Healthy Halloween Treats

Whether you are having an all out Halloween bash, or just want something a little extra-special to make for Halloween, these two treats will definitely be a hit with both kids and parents. We all know that there is never a shortage of sugar around Halloween which is what makes these treats so great - they're both healthy and fun!

To make the spider you will need: whole wheat Ritz crackers, pretzels, peanut butter and raisins.  Break pretzel sticks in half and then cover one Ritz cracker with peanut butter.  Add on 8 pretzel halves and then cover with another Ritz cracker.  Add a small amount of peanut butter to the edge of the top cracker and place two raisins there for eyes.  Then you have your spider treat!

Another fun treat is to make String Cheese fingers.  You will need: string cheese, cream cheese and a bell pepper.  Cut the string cheese in half and then use a knife to make small ridges where the knuckles would be.  Cut the bell pepper into small squares to be used for the nail and apply to the string cheese with a dot of cream cheese and you're done!
