Favorite Halloween themed treat
Personal Pizza with Olive Spiders: Kick off your Halloween lunch adventure with a personal pizza that's not for the faint-hearted. Transform your store bought mini pizza into a spooky masterpiece by using sliced black olives as creepy-crawly spiders. Slice the olives into thin strips for legs and place one halved olive in the center as the body. This is a delightful and slightly eerie treat for your taste buds.
Mandarin Orange Pumpkins with Celery Stems: Infuse a burst of Vitamin C into your lunchbox with a mandarin orange artfully crafted to resemble a miniature pumpkin. Peel them and add a small piece of celery as the stem on top (using the leafy upper stalks works great). These small pumpkin look-alikes are certain to bring joy to your palate with their citrusy sweetness.
Ritz Cracker Spiders: For a snack with a creepy-crawly twist, craft Ritz cracker spiders. Spread peanut butter on two Ritz crackers, sandwich them together, and use mini chocolate chips for the eyes. Attach pretzel sticks as legs to complete the spider look. These petite arachnids are a tasty, fun addition to your lunch.
Banana Ghosts: No Halloween is complete without a visit from a ghost. To make these adorable and healthy lunchbox addition, use a wavy chopper to give the bottom of the banana (using the top portion gives the best look) a ghostly shape. Add chocolate chips for eyes and a mouth, attaching with a small dab of peanut butter. These charming banana ghosts are a festive and nutritious addition to your lunchtime celebrations.
Popcorn with optional Spider Rings:
Add a spooky surprise to the snack everyone loves. Prepare your popcorn according to the directions on the box, and adorn with spider ring decorations for a snack that is sure to shock!
