Honey Crisp Mummy

HoneyCrispMummy

Have you every tasted a Honey Crisp Mummy before?  They may be scary but they are still delicious!  In my opinion Honey Crisp apples are the most crunchy, very tasty and they make a great Mummy.  Here is a simple way to spook up your apples no matter which kind you prefer.  Halloween is the perfect time to get creative and maybe even a little silly with your fruits and vegetables.  It is also a great way to trick those kiddos into eating some healthy snacks.  Stay tuned for more spooky Halloween fruit.

What you’ll need:

apples
a vegetable peeler
googly eyes (remove before serving. No choking accidents please.)

Peel one side of the apple in the shape of an “S” then cut little holes where you would like the eyes.  Place googly eyes in the holes.  If you prefer to use edible eyes maybe try some nuts, chocolate chips or even pretzel sticks.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!

Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

PumpkinSeedsllll

These Spicy Pumpkin Seeds are so delicious you’ll be impressed you made them yourself.  Halloween has been my favorite holiday since I was a kid.  Every year I would look forward to the first chill of the season, the candy, the leaves crunching beneath my feet, the candy, the Halloween decorations, the candy and just the feeling of the holiday season beginning. Oh and did I mention the candy?  Nowadays, candy is far from my mind.  I have come a long way from that little girl who used to see how many Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups I could fit in my mouth at one time.  I now get excited for the whole food snacks and homemade treats.  These Spicy Pumpkin Seeds have become a family favorite and I hope you enjoy them too.

The Ingredients:

1 c pumpkin seeds, dried
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

First, rinse the seeds thoroughly.  Removing every bit of pumpkin flesh.  This can be daunting but it is necessary.  Spread all the seeds on a flat surface overnight to dry them out.  I used a brown paper bag.  The next day, pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.  Place the seeds in a small saucepan filled with water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a low boil and cook for about 5-10 minutes.  Note: boiling the seeds first will aid in digesting the outer shell.

Next, remove the seeds from the heat, strain and pat them dry.  In a small mixing bowl whisk together all the ingredients listed above.  Add the seeds and mix well.  You can either use a spoon or your hands until every seed is covered.

Lastly, place them in the oven for 20-30 minutes stirring them every 5-10 minutes.  This will help prevent burning.  Remove from heat and serve.

These seeds can be stored in an airtight container for about 2 weeks.  Though they most likely will not last that long.

Enjoy!
