Trick or Treat! This weekend my family is hosting a Toddler Halloween Party full of children with endless energy. The little ghosts and goblins will be searching for snacks to fuel up their metabolism. I gathered 6 healthy Halloween snacks that are yummy and interesting enough to attract the scariest vampire, fastest ninja, and beautiful princess.
Monster Fruit Salad
Simply carve a monster (just as you would a pumpkin) and remove all of the fruit, to display inside and on a serving tray. Add a variety of fruit options. Watermelon, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, apples, anything and everything.
You can use two veggies or get a bit creative with your vegetable jack-o-lantern, you need carrots and olives. The additional veggies can decorate your platter.
- Spiders on a log
- Monster Cheese
- Spiders on a Log
- Trail Mix
- Spider Deviled Egg

One of my favorite appetizers, which could be a meal, is the Olive Garden grilled chicken flatbread. It’s so delicious and I’ve figured out an easy copy-cat recipe! There’s not too much to it, you can purchase the ingredients at your local grocery store and head home to make a warm and yummy meal in less than 40 minutes.
Ingredients you will need:
- 2 Chicken breast – grilled & sliced or diced
- 1 Jar of alfredo sauce
- Pillsbury Pizza Crust
- Shredded mozzarella cheese 2 cups (more or less)
- Grilled or baked bell peppers – sliced
- Chopped Basil Leaf
- Optional: lemon pepper seasoning
Preheat oven to 450*
- Bake your pillsbury pizza crust according to the packaging
- Grill Chicken with Lemon Pepper Seasoning
- Once pizza crust & chicken is freshly off the grill
- Apply alfredo sauce to pizza crust
- Mix chicken with alfredo sauce, then apply as 1st layer to the crust
- Toss a few slices of grilled/baked red peppers
- Add freshly chopped basil leaves
- Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Place into over until cheese is melted
This is such a delicious appetizer, you’ll want to make this easy Olive Garden copy cat recipe at home. The kids will love this! Perfect enough to be filling for a light lunch, entertainment snack, there won’t be a crumb left!
Sonny (my 4-year-old) and I decided to make cute swirly monster cupcakes out of a Funfetti cake box. We usually make our own homemade recipe but he was so eager to buy the box at our local supermarket, so we decided, why not?
Less mess & more memories.
The one thing I love about these box cake mixes, they’re so easy a toddler can make them! A few cool things I found to make his cupcake experience a little easier were the:
Baking Cooling Rack
Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl with Rubber Bottom
We just purchased a new mixing bowl that also has a rubber bottom to prevent spilling. Toddlers can be clumsy by accident and this new bowl has been helping us keep the counter with less of a mess.
