50 Min


No-Cook or Other


small to med. round pumpkin
1 or 2 lb
block cheese - cubed - cheddar, montery jack, pepper jack, colby
1 pkg
bologna, or other cooked meats - cubed - ex. smoked turkey
1 pkg
cherry tomatoes - (opt)
1 pkg
button mushrooms - cleaned - (opt)
1 jar(s)
cocktail onions - (opt)
1 jar(s)
small hot peppers - (opt)

Directions Step-By-Step

First draw or paint a face on the pumpkin. Lightly mark the 'hairline' area around the face.

I dont know why you couldn't carve a face into the pumkin and use a tealight candle.

Push a block of cheese, and bologna, & veggie, if using onto party tooth picks, or bamboo screwers. Leaving enough stick to push into pumpkin so that its firmly in place. Continue to make hair with filled tooth picks.
Place finshed pumpkin on a pretty plate and set on your Boo-fet (buffet) table with assorted crackers for your Halloween guests !
