11 Fruit Based Halloween Treats

This collection of eleven fruit based Halloween treats is sure to provide something that you can serve to your family to help them to eat more fruit. Making a point to find Halloween treats that are made with fruit may seem like a strange idea, but there has to be some sort of balance, right? I mean, the kids can’t live on candy. Mine would be willing to give it a try, through. In the interest of encouraging the consumption of more fruit, I’ve collected some creative Halloween treat ideas that are fruit based. I will be the first to admit that most of these treats are not what most people would consider to be a “healthy” treat, but they are made from fruit, so that has to count for something. I hope it does. At least, the kids are eating fruit and candy. That makes me feel a little better. Read on, and let us know what you think about these fruit based Halloween treats that we’ve collected for you.

  1. I love all of these! They are so fun! I can’t wait to make some of these goodies for Halloween. My neighbor friends will love them.

    1. Katie, Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I know what you mean about all of these being so fun. I can’t decide which ones are going to make an appearance in my house on Halloween.

  2. These fruit-based Halloween treats are such cool ideas! I think my favorite is the orange. I read your post on how to make it and had a good laugh. It was so funny reading about the confiscated orange, the celery stem, etc.

    1. Angie, I love all of these different fruit based treats, too, but I think your choice is probably the healthiest. The members of my family are always circling when there’s food involved. Over the years, I have snapped photos of cookies that are being stolen, and casseroles with servings removed before I can take a picture. They’re a hungry bunch, but as my mother always said about food, “I make it to eat.” I suppose I shouldn’t complain.

    1. Mikayla, I am having the same problem. Trying to choose one or two for Halloween is difficult. Thanks for taking the time to leave us a comment. We really appreciate it.

  3. What an awesome roundup! It’s great to have a few fruit snacks for Halloween along with all the candy, cake and cookies. The ghost strawberries are adorable!

    1. Amy, Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the ghost strawberries, too, but I also love the chocolate fudge mice with the strawberry centers. I think they look creepy when you bite them in half.

  4. Ok, it’s official! The strawberry ghosts is my favorite halloween dessert! What a creative idea and it will “spook” kids into eating strawberries

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. Those strawberry ghosts are adorable. I agree that it will “spook” kids into eating strawberries, but Bus Boy and Sue Chef adore strawberries. Only Food Critic requires encouragement.

    1. Linda, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate it. I know what you mean about picking a favorite. My family keeps changing their minds about what they want for Halloween. Today, they are wanting the chocolate dipped apple mummies.

  5. Such a fun Halloween party ideas. I already see some that my son would enjoy. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful recipes.
