Have fun with your Halloween stash—and the kids—with these easy kitchen crafts, perfect for party favors or after-school treats.
Melt 12 ounces of milk chocolate morsels in the microwave. Combine with one 6-ounce package of chow mein noodles; mix gently. Mound noodle mixture on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Decorate with candy eyes and chill until set. For tall eyes, coat flat wooden toothpicks with choco- late and attach eyes; remove before serving.
In a clear gift bag, place one ghost or pumpkin-shaped Peeps, one graham cracker sheet and a mini choc- olate bar. Fold over the top and staple to secure. Create custom labels on your computer, or let the kids be inventive with construction paper and crayons.
Fill an empty 3-ounce Crystal Light drink mix container with Halloween goodies. Place it in the middle of a large square of white tissue paper. Gather up the corners at the top, and twist until secure, then finish with some scary eye stickers.
Melt one regular-size milk chocolate bar in the microwave. Dip the open end of a sugar ice cream cone into the chocolate and spin to coat. While the chocolate is still warm, fill with goodies, then attach to molasses cookie. Apply sprinkles for the hat’s “ribbon.”
Melt three Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars in a shallow bowl in the microwave. Add green gel food coloring and mix. Dip one end of a pretzel rod in melted chocolate and let cool
in a glass, chocolate side down, in the refrigerator. With a dot of melted chocolate, place candy eyes on pretzels.
Place orange Peanut M&M’s in the tip of each finger of a plastic food service glove. Fill with popcorn and secure with a ribbon.
