I was invited to a neighborhood Halloween party for the kids and was assigned “guacamole.” The host said, “You’re doing the guacamole coming out of the pumpkin.” Well, that’s been done for the last few years so I immediately hopped online and googled “Halloween Guacamole.”
A lot of pics came up and most were the usual pumpkin-vomiting guacamole. Then I came across the Guacamole Frankenstein and I was sold! Here is what I ended up with:
As soon as I finished, I felt that he looks more like a hockey player than Frankenstein so go ahead and blame my upbringing for that one!
Instead of making the guacamole myself, I opted for store-bought for one single reason: I knew I could leave it out for several hours and it wouldn’t brown. It was a party and I didn’t want to have to babysit it. I used green olives with pimento centers and eggplant skins for his hair, eyebrows and stitches.
I mounded the guacamole on the platter and smoothed it into the shape I wanted with a spatula. I used a knife to make his mouth and then I took a large spoonful of guacamole and slid it out to make his nose, then smoothed it into place.
I wasn’t sure how the kids would feel eating his head but they dove right in and didn’t have any problems! Happy Halloween!
