Hunger Games Book Club

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble

Our book this month, for Book Club, was the Hunger Games! What a great discussion we had. I think this was the most we have ever discussed a book before. Usually we talk about the book for about 5 minutes and then 2 hours about life in general. I LOVE BOOK CLUB!!...and you already know how much I love Halloween, so I EXTRA loved this girls night!

On the menu:
Worms
Mummy Stomboli
Spider Web Cookies
Carrot Finger Stubs w/ dip
Apple Fangs
Candy Corn Bark
Witches Brew



Jello Worms

First pull the bendy part of 100 straws then place a rubber band around them to keep together. Put in a tall container. Pour your prepared jello over the straws. Let the jello set. Squeeze the jello out of each straw. It's pretty time consuming and I'd probably never do it again... it was a lot of work and my fingers are still a little red. Oh! You can add cool whip, or sour cream, or sweetened condensed milk to give the jello a more pasty color. I used cool whip and it all settled to the top.

Candy Corn Bark

Melt a bag of white chocolate chips, spread on to wax paper. Squeeze a few drops of yellow food coloring around and swirl with a butter knife. Sprinkle with candy corn.

Spider Web Cookies and Apple Fangs

You can top any cookie or cupcake with these webs made from white chocolate. Melt the chocolate, fill a ziploc baggie and clip the end. I piped the webs on to wax paper and put them in the fridge.
Core and slice your favorite apple, dab a little peanut butter in between two slices. I used string cheese for the fangs.
