When I first began grade school we had a Halloween carnival and there was this one section where you could stick your hand in boxes that were labeled eyeballs, worms, and assorted other creepy items. The eyeballs felt a lot like eyeballs, even though they were peeled grapes. The worms were cooked spaghetti noodles, but how would a kid know that who was just sticking their hand inside a box? We also had all kinds of decorated cupcakes and cookies, and worm cake and punch served from a toilet bowl. Ever since that experience I have been enamored with fun Halloween foods.
This book is exactly what it says it is. It's 24 cute, creepy, and easy Halloween recipes. The recipes are cute and fun and fairly original, yet they look like scary or creepy Halloween foods or items. The ingredient list for most of the items are fairly inexpensive or are items that you may already have at home. The recipes are simple and fast so you and your kids could spend an afternoon making one of these recipes. It would be fun family time that takes care of a meal or a snack.
There are quick healthy snacks, entrees, desserts, and even an adult beverage recipe. The pictures really help to bring the recipes to life and kids love this stuff. Bring back your childhood memories and make some new ones for your kids, while trying some cool, inventive, Halloween recipes.
