Fun and healthy Halloween treat – Halloween Apple Teeth

Every Halloween we go to my sister-in-law’s house for trick-or-treating.  We live out in the country with the nearest neighbor being 1/2 mile away.  No chance of my kids getting a stash of candy at our place.  Nope, we head into town where we can walk down the sidewalks and go door to door.  It has become a tradition.

We always have dinner at my sister-in-law’s house before we head out to fill our bags... I mean-  the kids’ bags ( I don’t actually eat any of the candy! Ha!)

Our goal is to try to get as much healthy food into our kids before they go out into  sugar land. The kids loved them and they gobbled up this healthy treat!

These mouths may look scary, but at least the ingredients are far from scary…just apples and slivered almonds.  You could also use lemon juice if you make these ahead of time or if your apples brown quickly.

See…I told you these were the perfect snack or appetizer.  Okay, so maybe I didn’t say that, but I was thinking it!

Go ahead…serve up some Halloween Apple Teeth for your little goblins!

    Kathy, these are adorable. The perfect healthy snack when all the kids want to eat is high fructose corn syrup. I grew up in the country with zero trick-or-treaters, but now in Suburbia, I better have at least 10 bags of candy for that 2 hours! Again, those teeth are too cute.

    What a fun idea! I bet kids love those apple teeth! And they are a perfect distraction from all that sugar!

      It’s a brief distraction…but at least it is a distraction.

    My favorite has always been Almond Joy. I should buy ones I don’t like at all so I won’t be tempted to sample!

    Oh these are so cute! My favourite candy used to be Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, but these look a lot healthier! Last year, we didn’t have any trick-or-treaters- how sad…
