Turn your "mini pumpkin" into a serving piece in 3 easy steps!
Just slice off the top, scoop, and fill!
I love this idea for a Halloween party, Thanksgiving dinner, Succot, or any fall party. If you entertain a small crowd, you could make one for each person at his/her seat, or for a larger crowd make a few and use them for appetizers accompanied by crudite, GF chips, apple slices, etc.
My mini pumpkin photo is filled with a simple guacamole
( mashed avocado, diced celery, lemon juice and Himalayan pink salt). Another guacamole recipe is listed below.
No matter which filling you serve, the presentation will be festive and colorful!

How I sliced my mini pumpkin
As easy as it sounds, it could be a little tricky to slice the pumpkin since the pumpkin is extremely hard. I used a large chopping type knife. I read about this on Pinterest, but it didn't give any instructions, so I had to guess. This is how I sliced it.
