Halloween Fun In The Kitchen

This last Saturday the kids and I had some fun in the kitchen making Black Cat Cookies. I was so impressed by how cute they turned out and the kids were able to put on all the faces all by themselves (Even Monsters Man's turned out perfect). I covered the faces with plastic wrap and tied orange raffia in a bow at the chin. We took them to some families from church last night and got rave reviews.


Tonight, after Family Home Evening, we are going to make White Chocolate Ghosts (Except ours will be minty green ghosts because I only have green mint chips on hand). And I don't have lollipop sticks so we will either use popsicle sticks or skewers.


Tomorrow we will be attempting these tasty Witch Fingers. I think we will color them green for added witchiness. I love finding kitchen projects that the kids can help with. The best part about all these recipes is that it is really hard for the kids to do anything wrong. The weirder they look, the better. Yet another reason I LOVE Halloween, no perfection needed.

We made witch finger cookies last year. If you take a knife and cut little slits across the middle of the cookie, it looks like the wrinkles on your knuckles. Pretty creepy :)

My brother called yesterday and started describing this recipe for making "sheep's eyeballs" for Halloween out of cranberries and lychee nuts. Ugh. Reminded me of that when I saw the fingers :)

My brother is Napoleon Dynamite incarnate.
