Updated: Oct 27, 2020
Halloweed is right around the corner, and it is definitely a day where we indulge in the Tokes and the Treats. We will admit we occasionally over-do the candy and delicious sweets and treats that come with the festivities, so we love to prep some Spooky Stoner Snacks so we can fulfill our munchies with healthy, balanced foods.
These spooktacular treats, made by SoStonedCo's Mandee Leslie, are frighteningly delicious and will have you feeling ready for a full night of festivities. Pair these snacks with our Halloweed Playlist and you will be vibing in no time at all!
Warm, Savory, and Spooky Spiderweb Taco Dip
This is the perfect snack if you are sharing. This dish is fast, easy, and perfect for dipping chips, tortillas, crackers, or veggies. You will need 1 pound of grass-fed ground beef, 1 packet of organic taco seasoning mix (or your own personal blend), 1 cups of organic sour cream. 2 cups of salsa, 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup of guacamole.
1. Cook seasoned ground beef until no longer pink (about 5 minutes). Add 1/2 packet of taco seasoning (or preferred spices) and cook until thickened. PRO TIP: You can also throw some canna-butter or canna-olive oil into this to make it into a delicious canna-dip.
2. In your serving dish of choice, layer beef mixture and flatten with a spatula, followed by a layer of salsa, leaving the beef layer showing around the outside to make a border. Next, add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese leaving the salsa layer showing around the edges. Pop into the oven for just a few moments to make the top cheese layer extra gooey.
3. The finishing touch is layering with guacamole and drawing on the sour cream (We use a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off) to create the spider web effect! Top with some props and enjoy!
Frightening Fruity Zombie Bananas & Tangerine Pumpkins
These are so easy to make, not to mention cost-efficient and delicious. You will need bananas, chocolate morsels, tangerines, and green apples.
1. Peel and half bananas in half. Stick the pointy end of the chocolate morsel into the banana to make a face.
2. Peel tangerines. Chop the apple into thin slices and stick into the top of your tangerine to make a pumpkin handle. Enjoy!
Hauntingly Flavorful Pasture-Raised Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
Full of protein and easy to make, these are a great way to satisfy your cravings! You will need 12 large pasture-raised eggs, 1/3 cup of PUFA free mayo (We love the Thrive Market brand from Thrive Market), 1 tablespoon of organic spicy brown mustard, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, garlic salt, paprika, and 2-3 chives. (Add a dash of hot sauce for a spicier version).
1. Boil water and carefully add eggs. Boil for about 12 minutes. Let cool completely. Shell the eggs and cut in half. Scoop the egg yolks out into a bowl and place the egg whites on a plate.
2. Mash up the yolks with a fork and add the mayo, mustard, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and optional hot sauce to taste. Mix together well and carefully scoop the mixture back into the egg whites. Top with paprika and place chives to look like pumpkin stems.
Creamy and Sweet Strawberry Yo-Ghosts
These are sweet and delicious, they can also be frozen for another delicious version! You will need 1 quart of strawberries, 1 cup of plain or vanilla greek yogurt, honey, and chocolate chips.
1. Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut off the strawberry stems, and place the top side down on a serving plate.
2. Mix yogurt with honey to sweeten, Coat the berries in yogurt using a spoon or dipping directly into the yogurt. Add chocolate chips for the face and you have a fun, healthy, and delicious Halloween treat.
3. To freeze, before adding the chocolate face place the berries into the freezer for an hour. Repeat the coating process, and place chocolate chip face on. Freeze for an additional hour and serve.
