Halloween Fruit Snacks


If you are concerned that your kids eat too many sweets during Halloween, try these non-candy snacks. Dried and fresh fruit like apricots, mangoes, and grapes are so much more appealing when they look at you!

12 servings


  • 4 ounces dried apricots

  • 4 ounces dried peaches

  • ½ pound seedless green grapes, halved

  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

  • 1 teaspoon water, or as needed

  • ¼ cup small candy eyeballs


  1. Arrange apricots and peaches on a platter. Skewer a few grapes on a toothpick vertically and the last one horizontally (for the head).

  2. Mix confectioners' sugar with water to make a thin, slightly sticky icing. Use icing to glue 2 candy eyeballs on each piece of fruit and on the horizontal "head" of the grape caterpillar.

Cook's Note:

Dried mangoes are great as well. You can even cut them into pumpkin shapes.
