1 sweet potato

Prick the sweet potato with a fork and bake for 1 hour
When cool enough to handle, cut in 1/2
Scoop the flesh out, mash with the cheese and spoon back into the potato shells
Decorate each 1/2 with the red pepper strips to make them look like pumpkins
Cut the olives into small triangles and circles to create eyes and a mouth
