Halloween is not to far away. It is one of our favorite holidays and we love hosting friends for gatherings and parties. This year during our Halloween party we want to serve treats that are not only yummy but also healthy.
Smart & Final is your Halloween headquarters for everyone, whether it's for candies or healthy options. I decided to take a tour around the store and see what healthy options I was able to find to offer the kids during our next Halloween party.
I think that you can serve healthy and delicious treats during a Halloween party. Kids are expecting to find candy and chips, so there is nothing wrong with have a few of those available. You know you can find plenty of those at great prices at Smart & Final.
So what else can you serve that kids are going to like? Think fruits, cheeses, yogurt, healthy crackers, and even hummus.
How about some peanut butter & Jelly bites? Look at all the options available at Smart & Final below
Healthy Halloween Monster Bites

Makes 4 "bites"
$1.50 per recipe when purchased at Smart & Final
Make the “mouths”: Cut a sliver out of the center of each quartered apple to open up the “mouth.” Fill the inside of each “mouth” with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. (As not to waste food, save the center apple slices for a snack later).
Make the “teeth” and “tongues”: Push slivered almonds into the apple around the “mouth” to make the “teeth” and place a sliced strawberry on the bottom of each “mouth” to make the “tongues.”
Make the “eyes”: Slice off a tiny bit of the end of each marshmallow to make one side sticky; press the sticky side of two marshmallows on the top of each “mouth” to make two “eyes.” Press a chocolate chip into each marshmallow, flat side outward, to make the center of each “eye.”
Enjoy immediately, or store in the refrigerator for an hour or two before serving.
