Monster sandwich


  • 2 slices of bread

  • ham

  • cheese

  • two stuffed olives


  1. Cut slices of bread into circles using a round cookie cutter.

  2. Arrange ham on one side of bread, rolling one piece up to stick out of the side of the sandwich (this will be the "monster's tongue").

  3. Cut cheese edges with zig zag scissors and place on top of ham.

  4. Place second slice of bread on top to make a sandwich and using two toothpicks, secure olives on top to serve as "eyes."

Apple teeth


  • apple

  • nut butter

  • mini marshmallows


  1. Slice apple into wedges.

  2. Spread nut butter across one side of an apple wedge and top line with mini marshmallows.

  3. Spread nut butter across the side of another apple wedge and fasten on top of marshmallows.

Cheesy eyeballs


  • mini Babybel cheese rounds

  • green olives, sliced

  • black olives, sliced

  • red food coloring


  1. Place a round green olive slice on top of the cheese.

  2. Top the green olive with the tip of a black olive.

  3. Using a toothpick dipped in red food coloring, draw designs for "bloodshot eyes."

Clementine pumpkins


  • 1 clementine

  • 1 slice of celery


  1. Peel clementine and stick celery in at the top opening.

Bat Bites


  • Oreo cookies (icing removed, but set aside)

  • Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

  • candy eyes


  1. Remove icing or creme from cookies and set aside. Cut or break chocolate cookie pieces in half.

  2. Using icing, "glue" on cookie pieces to look like wings atop the peanut butter cup.

  3. Using icing again, secure candy eyes on top of wings.
