Spooky season is upon us! With Halloween right around the corner, you may find yourself surrounded by tricks and treats, particularly treats. Between costume party desserts, the candy bowl at work, and the kids’ trick-or-treating goodies, we think it’s time to celebrate the season with some healthy Halloween snacks.
We promise these bell pepper jack-o-lanterns are easier than they look. If we could do it, anyone can do it. Simply cut off the top of the bell pepper and dispose of the seeds. Use a paring knife to carve out a face, just like you would on a pumpkin (minus the mess). Slice up your favorite veggies into long sticks – we used celery, bell pepper, and carrots. Place the vegetable sticks inside the bell pepper and serve with your favorite dip for a cute and creative way to serve this crudités appetizer.
Not sure about carving out your bell peppers? Try using plastic cups instead and draw on the faces with a marker. We made a carrot stick jack-o-lantern, a cauliflower ghost, and a celery and black olive Frankenstein.
All of these ideas are incredibly easy and super adorable. They’re sure to be a hit at your next gathering. Even the kiddos won’t be able to keep their hands off of these fun and not-so-scary treats.
