A fun and festive collection of creative Halloween recipes to celebrate this treat filled spooky holiday. Instead of the traditional sugar-laden treats, hand out one of the healthier alternatives Halloween night.
Spare Change - Convert the money you would have spent on candy into nickels or dimes. Pile them in a bowl and let the children scoop them up with a small spoon.
Toys - Small plastic figurines, erasers, stickers, pencils, and other non-edible items are always welcomed by the younger crowd. Of course, be alert to items that could pose a choking danger to very little children.
Healthier Sweets - This could include sugarless bubblegum made with natural flavorings, or individually wrapped cookies and candies sweetened with fruit juice (available at health food stores).
Hundred calorie snack packs , readily available in many things ... cookies, snacks, etc. Just best to avoid anything refrigerated for obvious reasons. Those little cheese and cracker snacks that do not require being kept cool are a good idea, though.
Many of the recipes use minimal ingredients but create fun Halloween treats. Also note, caster sugar is used in many of the treats. Caster sugar is also known as superfine sugar. This sugar melts and gets incorporated into things much more quickly because it's so fine. It isn't recommended you replace the caster sugar with regular, as the results won't be as good.
