So, here’s what our Halloween tin consisted of (clockwise starting upper left):
Cheese pumpkin, fruity bat, ghost banana, worms in the mud, monster eyeballs, and witch fingers!
Here’s what I did:
- pumpkin: sliced a piece of cheese a little thick; then carved a pumpkin from the slice
- bat: took a grape fruit leather (any dark color would work) and carved out the shape of a bat; used a couple of large circle sprinkles for eyes
- ghost: see directions in this post (this one turned out much better than the first go ’round)
- worms in mud: one hot dog cut into long strips; then boiled in a little water in the microwave until the strips started to curl; placed in baked beans (mud)
- monster eyeballs: green olives
- witch fingers: use a little cream cheese to stick an almond slice to a baby carrot
The lunch was such a hit and I was quite pleased with how it turned out! Usually when I think of fun Halloween foods, only sugary ones come to mind. So, I was especially pleased that I managed it with no candy or desserty treats, as I think there will be plenty of those this week anyway!
What fun foods do you make for Halloween?
