Transcript:Chocolate Halloween Party TreatsHi, I am Angela de Jong-Angelici for About.com Parenting. Halloween is a fun and spooky holiday. And kids love making scary treats.
There are many treats you can make with your kids. In this program we will demonstrate how to make worms and dirt, spiders and crunchy monster brains.
Prepare Your Kids for the KitchenFirst, get your kids ready to work in the kitchen. This means washing hands, pulling back longer hair and putting on an apron.
Worms and Dirt TreatLet's start with worms and dirt. You will need 2 of the 4 serving size packages of chocolate pudding, 3 ½ cups milk, ½ tub which is four ounces of whipped topping, 1 row or 6 ounces of crushed Oreo cookies and gummy worms.
Prepare the pudding by whipping in the milk. Mix in the whipped topping. Now stir in ½ of your crushed cookies. Take a cup and spoon in 2 tablespoons of pudding mixture, followed by 1 tablespoon of cookie crumbs, then add 2-3 gummy worms. Repeat this process. This will make about 10 cups. For a more festive look, put the mixture in these skull or pumpkin buckets. Kids will gobble up the worms and dirt.
Candy Spiders TreatNow you need some spiders. Gather big marshmallows, string licorice, chocolate syrup and round candies like M&Ms or Reese's Pieces. Cut the licorice into 2 inch pieces. Take the marshmallow and poke 4 pieces of licorice into each side. Pour chocolate syrup over marshmallow. Add 2 candies for eyes. Your kids can have fun and add as many eyes or legs as they want.
Crunch Monster Brains TreatCrunchy monster brains are just a fun twist on smores. You will need mini marshmallows, chocolate syrup and crushed graham crackers. Place about 6-8 marshmallows in a pile. Drip heated chocolate syrup over them. Then top with crushed graham crackers. These crunchy monster brains will have your kids screaming for more.
