C’est Hallowe’en!

Autumn is here; which means kids are starting to plan for Halloween. It’s over a month away but retail stores, magazines; pretty much all of North America recognizes that Halloween is approaching quickly. Parents just got past the back-to-school rush and now they have to think about costumes and pumpkins?

Nonetheless, Halloween is a big event for me. I swear you’d think I was still a child b/c I’m super excited to shop for costumes, watch all the Halloween themed sitcoms and start searching for creative pumpkin stencils than the average Mom. When my Today’s Parent October 2011 issue came in the mail, I was eager to read anything related to Halloween.

In this issue, there are lots of fun, easy spooky Halloween recipes you can make with your kids. If you’re already starting to shop for candy and decorations, you should start thinking about planning a day to do family baking. Whether it’s raining, sunny or trying to get into the Halloween spirit, try this spooky themed recipe with your kids and enjoy all the fun messy moments together.

Sprinkly Marshmallow Pops:
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup Halloween coloured sprinkles
12-15 large marshmallows
12-15 popsicles or wooden candy sticks

1. Place chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered on high, stirring once, until chocolate is nearly melted, about 1 minute. Stir to melt fully.
2. Place sprinkles in a bowl
3. Dip each marshmallow in chocolate so it goes partway up the sides. Then dip chocolate in sprinkles. Place marshmallows, sprinkle side up, on baking tray to set. Once set, poke sticks into centre of plain side of marshmallow.
