A halloween edible craft from family fun. However, we might do this on a snow day now. From family fun.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 fresh green pear (makes 2 heads and noses)
  • 2 raisins (eyes)
  • chocolate chips (1 for wart)
  • red apple (mouth)
  • canned chocolate frosting
  • ice cream, cone (hat)
  • soft chocolate cookies, we used an Archway Dutch Cocoa Cookie (hat)
  • carrot, and grater (hair)


  1. 1. Cut the pear in half lengthwise and remove the core (a parent's job). Place one pear half on a plate as shown.
  2. 2. Slice a piece off the top of the pear, cutting away from the forehead at an angle. Shape that piece into a nose; carve a notch into the witch's face to hold it, and set it in place.
  3. 3. Attach the eyes and wart by carving small circles in the face to hold them.
  4. 4. Cut a grin from the red apple. Carve out an area on the face to hold the grin, and put it in place.
  5. 5. To make the hat, use frosting to glue the cone to the cookie. Let the frosting harden a bit, then place the hat on the head.
  6. 6. Grate lengths of carrot hair and tuck them underneath the hat.
  7. Tip: If your child is too young to handle a knife, cut the nose and mouth and have him assemble the face with frosting.
