Delicious and Adorable Halloween Guacamole Cups
We love finding healthy and delicious food for a holiday that is famous for being the most unhealthy of them all! With all the candy and junk food kids get, it will actually be welcoming to have a little veggies for a snack on Halloween. Especially if it looks as cute and dip-able as these do!
One of my favorite things about this Halloween recipe is that it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients or kitchen skills. They are fast and easy to make, but so darn cute. And the guacamole is so flavorful too- these darling Draculas will have kids and adults swarming to the snack table.
Ingredients You’ll Need to Make This Halloween Guacamole:
- Onion Powder
- Salt & Pepper
- Blue Corn Chips
- String Cheese
- Red Bell Pepper
- Sliced Olives
How to Make Easy Halloween Guacamole Cups:
- Remove the avocado from the shell. Carefully slice the avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop the avocado from the shell. Reserve the shells- those will be the cups for your vampire guacamole cups!
- Mix up your guacamole. Add the avocado to a medium bowl with the lime juice, garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mash to desired consistency. Divide the guacamole among your shells and smooth out evenly.
- Prepare your toppings. Cut the string cheese into rounds and cut thin slivers from the bell pepper for fangs.
- Create your guacamole vampires! Top each cup with two string cheese ‘eyes’. Top with an olive slice, or if desired, cut small rounds out of the end of the olive for the middle of the eye. Add the bell pepper fangs. Break off the tip of a corn chip for the hair line, and arrange additional chips for the bat wings.
Tips and Suggestions:
If making these ahead of time, make the guacamole and smooth it into the avocado shells. Then, press a sheet of plastic wrap onto the guacamole. Prep the other ingredients and add it to the the guacamole cup just before serving.
Instead of string cheese rounds, you can also use a couple dollops of sour cream.
Not Enough Guac?
If you don’t have enough guacamole to fill your avocado halves, you can spread a layer of refried beans into the bottom of the shell before topping with guacamole. You can even add a thin layer of sour cream or greek yogurt mixed with taco seasonings for mini 7-layer dip cups!
