Photo from Taste of Home -- Halloween snacks don't have to be sweet. Pepper Popper Fingers, made with jalapeno peppers, are baked instead of fried, making them a scary and healthful choice.

Looking for a scary Halloween snack that’s not sweet? Consider making Pepper Popper Fingers.

The recipe from Taste of Home uses jalapeño peppers, cheese, bacon and sliced almonds to make the savory appetizer “fingers.”

The Halloween-inspired treat is baked instead of being fried, so they are also frightfully easy to make.
