Think Outside the (Cupcake) Box

When coming up with an alternative to sweets to celebrate Halloween and Fall…

…it doesn’t have to automatically mean fruit kebobs. 

To help reduce the sugar load, and just as important teach healthy traditions that will last a lifetime, try to think up things that will take the focus off of the candy.

Don’t just change the color of your frosting.  Make each celebration truly different!
