Easy Meal Planning for Halloween!

When I was growing up, I remember a few occasions when my mom would do something “special” in the way of food, depending on what the occasion was…well, Halloween is perfect for it!


And here’s what I’m doing this year! Just click the images to go to the original recipes and posters!!!


Chocolate Donut Spider Webs from Inside BruCrew Life, though I am cheating and just making the webs with a bag of store-bought minis and icing! Cute, no?

Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits from FamilyFreshMeals.com…and if you’re counting Weight Watchers Points Plus, that looks like 1 point for the fat-free Reddi-Whip!  😉


None of these are any special recipes, just ideas I’ve collected for the kid’s packed school lunches…

  • Banana halves with chocolate chip eyes
  • String cheese with drawn on faces
  • Orange with pumpkin face drawn on
  • Orange cup with pumpkin face drawn on
  • Apple slices with peanut butter and marshmallow “teeth”
  • Cut-out sandwich (bat, pumpkin, etc.)
  • Candy Corn (small, individual packages)


Mummy Wrapped Hot Dogs from Fabulously Frugal (I’ll be using reduced fat crescent rolls and turkey sausage…mmmmm!!!!)

Cut Out Apple Slices from Jewels Of A Child – serve with caramel dip or Pumpkin Fluff!

Jello Worms from cpacker1 at Instructables:

Boo Cups from Safeway or from A Turtle’s Life For Me…


Zombie Eyeballs from eighteen25!

Are you doing anything special for your kiddos?  If so, what?
