Itty-bitty candy corn contains a not so itty-bitty list of questionable ingredients. Corn syrup, dextrose, yellow 6, and artificial flavoring just to name a few. These cute candy corn popsicles on the other hand? Yogurt, orange juice, and pineapple juice!

3. Halloween Stuffed Peppers

4. Banana Ghost Pops

Simple, scary, and scrumptious, these simple banana ghost pops are so simple to make. Simply freeze halved banana with a popsicle stick until solid (4+ hours or overnight), dunk in vanilla yogurt (or melted white chocolate if you want to be extra decadent), place mini chocolate chips in the eyes and re-freeze. Boo!
