip of each carrot. Then use a dab of dip or softened cream cheese to glue a sliced-almond fingernail atop each notch.
3.      Stick the fingers in the dip, as shown, and serve with plenty of peeled baby carrots for dipping.

  • Apples
  • Slivered almonds
  1. Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth.
If you're not going to serve them right away, baste the apples with orange juice to keep them from browning.
Thank you Family Fun for these recipe ideas!
