Helping Denver Families Avoid Overly Sugary Snacks This Season

October is here and that means Halloween is right around the corner! We know that during this time of year it’s difficult to minimize our candy intake, so Gentle Smiles of Colorado wants to introduce three dental friendly snacks that are fun to make for you and your family. Take a break from the sugar rush and enjoy these tasty snacks!

Apple Spiders

Apple Spiders


  1. Carefully slice the apples into circles, so that each apple will produce 4 even slices for the spider body.
  2. Cut the fruit leather in half and slice 5 pieces lengthwise for the legs
  3. Spread 1 teaspoon of almond butter on an apple circle and attach 8 strips of fruit leather to give the spider legs.
  4. Place another apple circle over the almond butter and fruit leather to finish the body and place two mini chocolate chips for the eyes.

Tangerine Pumpkins

Tangerine Pumpkins


  1. Peel the tangerine and scrape off as much as the white membrane as possible.

  2. Cut 1-2 inch narrow pieces from the top of the celery and insert it in the peeled tangerine.

  3. Remove the celery leaves and arrange them so that it looks like the pumpkin leaves.

Cheese Witch’s Broomstick

Cheese Broomsticks


  1. Fold the cheese slice in half and cut slices to make fringes of the broom

  2. Roll the cheese around the pretzel stick so that the fringe is facing down

  3. Use a strip of the fresh chive to tie a knot around the cheese to hold it together.
