The Watermelon Brain is a Healthy Snack Alternative for Halloween

Save money on your eccentric and elaborate Halloween cake by carving a watermelon brain for dessert.

This cerebral creation is easier to make than it looks and requires a peeler, a knife and a whole lot of patience. It's just like carving a pumpkin except you need to remove the skin of the melon before you start being creative. Then just make squiggly designs within the surface of the fruit. The bright pink innards will show through and give the appearance of anatomical tissue.

Not only is the watermelon brain a vindicating experience and a relatively cheap do-it-yourself project, it is also a healthy alternative. Instead of celebrating your holiday with cavity-causing candy, you'll be shrinking your dentist bill with this anatomy treat.
