Yummy Fall Recipes!

In the spirit of Halloween I decided to go all out and try to create some fun, yummy, low-calorie, allergen free treats!

I introduce to you Halloween Popcorn Treats and Apple Jello Dessert!

Halloween Popcorn Treats
(My very favorite!!)

8 pieces Campfire Marshmellows 200cal

28 pieces Pretzel Sticks (small) 110cal

30 grams Dairy-free Soy-Free Chocolate Chips 150cal

15 grams Orange colored sprinkles 0cal

Total Cals- 590

32 servings

19 cals per serving

In a double boiling pot, melt marshmallows and chocolate.

Add popcorn and pretzels, stir well. Add sprinkles for decoration.

Apple Jello Dessert
(Not as sweet tasting as it sounds! Yummy!)

3 Cups Sliced apples (sliced small) 180cal

¼ Cup Pureed Apple (Baby Food) 35cal

2 Cups (1 package) Strawberry Jello Mix 320cal

½ Cup Flour 220

¼ Cup Sugar 194

¼ Cup Brown Sugar 194

143 cals per serving

In a 9x9 pan cover base with apple slices.
Make Jello mix and pour jello (before you set it) over the apples.
Combine sugars, flour and pureed apples and spread mixture over apple and jello.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

All of it sounds YUMMY! I'm not so worried about allergens but I'm on a diet (again) so I can use all the help I can get!

this reminds me of my childhood, we always made popcorn balls to give away to trick or treators. Now a days we can not make home made yummies for folks we don't know, they just get thrown away, what has the world come to. Thank you for the recipe!
