Healthy Halloween Treats

I love Halloween, all holidays really!  With kids I think I love the lead up to Halloween the best; decorating, reading Halloween stories, watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, and of course Halloween treats!  In that vein I wanted to make some fun and spooky treats that were also healthy.  Here are the 3 favorite that we discovered:

Vampire Apples
Sliced Apples (reddish look especially realistic)
Slivered Almonds

Slice your apples
Cut out a "mouth" in the center
Make fangs with the slivered Almonds

Carrot Eyeballs
Sliced Carrots
Cream Cheese
Raisins (or black olives)
Slice your carrots (about 1/4 of an inch)
Spread cream cheese on the carrots
Add the raisins or olives for the pupil
Also fun to combine the two together!
Cracker Spiders

Large round crackers
Pretzel Sticks
Sun/Peanut/Almond Butter
Spread the Peanut Butter on the cracker
Add 8 pretzel stick "legs" and 2 raisin "eyes
