Labor Day passed (hope you had a fabulous day!) and I feel like I can finally post some Halloween fun.  Monster Fruit Dip with Mouthy Apples are the perfect snack for your kids or a little side dish for a party.  My kids got a kick out of the eyes in this easy to make dip.  Over the next few weeks you’ll see several posts geared towards the cute/fun ideas for Halloween rather than the spooky/scary ones. Monster Fruit Dip- fun kids snack that's perfect for Halloween from

Gather a few ingredients and you are all set.  Little effort with maximum affect- win/win for everyone!  I love pistachio flavored things – this dip has a different taste than your average fruit dip.  I found the edible eyes (Wilton brand) at Joann’s but have seen them at other stores and online as well.

    This looks like a fun treat that I know my kids will eat. And I’m glad it’s not a scary/spooky thing either – I prefer the cute side of Halloween too :)

    Totally off subject, but would you mind sharing the fonts you used for the words Monster fruit dip in the first picture? I really like those……
