Healthy Horrors for Halloween

I thought this week, I would show some healthy treats for Halloween, not everyone wants sugar, and younger kids will also love these.

Veggie Skeleton

Now this is an easy pre prep platter, I bought an Aldi pack of Cauliflower florets, bell peppers, celery, tomatoes, cucumber, mange tout, carrots – I cut most of these into batons and on a large plate or chopping board arrange into a skeleton shape – I have chosen Aldi’s Onion and garlic dip and a pot of salsa – ‘ghost dip and brains’ ……

Take a pack of strawberries and 2 bars of White chocolate, gently melt the chocolate, line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper, dip the strawberries into the chocolate, holding the stalks then carefully lay the strawberries on the baking sheet, you might need to ‘double dip’ – let the chocolate set, then using a small piping bag with a size 2 round nozzle or a freezer bag with a tiny hole cut in the corner and melt a couple of squares of dark chocolate and pipe eyes and a mouth onto your Ghosts.

Pumpkin satsuma

These look so cute, and very simple, drawn your pumpkin faces onto the satsuma, peel some, and add a little piece  of celery leaf in the top as the stalk

Banana Banshees

A great one for tiny tots,  set done last minute, so they don’t go brown, but very easy – peel a banana, cut in half, then with a pack of chocolate chips press the chips into the banana to make eyes (push base end of chip in) and a mouth (push pointy side of chip in)

I would like to thanks Aldi for paying for all the ingredients used above.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
