Halloween Week ~ 'Candy Corn' Fruit Cups

Good morning! Hope you all had a nice, relaxing weekend. Mine was a bit...crowded. I went to the NYC Comic Con with my sister and bro-in-law on Saturday and Holy. Crap. I have never seen so many people in my whole life (and I've been at the Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day!). You could barely breath let alone move. Everyone was just herded from place to place...really took the fun out of it :(

On a side note though, I don't despise NYC anymore! I used to hate the city. The last time I was there before this past Saturday was back in 1998 when I was 18. Went to dinner and to see 'Cats' (awesome show...shame it's gone).

Maybe now that I'm older I'm just not intimidated by it anymore. And I'm sure spending two years living in D.C. helped too. I can't wait to take Jesse down there to see everything! We're gonna take him to see the Rockefeller tree and ice rink, and I've been wanting to see the Radio City Rockettes my whole life, so we'll do that too. And a Broadway show. I'm thinking 'A Christmas Story'......lots of plans :)

Anyway! To kick off my Halloween Week, I'm sharing a cute little (Healthy!!) recipe that I came across last week. It's super simple to prepare and just adorable. You can of course make smaller cups if you want to serve this at a party among other treats, or keep the larger cups for the perfect after-school snack. The way I made them, each cup held half a can of the pineapples and oranges, so none went to waste.

Ok guys, have a great week! I'll meet you back here tomorrow with another Halloween treat!
