Healthy Halloween Candy Apples
Halloween candy apples may be a popular seasonal treat, but that certainly doesn’t make them healthy. All that red candied sugar covering a 95-calorie green apple turns what started as a healthy fruit into a 300-calorie liability. Not good for your weight or your teeth!
But rather than covering the whole apple in some sugary goop, why not choose a healthier option for your candy apple treats? Simply drizzle apple slices with a caramel sauce instead – a healthier version than red sugar, and less of it too.
Green Grape Mop Heads
That same caramel can be warmed up and used as a dip for green grapes. Dip the tips of skewered grapes into the caramel and sprinkle with chopped nuts or seeds. Set on parchment paper till the caramel cools.
Chopped Apple Salad
A quick and healthy snack that can be enjoyed as a dessert or for breakfast. Simply chop some green apples, add your favorite nuts, bits of pretzels, and drizzle caramel on top.
Caramel Pecan Baked Apples
Turn everyday baked apples into simple Halloween treats by simply baking apples sprinkled with cinnamon, and then adding chopped pecans and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Makes a healthy dessert, or enjoy any time you feel peckish.
