Halloween is now ONLY 34 days away- you can scream now!
It’s never too early to start planning a ghostly get-together! Count down to Halloween with the October issue of Woman’s Day, now on newsstands nationwide.
Here's one of our favorite Halloween activities, that is great for any Halloween party- as the kids can EAT the house when the party is done!
Home, Scary Home:
Chocolate cookie walls and candy decorations make this haunted house frightfully delicious.
Windows – Attach windows to house with royal icing, then affix candy eyeballs ($3.99, wilton.com) to windows with melted hard caramel.
Stairs – Cut 3 wafer cookies to the width of the door, and arrange as stairs.
Shingles – Starting with the top row, stick Golden Graham Cereal shingles on the roof using melted hard caramel.
Headstone – Cut the bottom third off a Milano cookie and pip RIP on the top using tinted royal icing.
Dirt – In a food processor, pulse 6 chocolate cookies (such as Famous Wafers) until they’re fine crumbs.
Paved Ground – Make a path to the front door with white M&M’s; attach to the cookie base with royal icing. Stick gray, black, lavender and purple M&M’s around the house.
Spiders and Web – Affix mini M&M’s to the walls using royal icing. Then pipe royal icing legs and eyes and draw a web.
