GRUB - Fun Food
You will need: Oreo Cookies, Candy Corn, 674529 Licorice,
White Frosting, Green and Red M&M's.
Spread the frosting on the cookie. Place the two green M&M'S on as the eyes.
Place the red one on as the nose. Cut
the licorice into small pieces (about one inch) and place them on as whiskers.
Put a small amount of the frosting on the bottom of (2) candy corns and
place them on the top of the cookie as the ears.
You will need: Tissue Paper, Lolly Pop, String.
Take a tissue paper and cover the top of a tootsie pop and
tie a string around the "head" of Ghost! Makes a cute snack.

Marshmallow Fluff), Chocolate Chips.
Using peanut shaped cookies, spread with white frosting or
marshmallow fluff. Add chocolate
chips for eyes and nose.
You will need: Mashed Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Cookie
Hand sculpt mashed potatoes to look like a ghost.
Place them on an oiled cookie sheet, brush with melted butter, and put in
the oven to heat and brown a little. You
can serve it with bat shaped meatloaf (using a bat cookie cutter of course).
You will need: Peanut Butter, Bread, Cookie Cutters.
Have the children make their own peanut butter sandwiches
with two pieces of bread. Give each
child a Halloween cookie cutter and let them press the shape out of the center
of their sandwich. Now have a
"Spooky Sandwich Puzzle."
Note from Baloo—I would check the crescent roll
package on temperature to bake these at. Probably
a typo in this book it called for oven temp to be 25 degrees.
I bumped another 0 on the end put this is probably to low.
You will need: 1 pkg Crescent Rolls, Baco-bits, 6 Hot Dogs,
4 Slices American Cheese.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Cut 2 hot dogs in half, first one way, then the other so that you have 8
pieces. Take crescent rolls out of
can and unroll. Divide into four rectangles and close holes in the middle by
pinching together. Put 1 slice of
cheese on each rectangle. Sprinkle 1 tsp of baco-bits on top of each slice of
cheese. Put 1 hot dog on top of
each slice of cheese. Seal edges by
pressing dough together. Form into
mummy shape. Make bandage marks
with knife. Put on ungreased
cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Poke
eyeholes with straw.
2 cups sugar
1 cup light syrup (white corn, Karo)
2/3 cup margarine
2 pkg. Koolaid
1 tsp soda
Boil the sugar, syrup and margarine together for 3 minutes.
Stir in soda and Koolaid. Pour over
6 quarts of popcorn. Bake at 225 F for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven
and break up immediately.
1/2-pound chopped bacon
2 boiled potatoes -- peeled and cubed
1onion - sliced thinly
8 eggs -- beaten slightly
Sauté bacon until crisp.
Remove from pan, drain on paper towel.
Pour off all but 3 tablespoons bacon fat. Sauté onions in bacon fat until soft. Add potatoes and cook, stirring often, until potatoes start
to brown. If potatoes
stick to pan, add more bacon fat. When
potatoes begin to brown, add bacon and eggs. Cook,
stirring constantly, until eggs set. Season
with salt and pepper to taste.

Crush all Oreos in food processor. In the bottom of each cup, place
about 1 Tbsp. of Oreos. Mix remainder of Oreos in pudding mixture,
holding out about 2 cups for topping. Then spoon about 2 TBSP Oreo
mixture over pudding. Poke one gummi worm down in dirt, still
showing on top. On each Milano cookie, write on top half "RIP" with
cake decorating gel, and stick them down in the back of the cup.
They resemble tombstones.
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
An absolute favorite of our family
Scoop seeds from pumpkin
separate seeds from pulp and rinse
you may have to pick them out by hand
drain and dry seeds
put seeds on cookie tray or toaster tray
sprinkle with salt
toast at 300 F (I'm not sure about this)
seeds should be dry and barely turn golden brown
some seeds will puff up.
These are similar to sunflower seeds and have a nice nutty flavor,
but the shells are harder to crack open if they are small.
