Halloween party food can range from the dreadful, such as dead man's finger sandwiches and eye-scream sweets, to the playful, including snake bites, icy witches and slime aide. Frankentreats are fun to pair with witches on a stick or ghostly goodies, and choco-caramel critters go nicely with ghostly guzzle.
To make four ghostly guzzle shakes, stir together 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons light corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat for two to three minutes. Remove from heat, and mix in 3/4 cup of skim milk. After transferring the mixture to a large bowl, add 2 more cups of skim milk, and whisk in 1/2 cup plain yogurt. Cover the bowl and chill for two hours. Pour the mixture into four short glasses, top with a spoonful of whipped cream, and gently place two chocolate chip eyes toward the top.
To make frankentreats, begin with Rice Krispies Treats, and place each one on a wooden skewer. Melt 1 tablespoon of shortening and 1 cup of white chocolate chips. Pour in green or neon green food coloring until the mixture is the desired color for Frankenstein's skin. Spread melted chocolate along the sides of each treat, and place on a cookie sheet covered in waxed paper. Decorate the face and hair with candy, such as M&Ms, Jujubes and gummy worms.
Refrigerate until the treats become hard. Remove the skewers and use black icing for the hair and eyes.
