Avocado Toast Tips & Tricks

Try a sweet version

To switch up your Halloween snacks, try making a witch avocado toast with sweet ingredients. Use chocolate chips or blueberries for the eyes. For the nose, use a candy corn or a broken pretzel stick. For the mouth, use a piece of strawberry. The hat can be made with a large strawberry slice or triangle cracker, while the hair can be recreated with chocolate shavings. You could even incorporate Halloween candy or edible candy eyes into the design.

Use cream cheese instead

For another kid-friendly take on these Halloween recipes, replace the avocado with cream cheese. This works especially well if you want to serve the toasts for Halloween breakfast.

Make it a meal

Although these avocado toasts are delicious on their own, you can also build a themed meal around them. On Halloween night, try serving them with other creepy dishes—like our eyeball meatballs—and mouthwatering finger foods, like crispy sweet potato chips and deviled eggs. Finish it off with Halloween desserts, like cupcakes and, of course, candy. Halloween dinner has never tasted so good!
