Need Help with Veggies!

I need some good Halloween food ideas. Alex's class is having a party next week and we signed up to bring veggies. Well, veggies are BORING.

How can I Halloween-ize some veggies to make them fun for a 4-year-old party?

I thought about carving baby carrots into tiny pumpkins and well, that's just ridiculous. I thought about modifying Cagey's Ghosts in the Graveyard dessert for veggies, but what would the 'dirt' be? You don't really dip veggies into anything brown, typically. EW.

Who's got a good creative idea that I can try? With limited time commitment please!

One of the coolest Halloween things I ever saw was a smallish pumpkin with a face drawn on, the top carved off and insides scooped out, filled with chunky guacamole as BRAINS! ewwww!

Maybe use thick-peeled (and iced so they curl) or thinly coined carrots as the dipping tools, and call 'em lobotomy instruments?

Have fun!

Check out for some fun Halloween themed recipes -- Rest in Peas (gravestone toasts resting in a pea dip) could also be made with guacamole. Not exactly a vegetable, but the Mashed Bootato ghosts are so cute.

You could use dark rye bread crumbs for dirt over a base of veggie dip to make a graveyard and tiny baby squash for pumpkins.
