Fall is the perfect time for get-togethers and soon the season ends with a celebration of gratefulness. Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. If you’re having a crowd over before dinner, offer some appetizers that are not only tasty but also a little bit nutritious. You may have seen versions of this tray around the internet. Today I’m discussing a Turkey Caramel Apple Tray. Food art in the shape of a turkey. This is the perfect fall tidbit before the big meal. Slice apples of your choice and arrange them in a half circle at the top of a large plate or tray. Place a round bowl or container of dip at the bottom with 2 chocolate chips and a candy corn placed on it. The chips are eyes and the candy corn is his beak. You now have a cute turkey, and if you use 2 different types of apples, the “feathers” will vary. I suggest Granny Smith, Fuji, or Honeycrisp.Read More

To hold the egg shell upright, I cut out cups from a cardboard egg carton.Read More

I looked at lots of spring food art trays and platters online and then came up with my own twist. I started with my green crystal platter and some of my favorite vegetable finger foods with a container of hummus. You could use your favorite dip if it is light colored like onion dip.Read More
