Prep Time: 10 min.

I’ve made quite a few variations of skulls over the years for Halloween. They are great to add to healthy platters, lunchboxes, appetizers or even spooky cocktails and mocktails.

What you need


1. Slice the cucumber.

2. Make a symmetrical indent for the jaw. I used a cookie cutter I had, but you can trim this by hand.

3. Use the metal straw to shape the holes for the eyes.

4. To make the teeth, cut two small v-shapes in the jaw.

5. Make a few turns with a toothpick to make the nose.

6. Serve.
