Halloween does not need to be filled of all things candy. We all know the kids will be throwing themselves onto all the candy that is handed out. So I like to make healthier options at home. Using Oranges and carving out a Jack-O-Lantern, makes this a playful after school snack.
Halloween Fruit Cups
What you will need:
A pairing knife
Items you want to fill the oranges with: apples, strawberries, grapes, pineapple, orange slices, blueberries, Candy, nuts...the possibilities are endless.
Start off by cutting off the top of your orange.
Next you are going to use your knife to cut out the fruit.
Then using your fingers, gently pull out the fruit.
Slice up the fruit you would like to put inside.
Add your fruit to the "pumpkin orange". The citrus keeps the fruit from browning.
I cut the rind off of one of the apples and pushed it through the top of the orange to make a stem.
You can keep them in the fridge up to 24 hours before you serve them.
See how cute they are!
