Coming up with healthy Halloween treats is no easy feat! I always want to create festive dishes that say spooky all over them, just without having to add tons of food dye in the process — therein lies the big time challenge.
I’m also attempting in my own little way this year to make recipes that have at least an itty bitty amount of nutrition in them, so my kids aren’t getting the energy to trick or treat all night from candy alone.
These Halloween Fingers are creepy, spooky and, yes I admit it, kinda gross looking, but given evening’s theme they’re also pretty darn cool. They’re essentially an inventive way to serve carrots and cheese. You can scatter the fingers alongside other entrees, make a plate of them for everyone to grab from, or even fill a bowl with Black Bean Hummus and plant the fingers inside it to give the illusion of a hand clawing its way out of the ground. Sounds fun right?
Thank goodness Halloween is only once a year. 😉
