I finally made a Halloween bento! I wanted to be a lot more ambitious but I just ran out of time. I spent most of the day making mummy pops to give away at work. Isn’t he cute? I cut most of the stick off of this one so that it would fit in the bento. They are all over the internet so I’m not going to attempt a link to the original, lol. It’s just a double stuffed Oreo on a stick dipped in candy melts. The eyes are M&M’s.
Along with the mummy pop I made a really mean cheese with enormous teeth, a sweet potato Jack, meatballs with bones sticking out, carrots, checkerboard zucchini, a radish flower, and a tomato.
Last year’s Halloween bento is below. I like it a lot better. Anything with a black cat has to be awesome, right?
I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

Yay! I’m so excited, I had time to make my black cat bento!!! The scene is supposed to be a black cat walking in a graveyard on top of scary bones.
Most of it is made out of rice: the cat is black rice, the clouds and skull are mushed up white rice paste, the background is rice mixed with mushed up edamame beans (totally stole that idea from Lia at Bentolicious!), and the tombstone is white riced mushed up with a little black rice so that it looks like granite. I wish I would have made the background a little greener, live and learn :)
The moon is tomato sandwich wrap, the grass is seaweed from seaweed salad, the dirt is sliced dates, and the rest are grapes. It looks like a lot of rice but it’s actually a thin layer on top of sauteed chicken with onions and broccoli stems.
Oh, I almost forgot, the eyes are made out of maraschino cherry pieces.
