Heathy Halloween Party Trays

Candy Corn Veggie Tray
It is that time of year when Halloween parties are in full swing.  For those of you hosting parties (or required to bring something to a party) that likely means you are trying to find fun and creative ways to offer festive halloween themed treats.  If you are like me you are likely also trying to make these offerings healthy.  Today's blog is here to offer a few creative ways to serve your guests.

Ghost Cheese and Cracker Tray
I had a blast creating the Halloween party treats.  The "candy corn veggie tray" was both brainstormed and executed rather quickly.  I can not say the same for the "ghost cheese and cracker tray".  The idea for the tray came rather quickly - however I was not able to carry out a successful design correspondingly.  Three attempts later this is what we have!  In case you were wondering what the previous designs looked like I have also posted those below.

The not so successful "ghost cheese and cracker tray" pics....

1 box of crackers of choice

Optional: peanut butter (to hold olives in place)

(Note: for the candy corn tray I layered the veggies with two layers and for the ghost I used peanut butter to hold the olives in.
