Fruit Jack-O-Lantern (Tutorial)

I know I've already mentioned this, but I kind of LOVE Halloween. I will be making a Halloween themed dinner before we go trick or treating. One of the things I pre-made, is Fruit Jack-o-lanterns. They are adorable, healthy, and so easy to make!

Fruit Jack-O-Lantern Tutorial


What you'll need:

Grapefruit- however many you'd like to make
Fruit- grapes, strawberry halves, chopped cantaloupe, etc.
Knife- I prefer a paring knife

Cut the top off of the grapefruit

 Use the knife to cut around the fruit inside and loosen it. Scoop fruit out with your hand or a spoon.

Cut a very small amount off of the bottom. Do not fully cut through the skin, just cut enough to let the grapefruit stand level.

Carve a jack-o-lantern face as desired.

Fill with fruit.

Ready to serve. The strawberry sticking out of the mouth was a happy accident!

I have done this with Oranges and small mandarin oranges also, but It is easiest with the grapefruit. Plus you can fit more fruit. inside. Thanks for reading!

Happy Halloween!
