Recipe Tips
  • Special Extra
    Use pepper strips to make for the jack-o'-lantern's mouth. Or, make the mouth from the pepperoni-topped crackers. Use celery sticks to make the stem, leaving the leaves on a few of the celery sticks. No matter how you choose to decorate the jack-o'-lantern, you're sure to please even the hungriest snacker.
  • Add Variety with Different Vegetables
    An assortment of vegetables adds both interest and crunch to this tasty snack board. Include your favorite vegetables, such as sliced cucumbers, broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes and/or mini sweet peppers.
  • Make it Simple
    Pre-sliced cheeses, and prepared dips and spreads can be purchased from your supermarket. For a small gathering, check out the in-store salad bar where you can purchase small amounts of each item instead of buying an entire package of each. For added convenience, look for pre-cut vegetables in the produce section of your supermarket.
