Marshmallow Ghosties

I have to admit, this “recipe” is a little more “Semi-Homemade” than I feel really comfortable with.

Indeed, it is so much more semi than homemade, that I don’t even feel comfortable calling this a recipe unless I stick the little quotes around the word. But there is a time for “semi-homemade” and in my opinion, Halloween is one of those times. I mean, we’re already forgoing our “three squares a day” for a bag of Jolly Ranchers, some powdery SweeTarts and a smushed up Snickers.

Plus, everything in your office that can be covered in fake cobwebs or mummy wrappings, is absolutely covered in that shit, right down to the doorknob on the public bathroom. And anything that looks even remotely like a vampire, a jack o’lantern, or a frankenstein is deemed “The cutest scary [insert food item here] ever!!!!” And if that’s the case — if every tuna sandwich with some red food coloring on it is automatically the “Cutest, scary tuna sandwich ever!!!!” — then really, why should I try any harder than I have to in order to impress?

Wow, Yours Truly is sounding very cynical right now. Probably because I’m at work and there’s fuckin’ fake cobwebs all in my keyboard. Really I do love Halloween. Anyway, here’s the video of how to make the cutest scary marshmallows ever!!!!!!

      I guess it really should have had wings, but maybe in the future there’s jet packs.

        Exactly, because teeth replaced with quarters is that crucial. 🙂 Keep it up!

    Cool Halloween recipes this month! I downloaded your Breakfast Taco book and plan on visiting the places you recommended the next time we’re visiting our son in Austin. Here’s a Halloween bento I made a year or two ago (the black thing is a smoked salmon, cream cheese and black rice onigiri):
