Homemade Halloween Fruit Snacks

DIY Halloween Fruit Snacks

 

Getting children involved in making their own Halloween treats is one of the best ways to get children less interested in harmful packaged candies, and more interested in their own healthy creations.

Here are a few favorites in my house, especially for my 3 year old who loves to help in the kitchen with mixing and pouring.

Halloween Fruit Snacks

 

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup of fresh strawberries or blueberries (or a combo of both)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup of unflavored gelatin (I use Great Lakes Gelatin)
  • 1-2 tbsp of raw honey or Organic Maple Syrup (optional, omit to make gummies less sweet)

Directions

Throw the fresh berries in a blender and add the water until you reach a runny consistency.

Pour the berry mixture into a small saucepan over medium heat and slowly add the gelatin.  Stir until all the gelatin is dissolved.

Pour the mixture into a small 8×8 Pyrex pan. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour before cutting it. Use Halloween cookie cutters to cut out ghosts, monsters and pumpkins.

Kids love these easy to grab gummies and parents can feel good that they only contain all natural ingredients.
