Freakishly Good Halloween Treats

3 minute read

With Halloween on the horizon and the silly season just around the corner, it’s the time of year when sweet treats shine. So, what’s the secret to enjoying sweet indulgence without sparking a sugar high?  

Discover the smart approach to sweet satisfaction with freakishly good healthy treats that are fun to make.  

Enjoy fierce and funny fruit

It’s amazing what you can do with googly eyes. Grab a piping bag and a smidgen of melted chocolate, and get set to pipe monstrous facial features onto any fruit you choose – apples, bananas, kiwifruit and even sweet peppers are ideal. You can take it to the next level and create fruit ghosts – simply dip apple slices or strawberries in white chocolate and, when the white chocolate is set, pipe on milk chocolate dots for eyes and big ovals for screaming mouths. 

Make monster shakes 

Surprise and delight with a delicious green smoothie. Blend together: 1 cup of spinach or kale, ½ cup of frozen blueberries, 1 banana, 2 cups of almond milk or water, and a tablespoon of maple syrup for sweetness. Add in a spoonful of peanut butter if you wish. You can also bump up the nutritional power with a teaspoon of spirulina, chia seeds or goji berries for extra punch. 

Go dip mad 

We all know that chocolate-dipped fruit is hard to beat, but why not get creative by delving into all sorts of different dips. Try whipped ricotta with apple wedges, dip banana into honey yogurt spiced with cinnamon, or dip your favorite fruit into a mix of whipped cream and lemon curd. 

Get peculiar with popcorn 

A simple bowl of popcorn can be jazzed up for any ghoulish get-together. It’s as easy as adding a small splash of green (or red) natural food colouring, and if you have any freaky sweets (like jelly snakes) you can sprinkle them into the bowl too. 

Whatever you do focus on fruit – it’s nature’s ultimate sweet treat 

Opting for a fruit-based sugar hit is always the best bet. Fruit is naturally rich in fructose, which is part of a balanced diet, and each piece of fruit comes packed with additional nutrients such as vitamins and fibre.  

Choose Rockit™ apples and you can twist, pop and crunch for a delicious sweet hit straight out of the tube. (And then once you’ve bitten through all the apples, you can get creative with the empty tube and use it to make a fun festive decoration.)
