Party Fun Can Be Healthy Too!

Fun Vegetable and Cheese Trays

For  Halloween last year, my daughter and I thought it would be fun to use these plastic pumpkin decorating kits to make some cute  and healthy veggie and cheese tray decorations.  We used peppers for the veggies, but certainly oranges and apples would be fun for a fruit platter!

I cut carrots with my Pampered Chef veggie cutter.

I used cookie cutters to add Halloween shapes.  I made good use of the cheese scraps for the cheese burger sliders on the buffet.  I made the eyes above with the small end of a large piping tip.  It is helpful to push out the cheese dots to unclog the tip with a toothpick as you work.

  1. This is a great idea! Never thought of using a cookie cutter to make cheese more fun!

  2. ...and fruit and also you can cut tortilla shells, spray them with some healthy cooking oil and broil/toast in oven for healthy dips!
