Anotherlunch.com has a fantastic tutorial on how to make this fun Halloween bento lunch. For my taste, this is too much trouble for lunch (and there's no telling what it'd look like when they finally opened up their box to eat it!), but I'd totally do this for dinner!
Halloweeny top row treats:
- Frankenkiwi (or Kiwistein, if you rather!)
- witch's cauldron of spooktacular confections
- ghostly bananas
bottom row tricks:
- string cheese ghosts
- hot dog mummies
- zombie remains
These mini-sized hot dog mummies are hot dogs cut in half and wrapped in crescent rolls.
Explanation of Zombie Remains: the mini mummies needed a side of
Fizzle sizzle! Boil, toil and trouble! This witch's cauldron is brewing up a real mess! Cauldron contents: trail mix (pretzels, nuts and dried fruit) topped with two gummy worms and a chocolate eyeball. Yum!
And for the pièce de résistance! My not-at-all frightful, totally delightful Kiwistein!
To fashion a kiwi Frankenstein I just sliced a little off the sides of the kiwi to make it more square-ish, peeled most of the fuzz off (leaving just enough for Frank's hairdo). The eyes are the same icing eyes I used for the goon, but I used my food safe markers to color the whites a monsterish yellow with red squiggles for a blood-shot look. :) So easy! The mouth and bolts are both made with halloween sprinkles! The bolts are tombstone shaped sprinkles! Teehee! These little kiwi guys are so fun to make. :)
