Haha! Don't be a smart Alec....I heard you say, "a fruit and veggie tray!"
Yes, a fruit and veggie tray would be simpler, but this platter is much more beautiful and way more fun to eat! Plus this yumminess comes with dipping sauces! The basic fruit tray doesn't come with dipping sauce... Imagine taking these beauties to a Halloween potluck! Impress everyone with your melon balling and knife skills...It'll be so worth the extra effort to thread these onto fun picks. By the way, if your'e wondering, I got these super cute and festive 5" Orange Skull picks online from Pick On Us.
I used traditional Orange and Black for this platter but feel free to use any color combination that screams Halloween to you. Do all fruit kabobs, or all veggies, the choice is yours. Happy Halloween!
