During the month of October, healthy Halloween snacks are a must at my house.  We love celebrating, but we like to keep things healthy too. Enter these boiled egg ghosts!

My kids think these are so fun, and I’m preeeetty sure it’s one of the easiest healthy Halloween snacks ever.

I like to “boil” my eggs in the Instant Pot.  It’s the only way I do it now.  The eggs turn out perfect every time, and for some reason it just feels easier, and quicker than boiling them over the stove.

If you don’t have an instant pot, that’s okay!  Just use the stovetop method.

Also, guys, I am terrible at drawing.  Like I can’t even draw a stick figure kind of bad.  So I’m 100 percent positive that your boiled egg ghosts will look a heck of a lot cuter than mine!   😂
