If your boys and ghouls— errr, girls—are anything like we were, they’re hungry when they get home from school. Today, try preparing fun and festive Halloween-inspired after-spook—oops, we mean after-school—snacks. They taste great and look creepy cool, and some double as a fun after-school activity!
Here are some of our favorite ideas:
Mini Mummies – This spooky snack is a cinch to make. It just takes a little pie dough and some cut-up hot dogs. But the mysterious mummy look makes it a whole lot of fun to eat!
Ghoulish Grins – Parents will love this snack because it’s good and healthy, and the kids will love making these silly or scary smiles—and eating them too!
Pumpkin Seed Snack Mix – We’re leaving the spook-factor out of this one. This yummy fall trail mix is full of healthy ingredients, like pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut, and dates. But the chocolate candies add the perfect dose of sweetness for your little ones.
Cheese Cats, Bats, and Jack-O-Lanterns – These flavorful cheesy bites are a favorite after-school snack come Halloween. Of course, you can always change up your shapes to make them perfect year-round.
Parmesan Popcorn Mix – What happens when your children’s favorite snacks come together? This super snack—that’s what! They’re sure to love this savory snack.
Jack-O-Lantern Grilled Cheese Apple Sandwiches – The classic grilled cheese is getting a Halloween treatment. We’re making them pumpkin shaped and adding a little ham and apple. Yum!
