This is a great little project that you can do with your kids for a Halloween party. Its simple and really impactful for a layout for a party. Simply pop popcorn. At each tip of each finger put a candy corn. Add popcorn to fill the glove. Close with a piece of curling ribbon made into a bow. Add a spider ring for a bit of show.
I always have loved this time of year because we get to consume candy corn. I love candy corn when it is made of real honey instead of cheap sugars for sweetness. This is also done very quickly and is a great snack – Bananas and Candy Corn!!!
You can use a ripe banana and insert the tips of candy corn into the banana. You can also use peanut butter over banana and then insert candy corn. The peanut butter adds two import factors: It tastes better with peanut butter and it helps keep the banana from going bad quickly since air is kept from it.
-sort pretzels to pull all the whole ones and put them in a triangle fashion just like the picture shows so they are ready to go – you will need to act fast and a second pair of hands will be very helpful because you will have to do this before the chocolate cools
-put the candy corn (or what you will use for the nose to one side to have easy access
-melt chocolate or candy melt in a candy melting pot or follow instructions for microwave. Try the richness of using real chocolate – once you are successful you will realize how easy (and better tasting) it is and will never go back to using candy melts again
-dip and roll the Oreo so all sides are covered and place one on top of each triangle of pretzels and push down
-quickly push down the candy corn
-pipe on white royal icing to form whites of eyes
-Pipe on black of eyes
