Cocoa Avocado Franken-Bites: A Fun Halloween Snack!

Recipe: Cocoa Avocado Franken-Bites

Age: 12 months plus
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: NO COOK!
Yield: 25 crackers
Food storage: best served immediately
Serving: self-feed, family friendly

  • 1 ripe avocado, seed and skin removed
  • 1 cup dark chocolate baking chips (or milk chocolate, if you prefer)
  • 25 square crackers of your choice
  • 50 mini white chocolate chips (2 for each cracker)


Mash avocado in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

Melt the chocolate baking chips in a microwave-safe bowl, in 30 second increments, stirring in between (about 2-3 times).

Using a spreader, spread avocado evenly onto a cracker. Dip the top of the cracker into the chocolate to create the “hair”. Then, add 2 of the white chocolate chips as eyes.

Now, dip the tip of the spreader into the chocolate (or use a paint brush) to dot the eyes and add a fun mouth shape. Get creative! Repeat for the remaining crackers.
