Snack-O-Lantern Fruit Cup
This one is easy! Hallow out an orange and carve a happy jack-o-lantern face in it, just as you would with your pumpkin. Then, take your favorite fruit salad and fill each of the oranges. Be sure not to fill them too early so the salad doesn’t go bad.
This recipe isn’t much harder than the last. All you’ll need is some bananas, some popsicle sticks and some Greek yogurt. You can use white chocolate for this… but were still going to try and keep things healthy.
All you need to do is cut your bananas vertically in half, freeze them, and then dip them in the yogurt of your choosing. We like to use raisins for the eyes, but there are plenty of other options out there.
Cheesey Witch’s Brooms
These make a great little hors d’oeuvre is great for guest who may be coming over on Halloween or throughout the week. Best part is there are only three ingredients: cheese, pretzel sticks, and fresh chive.
First you’ll need to fold each slice of cheese and cut the fringes of the broom. This may be easier with a pair of scissors. Next, roll the cheese onto the pretzel. Finally, tie the cheese down with some chives. And you’re done!
