Everybody wins this halloween with a healthy yet tricky tasty treat.
Your kids will love a snack that looks just like a mean old witch. You will love getting your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables without begging or bargaining!
All in all, everybody wins this halloween when you make a “Pear Witch Project” treat with your kids (courtesy of Disney’s Family Fun Website).
- 6 servings
- 3 pears (1 pear cut in half makes two witches)
- 1 red apple (for the witch mouth)
- 3 carrots (for the witch hair)
- 12 raisins
- 6 oreo cones
- 6 large chocolate cookies
- (This recipe recommends Archway Dutch Chocolate cookies)
- Cut the pear in half lengthwise and remove the core (a parent’s job). Place one pear half on a plate as shown.
- Slice a piece off the top of the pear, cutting away from the forehead at an angle. Shape that piece into a nose; carve a notch into the witch’s face to hold it, and set it in place.
- Attach the eyes and wart by carving small circles in the face to hold them.
- Cut a grin from the red apple. Carve out an area on the face to hold the grin, and put it in place.
- To make the hat, use frosting to glue the cone to the cookie. Let the frosting harden a bit, then place the hat on the head.
- Grate lengths of carrot hair and tuck them underneath the hat. Tip: If your child is too young to handle a knife, cut the nose and mouth and have him assemble the face with frosting.
- We hope you have enjoyed this Tasty Tuesday! At Mackoul & Associates, we are looking forward to a great Halloween. Remember to like our facebook page for your last chance to win a Kindle in the month of October. The winner will be announced on Halloween.
