Kids get so excited for Halloween, don’t they?!?! The costumes. The decorations. THE CANDY. It is a ton of fun, but the amount of sugar can give a parent anxiety. Plus, when you have a child that has a food sensitivity dealing with school parties can be a challenge since they can’t have what’s provided, but you don’t want them to feel left out.
Noah and I had a blast making chocolate covered popcorn and chocolate pudding graveyard cups. These are easy, healthy, and delicious treats that are great for kids parties and replace some of the more typical sugary options.
- Popcorn cooked in coconut oil and sea salt
- Stevia sweetened chocolate (i.e. Lily’s chocolate chips)
- Halloween themed treat bags
- Spread popcorn on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Boil water in a pot on the stove. Place a heat safe bowl over the water.
- Dump the chocolate chips in the bowl, and stir until melted.
- Take the chocolate chips off the heat.
- Drizzle using a spoon or form over the popcorn.
- Set the baking sheet in the refrigerator so the chocolate can harden.
- Fill the treat bags with popcorn, and close with twist ties.
