I had so much fun making these Halloween spider dates! When I was scrolling through the internet for some inspiration there were a lot of scary recipes, from entire graveyards, to mummy cookies and soups with fingers. But so time consuming! These 3-ingredient Halloween spider dates are perfect if you are looking for an easy Halloween treat.
I have a former colleague who hated dates. Only the sight of a date would make her run away. She said they look like cockroaches! Yup, dates are delicious but they don’t really look appetizing. What’s more scary than a date turning into a huge spider with teeth? And moms, the bonus is of course that it’s so easy to make!
I hope you’ll have as much fun as I did making these spider dates. Make them with kids, because there is no stress, no baking, and no ”non-edible” ingredients…. I would love to see your creations on social media with #thegreencreator!Print
A super easy to make Halloween recipe with only 3 ingredients. Scary Spider Dates!
- 3 Medjool dates
- 3 cashews nuts, cut in pieces
- 1 goji berry
- optional: chia seeds for a ”furry” like back
- Cut the dates, remove the stone and fill them with cashew nut pieces.
- The extra date is to create the legs and to make the teeth and eyes stick. So cut this extra date in thin stripes. Roll them until you have a thin spider leg. Make eight spiderlegs for one date. Place them on the side of the date. With the left over of the extra date you can creat a ”glue” to make the eyes and the teeth stick. The eyes and teeth are also little pieces of cashew nuts and the nose is a gojiberrie cut in half. Be creative, and the scarier the better!
