For these simple recipes for Halloween, it’s perfectly acceptable to play with your food. Therefore, I transformed fruit into pumpkins, ghosts and wicked witch warts to create a ‘fruitcuterie’ board. It’s a fun and festive addition to breakfast on Halloween morning, kids parties or just to get your kids to eat more fruit.
So, maybe I just made up ‘fruitcuterie.’ However, it makes sense when fruit and charcuterie come together. Either way, I love charcuterie style food boards for parties, gatherings and weekend brunch. For instance, food boards are easy to create and serve for family movie night, game night with friends, or date night with your ‘boo!’ Here’s one I did for breakfast and my kids loved it.
Fruitcuterie Halloween Recipe
What you Need:
- Mandarin Oranges
- Celery Stalk
- Chocolate Chips
- Moon Drop Grapes
- Mini Charcuterie Boards
A few weeks ago, I found these mini charcuterie boards on sale at Hobby Lobby for $2.40 each. So, I bought 8 for $20. They are the perfect size for serving appetizers or individual charcuterie boards at parties. I couldn’t wait for the first holiday to use them.
Ghosts, Pumpkins, & Witches, Oh My
While I am not sure you can call this a recipe, it is a healthy treat that you can serve to kids in October. After assembling the orange pumpkins and banana ghosts, simple arrange with moon drop grapes onto mini charcuterie boards. Voila… you have a fruitcuterie!
What you Do to Make Orange Pumpkins:
- First, peel oranges.
- Secondly, cut apart the leafy end of a celery stalk into 1 1/2″ stems.
- Then, press the celery into the center of the orange.
What you Do to Make Banana Ghosts:
- First, peel bananas.
- Secondly, cut bananas into two parts.
- Then, press 3 chocolate chips into the top of a banana to form the eyes and mouth.
