The boys and I love baking and making snacks together and I thought we would prepare a nice Halloween lunch. I picked snacks and food that the boys could either make with me or entirely on their own. I also tried to pick healthy foods but they are still very tasty (and quite a bit sweet too).
We spread the cooking over 2 days or it would have been too much even for my 2 big guys. Here is what we did:
Strawberries and cereal bars monsters What you need:
- cereal bars (granola, for example)
- candy melts
- food coloring
(optional but fun)
- sugar eyes
I melted the candy melts. This took some trial and error and I ended up adding water to help them melt. If you don't warm them up enough they don't melt and if you warm the up too much they harden. I ended up adding water to them to help mix them and it worked a lot better. Once they were melted I split them into 3 bowls.
The boys picked their own colors and added the food coloring themselves and mixed them up. Then they dipped the strawberries and the cereal bars in the candy, placed them on a grate on top of a plate and added the sugar eyes!
They really enjoyed this one as (once the chocolate was melted) it was easy, fun and just a bit messy to do. The candy eyes were the real highlight!
