HALLOWEEN TREAT: Snack-O-Lanterns Fruit Cups

I've been looking for some new activities, recipes and such to help spice up the holiday's for my daughters. Things have been a bit rough lately and I want  to make sure they have the best Holiday Season yet!

I found a super simple recipe that puts a new twist on fruit cups with a Halloween touch. These little guys are fun and festive and kids love 'em! (Grown-ups do too!) Snack-O-Lanterns are perfect for any Halloween themed party and are sure to be a conversation starter. They're also great for a quick festive snack for the kiddo's.

You will need:

2 or more fresh fruits of your choice
(strawberries, peaches, mango, etc.)
Sharp kitchen knife
Plastic spoons or forks

To make Snack-O-Lanterns you simply:

  • Slice the top off of the oranges and hollow them out with a spoon. Do not throw away the top piece.
  • Dice a bit of the orange into cubes and set them to the side.
  • Dice up the other fruits into cubes as well and mix together with orange cubes. You can also use pre-made fruit cups from the grocery store.
  • Carve faces into the oranges to make them look like Jack-O-Lanterns.
  • Add the fruit the orange bowl.
  • With the knife slice a hole in the center of the top piece and slide the handle of plastic silverware through the hole and place into orange bowl to finish off the Snack-O-Lanterns.
All that's left to do now is serve them and watch as your guests eat 'em up!!! (Of course you'll be eating one too!)

Grow yourself a Fruit Salad Tree!
You can grow 5 fruits on 1 tree!! How cool is that?

  1. This is really cute! I think it would work for year round too, because it doesn't have to be a jack-o-lantern cut could just be a smiley face. Or even without a face at all, it's still fun and cute for kids.

    1. I agree! I didn't think of cutting out different decorations! Easter would work great as well! You can cut out designs and have an orange egg!! Thx for the neat idea!


I'd love to hear from you...
