Fun Halloween Food Art Ideas
Looking for some fun Halloween food art ideas to bring into your home this year?
We have two easy and healthy food art ideas that I am going to teach you step-by-step how to assemble. They literally take just minutes and you can even get the kiddos involved!
They love that!
I also have some fun links I’m sharing to even more Halloween food art ideas around the web. And they all use California grown products!
Let’s get started!
This Halloween food art features, cucumbers, olives, and radish.
Slice a cucumber about 1/4” thick.
Spread a small dollop of cream cheese on top.
Halve a black olive lengthwise, I used extra large. One side is the body. The other side, slice into 6 equal slivers, these are the legs!
Arrange the olive pieces into a spider form. Easy Peasy!
Slice a radish and cut into triangle shape pieces for the eyes.
Attach the eyes with a small amount of cream cheese on the backside so it sticks.
This Halloween food art features prunes and almonds.
Tint your cream cheese with green food coloring and stir to combine. Top a cracker with a dollop of the cream cheese.
Place a prune on top of the cream cheese mixture.
Add slivered almonds for the legs and break another one in fourths for the eyes.
That’s one scary dude!
But not scary enough to keep the kids’ hands off of them!
I highly encourage you to make both of these halloween food art ideas.
They go together like spiders and bugs!
