Spooky Spider Halloween Hummus Recipe

Spooky Spider Halloween Hummus

Halloween is one of those holidays ya love to hate. It is all too easy to fall into the trap of sugary sweet treat overload, especially the days following the holiday when there is an abundance of candy everywhere you turn (and this is even if you don’t have kids).

I know for me personally, I generally take my mom-tax from the trick or treating loot, then I allow the kiddos to pick a few pieces of their favorite treats, then away it goes. Sometimes we donate the leftover candy to the troops, and other times we have tucked it away for a special reward. But quite honestly, I would prefer it not be around because out of sight, out of mind is the best practice for maintaining my healthy weight and blood sugar.

When tasked with creating a healthy Halloween treat, I pondered over something sweet but then opted for something savory. Who says something savory can’t be a “treat,” right? I had previously put together a few Halloween treats here, here, and here, which have quickly become fan favorites, so hopefully, this one tickles your taste buds just as much!
