Orange Jack-o’-Lanterns with Sorbet
Invite a crew of frozen friends for dessert. Cut off the top quarter of an orange. Scoop out flesh with a spoon, then carve eyes, noses, and grins with a utility knife.
- 4 navel oranges
- 2 pints mango, passion-fruit, or orange sorbet, softened
- Slice off the top quarter of each orange, and reserve for lid. Using a grapefruit spoon or paring knife, scoop or cut out interior of oranges. Reserve flesh for another use, such as fresh orange juice.
- Use our templates or draw a jack-o’-lantern face freehand. Tape paper to hollowed orange, and cut out features with a craft knife or other small, sharp knife.
- Pack each orange with sorbet, and top it with a “lid.” Bend floral wire, and poke it in — not through — top of orange for tendrils. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and place in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. Oranges with sorbet can be frozen for up to 3 days.

Make lunchtime even more appetizing by decorating kids’ lunch bags or boxes with cheery stickers and labels. Some can serve a purpose — personalizing plain containers or sealing sacks shut — others are purely for fun.
And they’re quick and simple to make with a computer and printer, a scanner, or a color copier, plus easy-to-find supplies. With the same tools, you can make a chart that lets kids help plan what to pack.
