Are you a big fan of Halloween? Trick or treating, funky costumes, pumpkin carving, crisp autumn air- it’s not one of my favourite holidays but I do join and enjoy with you all in the festivity. Especially all of the yummy treats. Who doesn’t love food! So, I have a little treat for you all. In this post, I am going to share three easy-peasy DIY treats that are quite cute to look at but delightful to eat! And if you can ignore the spoonful of peanut butter jam, they are almost healthy as well! Although I do have fun with spooky makeup, I choose to keep Halloween treats cute and fun, rather than scary. Horror is not my cup of tea! The idea of having blood or spooky witches’ fingers on a plate even if it means decorated with food colors or ketchup is something I may consider doing in another life, not this! It’s creepy! Period! I hope you get the chance to make these cuties this year and bring a big smile on the little and not-so-little faces in your family.
1. Apple Animals
To make these adorable chocolate chip banana ghosts or as I call them Boonanas, you need a couple bananas and a chunk of dark and white chocolate melted in microwave. You can also use readymade chocolate chip cookies. They are fast and easy to make.
3. Orane Pumpkins
It’s the easiest and quickest to make of all the three. If you are like me who finds the smell of celery vile, then use cucumber.
Ingredients to make Boonanas and orange pumpkins: A couple oranges, bananas, celery sticks, small chunk of dark and white chocolate each
Top tip: If your bananas topple over, and a little bit of peanut butter still doesn’t hold them in place, just trim them a little shorter until they’re really sturdy.
The best thing about these fruity snacks is that they can be eaten all year long. What kid wouldn’t want a scary apple creature after school? True, the Boonanas and the Orange Pumpkins are the easiest to make and need as little ingredients as possible but the apple animals are my favourite. Which is yours?

I’ve got a tragic face for Halloween up my sleeve, scroll down!
After some fun treats and a spooky look, I also have gone down the traditional path and carved a pumpkin for the first time. Whether you’re carving, decorating, or using this classic autumn gourd for Halloween inspiration, my pumpkin carving idea will excite you all season and let me assure you it’s the easiest!
The old triangle-eyed pumpkin has its charm. Let’s do it together!
Happy Halloween Weekend!
