Halloween “Fruit Pumpkins”

To celebrate Halloween, I assembled “fruit pumpkins” from my Halloween board to bring to choir rehearsal. My church’s choir likes to make a party full of snacks out of our fifteen minute break.

This is a no-cook, no-bake recipe. It is all assembly, so much that I would almost rather call it a “craft”. The pin is labeled as Healthy Halloween Snacks on my Halloween board. The pin leads to a long website list of Halloween ideas, only twenty-five percent of which are snacks.

My choir friends were delighted.
