Halloween Recipe: Carrot-Finger Dip
In 2005 after hurricane Katrina there was not many places around here for the kids to trick or treat so I threw a Halloween party. This recipe was one of every ones favorite things I added a spider ring to mine and it was so cute! The only problem that I had was keeping the carrots in there and not on every ones plates lol. So I made up several extra fingers and placed them on plate around the dip so everyone could dip their own fingers.
You will need:
4 long carrots
1 medium carrot
softened cream cheese
To prepare them, just fill a serving bowl with your favorite vegetable dip. Wash and peel 4 long carrots for fingers and 1 medium carrot for a thumb.
With a paring knife (a parent's job), cut a flat, shallow notch in the tip of each carrot. Then use a dab of dip or softened cream cheese to glue a sliced-almond fingernail atop each notch.
Stick the fingers in the dip, as shown, and serve with plenty of peeled baby carrots for dipping.
