Fuzz’s Halloween party is today. I told myself from the start that I was not going to obsess over menus or worry about preparing an array amazing Halloween treats. Instead, the focus will be on games, prizes and simple foods kids want – like hot dogs or pizza, fresh fruit, Rice Krispy Treats and Ghosts in the Graveyard.
I’m sort of embarrassed to admit I’ve never made Ghosts in the Graveyard because like that horrible Kitty Litter Cake and dirt cups, it’s one of the first treats people think about for Halloween parties. But kids love it and I was secretly looking for an excuse to buy Cameo cookies….which really do look like gravestones.
So my chores today are to make a Ghost in the Graveyard and decorate the house. I started making the Rice Krispy Treats yesterday evening and had a last minute idea (inspired by these) to put them on sticks and make them into monsters. I’ve only made 3 so far and am debating wheter I should continue because I am not impressed with my work. But maybe I’ll get the hang of it after I make a few more. Or maybe I should do it like Long Grove Confectionary did and use chocolate or candy coating instead of canned icing!
