Easy Halloween After-School Snacks

Its the last week of October, and Halloween is nearly here! Be sure to spend the rest of this week getting in the spirit of things with a few themed snacks! These are quick and easy for after school, and can even be added to a snack tray to get you ready for walking around the neighborhood, gathering a few tricks and treats.

It is as easy as adding a little bit of “spook” to something you’d usually eat after school and before homework, or re-thinking our favorite Halloween candy layers in tasty parfaits. Read on to see Captain Create’s easy and tasty Halloween After-School Snacks!

Cheese and Crackers

Top whole wheat crackers with a slice of cheese.  Use fall or Halloween themed cookie cutters for festive and fun shapes.  I used some cupcake sprinkles to make jack-o-lantern faces.


Who doesn’t love a PB&J?  Use whole wheat bread and a fruit spread with limited sugar.  Use fall or Halloween themed cookie cutters to add a festive touch.

Candy Corn Fruit Cup

Pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, and a dollop of whipped cream make a healthy candy corn look-a-like with just enough sweetness.

Spooky Teeth

Use apple, peanut butter, and marshmallows to make this spooky snack.  Core and cut an apple into slices.  Spread peanut butter on an apple slice.  Place marshmallows on top of the peanut butter.  Spread peanut butter on another apple slice and place it on top of the marshmallows.
