In our family, Halloween is a time of community connection. It’s the one time of year we know we can interact with hundreds of our neighbors, and I’m always amazed at the number of meaningful experiences we end up having. Although we do have fun at zombie conventions, we choose to keep Halloween cute and fun, rather than scary.
My obsession with cute kid food is now full swing thanks to motherhood, and though Corban doesn’t get the chocolate chips yet, he can enjoy the bananas in these cute Boonana ghosts.
These are THE EASIEST Halloween snack you can make! But what’s really exciting is that they’re also a healthy Halloween snack.
Quick tip: If your bananas topple over, and a little bit of peanut butter still doesn’t hold them in place, just trim them a little shorter until they’re sturdy. Mommy gets to eat the trimmed bits!
Feeling spooky yet? I’ve got a couple more cute kid snacks for Halloween up my sleeve, so stay tuned!

Approximate cost/serving: Basically whatever your banana costs is your cost. So this ends up being around 30 cents a serving for me.
Vegetarian/Gluten Free: Yes to both, and you can easily keep it vegan by using dairy free dark chocolate chips.
