Frightening Fruit Bats

Your kitchen is about to turn into a spooky bat cave. And yours is the hand that will summon these Frightening Fruit Bats into culinary existence. These healthy Halloween treats require just a few ingredients: medjool dates, strawberries, and edible candy googly eyes.

Gather Your Frightening Fruit Bat Ingredients

Start by selecting your medjool dates; these will serve as the bodies for the bats. Make sure they’re nice and ripe; the squishier, the better! For bat wings, you’ll need some fresh strawberries. Lastly, grab some edible candy googly eyes from a baking supplies shop or online.

Prepare Your Bat Bodies with Berries

Once your bat requirements are assembled, split open the dates – these are going to be your bat bodies! Be careful not to tear them apart; you want them to resemble little brown bats. For the wings, slice your strawberries into thin sections. Each strawberry can become two bat wings.

Assemble, Serve and Enjoy Your Frightening Fruit Bats

Finally, assemble your dates and strawberries into a bat shape, and stick those googly eyes on. Voilá! You have made a swarm of Frightening Fruit Bats. Time to serve them up and watch as they quickly disappear into the night… or rather, the mouths of your Halloween guests.

Ghoulish Ghost Bananas

Let’s create some Ghoulish Ghost Bananas next, a fun and healthy treat that will have the kids howling with delight.

Steps to Gather Your Ghostly Necessities

All you need are some bananas, dark chocolate chips, and edible candy googly eyes. As always, make sure the bananas are ripe – you don’t want any unripe ghosts haunting your Halloween party!

Creating Your Ghoulish Banana Figures

Peel the bananas and then cut them in half. Each half is going to become a spooky ghost. For the ghostly eyes and mouth, use the dark chocolate chips. Just press them into the banana gently; they should stick just fine.

Final Touches and Serving Your Ghost Bananas

There you have it! They’re as adorable as they are ghoulish. Serve your Ghoulish Ghost Bananas on a platter and watch them disappear like… well, like ghosts.

Creepy Crawly Crudité

Vegetables can be fun and spooky too! With this dish, you’ll encourage your little monsters to eat their veggies and scare them a little in the process.

Choosing Your Creepy Veggies

A good Creepy Crawly Crudité platter needs a variety of veggies. Think sliced cucumbers, baby tomatoes, bell peppers, celery sticks, and baby carrots. The more colorful the better!

Slice and Decorate Your Veggie Selection

Prepare your vegetables by washing them well and slicing them into bite-sized pieces. Arrange them on a plate to look like a creepy crawler, such as a spider or a centipede. Use your imagination!

Gasping Guacamole: The Perfect Partner for Your Creepy Crudité
