Trick or Treat Halloween Blog Hop


Halloween is just 2 weeks from today and my kids are already busy planning their costumes and Anticipation is running high at my house. My kids love every Halloween themed lunch these days and I am excited that Bento Bloggers & Friends is having a Halloween Blog Hop today to give everyone some ideas for Halloween lunches :)

Read through my post and at the end click the Blog Hop button to see what my friend Rina packed for lunch!

But first, here is what I packed for lunch today in our yubo lunchbox:


I made a spooky haunted house filled with chocolate spread and decorated with melted chocolate and caramel window shutters. The witch is flying into the night lit up by cheese cracker stars and of course a moon. Also packed are vanilla yogurt with a frozen peach yogurt pumpkin in the middle and a scary purple radish.


The yogurt and frozen pumpkin are fun to make and very easy! My friend Michelle posted a great tutorial on her page for pumpkin shaped frozen pumpkin yogurt  HERE. I opted for peaches to color my yogurt since my kids have a food dye intolerance but cannot wait to try pumpkin yogurt ones, yum! I simply bought a pumpkin shaped ice cube tray at my local Dollar Tree and then added plain vanilla yogurt and about 4 slices of frozen peaches into my food processor. 


I mixed it until light orange and filled it into the ice cube tray. I popped one yogurt pumpkin out this morning and added it to the yogurt. The yogurt ice cube will melt but normally keeps it's shape until lunch time and will keep the yogurt cold in the meantime :)



I found these colorful purple radishes at a local farm and could not resist carving them since their purple skin was just perfect for Halloween. I just used a vegetable knife and carved a face in the radish and lifted off the purple skin to reveal the white inside :)


I hope my kids will enjoy this spooky Halloween lunch and I hope you enjoyed it, too!
