Not-So-Spooky Halloween Treats
Looking for some family friendly Halloween fun? Grab your little ghosts and goblins and get to work creating these kid-approved, super-cute treats.
- You don't need a campfire to make s'mores. Just spread graham crackers with chocolate-hazelnut spread and marshmallow fluff (layer on peanut butter if you're feeling adventurous) and add some orange sprinkles for Halloween flair.
- With just a few simple supplies, you can turn a plain, clear cup into a ghostly looking goblet. Stick a bunch of googly eyes all over the outside of your cup with craft glue should work and fill with bright-colored juice for an eerie eyeful!
- Store-bought fondant transforms marshmallows into ghoulish ghosts. Have your little ones help you roll out the fondant. Then place fondant over marshmallows for a spirited effect. Use decorating gel to make little faces.
- Turn ordinary chocolate cupcakes into creepy candy monsters with the right toppings. Use candy corn to make spiky-looking "hair" and candy discs or candy-coated chocolates for eyes. To make scary skeletons, use white candy-coated licorice pieces for the body, arms and legs, a white mint disc for the head and sprinkles for the ribs.
- What kid wouldn't love a jack-o-lantern sandwich for lunch? It's easier than it sounds: Use mini cookie cutters to cut faces into slices of American cheese (kids have a blast with this!) and use them to make open-faced sandwiches.
