You don't need to be nine to have some Halloween fun, people. Whip up these no-guilt goodies for yourself (or the little ones!). 
Mr. Puffy Pumpkinhead Freezy-Cool Whoopie Pie

PER SERVING (entire recipe, 1 "whoopie pie"): 168 calories, 2g fat, 356mg sodium, 31.5g carbs, 7g fiber, 14g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*


 

 


Ingredients:
1 VitaTop (Deep Chocolate, Double Chocolate Dream, or Triple Chocolate Chunk), frozen
3 tbsp. Cool Whip Free, thawed
2 tbsp. fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
2 tbsp. canned pure pumpkin
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)

Directions:
Carefully slice VitaTop in half lengthwise, so that you are left with 2 thin round Vita "slices." Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine all other ingredients. Stir until smooth. Spoon mixture into a small sealable plastic bag, and squeeze it down toward a bottom corner of the bag. Snip a tiny bit of that corner off with scissors, so that you have a makeshift piping bag for distributing the filling.

Lay the bottom slice of your Vita flat, with the cut side down. The exposed side will be the "face" of Mr. Puffy -- it is the smoothest, most beautiful surface to work on. Carefully draw a jack-o-lantern face on it with the pumpkin mixture: 2 solid triangles for eyes and a squiggly mouth. (See photo!) Set aside.

Lay the top slice of the Vita flat, with the cut side up. Squeeze ALL of the remaining pumpkin mixture (there will be A LOT!) evenly onto the exposed side. Gently place the other Vita slice -- with the "face" up -- on top, creating a sandwich with a pumpkin-mixture filling.

Freeze until solid, about 1 hour. Enjoy!

Halloweenie Spaghetti Spiders

PER SERVING (entire recipe, 6 "spiders"): 65 calories, 1g fat, 520mg sodium, 8g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 0g sugars, 7g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Kids will gobble up these wiggly food items in a heartbeat... and so will fun-loving grown-ups!


 

Ingredients:
1 Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Frank (or another hot dog with about 40 calories and less than 2g fat)
12 dry whole-wheat-blend spaghetti strands (like the kind by Ronzoni)
Optional dips: ketchup, mustard, low-fat marinara sauce

Directions:
Cut hot dog evenly into 6 coin-shaped pieces. Set aside.

Carefully break the spaghetti strands in half, leaving you with 24 "sticks" that are uniform in length.

One at a time, poke 4 spaghetti sticks through a round side of 1 hot dog piece until they come out the other side. (Adjust the sticks so there are equal amounts on either end of the hot dog piece.) Repeat entire process 5 times, so that you are left with 6 hot dog pieces with 4 sticks through each.

Bring a pot of water to a boil on the stove. Once boiling, carefully add spaghetti-dog pieces. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 7 - 8 minutes, until spaghetti has softened to desired texture.

Serve with ketchup and/or mustard or some low-fat marinara sauce. Enjoy!
