Orange Jack-O-Lanterns Filled With Fruit Recipe
Recipe type: Halloween Holiday
Cuisine: Dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3
  • • 3 Oranges (in this case I used Grapefruit Oranges)
  • • ½ cup Blackberries
  • • ½ cup Blueberries
  • • ½ cup Strawberries (sliced)
  1. Rinse all fruit. Dry.
  2. Using a straight edged knife on your grapefruit orange, turn knife inward at an angle while making a complete circle. This will release the top of your grapefruit orange. Remove and set top aside.
  3. Begin to remove the inside of the grape fruit orange by using a small spoon.
  4. Place the grapefruit orange juice and pulp into a small bowl. You can save it and serve as a refreshing drink next to your treats!
  5. Once the grapefruit orange is empty, use a small knife to cut out your jack-o-lantern face! Be creative. You can carve square eyes, triangle eyes, a smile,
  6. or big teeth! Have fun!
  7. Slice the very top from 3 strawberries. Use this as a garnish on top of your orange jack-o-lantern! You can secure it with a toothpick, or a dab of honey.
  8. Slice the strawberries into quarters and then in half again.
  9. Evenly distribute the blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries into each jack-o-lantern. Use a toothpick or tiny spoon to serve. Your family, friends, and children will love these friendly Halloween treats!

  • I never would have thought of this, but this is a great Halloween idea. Thanks for the nice idea.

  • I’ve thought of doing this because those pumpkins are kind of difficult to carve.

  • Creative presentation! Fun for family and guests.

  • I no longer celebrate halloween. The kids are grown and moved on. The day is really about them.

  • These are so cute and easy!

  • This is such a cute healthy idea!

  • I love this idea! Presentation is marvelous any time of year! Bravo! I love this orange into jack-o-lantern design.

  • Oh this is so cute, I also think it would help encourage kids to eat fresh fruit.

  • These are really cute. This would be a great thing for my granddaughter and I to make together

  • How fun!

  • This is so clever and cute and healthy. I cant wait to try it with my grandkids.

  • Using fruit is a good idea. I’d add some of the orange slices in there too.

  • Love this idea!! So simple and a great centerpiece for the table!!

  • What a cute dessert bowl to have at your church if you are having a hobo stew night. What is hobo stew you might ask, everyone brings a can of vegetables or a fresh vegetable and one person is picked to bring the meat (no it may not be beef meat, if could be rabbit or chicken or lamb, whatever the person decides), then the church makes a stew with all the ingredients brought in. Next all but a couple grown ups staying at the church to watch the stew as it cooks, go out on a hayride. They sing hymns, tell stories of faith and such. Then after the hayride everyone comes back for hobo stew. The preacher tells a story about a man who was a hobo, jumping trains/riding the rails from town to town looking for work during the depression and how this man who was down and out shared the story of Jesus Christ and what he gave for us sinners to others riding the rails. How this man brought many to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. So, these little desserts would be a nice bonus after a sometimes not so great stew, and after a great night of Christian fellowship.
