Halloween Pumpkin Patch Carrot Dippers

Today – Healthy Halloween Snacks – Pumpkin Patch Carrot Dippers
Healthy Halloween Snacks - Pumpkin Patch Carrot DippersE 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!

  1. Aw, I love these, so cute! Healthy too. Only thing is my two are fussy little bleeders and wouldn’t touch humous or any dips.
    Ah well, me and the husband LOVE humous, so we’ll make them for US and they can join in the scoffing if they like! 🙂
