A lot of Halloween food comes in the form of sugared sweets that will earn you a trip to the dentist if you indulge in too much, but these pumpkin rice balls are a way to have festive food fun without getting dreaded cavities.

These cheeky jack o'lanterns are made of short grain rice that is soaked in carrot juice to construct them. The faces are made out of black olives and green bell peppers are used to make the stem. What you end up with is a tasty orange pumpkin ball that you can chow down on all night without any regrets.

Why stop at pumpkin rice balls? You could easily make little ghosts to go along with your theme of edible Halloween characters. Stats for Guilt-Free Gourd Desserts Trending: Older & Chilly
