Our Kids Classes are always fun, not always tons of “cooking Skills”, but we are just trying to teach kids to have fun in the kitchen and be comfortable creating food…the techniques can come later! Along with the healthy stuff!
Bekah Kate’s Kids Fun Halloween Treats
Oct. 27, 2013
Jack-o’-Lantern Sandwich Bites
- 1 box(es) (15 oz) refrigerated pie crusts
- 8 ounce(s) thinly sliced Black Forest or Virginia ham
- 8 ounce(s) thinly sliced Cheddar or Swiss cheese
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- Heat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil.
- Unroll pie crusts. Cut each crust into 24 pumpkin shapes with a 3-in. pumpkin cookie cutter. Using a 1⁄2-in. triangular cookie (aspic) cutter or a sharp knife, cut out eyes and a nose from 12 of the cutouts.
- Using a 2-in. round cutter, cut 24 rounds from the sliced ham and 24 rounds from the sliced Cheddar.
- Place 2 slices Cheddar in the center of each of the 12 solid pumpkins; top each with 2 slices of ham. With a small brush, brush beaten egg around edges. Top with remaining pumpkins with cut-out faces, carefully pressing on edges to seal.
- Place on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with beaten egg. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until light golden. Let cool on rack 5 minutes before serving.
To make spider pops you will need lollipops, black pipe cleaners and small wiggly eyes …
center the pipe cleaner around the lollipop stick making sure both sides are even and then twist them tight …. repeat 4 times to make 8 legs …. glue on the wiggly eyes …. bend the ends of the pipe cleaners so they look like spider legs …. ta dah done.

(These were my favorites! I was making these for weeks after the class with the leftovers!…but I’m a sucker for anything with marshmallows!)
- graham crackers
- chocolate chips
- yellow candy melts (If you can’t find these, they are still cute with out them)
- candy corn
- Cut one marshmallow in half and place both pieces on a large graham cracker (2 stuck together).
- Put a candy melt on top of the marshmallows.
- Heat in the microwave for about 2-5 seconds, just enough to make the marshmallows puff up, but not get too hot. (Time depends on your microwave – make sure to do a few test runs.)
- Take out of microwave and add a chocolate chip on the yellow candy melt and the candy corn beak while the marshmallows and candy are still warm. Everything should stick together nicely.
- Let cool and serve! You can make these the night before a party and everything is still very tasty.
The rest of the items in our picture were just fun mummy or skeleton cookies, a snake or a bone made out of Pillsbury breadstick dough ( a staple at classes like these!), vampire donuts and hot dog “fingers”. Have fun!
