No one takes as much ghoulish glee in Halloween as the staff at Martha Stewart Living. Their signature blend of sweet, cute and just a touch spooky is irresistible to treat lovers of all ages and skill levels.
Take a peek at this gallery of creepy treats, and your guests will soon be gobblin' up their favorites.
Snip a piece of black licorice twist into a small triangle for the nose, and press into place. Poke the marshmallows a few times with the toothpick to make a large hole for a candy stick. Push the candy stick into the hole, through the jaw, and into the skull. Wrap in a cellophane bag if desired.
Cut the sour belt into a tongue. Trim gumdrops and stick them together for the head and body. Snip the black licorice for the arms, legs and pupil and the red licorice for the mouth. Poke holes for the eyeball, arms and legs, and scrape away sugar for mouth and tongue; place those pieces. Use tiny dabs of "glue" from a gumdrop to secure the pupil to eyeball.
Complete your monster by giving him two black sprinkle eyes, plus a green mint nose.
