Children’s easy Halloween snacks to make at home 2021
Children’s easy Halloween snacks. Halloween was made for snacking!
But candy isn’t the only thing you can munch and crunch on during October 31 (although you definitely should). There are plenty of treats that are easy to bring to any Halloween party or create if you’re throwing your own. The key to a good Halloween snack is making sure it’s on theme and on the lighter side, especially if you’re also planning a dinner menu.
- Large spinach wraps
- Favorite sandwich filling
- Sliced Cheddar cheese and/or nori (seaweed wraps), for hair and mouth
- Sliced pimiento-stuffed olives, for eyes
- Whole olives, for bolts
- Cornichon pickles, whole for bolts, halved for eyebrows and nose
Fill each wrap with desired sandwich filling and roll up like a burrito. Cut cheese slices and/or nori in half and cut triangle shapes for hair. Place on 1 half of wrap. Cut remaining half into long strips for mouth. Cut smallest cornichons in half lengthwise for eyebrows. Cut a thin slice for nose. Place olive slices for eyes. Use toothpicks to secure 2 olives or cornichons to sides of wrap for Frankenstein’s bolts.
