Jack O' Lantern Fruit Cup - Halloween Recipes

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Halloween recipe with a healthy twist and good tasting too. The kids and teens at your Halloween party will slurp up these fruit cups.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 6-8 oranges
  • 2 cans fruit cocktail
  • 1 can pineapple chunks
  • 1 sharpie marker; black


Cut the tops off of the oranges, as if it was a pumpkin you were carving. Scoop out the orange being careful not to rip the peel. Cut up the oranges to use with the fruit mixture. Using the sharpie marker, draw jack o’ lantern faces on the oranges. Set them aside to dry.

In a large bowl combine the fruit cocktail, pineapple chunks and the orange pieces. Scoop fruit mixture into the oranges and chill for at least one hour before serving.

Great Idea, and Lots of Fun!, Member NancyL.

I made these tonight (the night before Halloween) for a meeting at my house, and all the attendees (all adults) were RAVING about these little treats. I had a few left over and people were practically fighting with each other to take home the last few to their kids. And all it took was a bag of oranges and a couple of cans of fruit. I'll definitely do this again.
