Healthy Halloween Treats
These recipes are delicious, and they all also take less than 20 minutes to make! Not only will the whole family be impressed, but you’ll spend less time in the kitchen and more time partaking in the fun filled festivities!

Mummy Pretzel Sticks
Calling all you white chocolate lovers; this one’s for you!

What you’ll need:

  • 20 mini chocolate chips

  • 10 pretzel rods

  • 2 cups white melting chocolate

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Baking instructions:

  1. Place a pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Place a heat-safe bowl on top, but don’t let it touch the boiling water (this is a DIY double broiler). Melt the coconut oil in the top bowl, then combine the white melting chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted.

  2. Dip the pretzels halfway in the melted white chocolate. Place them on wax paper to dry.

  3. Pour the remaining white chocolate into a piping bag (you can create a DIY piping bag by pouring the chocolate into a Ziploc bag, then cutting off one corner). If your melted chocolate has hardened, then reheat before piping.

  4. Pipe one line at the top of the white-chocolate-dipped pretzel rod, then place two mini chocolate chips for the eyes.

  5. Continue to pipe horizontally down the pretzel rod to mimic the mummy’s wrapping.

  6. Place on a decorative plate and serve!


Monster Mouths
Grab the whole family for this one. This treat is not only tasty but it’s also super fun to make!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 green apples

  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows (or sunflower kernels)

  • 1 lemon

  • ½ cup peanut butter of your choosing


  1. Cut the apples into slices.

  2. Place the slices into a bowl of lemon water for 10-15 minutes so they won’t brown.

  3. Remove the slices for the lemon water and set aside to dry for 10 minutes.

  4. Heavily spread peanut butter over one slice. Place the mini marshmallows (or sunflower seeds) on the peanut butter as “teeth.” Make them crooked to make the mouths look even scarier!

  5. Spread peanut butter on a second slice, then stick it on top of the teeth to finish the mouth.

  6. Make as many as you need, and don’t be scared to indulge in this spooky treat!

  2. Stick each quarter on a popsicle stick, then place on wax paper over a cookie sheet.

  3. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.

  4. Place the melting chocolate in a heat-safe bowl, melt in the microwave, or melt over a double broiler.
