Hawaiian Pineapple Jack O’ Lantern

Posted by: Natalie Paramore

I love, love, love this time of year! The fall weather and the fall colors, football and pumpkins! In the Hawaiian spirit of Halloween, I decided to change things up by carving a pineapple instead of pumpkin.

Carving a pineapple is very similar to carving a pumpkin, but here is how I made it happen!

Begin by slicing out the center of the pineapple. You may have to cut across the center to break it down. Use a spoon or your hands to scrape out the insides.

Rinse out the pineapple with water and pat dry with a paper towel.

Use a knife to cut out whatever design or silly Halloween face you want your pineapple to have.

Put a small candle or battery-operated tea light in the center and watch your pineapple glow!

Wondering what to do with all that leftover pineapple? I think it would be great in Big Bear’s Wife’s Chocolate Marshmallow and Strawberry Panini instead of strawberries. Or maybe with strawberries too!
