Somewhere along the way, we've gotten the idea that Halloween has to be about sugar, sugar and more sugar, but these healthier Halloween party treats prove that quite the opposite can be true. Spooky and kooky fruit kebabs (that you can decorate with any Halloween-inspired face from the dark corners of your imagination) are easy to put together and just as fun to decorate. And if you happen to be a parent, this is just one more way to trick your kids into eating their daily servings of fruit.
You are so welcome.
Using a melon baller tool, make round balls of cantaloupe. Cut the kiwis into squares of similar size.
Assemble the fruit kebabs onto the small wooden skewers — cantaloupe, marshmallow and kiwi. Put them in the refrigerator for an hour to chill.
Melt the black candy melts in the microwave until smooth. Pour into the piping bag with small, round piping tip.
With a paper towel, dab off any moisture on the fronts of the fruit kebabs. Pipe black candy melt faces on the fronts of the cantaloupe pumpkins, marshmallow ghosts and Frankenstein kiwis. If using icing eyes on the Frankenstein kiwis, apply a tiny dot of candy melt to the kiwi before adding the eyes.
Arrange the kebabs on a tray or plate, and chill them for an hour before serving. These are best if served within 24 hours of preparation.
