Halloween Snack Ideas

Halloween is only three days away and you need to come up with some spooky snack ideas for the little monsters in the house or the goblins that are coming over to visit. If you are crunched for time or don’t have any idea what to make, don’t get your bandages in a wad. I have three simple ideas your can do that are not only delicious but healthy too!

Chocolate dipped pretzels are always my quick “go to” treat to hand out to the kids. They are easy to make and have several possibilities for any occasion. 
They started out as ghost but then my daughter added more detail and they became mummies. 

-Large Pretzel Rods
-Chocolate Bark.
Melt the chocolate in a glass microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until melted and smooth.
Dip pretzels into the chocolate and place on wax paper until dried.
Use melted dark chocolate or morsels for the eyes.

My daughter wanted to make these when she came over. While I dipped pretzels, she made apple false teeth.
She giggled every time she completed one. Each one came out different and had its own personality. We had some good laughs with these and had fun eating them. They were delicious too!

-Red Apples
-Peanut Butter
-Mini Marshmallows 
Slice apples into wedges and remove any core.
Spread each wedge with peanut butter.
Line one wedge with mini marshmallows and place another wedge on top.

Clio snacks are chocolate covered Greek yogurt bars that come in a variety of flavors. They now come in “mini” size and are the perfect treat to hand out at parties or showers. They can be left out at room temperature for four hours if they have to. They are also good frozen. They are healthy and taste just like little cheese cakes. So you will love these even if you are not a yogurt fan. 

-Clio Snack Minis
-White Chocolate Bark (they are already covered in dark chocolate).
Melt the chocolate in a glass microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until melted and smooth.
Dip each bar into the chocolate and place on wax paper until dried.
Use melted dark chocolate or morsels for the eyes.
Hint: Use food coloring to color the melted white chocolate to make different color monsters and decorate to your preference.

Are you trick or treating this Halloween or having a Halloween party?
We do not usually hand out candy because of where we are located.
I will usually make little treats like this or small bags of candy to hand out to the kids close by or family.


Cliosnacks can be found in the yogurt section at most Walmarts, Targets and other select stores. 
You can find more flavors and less sugar options on their website at

Black Friday

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. I said I wouldn’t do it, but I did it. I over ate yesterday and woke up to a splitting headache and puffy eyes. I am regretting  the loads of desserts I ate tasted all day long. I am simply not used to eating one BIG meal, much less two! But I am thankful.

My daughter came home to stay a few days with us. I kissed my husband and told him I’d see him again in a few days. haha. That is our joke when she comes over because once she hits the door, the girl talk starts. We jabber the whole time about friends, fashion, recipes and work. He gets put on the back burner while I give all my attention to her most of the time. 

She came in bringing goodies from Trader Joe's. We do not have a TraderJoes store in my town, so its always a treat when she brings the goodies. 
We stayed up late Thanksgiving Eve and decorated the Christmas tree and started the cooking for Thanksgiving. 

Today is the day that everyone rushes out before the sun comes up to grab a great black Friday deal. This is something I have never had any intentions to do. I would rather pay ten dollars more for an item than to get into that mess. Better yet, There are black Friday special going on all over the internet too. I will probably be in cyber world all day. 

Below are a couple black Friday sales going on today that I just so happen to be partnered with. I am happy to have the opportunities to share good things from honest companies.

OK there is no black Friday sale for these delicious yogurt bars but you can find them at most Walmarts and Harris Teeter stores. They are my new favorite snack. They absolutely taste like and have the texture of little cheese cakes dipped in chocolate. New flavors and ideas are in the works for the new year. You can find them on the Yogurt isles and they are only a dollar each! You will fall in love with them.
