Halloween is just around the corner: Time to bust out the costumes, spooky decor, and yummy fall recipes. With so many yummy candy treats to be enjoyed on Halloween night, coming up with less sugary Halloween snacks helps keep the night a bit healthier for your superheroes, ghosts, witches, zombies, ballerinas, cheerleaders, vampires, robots (and whatever else their imagination can dream up) is important.
They’re a great choice to snack on before you head out into the neighborhood! Let’s look at our savory nut dips and all the ways you can enjoy them, as well as some fun and spooky ideas for other healthy snacks.
Easy and Healthy Halloween Food
Spinach Artichoke Cashew & Almond Dip
You would swear our Spinach Cashew and Almond Dip has cheese in it, it’s so creamy. Our re-invention of one of the world’s most popular dips is a crowd-pleaser for adults and kids alike. This dip is amazing when you dip crackers, bread, or veggies into it. Or, you can use it as a base for pizza, mac ‘n cheese, dolloped onto baked potatoes or stuffed into pasta shells (delicious, right?).
French Onion Cashew and Almond Dip
French Onion dip is a classic flavor – but it’s also notoriously unhealthy. We reimagined it as a cashew and almond dip so it’s healthy, without skimping on flavor. This dip is good with all the usual dippables – bread, chips, veggies, etc. Branch out a bit and use it as a base for pizza or add it to soup for a deep, rich, tangy flavor your whole family will love.
Spicy Pepper Cashew and Almond Dip
Our Spicy Pepper dip is truly unique: The creaminess of the cashews and almonds pairs perfectly with the five different types of roasted peppers: poblano, red bell, green and red jalapeños, and a touch of habanero. Our favorite way to eat this dip? Toss grilled veggies and chickpea pasta with a dollop of this dip for a spicy and yummy pasta meal.
Roasted Garlic Cashew and Almond Dip
Is there a better flavor than roasted garlic? We argue there is not (unless you count our other hummus and nut dip flavors, of course). This dip is great on its own (you can dip pretty much anything savory and it will be delicious), but it also makes a great base for pasta sauces or pizzas as well (hello creamy, tangy flavor!).
Our savory cashew and almond dips are excellent healthy Halloween snacks to enjoy before heading out to harvest candy. Are you throwing a party?

Fun Halloween Games
We’re all about getting together and celebrating: It means food, games, and spending time with friends and family. We’ve got the food covered above, now it’s time for some games. There are so many fun Halloween games your whole family will love: Here are a few we thought looked particularly fun!
Blow up orange and black balloons and fill them with prizes (candy, money, small toys, etc.) and scatter them around. Make a competition to see who can pop them the fastest or simply enjoy stomping around the yard.
This Halloween spin on the classic truth or dare game is full of spooky fun! These 100 questions (like “What’s your favorite part of Halloween?,” or “Would you rather turn into a bat to fly or fly on a broom?”) are fun for the entire family and will get everyone asking questions and swapping stories.
Who doesn’t like Jenga? This version uses flat candy (like Kit-Kats) instead of wooden blocks. The best part? You can eat them (or hand them out to trick or treaters) when you’re all done playing!
If it’s freezing outside (here in Colorado it’s always freezing on Halloween night), planning some indoor games is a good idea. This game is super fun: simply blow up orange balloons, draw a face on them, then give participants funnels and see who can catch their balloon the most.
