It’s almost Halloween and kids and parents LOVE it! But this year, with door-to-door activity curtailed or smartly distanced, Halloween and celebrating the fall season is going to be different. But we are lucky to have Chef Jamie Gwen with us today to show us some fun treats to celebrate.
Even with things looking different this year it doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun and tasty treats. Whether you are home-gating or enjoying the chill of fall by a fire pit, I like to take advantage of the flavors fall brings. For the grown-up crowd, Smirnoff Seltzer has introduced two new zero sugar hard seltzer variety packs. The core variety pack features new flavors Lemon Lime, Black Cherry and Orange, as well as returning fan-favorite, Berry Lemonade. Or in the limited-edition fall pack, they have introduced new seasonal flavors like Peach, Raspberry and Blackberry flavors along with bringing back the classic combo of Cranberry Lime. Best of all these contain only 90 calories, zero sugar and one carb and are available wherever Smirnoff is sold. Click here for more info.
According to a recent poll, 73% of parents are working to limit sugar intake, which is why I love serving sweet treats with a twist like Sabra’s Dark Chocolate Dessert Dip & Spread this season. You can feel great about serving it to your family and they will absolutely love the decadent chocolate flavor. It tastes like pudding to me! Plant-based, gluten-free, vegan, only 80 calories per serving and lower in sugar than other chocolate spreads. You can decorate it to look like a spider web and add dippers both sweet and salty like strawberries, pretzels, and crackers to make a tasty treat. Click here for more information.
Or really add a fun scare with my eyeball pasta! Super simple to make. Make spaghetti with meatballs and add the "eyes" to the meatballs using black olives.
