Edible Halloween Craft: Ranch-O-Lantern Platter

Edible Halloween Craft: Ranch-O-Lantern Platter

All you need is a paring knife and a few extra minutes to put together this fun, seasonal veggie dish that’ll have your family forgetting about sweets and, instead, crunching on carrots! There are just a few simple steps:

  1. Cut the tops off clean, washed bell peppers (colors are your choice, of course).
  2. Use the paring knife to free the center section of the pepper and pull it out, making room for your veggies.
  3. Then cut out the faces, just like you would on a pumpkin. While we recommend an adult do all the cutting, this is a great time to get the kids’ input on the expressions and features of your peppers. Getting them involved will only help make them more excited about the end result.
  4. Fill peppers with a selection of your family’s favorite vegetables, and arrange on a plate with some ranch for dipping.

Tip: When you’ve eaten all the veggies out of your ranch-o-lanterns, you can slice and eat them, or save them for use in another dish.

Have fun and enjoy!
