Guacamole from a Pumpkin. This fabulous idea comes to us from Amee of AmeesSavoryDish.com, and is a low maintenance but high reward kind of snack --great for parties, gathering, and really just a great and funny conversation starter.

Take your pumpkin and carve and clean it out like you would a Jack O’Lantern, but rather than the traditional toothless grin, give it a sickly facial expression. After you carve out your pumpkin, go ahead and set it on your tray for a hilariously spooky centerpiece that serves as the source of your dip! Laugh and enjoy!

Simply grab bananas, cut them in half, and then cut them in half long-ways down the middle. Once split, insert a popsicle stick inside, and then stick ‘em in the freezer. Once frozen through, dip them in melted white chocolate! It’s so simple, we wish we thought of it! Your kids will absolutely love this sweet treat, and you’ll feel great that they are eating fruit instead of candy (even if it does have a thin layer of chocolate surrounding it).

Mini Donut Spiders. These Mini Donut spiders are so easy to make…so easy you could have the kids make them themselves! We found this idea on one of our fave websites, ItsAlwaysAutumn.com, and fell in love with this simple yet brilliant idea –and we think you will too!

Just grab some mini donuts (glazed, non-glazed, chocolate or powdered, up to you), some large pretzel twists, M&M’s, and for some details as well as to hold the M&M’s in place, some chocolate icing and a sandwich bag.

The recipe is pretty easy to figure out once you have taken a peek at the pic of the finished product, but here is where you can find the full instructions. Have fun telling your kids not to play with their food after introducing them to these!

Candy Corn Popsicles. So many times, the Halloween season is made up of heat waves rather than chilly and windy weather. Although we would very much like to say goodbye to summer and give the windy and chilly fall a warm hello, there are ways that we can make the still-hot autumn season into a good time –and these Candy Corn Popsicles are just the way to do it.

These popsicles are the sweetest way to cool down that we have seen in a while, and not only that, its festive and more importantly --healthy!

The popsicles are themed after the quickly devoured and always gone candy corns we crave so much this time of year, and consist of the trademark 3 layers: White, Orange and Yellow.

According to TheGirlInspired.com, the creator of this amazing idea, the White of the popsicle is frozen yogurt, the Orange is frozen orange juice, and the Yellow is frozen pineapple juice. Simply freeze one layer at a time and next thing you know –healthy frozen treats!
