Foodie Friday: Healthy Halloween Treats!

Hello and happy happy Friday!!  I am linking up again with my girls: Farrah from Fairyburger, Montana from Pretty Lil Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Cassandra from Powered by BLING!!  Today’s theme is Healthy Halloween Treats!!

Well, I am not really much of a Halloween person.  We never really participated growing up, and the one time I remember trick-or-treating, it was a let down at the end of the night.
Anyways, I DO love the fall, and this week I found some cute snacks to make with the twins that I thought were cute!
