Halloween Raisin Spiders - Featured

One of the many reasons I love food swapping ..

It pushes me to try different things

Eerie Raisin Spiders - Loved these little guys .. As tasty as they are cute! The perfect combo of sweet & salty .. with a crunch. Indulge this Halloween on being good

Branch out of my comfort zone ..

I want to bring something interesting .. that others will want to swap for .. maybe it's an item that brims with flavor .. or is terribly out of the ordinary (in the best of ways)

Eerie Edibles ..

Loved the theme .. it felt like a challenge

There HAVE to be healthy ways to enjoy Halloween treats .. something more grown-up .. where one can indulge on being good .. without ever realizing it

These little guys fit the bill

The flavor combos were interesting .. raisins .. honey for sweet .. brown rice puffs added crunch .. pretzels rounded them out with salty ..

Eye & leg glue? Hah .. I've got just the thing .. pb chocolate protein fudge

They were a hit .. everybody loved the cute little spiders ..

Proving once again that holidays don't have to be filled with blobs of sugar and saying “No” to ourselves at every turn

Enjoy!

ps:  Who says you can't make the balls and enjoy them in your everyday? Have one with some greek yogurt and you've got a complete meal.
