Frightening Crackle and Crunch
You can add some crunch to your Halloween treat table with imaginative baked and microwaved eats. You can whip up a popcorn crumble while you have some hideous breadstick bones baking. The house will smell wonderful, and the treats are sugary, salty and as appealing to the grownups as they are to the kids. They aren't all that bad for you either.
- Breadstick bones - Form refrigerator breadstick dough into bone shapes and bake according to the manufacturer's instructions. A quick look at a typical dog bone treat will give you the general idea. You can also tie each end into a quick knot.
- Graveyard crumbles - Make a variation on rice cereal squares by substituting low calorie marshmallows and air popped popcorn for the cereal. The instructions and proportions will be about the same. Mix in a variety of colorful ingredients, like orange and brown M&Ms, crumbled cookies and even Gummi snakes. Spread the mixture on a greased cookie sheet to cool before serving. This one is filling, and a little goes a long way.
- Cornucopia crunchers -These cornucopia shaped cookies make the perfect containers for your child's favorite candy. They're an indulgence, but heck, it's Halloween! You can find a great recipe for these fall treats here.
