Desire to enter October's Curbly Challenge, but can't bear to use real candy corn, which contains gelatin?
Fret no longer. The Urban Housewife offers a vegan recipe, which uses vegan margarine and powdered soy milk for structure.
Inspired by October's Curbly Challenge, I decided I'd like a couple candy friends floating around this autumn. You should make some, too.
- Candy corn
- Paper clips
- Wire cutters and/or needlenose pliers
- Pen or marker
- Microwave (optional)
1. Select a prime piece of candy corn.
2. Give 'em a face. Mine is smiley, but yours doesn't have to be so glad. Invoke all your prime pumpkin-carving skills.
3. Use the paper clips to create arms and legs. Cut...
Okay, I tried to wait for October 1st to roll around, really, I did. But it was torture as Halloween is my favorite holiday. Why? I’m not sure. Maybe the free candy. Maybe it was one holiday that didn’t have hours and hours of church services associated with it. Anyway, I love Halloween, so when the plastic pumpkins, black and orange M & M’s and miniature haunted houses hit the shelves, I’m all over them like Augustus Gloop on a Wonka Bar.
Want something different than the same old Jack-o-Lantern this Halloween? How about an entire skeleton carved out of pumpkins? The ambitious how-to posted on Instructables by mcraghead will surely impress every trick-or-treater that sees it.
Of course such a project will produce a bunch of pumpkin guts and seeds. Here's a how-to from canida on turning said seeds into a tasty treat.
