3 Festive Halloween Recipes and Treats
Here at Mogo, Halloween is a big tradition of ours. We love all things spooky and festive about Halloween traditions. This year, we decided to create a blog full of fun Halloween meals for your kids, or even yourself! They are super easy to make and add a little fun to everyday meals. We also added a fun brownie idea for a spooky treat, or Halloween party dish!
We love sharing healthy, delicious recipes, but it is important to remember balance in your everyday eating. It is TOTALLY okay to enjoy a sweet treat or two throughout holidays and events!
Have a Happy Halloween!
Recipe Number 1: Pumpkin Spice Graveyard Oatmeal
For this recipe, we decided to take a spin off regular morning oatmeal. Instead, we made overnight oats with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and banana to make a creamy fall breakfast!
What you’ll need:
A mason jar
1 Cup of oats
2 cups of your milk of choice
1 TBSP of Cinnamon
½ TBSP of Pumpkin pie spice
1 TBSP Chia Seeds
Vanilla extract (optional)
Festive Sprinkles or pumpkin candies!
Simply add all the ingredients to your mason jar, shake, and leave in the fridge overnight. The fun comes in the assembly.
For our oatmeal display, we cut our banana in half, and added chocolate chips as eyes and melted chocolate chips as mouths to make cute banana ghosts. We then sprinkled pecans and chocolate chips over the oats for a good crunch! Using apples, we cut out jack-o-lantern mouths and placed them in the bowl.
This recipe is super simple and easy to create with ingredients in your own kitchen! It is fun to be creative when making the Halloween characters.
Recipe 2: Spooky Halloween Lunch
This section gives a few ideas of how to add a little spooky fun to your kids lunches.
Cut their sandwiches into jack-o-lanterns, skulls, or ghosts.
Use food coloring to dye mayo orange or red!
Peel faces out of oranges.
Add in our mummy brownies!
Recipe 3: Yummy Mummy Brownies
These brownies will add such a fun touch to any Halloween meal or party! They take minutes to make and are so fun to eat.
You can use any brownie recipe that you'd like, but we will attach the one we used at the bottom! Usually we would create a healthy alternative for brownies to our blog, but for Halloween, we decided to make traditional “ooey gooey” brownies.
For this recipe, simply make any chocolate brownie that you'd like.
Melt 1 cup of white chocolate chips, and place drops of melted chocolate on tinfoil to keep in the freezer.
Drizzle the rest of the melted chocolate over the brownies and let it harden.
After it has hardened, place the chocolate “eyes” from the freezer onto the brownies, and put regular chocolate chips in the middle for eyeballs.
Add sprinkles. Chocolate drizzle, anything you want! These are for sure to be a hit with both kids and adults at any Halloween get together!
Remember to have a SWEET and SPOOKY Halloween!!
