How To Make It
  • 1

    Jack Skellington Sandwich: Cut both slices of bread into a circular shape (Jack's face isn't a perfect circle). Fill sandwich with favorite ingredients, the above sandwich is peppered turkey and cheddar.

  • 2

    To make Jack's features, cut two larger ovals from two spinach leaves. Set aside.

  • 3

    Using a smaller oval cutter, cut the edge of one of the spinach leaves. Flip the cutter and re-cut the same piece of spinach to make an almond shaped nostril. Repeat for the second nostril.

  • 4

    For Jack's smile, use kitchen shears to cut a smile shape from the edge of a spinach leaf.

  • 5

    To assemble, dip toothpick in cream cheese and use very small dots to adhere Jack's features to the bread.

  • 6

    Using kitchen shears again, cut small sections of spinach leaves to finish Jack's mouth. Dot with cream cheese and press in place.

  • 7

    Zero Boiled Egg: Slice egg in half lengthwise, save the other half to put in the bento box underneath Zero.

  • 8

    Using oval fondant cutter, cut two eyes for Zero. Attach to the egg, using cream cheese if necessary.

  • 9

    Slice end off of one carrot, then slice a single circle for Zero's nose. Attach with a dab of cream cheese.

  • 10

    Slice/shave two strips from the sides of a carrot to make Zero's ears. A thinner carrot works better for this. Cut a small point at one end.

  • 11

    Using the tip of a knife, pierce the side of the egg enough to insert one ear, then repeat on the other side.
