Healthy Halloween: Haunted Breakfast Fun and healthy break from Halloween sweets.
Eerie Eyeballs For Two Eyes: 2 Apple rings 1 Dried Apricot 1 Raisin
For each pair of eyes, gently flatten two dried apple rings with the palm of your hand. Slice a dried apricot through the middle so that you end up with two circular halves. Press a half, sticky side down, onto the center of an apple ring, covering the hole. For pupils, use kitchen scissors to cut a raisin in two, and press the halves, sticky side down, onto the apricots.
Ghost Toasts White Bread (1 slice per ghost) Whipped cream cheese Rasins
For each, toast a slice of white bread and then cut a ghost shape from it. You can do this freehand using a knife, or you can use a gingerbread-girl cookie cutter. When the cutouts have cooled, spread on a generous coating of whipped cream cheese. For eyes and mouths, add raisins.
Here's Mine: I cut the ghosts out of the bread first and then toasted them. My daughter doesn't love cream cheese so I used 'Smart Balance'. she really enjoyed the surprise this morning!
Cut a flat, shallow notch in the tip of each carrot. Put a dab of dip or softened cream cheese to 'glue' a sliced-almond fingernail atop each notch. Serve with extra baby carrots, black olives, bell peppers, etc for dipping.
Cheese-Finger Food Mozzarella string cheese Green bell pepper Cream cheese
Wearing plastic gloves or sandwich bags over your hands to keep the cheese as smudge-free as possible, use a paring knife to cut each string in half and then carve a shallow area for a fingernail just below the rounded end of each half.
Mark the joint right below the nail as well as the knuckle joint by carving out tiny horizontal wedges of cheese, as pictured.
For the fingernails, slice a green bell pepper into 3/8-inch-wide strips. Set the strips skin side down on your work surface and trim the pulp so that it's about half as thick. Then cut the strips into ragged-topped nail shapes and stick them in place at the ends of the fingers with dabs of cream cheese.
Here's mine. I used Greek Cucumber Garlic Dip. I sort of laid them back a bit since my dip wasn't plaster thick.
Apple Bites & Tombstone Eggs Fun and healthy break from Halloween sweets.
