Candy corn jello is another great Halloween treat to toast to. You can make it for the children, or for your adult friends with added alternatives. Jell-O is a great healthy alternative. You’ll need:

  • 1 orange Jell-O mix

  • 8 oz. of Cool Whip

  • Boiling water

  • Shot glasses

  • Candy corn

Any shot glass or cup will do, the tallest is the best. Follow the instructions on the lemon Jell-O mix. Let it cool. Pour this cooled mixture ⅓ of the way in your glasses. Then put the glasses in the fridge to set. As soon as it’s set, begin the orange Jell-O mix. When it cools, fill the glasses ⅓ of the way. Repeat the process and put in the fridge to set. Once the orange Jell-O finishes setting, you may add your cool whip topping and a candy corn for garnish.

If you’re hosting a party or bringing a tray, you may have boring guac. This terrifying healthy treat will put the Halloween fun back into your food. You will need:

  • A guacamole recipe

  • An extra avocado to put aside

  • Lemon juice

  • Small spearing or carving knife

This treat requires carving skills so use caution. Start by making your guacamole. There are so many ways to do it, be sure to add lemon juice to the mix to keep from browning. Once your guacamole is set in place, it is time to carve your avocado. You will be carving a skeleton face, or any shape you are willing to try. Carve out two circles for the eyes and a triangle for the nose to make it simple. For the teeth, as shown, you will want to cut the skin only, removing it in a rectangle shape; then making teeth impressions with your knife. Put some lemon juice on the carvings to keep from looking like a terrifying mess. Then place your carved avocado on top or aside of your guacamole treat.
