Hungry for Halloween!

24 10 2008

It’s almost time for Halloween and we thought we would post some yummy Halloween-themed snack ideas! Instead of the normal sweet snacks like Halloween cupcakes and candy though, these treats are healthy for you!

Our first snack, from Little Nummies, is Witch Hats made out of crescent rolls! Instead of rolling up your dough completely to make regular crescent rolls, roll it half-way and then curl the end of your dough to make the top of a witch hat. Super easy and tasty!

Our second snack, from Munchkins and Mayhem, is Skeleton Dip! All you need are some assorted vegetables and your favorite veggie dip from the grocery store. Then, arrange the vegetables to create the skeleton’s body. The bowl of dip is perfect for the skeleton’s head!

Our third snack, from Where the Sidewalk Ends, is Mummy Pizza! You will need English muffins, pizza sauce, cheese slices, and olives. After putting sauce on the English muffins, place olives where the eyes will be and then surround your olives with cheese slices. Heat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then bake your pizzas for about 10 minutes!


To get in the Halloween spirit, come to the Austin Children’s Museum’s 2008 Bats and Cats Ball this Sunday, October 26th! A costume parade will begin at 5PM at the City Hall Plaza followed by the official ball at the Austin Children’s Museum from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  Go here to RSVP!
