3. Oreo Eyeballs

If you’re trying to be extra clever this Halloween, create some Oreo Eyeballs for your guests! They require an imaginative eye but what happens if some don’t turn out perfect? Looks like you’re going to have to eat the evidence!

 

Ingredients:

Oreo Cookies

Blue & green gel icing

Red food coloring

A small paintbrush

Brown M&Ms

 

Directions:

Remove half of the Oreo cookie and discard (eat!) Keep the side that holds the frosting. Add a decent sized glob of either blue or green icing in the middle of the frosting – alternate the colors to have an even amount of each! Place 1 M&M in the center of the icing. Lastly, put a small drop of red food coloring in a bowl or plate. Using the paintbrush, paint red vein on the white frosting, around the colored gel.

 

4. Frozen Banana Ghosts

Boo – nana! These banana ghosts are a dream come true when looking for a healthy treat the kids actually want to eat! Who knew Halloween treats could be something other than candy?!

 

Ingredients: (Makes 4 Ghosts)

1 Banana

4 Popsicle Sticks

8 mini chocolate chips

1 cup of white chocolate

 

Directions:

Cutting lengthwise, slice the banana in half from end to end. Next, cut slices in half to make 4 quarters. Insert Popsicle sticks into the bottom of each piece and freeze on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Once banana pieces are frozen, fill a mug or small bowl with the white chocolate and microwave chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until it is melted and soft. Next, working one at a time, dip the bananas into the white chocolate and reset them on the cookie sheet and wax paper. Working quickly, place the chocolate chips into the bananas as eyes before the chocolate hardens. Return to the freezer until they are hardened. Finally – enjoy a delicious and healthy Halloween treat!
