Corn Dracula Halloween Lunch

Vampire bento lunch
Year 2, Week 8: Corn Dracula Lunch.  Nothing says "Halloween" like Count Dracula.  Well, thats not exactly true, loads of candy says "Halloween" pretty well also.  While I like to keep my daughter's school lunches pretty healthy I also love a good bag of candy.  Every good parent knows that a child's full bag of candy by day turns into a parent's personal treat stash at night!  It's not stealing, it's getting repaid for all the candy we've bought them over the past year, right?

Until the big night comes, there is lots of fun food to be made.  The ideas in this meal will work well for lunches, parties, or just snacks with friends!  I got the idea for the "Corn Dracula" from a dad blogger friend of mine over at Designer Daddy.  He also makes and sells some fun Halloween designs on t-shirts.  Pick one up HERE.  I made this lunch in an Easy Lunch Boxes container and also used a Lunchbox Love Halloween note.

This lunch is also part of a Halloween Lunch Blog Hop today.  The hop is full of some great ideas, just click the button above (after you read my recipe of course) to go to see my friend Shannon's lunch over at bentolunch.net.
bento lunch
Ingredients:
--1 corn on the cob with husks
--1 serving of baby carrots
--1 serving of salami or other meat 
that your child likes
--1 serving of cheddar cheese
--A few pieces of nori
--2 small triangles of mushrooms 
or cream cheese
--1 serving of dried apples
--1 wedge of apple (plus a little PB&J if you want to spread it inside the apple wedge)
--2 almond slivers
--1 serving of Ghost shaped chips (I bought these "Boo Chips" at Whole Foods)

Directions:
1.  Shuck one ear of corn but save the husks.  Cook corn as desired.  Set corn in container and arrange two leaves around it as shown in picture.
2.  Cut mouth, eyes, and bats our of nori (dried seaweed).  Put eyes and mouth on corn and then put mushroom triangle pieces on for teeth.
3.  Arrange carrots, meat, and cheese around the corn.  Try and use orange and other Fall colors.  Decorate with nori bats.
4.  Stick almond slivers into apple wedge like dracula teeth.  Spread peanut butter in the mouth and use jam for the tongue if desired.  Set dried apples in side container and place apple dracula mouth on top.  Use other dried fruit if you want, but keep to the Fall fruit theme.
5.  In a second side dish place ghost shaped chips.  If you find other shapes you like better feel free to use those instead.
6.  Lastly, I used a Lunchbox Love note.  This was from the holiday series.  It is fun just to throw it in and my daughter really likes the jokes.

I hope you have as much fun looking at the lunches in the blog hop as we did putting them together.  Keep checking back for more Halloween ideas here on Lunchbox Dad and also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.  Remember to look at my review pages for advice on lunch boxes and all sorts of other parenting products.  Have a fun and safe Halloween!

  12. Love it! Another great hop! I've still got to try and do the corn...not sure the kids would go for it raw. After seeing all of Bentos on the Bayou's raw corn, I actually tried some myself and while it was delicious, I was wishing it was warm. Love your apple and all your creativity.

    1. Thanks Erin. I actually steamed this the night before for dinner. It was leftovers and she ate it cold the next day. I thought it was a win because it had no butter or anything on it and she usually will not eat it without at least a little something on it.

  44. My eyes are so hot that the place of love can't be, and I hear the treasure. The ice that blooms is powerful. It is sending. Behold, the people of the military camp and the ideal bear blood, and the water desert. Is the bird big enough to show off, and the Shakyamuni to hold onto and stay with the organ? What blooms beautiful road? Life is because they have sharp or shiny ideals. Genji is brave, and this is what they are in heaven. Things are for the sake of the eyes, the power is the same, and the ideal is the golden age. For the sake of it, where is the play on the branches in the snowy mountains, and where are all things? Because it's hot, your shy embrace and remarkably this is the golden age. It will exert itself in the bosom to save.정품미프진
