Kid Friendly Halloween Treats

If you just happen to be in the Halloween countdown here are some kid friendly treats. Each one  is easy to assemble and certainly are eye catching!
Spider crackers

Ingredients (per ‘spider’)
2 round crackers
peanut butter
8 chow mein noodles
2 raisins

Smear a small amount of peanut butter onto the inside of one cracker. Place 4 chow mein noodles on one side of the cracker followed by 4 more on the other side. Place the remaining cracker on top. To make the ‘eyes’: dab two spots of peanut butter near the top of one crackers to ‘glue’ the raisins into place.
These cookie pops are a no bake item made with store bought Halloween Oreo cookies. The tutorial is very helpful.

Eye Ball Soup 
Ingredients:
  • 2- 14 ounce cans diced fire roasted tomatoes (tested with Hunts)
  • 2-3 cups chicken stock (tested with Swanson’s new Cooking Stock)
  • 1-2 tsp. Italian seasoning (or use McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cherry sized fresh mozzarella balls
  • green olives with pimentos, the smallest you can find
Directions:
  • In a medium saucepan, set over medium-high heat, pour tomatoes, and 1 cup of chicken stock. Bring to a boil and add Italian seasoning. Remove from heat and place soup in a blender. Blend until pureed, and pour back into saucepan. Add as much more stock and salt and pepper as desired.
  • To make eyeballs, use a small melon baller and a sharp paring knife to carefully carve out a hole for an olive. Gently press the olive in. (Don’t worry if the cheese cracks a little—the eye will just end up looking bloodshot when the tomato soup flows in!) Make enough eyeballs for each bowl of soup to have 2 or 3. Place eyeballs in shallow bowls, and carefully pour soup in.
