Today – Healthy Halloween Snacks – Pumpkin Patch Carrot Dippers
E is a huge fan of finger food (he loved yesterday’s Witches Fingers) and anything that involves dipping so for lunch today I went for a Halloween pumpkin twist on crudites and humous. It only took five minutes and E thought they were hilarious. I can’t remember where it was I first saw this idea so do forgive me for not crediting it properly.
Halloween Pumpkin Patch Carrot Dippers
First peel and slice a carrot. Snip some chives into about 1cm lengths and push one piece onto a cocktail stick, followed by a leaf of whatever greenery you have to hand. I used some flat leaf parsley but coriander leaves would be good as would some lettuce or rocket. Push the cocktail stick into the side of a carrot slice to look like a pumpkin stem and leaf. Do the same for each slice.
Spread hummus or your choice of dip across the bottom of a dish and use it to stand up your ‘pumpkins’ and let everyone dig in.
Caution: I know it’s stating the obvious but the cocktail sticks should be kept away from the littlies. Better safe than sorry people!
