Broomsticks and Ghosts- String Cheese Style With Cheesy Pumpkins
What do you get when you take a piece of string cheese and a pretzel? A witches broomstick of course. Or for a hauntingly fun variation, by simply adding to raisins to that same string cheese and you have a bootiful ghost ready for consumption. Form soft cheese into balls, and then carve out the pumpkin lines with a toothpick. Now, insert a pretzel as the stem and enjoy with your favorite crackers! These are sure to be a pumpkin pleaser.

Mummy I’m Thirsty
When is a drink not a drink? When it’s been mummified of course. Simply take your bottled beverage of choice, I used bottles of water but any bottled drink will work, wrap in gauze, add two edible eyes, because everything is better with edible eyes and you won’t be able to help falling in love with brew.
Mandarin Pumpkins and Banana Ghosts
You’ll have the biggest pump-grin on your face when you see how easy these are. Simply take your favorite brand of Clementines, and a small piece of celery and you have an a-peeling pumpkin. These ghosts are just as easy-simply cut a banana in half-add two chocolate chips or raisins for eyes and Boo-you have ghosts! To keep your banana ghosts from turing brown, soak in lemon juice before decorating. This trick will also work on the Apple Bites.
Great grinning ghosts these Apple Bites will make you smile- especially when you see how easy they are.
- Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth.
- Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of sunflower butter, Nutella or Peanut Butter
- Place Almond slices on the top of the mouth for the teeth.
- Place 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth for the tongue.
- Glue each eye above the mouth with a dab of the filling

A creepy carrot hand sticking out of your vegetable dip is the perfect way to dress it up for Halloween! Simply use the dip to glue almond slices on give your fingers the finishing touch and you will have created something they can really sink their teeth into. Serve with carrots, celery or carrots.
