Halloween is quickly becoming my favorite time of year. I wasn’t always a big fan but now that I have little ones the holidays are becoming much more fun. My boys have already started helping me plan our front porch decorations and our neighborhood Halloween party. Both are sure to be frightfully fun!

My favorite part of throwing a party is planning foods to go with each theme. Halloween is no different. We’ve already taste tested our Dracula Punch and we had Mummies In A Blanket last year for lunch so our drinks and main course are pretty much taken care of. But what about the dessert? I wanted to do something different than cupcakes or ice cream and also wanted to make it somewhat healthy (since Halloween is notorious for being the craziest candy day of the year).

But I still wanted to incorporate candy some how. And what candy screams Halloween more than candy corn?! I could make candy corn cookies but that wouldn’t be healthy at all. Then I remembered I had been wanting to try a fruit pizza for ages and I could incorporate the colors of candy corn into this fruity, delicious dessert. I started with my favorite sugar cookie recipe and added cutie oranges and bananas on top.

These cookies/fruit pizzas were the perfect mix of sweet, fruity and tangy. My boys (and I) loved them and with the recipe I used we were able to make 10 small sized pizzas (about 6″ in diameter); the perfect amount to share with friends. So if you are looking for a sweet, healthy(ish) treat to serve this Halloween season, give these Candy Corn Fruit Pizzas a try!
