Dirt

This is a great Halloween recipe.  If you want something for your Halloween party that looks gross but tastes great you’ve come to the right place.  Just imagine serving kids and guests dirt!  Follow the steps below to make your own crowd pleasing dirt recipe.
This recipe can be done 2 ways.  You can have kids make it as an individual snack (great activity for a kids party) or you can make 1 big one. The recipe below is for an individal treat. For one large serving for a party just use a couple of boxes of instant pudding mixes (as many needed for the amount of people eating) and serve in a witches pot, glass bowl or clean beach bucket.
Ingredients:  2 cups of pudding (you can use the pre-packaged individual pudding snacks or make your own with Jell-O instant pudding or any brand you choose), gummy worms/insects and gummy body parts,  3 chocolate cookies (I used the ends of an Oreo cookie), 1 plastic snack bag
Step 1: Have kids add 1 cup of pudding to a clear bowl or large cup.
Step 2: Put the 3 chocolate cookies in a plastic snack bag.
Step 3: Have kids smash up the cookies inside the bag.
Step 4: Add some of the cookie crumbs over the pudding.
Step 5: Add some gummy worms/insects/body parts.
Step 6: Add the second cup of pudding.
Step 7: Add the rest of the cookies crumbs and gummy worms/insects
  • If making one large serving layer pudding, cookie crumb and gummy worms, insects and body parts.  Keep layering until you reach the top of the serving bowl top with crumbs gummy worm, insects and body parts.  Enjoy!

Monster Marshmallows 

Create your own monster out of a marshmallow
Ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate  chips or melting chocolate(optional you can get green melting chocolate to make a green monster), large marshmallow, multi-colored icing gel (available at all supermarkets), things with decorate with such as thin pretzel sticks, M&Ms, other small candies, etc.
Step 1: First you’re going to melt the chocolate.
Step 2: After the chocolate is melted dip marshmallow into chocolate.  Let dry.  To speed up dry process place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3: Decorate your Monster Marshmallow.  Add a pretzel stick to each side to make arms, break pretzel sticks in half and stick at the top for hair ( if you are feeling really creative you can get different color melting chocolate and dip some pretzel sticks in it before the activity starts so your monster can have different color hair), using the icing gel draw eyes nose and mouth, use candies to decorate.

Step 1: Melt the green or black melting chocolate. (Don’t want to melt chocolate, check variation at the end of this recipe)
Step 2: Dip the stripped side of the Keebler cookie into the melting chocolate
Step 3: Before the cookie dries place the Hershey Chocolate Kiss in the center if the hat. (optional if adding mini M&M’s or other small candies that need to stick add them now.)
Step 4: Let cookie dry, place in the refrigerator  for 5-10 minutes for faster drying.
Step 5: After cookie is completely dry decorate using cookie icing
Variation: Instead of dipping the cookie in melting chocolate, use the back of the cookies (already plain chocolate).  Add some cookie icing around the hole and place the Hershey Kiss on top.
