I'm Penelope Hsu in the kitchen with Family Fun. This Halloween give kids a chance to play Dr. Frankenstein by concocting this spooky monster snack.
You'll need black and red 3D fabric paint, a ceramic plate, a three ounce box of Jell-O lime gelatin, a ten ounce four inch tall clear plastic cup, a paring knife, two maraschino cherries for eyes, double sided tape, two Rollo's for neck bolts, and enough crushed Oreos for hair. Paint scars and mouths on a ceramic plate and let them air dry overnight. Prepare the gelatin according to the package directions. Pour slightly cool gelatin into the cup, stopping half an inch from the top. Refrigerate until the gelatin is partially gelled, then remove the cup from the refrigerator. Using a paring knife push two cherry eyes into the gelatin. Refrigerate again until the gelatin is completely set. Use double sided tape to attach the neck bolts. Peel the scars and mouths off the plate and place them on the cup, they'll adhere like color forms. If it's difficult to peel the shapes off the plate, just stick the plate back into the refrigerator for at least ten minutes and then they should come off easily. Cover the top of the gelatin with crushed Oreo hair. Don't wait too long to gobble up the monsters or the hair will get soggy. You can substitute kids' favorite cookies and candies to give your mini-mad scientists room to experiment.
