2 Healthy Halloween Snacks to Make With Your Kiddos

Fall is in the air and Halloween is nearly here. Healthy and Halloween don’t always go together… but we think they should! Everyone needs a break from the sugar rush, so we’ve teamed up with our friends at Stretch Island Fruit Co. to bring you two simply-made snacks you can whip up for your holiday bash! These recipes are great to make with the kiddos, too.

Stretch Island Fruit Co. is passionate about providing those on the journey to better health with portable, real-fruit choices that delight. We are DOWN with that and we can’t stop snacking on their All-Natural Fruit Strips at B+C. Read on and we’ll show you how to use the tasty strips and a few simple ingredients to make both creepy apple spiders and spooky monster mouths. BOO!

To get everyone we know into the Halloween spirit, we invited our favorite bloggers and friends to Brit HQ to make their very own #spookysnacks!

We had a yummy spread of appetizers and delicious cocktails on hand.

And lots and lots of pie.

Folks had fun DIYing their own porcelain serving trays and making #spookysnacks of their own.

Plus, we had Stretch Island Fruit Co. Fruit Strips and ghoulish goodies for all! Happy Halloween!
