Eyeballs and Bandaids ? HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Eyeballs and Bandaids – HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

by Pam on October 30, 2013

Yes, you read that right. I surprised my kids yesterday after school with some creepy and gross snacks. They loved the “used” bandaids and bloodshot eyeballs and had fun trying to gross each other out. These little treats couldn’t be easier to make and made my little ones very happy! I love it when something so simple can put HUGE smiles on their faces.

For the Eyeballs:

Flatten the marshmallows with the palm of your hand. Place a chocolate chip upside down into the center of the marshmallow then place squiggles lines around the marshmallow.

For the Bandaids:

Combine a touch of milk with the powdered sugar – not too much because you want the frosting thick. Separate the graham crackers. Spread a bit of frosting down the center of each cracker. Place a smear of red frosting in the center of the white frosting.

Place on a serving tray and serve. Enjoy!

Red White + Blue Fruit Pizza

My slimmed down fruit pizza[1] was such a hit I decided to make a red, white and blue version using blueberries and raspberries for my stars and stripes for the Fourth of July! If you don’t recall, this is a lightened up white chocolate chip cookie bar topped with cream cheese frosting and fresh fruit – delish!

Madison helped me make this American flag and carefully placed the “stars” onto the frosting. She also helped me taste-test the final product to make sure it tasted yummy – she approved!

You could also used sliced strawberries if you prefer, but using raspberries didn’t require any cutting, so it was pretty quick to assemble. 

Wishing you all a happy Fourth of July weekend!

Servings: 28 • Size: 1 bar  • Old Points: 3 pts • Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 144 • Fat: 5 g • Carb: 24.5 g • Fiber: 1.5 g • Protein: 2 g • Sugar: 17 g
Sodium: 77 mg • Cholesterol: 10 mg

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose unbleached flour (Gold Medal)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate

For the Frosting:

  • 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

To Assemble:

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups raspberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Lightly spray a 9 x 13 x 1.375 inch non-stick baking pan (quarter sheet pan) with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir to blend.

In another bowl, whisk the sugars with the butter, egg whites, applesauce and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more “crumbly” than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out. Fold in the white chocolate chips.

Spread the batter onto the baking pan using the back of a measuring cup to smooth evenly.

Bake 14 to 16 minutes, until the edges are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Don’t over-bake or your bars will be dry. Let it cool completely on wire rack.

Meanwhile, prepare the frosting; in a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until well-blended.

Spread the frosting evenly over the surface of the cookie, leaving a small margin around the edges. Layer the fresh fruit over the frosting. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

To serve, cut the bars into 28 pieces (I did 7 cuts by 4 cuts with the knife).
