It is no secret that fall is my favorite season of the year. Once September rolls around, I begin planning for pumpkins, Halloween costumes (did you see this years DIY ice cream truck on Instagram?), and cooler weather! This is our first fall in South Carolina, and we are trying to make the most of it! The cooler temperatures are definitely encouraging that fall feeling. We played the boo game with our neighbors, and a few days later, someone boo’d us back. Since we are new to the neighborhood it was fun to start building this camaraderie with our neighbors! I’m pretty sure seeing that candy package on our porch made Brody’s year.
Getting in the spirit of things, I’ve come up with 5 fun Halloween-themed snacks for the kids. I love celebrating the season in small ways such as this!
If you have any fun traditions to celebrate the season, then head over to Instagram and use the #mommasociety to share them with the Momma Society community!
What better way to ring in the new season, than some festive treats! Today I am excited to share my 5 favorite easy-to-make Halloween snacks. When I say easy, I mean it. Each of these has 3 ingredients or less and is perfect for your toddler to assist with.
Let's get started!
1. Mummy Hotdogs
Supplies: hotdogs, crescent rolls, edible eyes
For the perfect Halloween lunch, grab a package of crescent rolls and hot dogs. Roll out the crescent roll dough. Seam the diagonal perforations using your fingers. Using a sharp knife, create long strips of dough approximately a quarter of an inch in width. Wrap around the hot dog leaving room for a face. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes (or until golden brown). Add two edible eyeballs (usually in the baking aisle) to create a face. Enjoy!
2. Donut Eyeballs
Supplies: powdered donuts, blueberries, red icing
Need the perfect Halloween breakfast? Grab a box of powdered donuts. Place a blueberry over the hole in the middle. Use red icing to create an eyeball appearance.
Pairs deliciously with Ripple Foods Chocolate Pea Milk. Since I've had to cut out dairy in my diet while I'm breastfeeding Isla, this stuff has been the bomb. No dairy, less sugar than chocolate milk, and more protein than regular milk!
3. Jack-o'-lantern Quesadilla
Supplies: tortillas, yellow cheese
Using a sharp knife, "carve" a jack-o'-lantern face into the top tortilla of your quesadilla. Fill with plenty cheese and melt.
We paired this with a Ripple Kids pea milk carton and a fun straw for the perfect halloween lunch for Brody.
4. Spider sandwiches
Supplies: pretzel sticks, Jammy Sammy's, edible eyeballs
Grab a box of Plum Organics Jammy Sammy's (or Fig Newtons, or a similar soft cookie). Poke 4 pretzels through each side to create legs. Add two edible eyeballs to the top with a bit of icing to glue them down.
5. Apple Dentures
Supplies: apples, peanut butter, marshmallows
There's nothing scarier than a pair of chattering teeth around Halloween. To create these, grab an apple slicer and slice your apple into 8 pieces. Spread peanut butter on one side of each slice. Grab some marshmallows and place them in the peanut butter on one side. Top the marshmallow with another apple slice.
