Hurricane Sandy may have put a damper on your Halloween plans, but that’s no reason not to enjoy the holiday.  Indulge a little with a piece of chocolate, or better yet, make your own healthy versions of classic Halloween candy with our roundup of  DIY copycat recipes. If you have some pumpkins, carve yourself a spooky jack-o-lantern, but save those seeds for roasting–they’ve got tons of health benefits!

We love Halloween-themed foods, too, like these banana ghost pops or oozing cake ball brains from Hungry Happenings. Here are a few of our other favorite Halloween recipes from around the web:

Ghost Pretzels from Dinners, Dishes and Desserts
Vegan Candy Corn from Chocolate Covered Katie
Blood Spatter Cookies from Annie’s Eats
Witch’s Brew from Eat, Drink, Love
Severed Sweet Potato Hand from Vanilla and Spice

Wherever you are, we hope you have a safe and healthy Halloween!
