Smelly or Sweet?


Witches fingers and toes sure are smelly, aren't they?

Today was an unbelievably rainy day, so to beat the "Mama, what can I do noooooooow?" syndrome, we practiced making these cute snacks for our upcoming Halloween party. It's super-simple: dip pretzel rods into green melted Wilton's Candymelts, then stick a sliced almond at the tip for a fingernail. I added swirls to look like knuckles, and voila!

The kids had a blast making these. The only problem was, 3Po kept absentmindedly sucking on his pretzel rod while waiting for his turn to dip. It was difficult to convince him that his pretzel would be considered more of a smelly old trick than a sweet treat if he were to dip it and offer it up as a party snack.

What a wonderful idea ! I learn a lot about Halloween here on all blogs, because in Belgium it's not yet that celebrated. Here in Waterloo a lot of Americans are living so they brought the use over and some people are celebrating it now too. But of course we don't know all these little "extras", lol !
