These cute guac dips are fun for little ghosts and ghouls to make and eat before they trick-or-treat. Plus, they're full of healthy fats that do a body, or a goblin, good!

Spooky Guacamole Cups

  • Halve and pit 2 avocados. Scoop out the avocado flesh, reserving shells.
  • Put avocado flesh in a zip-top plastic bag with the juice of 1 lime. Seal bag and squish with your hands to mash it together. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon into reserved shells. Level and smooth tops with a butter knife. Decorate with toppings, using one of the following ideas (or your own). Enjoy with tortilla chips or fresh veggie dippers.

4 Halloween Guacamole Cup Ideas

1. Nummy Mummy

Cut a flour tortilla into ¼- to ½-inch strips. Toast in a dry skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Trim and arrange strips as bandages over your guac cup, leaving a space for eyes. Use black beans for eyes.

2. Day of the Dead Mask

Use halved black olives for eyes and corn kernels for pupils and teeth. Use black beans for nostrils. Arrange small pieces of red and yellow bell peppers in a mosaic pattern around the eyes. Nestle halved cucumber slices at noon, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.

3. Funky Frankenstein

Mash 1 tablespoon black beans and spread over top third of avocado half for hair. Add green bell pepper pieces for eyebrows and nose. Crisscross a few cheddar cheese shreds  for a scar. Use black olive slices stuffed with white corn kernels for eyes. Add black olive pieces for pupils and neck bolts and a black bean for a mouth.

4. Wicked Witch

Use black beans for eyes and cheddar cheese shreds for hair. Add a blue tortilla chip for a hat. Use a tiny pickle for a nose and red bell pepper strip for a mouth.
