Spooky snacks that are scary-delicious

It's that time of year when the pace of life quickens. We're alway dashing off to work or school or after-school activities. But hunger waits for no one, so why not have some fun with it? These recipes are so inventive, no one will even notice how healthy they are!

You can ony toss a granola bar at your kid so many times before they get the groans. Variety is the spice of life, so let's talk scary spice!

Spooky Avocado Toast 

You'll need:

  • Sliced red pepper


  • Toast the bread
  • Open and scoop out avocado. Smash with lemon and dash of salt in a small bowl

While these recipes do require a bit of prep, there is zero cooking involved. Making these snacks is a lot more realistic than what you see in films. I mean, what family actually has time for eggs, toast and fresh-squeezed orange juice in the morning? And the dads in these movies sipping coffee and going through the paper? Before work?
