If you’re like me, then you’re always on the lookout for easy-to-make kid-friendly snacks that you can share in the school classroom. Between my 3 boys, it seems like there is constantly a new party or function that needs food — especially around the holidays!

The key ingredient for these Halloween Yogurt Cups is Horizon’s Chocolate Snack Grahams. They’re made with organic whole wheat, they come in fun shapes, and best of all: the kids (and adults) LOVE them!

I used the round chocolate grahams to create spiders for my Spider Web Yogurt Cups. Just squeeze a little bit of black cake frosting onto the back of some candy eyes. The frosting acts as glue to adhere the eyes to the flat side of the graham cracker.

Then just fill a small cup or bowl with yogurt (we like Horizon’s Organic Vanilla Yogurt), and use a tube of black cake decorating gel to draw the web on top. Add one of your spiders and the cup is ready. Seriously — this doesn’t take more than 5 minutes!

If you want to get really fancy, you can add 8 legs to your spider with the decorating gel or with small pieces of black licorice, but I chose to keep it simple and quick (because that’s how I roll).

If you have any extra chocolate grahams or little spider friends, serve them in a separate cup. The kids love them on their own, too!

But I’m not even done yet! I also used the chocolate grahams to make the dirt for my Pumpkin Patch Yogurt Cups.

Add a handful or two of grahams to a zip-top plastic bag. Press out the air, seal the bag, and crush the crackers with a rolling pin or other similar object.

By the way, the kids love to help with this part!

Sprinkle the “dirt” on top of a cup of yogurt, top with a few candy pumpkins, and use a tube of green cake frosting to draw vines in your patch. Again, this doesn’t take more than 5 minutes!
