Oreo Eyeballs – Items Needed to Make:

  • Oreo Cookies
  • Sticks
  • White chocolate chips
  • Red Frosting
  • Blue Frosting
  • Black Frosting
  • Wax Paper

Twist oreos apart and put stick into the frosting in the middle, it is best to let this set for a while (20 minutes) before attempting to dip in melted chocolate as it may slip off. Melt white chocolate chips (we use microwave in 30 second increments) dip oreos into the melted chocolate. Make sure you cover the entire cookie, set aside to harden (can be put in freezer to speed it up) After chocolate has hardened and is firm to the touch use the blue frosting and make a big circle in the middle of the cookie, then take the black frosting and put a dot on the blue circle. Next use the red frosting to draw the veins on the eyes.

Pretzel Broomsticks – Items Needed to Make:

  • Pretzel sticks
  • Plastic bags
  • Halloween Ribbon
  • Halloween Pencils

Put the pretzels into the plastic bags and insert pencil into the middle of the bag, use the ribbon to tie it closed.

  • Rice Crisp Cereal
  • Marshmallows
  • Orange Food Coloring
  • Green Frosting
  • Mini Rolos
  • Wax Paper

Make rice crispy treats as usual (recipe can be found on the back of the cereal box) add orange food coloring to desired color. Wet your hands and shape into pumpkins. Add mini rolo for the stem, and use the green frosting to add leaves.
