    Trick or Treat Yourself….

    Say goodbye to the sugar-fuelled ghosts of Halloweens past. Here are three spooktacular Halloween snacks that will keep the kids happy.

    Munchy Apple Minions


    An apple a day keeps the monsters away. These munchy apple monsters are fun to make with the kids (and an easy way to get them eating more fruit!).

    The Recipe:


    • 2 green apples, each quartered
    • peanut butter
    • 32 sunflower seeds
    • 3 strawberries, sliced
    • 1-2 sugar eyes per monster


    1. Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth.
    2. Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of peanut butter.
    3. Stick 4 sunflower seeds into the top of the mouth like jagged little teeth.
    4. Add 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth – it’s the tongue.
    5. Add a dot of peanut butter to each eye and stick onto the apple above the mouth.

    These banana pops are a great alternative to sugar-filled ice creams and lollipops. If you want to go totally refined sugar-free, but keep things delicious, use Greek yoghurt instead of white chocolate.

    3 Halloween Snacks For The Kids


    • 1 medium banana
    • 100g good quality white chocolate
    • 8 mini chocolate chips for eyes
    • 4 ice lolly sticks


    1. Cut banana in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters.
    2. Push the ice lolly stick into the less pointy end of the banana, and freeze bananas on a grease proof paper.
    3. After 24 hours, your bananas will be frozen. You can then chop your chocolate up add it to a bowl and melt it by adding it to the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft.
    4. Dip the bananas into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Add the chocolate chips for the eyes before while the chocolate is still wet.
    5. Freeze again for about 2 hours. Eat!
