1. Dark Chocolate
For a simple swap, dark chocolate usually contains less sugar than milk chocolate. Dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cocoa solids, which means the sugar content is often lower.1
If you don't have dark chocolate bars to give away, why not make dark chocolate covered strawberries or almonds as a treat instead?
2. Apple and peanut butter monsters
These apple and peanut butter-based treats make for the perfect spooky sugar swap. Simply stuff your apple slices with peanut butter, a strawberry for a tongue and decorate with low-sugar marshmallow eyeballs.
Plain popcorn is a tasty snack, that comes without the risk of tooth decay. Plain popcorn is sugar-free, but still delicious, making it a great alternative this Halloween.
4. Banana ghosts
Make your Halloween spook-tacular this month with these simple banana ghouls! Simply chop up some bananas and add dark chocolate drops for the eyes and mouth.
5. Homemade toffee apples
Toffee apples are a classic Halloween treat, but they also contain lots of sugar. Instead of using toffee or caramel this year, make yours using either peanut or almond butter. Top with desiccated coconut to finish.
