Heathy Halloween Snacks: Corn Muffins, Cheese Ghosts & Ice Screams

Halloween is here!  Since tonight the kids will be getting plenty of treats I wanted to avoid getting sugar happy during the day, but we still need to celebrate.  So I whipped up these healthy snacks so we could be festive and not go into sweets overload:  Cheesy Ghosts & Corn Muffins and Ice Screams.

I adapted a cornbread recipe from my childhood Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cookbook to make some tasty corn muffins.

1 cup frozen corn
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 vegetable oil

Thaw the corn.  Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Beat eggs in a small bowl, then stir in the remaining wet items.  Add corn and egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir until blended.

Fill each muffin cup two-thirds full and baked at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

I used these greaseproof Night of Halloween muffin cups.  They worked great.

To decorate my savory muffins, I used this mini stamp cutter to make some little ghost cheeses:

The stamp pressed in the face details (and made it super easy to remove the cheese from the cutter).  I attached them with toothpicks so they could "float" over the spooky town cups.

And for a healthy Halloween drink, I made some fruity ice cubes by mixing Ribena (blackberry drink concentrate) with water in a fun face silicone mold:

They turned out to be a real scream;)

Now we can enjoy some treats tonight and the kids won't be bouncing off the walls or in a sugar coma before we get started.  I hope everyone has a safe & Happy Halloween!
