Halloween is coming along fast, so the communal library organized a midnight hike (well, actually it was between 7 and 9 pm) for kids. My DH and I are volunteer readers, so we had much fun reading ghost stories in the dark. A spooky hut in the woods was the perfect place for the 14 kids (plus 6 adults)… We thought that brave kids need something yummy to eat. I made skull-shaped cookies and spooky eyes. I put them in a transparent box which looked extra spooky in the beam of our torches…
The eyes are made with round sweets (“Nimm 2 Soft” in Germany – somebody told me they used Laffy Taffy or Starburst, maybe that helps).
- Round, soft sweets
- frosting (mix powdered sugar with a little lemon juice)
- food coloring
- a piece of styrofoam
Here’s a little collage with the description, it should be quite self-explanatory :)
