Candy Corn Veggie Tray

Today is October 9th and I’m officially in the Halloween spirit! 

Even though it was 84 degrees today, I know the fall like temperatures will be back soon.

My neighbors have already started decorating with pumpkins and other fun fall things. I always wait until someone else starts decorating, I don’t want to do it too soon.

Halloween isn’t a day that I have a hard time sticking to my diet. Don’t get me wrong I love candy, but I’m more tempted by Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I thought this candy corn veggie tray was the perfect way to be festive and not eat candy.

I think presenting food in a fun way makes it more exciting, and it makes me less likely to want to grab a candy bar.

I tried to mimic the shape of the candy corn. I had bought triangle plates from Wayfair a while back so I used those.

Since the candy corn is white, orange and yellow I used cauliflower, baby carrots, and yellow peppers.

I love the color of these veggies together!

To go with the veggies I made an easy ranch dip. I simply mixed 16 ounces of fat-free sour cream with a packet of ranch dip mix.

The fat-free sour cream is great because you can have 1/4 cup for only 1 Freestyle point.

This appetizer can be made in about 15 minutes. I like to make the dip a couple hours ahead of time because I think it tastes better.

If you’re looking for another Weight Watchers friendly snack you can check out my Candy Corn Yogurt. The funny thing is I don’t really like candy corn. But that’s ok because the yogurt doesn’t taste like candy corn, it just looks like it.

Nothing says it’s Halloween like candy corn does!
