Here are some fun treats that your kids will like and don't contain as much sugar and fats as most Holloween snacks do.

Salty Bones - click here to see the original recipe. Taken from familyfun.go.com

Of course everyone will love dipping their bones in Coagulated Blood (marinara sauce), Slimy Goo (honey mustard) or with a cup of Blood Soup (tomato soup)

  1. Unroll a tube of refrigerated breadstick dough and separate the rectangular pieces.
  2. Working with one piece at a time, stretch the dough to lengthen it a bit and then use kitchen scissors or a knife to cut a 11/2-inch slit in the center of each end.
  3. Roll or shape the resulting four flaps of dough into knobs that look like the ends of a bone.
  4. Place the dough bones on an ungreased baking sheet, spacing them a few inches apart, and sprinkle on a little coarse salt. Bake the bones until they are light golden brown, about 12 minutes.


Strawberry Ghosts - click here to see the original recipe from Food and Beverage Recipes.

These little ghosts are sooo CUTE!

  • 30 fresh strawberries
  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate and shortening at 50% power; stir until smooth. Stir in extract.
  • Dip strawberries in chocolate mixture; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, allowing excess chocolate to form the ghosts' tails. Immediately press chocolate chips into coating for eyes. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt remaining chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Dip a toothpick into melted chocolate and draw a mouth on each face. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
