The little spooks and ghouls are coming out to play this month and it's time to have some fun in the kitchen!
There are so many great Halloween treat recipes out there but there aren't very many that you can make with small children. Also, many of the Halloween treats were a little too spooky for my toddler. So, we whipped up these Green Goblins to make as a family and it was fun for all ages!
In fact, my husband got so into it that in addition to decorating his goblin, he made himself
a candy tooth!
Not only is this an easy and tasty family activity, it's a GREAT way to clean out your pantry! We all know you have little bags of leftover snacks & candy in the corners of your pantry...you don't? Well, we certainly did and it was great fun to use them up to create these ghoulish Goblins!
First you're going to mix Kix, marshmallows and melted butter in a large cauldron...I mean bowl...
Let cool for a couple minutes until cool enough to handle. Form into fist-sized balls and place on wax paper to set.
When completely cooled (about 30 minutes, you can speed up the process by making them on a baking sheet and popping them in the refrigerator), add two circus peanut "feet" and you're ready to decorate!
Grab your favorite candies and pantry ingredients and let everyone play Dr. Frankenstein and create his/her own monster! We had a ghoulishly good time!
