Some tasty treats for Halloween
Featured in the October 2010 handbook.
Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth. baste the apples with orange or lemon juice to keep them from going brown.
Carrot fingers To prepare them, just fill a serving bowl with your favourite vegetable dip. Wash and peel 4 long carrots for fingers and 1 medium carrot for a thumb. With a paring knife (a parent's job), cut a flat, shallow notch in the tip of each carrot. Then use a dab of dip or softened cream cheese to glue a sliced-almond fingernail atop each notch. Stick the fingers in the dip, as shown, and serve with plenty of peeled baby carrots for dipping
Worms on a bun Cut a hot dog sausages into thin slices and score the edges (about three cuts per slice). Boil or microwave until the slices curl like wiggly worms. Serve three or four worms to a roll For an extra-icky touch, add a few squiggles of tomato ketchup
