Healthy Halloween Treat Ideas

I can’t believe that Halloween is nearly here. We’ve been watching a few of our favorite Halloween movies, like Fun Size, Monster Squad, and Hocus Pocus to help get into the Halloween spirit, and I’m excited to make some fun treats this weekend, too!

The following ideas are some of my favorites for satisfying your sweet tooth, without the refined sugar or artificial preservatives found in many popular processed candy bars. I hope you’ll enjoy them if you’re looking for some healthier, yet still satisfying, treats, too.

1. Homemade Butterfingers.

These crispy, peanut buttery candy bars are made with just 5 all-natural ingredients and taste ridiculously authentic. Get the recipe here.

2. Spooky Witch Finger Cookies.

These gluten-free cookies get their naturally green hue from matcha powder. You can add sliced almonds for a “witch” finger look, or dark chocolate chunks for more of a “monster” finger. Get the recipe here.

3. Healthy Snickers Bars

These no-bake candy bars feature a homemade almond nougat topped with an addictive date-based caramel, peanuts, and a dark chocolate coating for a treat that’s lower in sugar and higher in nutrients. Get the recipe here.

4. Date-Sweetened Peanut Butter Pumpkins.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins are a healthier alternative to the popular Reese’s version, and you can make them into all sorts of fun shapes! Top with melted dark chocolate or your own homememade chocolate coating for a lower sugar treat. Get the recipe here

5. No-Bake Twix Bars

6.  Mini Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

These classic treats were my childhood favorite, and I love making mini versions for a perfect bite-sized treat. Get the recipe here.

7. Mounds Bar Truffles

Last year, I dressed up as Snow White in a borrowed costume and had a blast. I have very dark brunette hair so it worked. My daughters also dressed up in their Snow White costumes (Ages 2 and 4). And I made my husband dress up as Prince Charming, stockings and all. At first, he balked, and said “no way” to the stockings but I convinced him after awhile. Target sells extra-large thickish stockings that will work for a man. He’s 6’3′ so it was tough. He was afraid that he was showing too much leg, but I found a long velvet jacket to go with it and of course a crown (nevermind all the neighborhood men who couldn’t make eye contact with him all day.) Ha. I made silver buckles out of tinfoil for his shoes. I still can’t believe he went along with it!!! This year, the Elsa costume I wanted is over $300 on Amazon and my husband gave the firm “no” on that one. Oh well. My daughters are being Anna and Elsa (of course) My Dachshunds are being a Cop and a Bride.

Love the Frankenstein Kiwis and the Candy Corn fruit kebobs, too cute for their own good!!
