Halloween in our house usually doesn’t happen. We have rarely celebrate Halloween, but I still magically end up overindulging in candy (!!!) that sends me into a 3 month sugar-fest…not good.

I am committed to keeping the candy to a minimum this entire holiday season, and I want to create some allergy-friendly candy alternatives for my kids so they can still enjoy some sweet things when everyone else at school is eating peanut-y candy treats.

These cute Chocolate Fruit Bugs are super easy to make and fool-proof! I was going to make these into spiders, but didn’t have enough room for 8 legs, so they are just 6-legged bugs. If you want spiders, you can add another set of legs.

Instructions

  • Cut the fruit leather lengthwise into strips and then cut these in half if they are long. These will be the legs
  • Arrange 3 fruit strip pieces and overlap the pieces, pressing them together in the middle to smoosh the fruit leather to make them stick together.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate by heating for 30 seconds at a time and stirring after each 30-seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Stir the coconut oil into the chocolate to help thin the chocolate a bit for easier dipping
  • Dip apricots in chocolate and place on top of the fruit leather
  • Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes
  • Chill in the fridge until set up
  • Enjoy!
