Hot Dog Mummies
My personal party fav for kids. Cut Pillsbury glutenfree crescent roll dough into thin strips and wrap around Applegate Organic or other healthy hot dogs. Bake according to crescent package directions and use ketchup or mustard for eyes. I cut my hot dogs in half to make them bite-sized.
Apple Witches Teeth from Shape.com. What terrible teeth you have! Apples and slivered almonds form this healthy snack. Have a nut allergy? Use bits of pretzel sticks or even rice crispies to get the same look with no nuts.
String Cheese Witches Brooms from Cocinando Con Catman. String cheese, pretzels and chives brooms will transport your little witches and warlocks across the moon. These adorable treats would be perfect for a Harry Potter party too.

There are several healthy and tasty sugar free candies now made with the best plant-based sweeteners like Stevia. But they're expensive for handing out to to hoards of trick-o-treaters.
