Spooky Guacamole with Carrot Fingers

Halloween Parties! What costume are you going to wear? We had small Halloween Cooking Party with parents and kids. We all had so much fun. Check out what they made!



Recipe for Spooky Guacamole with Carrot Fingers


Ingredients:

For Guacamole:
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 6 cherry tomatoes,  halved or 1 ripe tomato diced
  •  juice of ¼ of lime
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and minced (optional)
  • ¼ cup diced red onion (optional)
  • ¼ cup diced jalapeno (optional)
  • pinch of ground cumin (optional)
For carrot fingers:
  • 5 Carrots, (knobby ones work best)
  • a little bit of peanut butter 
  • 5 sliced almonds (for finger nails)

Procedure:
Guacamole: Combine all ingredients in pilon (mortar and pestle) or bowl. Mash until desired consistency is achieved.

Carrot fingers: Take 4 long carrots and 1 shorter one (cut off carrot tops), with a sharp paring knife, carve a location for the almond  to sit (finger nail). Using peanut butter as glue, fasten the sliced almond onto the carrot finger. Insert all five fingers into the guacamole like a hand rising out. Serve immediately or chilled if preferred.
