You know those cute Halloween breakfast ideas you see on Pinterest? The ones that seem SO easy, then turn out to be as hard as convincing your three-year-old that it’ll be faster if you just buckle her carseat?
This is not one of them.
After testing out the idea, I have good news. These adorable Jack-o-lantern fruit cups are simple.
Hollow out an orange, cut a face, fill with fruit and shout, “Breakfast’s ready!”
What makes these jack-o-lantern fruit cups special
- Not many Halloween breakfasts are healthy. These are just fruit!
- It’s possible to carve the oranges ahead of time and fill them in the morning.
What you need to make jack-o-lantern fruit cups
- fresh fruit
- paring knife
How to make jack-o-lantern fruit cups
Cut a small slice off the bottom of your orange so it sits steady. Cut a larger slice off the top, where you’ll perform the excavation. Use a paring knife to loosen the orange pulp inside, then finish the job with a spoon.
Carve a couple of triangles, followed by a mouth and ta da! You’re ready to fill with fruit.
That’s all there is to it.
ps. If carving an orange seems like too much, try drawing a jack-o-lantern face with a Sharpie like we did for our Halloween pudding cups. And get the rest of our fun Halloween Food Ideas for Kids here!
