Sweet Offerings

Dish out treats in a new way. Fill ornamental gourds with candies and display on a tray.

Here's how: Trace a circle atop a gourd with a jar lid and grease pencil. Cut out the circle with a pumpkin carving knife and scoop out seeds and pulp. Make a small pouch to fit inside using plastic wrap. Fill it with your favorite candy, place it in the gourd, and cut away excess wrap.
