Healthy Halloween Recipes – Melon Brain

For those of you who have little kids, instead of carving a pumpkin, or in addition to doing so, make a melon brain. Kids love it.

Made from nothing more than a small, round seedless watermelon, this spooky cerebral creation is bound to turn heads.

What you’ll need:

•    1 small seedless watermelon

How to make it:


1.    Use a vegetable peeler to remove the entire green rind, exposing the inner white rind.

2.    Slice off the bottom of the melon to create a flat base that will keep it from rolling. With a toothpick, outline squiggly furrows that resemble the folded surface of a brain.

3.    Finally, carve narrow channels along the tracings with a sharp paring knife (a parent’s job) to expose the pink fruit beneath the rind.
