I love Halloween snacks, but many of the ideas I've found online are either cake or cupcakes. Kids don't need any sugar before going out trick-or-treating, so I've compiled over 20 of my favorite healthy Halloween recipes to bring to your Halloween parties. And none of them are cake. Enjoy!

I absolutely adore all the spooky cute Halloween snacks I've been seeing on Pinterest, but the girls and I wanted to come up with some new ideas this year as well. After our Candy Corn Popsicles, we dreamed up with these cute witch hats made with pointy cones and filled with berries.

Whole fruit ice pops that look like candy corn make a healthy Halloween treat.
My girls absolutely love candy corn. They are certainly cute, but most brands are also filled with sugar, GMO ingredients, and artificial colors... ick! Over the weekend I made a batch of tropical ice pops that resemble the kids' favorite Halloween candy, but are actually organic, gluten free, vegan, and packed with healthy nutrients. The girls were so excited to see these in the freezer.

Last weekend I invited some of our friends over for an al fresco autumn dinner party. We were celebrating Yummy Hubby's birthday, and his completing a 100 mile bike ride the previous day. We had 10 adults and 9 kiddos over. Little miss Four was so excited to help me set the kiddie table while I worked on the grown-up table scape. She loved making the table pretty with flowers. Clearly we don't have 10 matching chairs, which is the reason for all the mixing and matching at the tables.
At dinner the other night, Yummy Hubby asked, "Have you put this garlic bread on your blog? Because it's amazing!" So though this is not exactly a "recipe" because it is so simple, I promised him I would share with you how I make my "amazing" garlic bread. You can get it all ready for the oven early in the day and pop it in when you're ready to eat.

This fall, apple crisp has become one of our favorite sweet treats. It takes about 10 minutes of prep time and then it goes into the oven, making your house smell 1 million times better than any pumpkin pie scented candle ever could. Apple crisp is so easy, that we've even made it on busy school nights. You probably have all the ingredients at home right now. Though Honeycrisp apples are my favorite for baking right now, I'll use any I happen to have.
