Witch’s fingers

For all the junk your kids will inevitably be eating this Halloween, here’s a hauntingly healthy alternative.


  • 1 pound whole carrots
  • 8 oz. cream cheese or Neufchatel
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1/2 cup medium salsa
  • Sliced almonds


  1. Mix cream cheese and sour cream together into a smooth mixture.
  2. Add salsa, mix and pour into a festive Halloween bowl.
  3. Peel five carrots. Cut five tops off the carrots to make four fingers and one thumb.
  4. Use a dab of the vegetable dip to glue one sliced almond onto the top of each carrot to make fingernails.
  5. Gently stand the fingers and thumb in the dip. Serve this dip with more carrots, celery or any other seasonal vegetable.
