Spooky Fruit Skewers: Healthy Halloween TreatsElizabeth Stark
Let’s face it, Halloween can be a pretty unhealthy holiday. For kids, the name of the game is clear — candy, candy, candy. While no one wants to be a spoil sport, offering up a few healthy treats is a great way to balance out all that sugar. That’s where these festive Halloween fruit skewers come in. Orange, purple, and black fruits fit right in with the colors of the day, and the fresh fruit flavors taste wonderful. This simple, refreshing, and spooky treat might just be the hit of the party!
Halloween Fruit Skewers
makes 12 skewers
1/2 pint large blueberries
1/2 pint blackberries
1/2 cup seedless black grapes
1/2 cup seedless red grapes
1 – 2 oranges, sectioned
12 bamboo skewers
Peel and section the orange. Pierce lengthwise with the skewer and move to the top. Next add a red grape, blackberry, black grape, and three blueberries. Repeat.
If making these ahead, be sure and wrap tight and refrigerate, as the oranges dry out easily.
Feel free to sub fruits, add dried fruit like raisins and prunes, and to make up your own pattern.
