My mom recently sent me an article that showcased some adorable Halloween treats, and I chose these two. Thanks Mom! They were a lot of fun to make and of course fun to eat. If you are looking for a healthier snack for Halloween parties or want something fun to make with your kids, these were a hit. They are easy to assemble and make cute and clever treats for your favorite little ghouls.
mozzarella string cheese sticks
mini pretzel sticks
Cut each cheese stick in half. Carefully slice 1 end of each piece into thin strips with a paring knife, like broom bristles. On the top of the uncut half, use the tip of the knife or a skewer to make a small indentation. Carefully twist a pretzel stick into the indentation to create a broomstick. Tie a length of chive into a knot near the top of the cheese.
creamy peanut butter
red jam, optional (I used raspberry jam)
Slice an apple into wedges (thinner is better than thicker). Working in pairs, spread peanut butter on one side of each wedge. Arrange a row of marshmallows on top of the peanut butter like teeth. Add 2 almond slivers like vampire fangs. Top with the other apple wedge, nut butter side down. For an extra-spooky twist, coat the tips of the “fangs” with red jam using the tip of a knife.
