We know that Halloween can be sort of a dividing holiday—some people love it, aaaaaand…some people don’t. Some are even a bit offended by it, or don’t approve of it. And that’s okay! But Halloween doesn’t have to always mean scary tombstones, rattling chains, and ghostly moans. In Fiona Hammond’s Halloween: Tricks & Treats & Other Nifty Stuff, you get the best of both worlds: creepy Halloween (if that’s your thing), and just simply fun Halloween (if it’s not).
Blind Mice with Licorice Tails is a simple cookie recipe that you can make with the kids. Brilliant Broomsticks only require five materials, and would make a great witchy welcome for Trick-or-Treaters. I Scream at Bugs are just yummy cupcakes that your little ones will have a blast decorating to look like creepy-crawlies. The Pin the Nose on the Jack-‘o-Lantern game is a cinch to make, and will leave your guests laughing, no matter what age.
Green Gloop (with Bat’s Blood) and Ghouly Tortillas might sound pretty disgusting, but it’s just guacamole with adorable ghost-shaped tortilla chips; easy to make and sure to be a hit. The RIP Coffin Treat Boxes may sound sinister, but they are fun to make, and even more fun to give away. The Shifty Frankenstein Shadow will make your house come alive with the Halloween spirit; create a few and have a complete shadow show!
