Jack-o’-Lantern Oranges

This is a great way to get the kids to eat nourishing fruit during the candy-laden Halloween season. They can even help cut up the apples and grapes with plastic knives and decide how they want their fancy orange to look!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 8 small navel oranges
  • 1 small apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup halved seedless red grapes
  • Slivered almonds and whole cloves

Directions

  • Choose which side of each orange will be the jack-o'-lantern's face; cut a thin slice from the bottom of each so that it rests flat. Cut another small slice from the top. Spoon out pulp. Chop pulp and combine with apple and grapes; set aside.
  • Cut faces as desired; decorate with cloves and almonds. Spoon fruit mixture into jack-o'-lanterns.

    Great idea for kid friendly snacking. I would make these year round and just mix up the face decorations.

    What a great idea! My granddaughter loved them. Since it lists only almonds and cloves for face-decorating, I'd say the teeth are made from almonds.

    I haven't made these yet, but, they are so adorable and healthy for you, too! What a cute idea!

    These were easy to make and a huge hit! I think they are so clever and cute. I'd like to know what was used for the teeth on the one pumpkin. I cut the tip off candy corn and kind of mushed them in the opening.
