Halloween Treats: Recipes and Crafts for the Whole Family (Holiday Celebrations)by Donata Maggipinto
Synopses & Reviews
Trick or Treat! It's Halloween, time to revel in magic, mystery, and ghoulish abandon. Halloween Treats leads the way to Halloween fun for the whole family with terrific ideas for crafts, decorations, snacks, desserts, drinks, and supper on All Hallows' Eve.
Here are creative crafts to involve, inspire, and delight children of all ages, from "pixies" aged four to eight on up to young teenagers. Little ones will have a great time making Candy Cauldrons and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds while older kids carve jack-o'-lanterns and whip up scary but scrumptious snacks such as Cocoa Cobweb cupcakes.
Halloween Treats also suggests plenty of ways to entertain the grown-ups, including delicious dinner dishes such as Roasted Autumn Vegetables with Herbed Couscous, Tomato Polenta with Sausages, and Roasted Pork Loin with Quinces and Lady Apples — and even "Spooky Sips" in the spirit of the season. Packed with clever ideas, Halloween Treats promises a frightfully festive time for the entire family.
From delicious "one cauldron" dinners to black cat cookies, trick-or-treat bags, spooky lanterns, and tissue ghosts, this spirited book includes projects for the whole family.
