Healthy Halloween Treat - Fruit Spider - Young Living


Young Living Healthy Halloween Treat


  • Wooden kebab sticks
  • 1 dark plum
  • Black grapes or blueberries; green or red apple chunks, green or red grapes, or most other tasty fruits will work, too.
  • Plastic googly eyes
  • Nut butter


Young Living Healthy Halloween Treat


  1. Use Thieves® Fruit & Veggie Soak to clean fruit.
  2. Gather 16 equally sized wooden kebab sticks. Break them into 4-inch sections.
  3. Skewer grapes on eight of the sticks so that the grapes touch, leaving one grape covering one end as a connector, but leaving the other end bare to poke into the plum.
  4. Repeat on the other eight sticks, inserting the exposed ends into the joints of the previous set of grape sticks at an angle.
  5. Once connected, poke legs into the plum, with four legs on each side.
  6. Gather two googly eyes and attach them to front of plum with your choice of nut butter.

    Admiring the dedication you put into your website and
    detailed information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date
    rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my

    You could also do this with raisins and toothpicks…

    Thank you for sharing a healthy edible treat. As a preschool teacher I am always very happy to see a healthier snack choice become available. This one is very cute and delicious.

    Better then plastic eyes use edible eyes. Most stores that have a cake decorating section have them. Especially during the holidays there are multiple mini kits to decorate cupcakes. This is a much better option especially if you have little ones that will want to eat the eyes.

    I love this idea … however, when I make it, I’ll make the eyes edible.

      Eyes could even be a necco wafer and a raisin for the pupil
