Here’s something to help tone down the sugar coma that results from having that candy binge on October 31. Try our healthy Halloween treats! And yes, I did say “healthy” and “Halloween” in the same sentence.
These little gems are yummy and healthy and so easy to make. And – my fab frugal friends – they are a FABFRUGALFOOD EXCLUSIVE! No, seriously – you won’t find these out there anywhere! I thought this up whilstÂ in the shower one morning. Hey! – isn’t that where you receive your best culinary inspirations?
Here’s the scoop: Just cook some medium or short-grain rice as per the package directions, but replace some of the water with carrot juice. Let cool to room temp. Form into little balls the size of ping-pong balls. Cut black olives into little shapes to form eyes and mouth and then a little piece of green bell pepper or green onion to form a stem.
Then, just sit back and revel in your healthy but festive smugness.
Happy Hauntings, Everyone!
