Halloween is all about costumes and candy - lots of candy. Perhaps a bit too much candy? The candy struggle can be especially difficult when you have little ones. They want to get in on all the Halloween fun, but you might not want them to indulge in that much sugar. Here is the answer - Homemade Halloween cheesy crackers.
Kids love cheesy crackers - goldfish, bunnies and penguins. I've come up with a simple recipe for making your own crispy cheesy crackers that can be made into any shape you like. Grab the Halloween cookie cutters - we chose a bat and a black cat - and bake up a batch with the kids. These crackers puff up and have a deliciously deep cheese flavour. Kids will have fun dipping them in soup or eating them as a snack on their own.
Homemade Halloween cheesy crackers make a fun, healthy alternative to Halloween treats.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
3-4 tbsp cold water
These crackers would make a great healthy addition to a school Halloween party, or package a few in a little bag and hand them out to trick-or-treaters. Store them in an air tight container and they should last 5-7 days. After a few days they might start to lose their crunch - but they are still delicious. What healthy Halloween treats do you kids like?
