If you want to see something really scary this Halloween, just check out the nutrition information on your (or your kiddos’) candy or favorite treats. This is why I always say homemade is the best made. Now, I am not telling you to crack the code on making Snickers or Twix candy bars, but rather creating healthy Halloween treats for your crew to nosh on before heading out Trick or Treating to save them (and you) from a massive sugar rush from overindulging on their loot.

There is a little something for everyone here, whether you like sweet or savory, and of course, I’ve included a delicious brew, which can be served with or without alcohol. Enjoy!

Tasty Halloween Snacks

6. Spider Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs, hardboiled
  • ½ cup avocado mayo
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup relish
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • Black olives
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Once you have hardboiled your eggs, let them chill out in the refrigerator for roughly 3 – 4 hours. Then gently peel and slice them lengthwise, reserving the yolks in a separate bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to yolks and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Distribute the yolk mixture evenly among the open section of each hollow egg.
  4. Slice black olives lengthwise for the spider body, then into 4 smaller slices for the legs.
  5. Enjoy!

Chef Notes: You could also omit the mayo and use Greek yogurt, and you can use a sweet or kosher relish, depending on your taste preference. I have been known to switch it up and add in chopped celery, but I think for this, the relish adds plenty of crunch. But don’t—whatever you do—omit the ACV. That is the secret weapon to these healthy Halloween treats!
