Halloween Snack Treat Ideas Kids Can Make Themselves
I love having a family tradition around the holiday season. We go out and pick up some treats for our neighbors and friends while we enjoy each others’ company. This year, my husband and I wanted to make sure we had something special for our children, too. They’re both young adults now, but they still love candy just as much as they did when they were little. So, I came up with some easy Halloween recipes that they could prepare themselves.
Panko Carrot Cheddar Patties
These patties are perfect for snacks in the car, lunch boxes, or even school lunches. They are easy to make and fun for kids. You don’t need to use a food processor to make them. Just chop up carrots into small pieces and mix it with shredded cheese. Then roll it into balls and coat them with flour. Bake them and you have delicious healthy snacks for kids.
- 2 medium-sized carrots
- ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 egg white
If you are short of time to go shopping, use the services of the delivery company. It will save you from all those hassles. Opt for healthy and organic options delivered right at your doorstep. The best part about this service is that you do not have to worry about the quality of the product since the delivery companies ensure that the products reach their destination safely.
English Muffin “Donuts”
This recipe is great for kids. They will enjoy making it because there’s no baking involved, just cutting up some dough and frying it. You can use any flavor you want; we used chocolate sprinkles here. And don’t worry about having to buy special ingredients — most grocery stores carry both English muffins and powdered sugar.
Donut holes are made from English muffins. To make them, simply cut out the middle of each muffin and scoop out the insides. Then dip the hole into powdered sugar.
These snack ideas are perfect for parties or picnic lunches. Just pack them individually in plastic bags and keep them in the fridge.
Aussie Granola Bites
Kids love snacks. And what better way to give them something tasty to eat than with granola bites? These wholesome treats are easy to make and require no special equipment. You just need some basic kitchen tools such as a food processor and baking tray.
The best thing about making your own granola bites is that you can control exactly how much sugar and salt they contain. Plus, there is nothing worse than buying unhealthy snacks for children. So why not try making your own granola balls, which taste delicious and are full of nutrients?
- 200g rolled oats
- 50g unsalted butter
- 75g brown sugar
- 2 tbsp honey
Frozen Banana Granola Pops
These healthy granola pops are great for kids because they use frozen bananas. They are easy to make and taste delicious. You don’t even need to bake them; you just heat them up in the microwave.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- ¼ cup coconut flakes
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Chocolate Chip, PB & Banana Sandwiches
Graham Crackers make great sandwiches. They’re easy to put together and even easier to eat. With just four ingredients, you’ll have a delicious treat ready in no time.
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 bananas
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter and sugar. Mix well.
- Cut each banana into 4 pieces lengthwise. Place one piece of banana on the bottom half of each graham cracker. Top with about 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Repeat the process with remaining bananas and graham crackers.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Rise and Shine Parfait
The rise of snack foods geared towards young children is nothing new. Parents know that it’s important to provide healthy snacks for their kids, especially during the summer months when they spend more time outside playing. However, there are many parents who struggle to find nutritious options for their little ones. One brand that aims to help solve this problem is Rise & Shine. Their mission is to offer delicious, easy-to-eat parfaits that appeal to kids of all ages.
Rise & Shine offers a wide range of parfaits, including fruit, yogurt, granola, cereal, chocolate chip, and cookie varieties. They are designed to be portable and convenient, making them great for those busy days where you don’t want to stop what you’re doing to make lunch. Plus, each package includes a recipe card that allows parents to customize their child’s meal according to their tastes.
Hasselback Tomato Clubs
These days, it seems like everyone wants to make a homemade pizza. But what do you do if you don’t want to spend hours kneading dough and rolling out pizza crust? You could always buy one. But why settle for just one when you can make dozens of pizzas in minutes? With Hasselback tomato clubs, you can enjoy the taste of pizza without having to worry about making it yourself.
Hasselback tomatoes are small, round tomatoes that look like little pizza pies. They’re often used in salads because they hold up well under acidic ingredients like vinegar, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar. The secret to making delicious pizza slices lies in the way you cut them. Instead of slicing them into rounds, slice them lengthwise. Then, use a knife to carefully shave off thin layers of the skin from each side of the tomato. Once you’ve done that, place the sliced tomatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Afterward, flip the slices over and continue cooking for another 5 to 7 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, let them cool slightly and serve.
The best part about this method is that you can customize the toppings to suit your tastes. Just add whatever you’d like to your baked tomatoes—from pepperoni to bacon bits to cheese—and pop ’em in the oven. If you’re looking for a healthier option, try adding some basil leaves or even spinach to your tomato club.
If you’re still worried about how long it takes to make this recipe, remember that there’s no need to preheat the oven. Simply put the prepared tomatoes in the fridge overnight, and you’ll wake up to perfectly cooked slices of pizza.
There are so many easy snacks that kids love. Whether it’s something as simple as popcorn or something more elaborate like these Halloween snack treats ideas, we hope you have fun trying new things. We also hope that you feel inspired to create your own unique snack ideas.
