Spooky Smores, Peek A Boo Monsters, Ghostly Goodies

was chatting with one of my close girlfriends and she was talking about some fun Halloween treats she was going to make with her kiddos and I thought hey maybe you mom’s (or dads!) would like these recipes as well! She found them online at www.parenting.com. She thought these would not only be fun for her kids to make but also easy! Happy Halloween!!!

Spooky S’mores

You don’t need a campfire to make these easy chocolate-hazelnut s’mores. To make these colorful treats, spread 4 graham cracker squares with chocolate-hazelnut spread and 4 graham cracker squares with marshmallow crème. Pair off the chocolate covered and marshmallow covered cracker squares and sandwich them together. Place on a microwave-safe plate and microwave, uncovered, on high for 30 seconds. Sprinkle the gooey edges in colorful orange, yellow, and black nonpareils.

Try a peanut butter variation using chocolate graham crackers instead of traditional ones and swapping the chocolate-hazelnut spread for peanut butter.

Peek-a-Boo Monsters

Start with premade Halloween cupcakes, then let your little one go wild creating a silly Halloween monster. Set out sour candy corn for the spiky hair. Cut a thin wafer in half and stick on two mini candy-coated chocolates for pupils.

Ghostly Goodies

8 large marshmallows

6 wooden skewers (points cut off)

1 cup white-chocolate chips

1 Tbs vegetable shortening

12 cinnamon Red Hots

1. For each ghost, push three marshmallows onto end of skewer; set aside.

2. Microwave white-chocolate and shortening in a microwave-safe dish on medium-high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave in 10-second intervals until smooth.

4. Refrigerate until chocolate has hardened; serve
