If you're worried about the amount of sugar and junk food your kids will indulge in on Halloween, give them a mini sweet potato pumpkin as a side for dinner to hopefully balance out the bad with the good.

These cute miniature pumpkins are actually sweet potatoes that are covered in bread crumbs and topped with a pretzel for the stem; how healthy you wish to make this appetizer is completely up to you. If you're serving these as a meal, you can hollow out the potato and fill it with some sort of meat or cream cheese and vegetables.

For the hosts who love throwing Halloween parties, the mini sweet potato pumpkin tray can actually contain spicy pumpkins if you include your favorite spices with the bread crumbs.
