Parsley or Cilantro Leaves
Black Tortilla Chips or Apples to Dip

Slice carrots into discs and slice a small section of the chive and place the toothpick into the center of the chive and then the parsley or cilantro leaf and stick into the carrot to resemble a pumpkin.

Spooky Spider Web Eggs:
1 Cup Blueberries (Frozen)
1 tsp. Mayo
1 tsp. Lemon Juce
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp Betsy’s Best Cashew Cardamom Butter
Directions: Hard Boil the Eggs (4 Eggs + 1 Cup of Blueberries frozen). Place eggs in a post and cover with water. Add frozen blueberries and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 min at a boil and remove from heat and cover pot for 10 min. Remove eggs while saving the blueberry water and place in a bowl to cool until you can touch them. Allow to soak in the water for at least 2 hours or up to overnight depending on how dark you want the color to be on the outside of the egg. Remove from water and feel the shell off the egg
Deviled Egg Filling: Slice the egg in half and remove the yolks and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork and add the rest of the ingredients and combine until smooth. Stuff egg with mixture if serving right away. (* Because avocado browns quickly it is recommended to make the stuffing for the egg right before serving to maintain the bright green color).
Extra Spooky Option: For an extra spooky add on turn these into a spooky spider on a web by adding a black avocado sliced in half and then cutting legs out of another avocado to create a spider.
