"Witches brew"

This is a Great Idea for School Parties...
I do this every year in Boston's Class, ever since Kindergarten and the Kids LOVE it...

Ghost's blood {Cherry 7 up}
Spiders {spider rings}
Worms & Guts {gummy worms}
Vampire baby teeth {tips of candy corn}
Vampire blood {red food coloring}
Frankensteins hand {frozen ice from a glove}
Mummy Dust {sugar}
Bat eyes {ice cubes with blueberries}

and the best part...

Witches Breath {dry ice}

Cast a spell and then the kids get to drink it!!


1 cup scalded milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 yeast cakes
1/4 cup water (lukewarm)
5 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup margarine
2 eggs, beaten

Heat milk, sugar, salt and butter and let cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in water in separate bowl. Stir into milk mixture. Add eggs and half of flour, mix thoroughly; then add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead a few minutes and let rise. Roll out 1/2 inch thick dough. Cut into diamond or round shapes and let rise then deep fry until golden brown.

Onion Rings

1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Cut rings in circles. Dip in mixture and drop in hot grease, flip over when underside begins to brown. Place on paper towel to dry.
