Kitty Litter Cake Recipe

It's made to look like a kitty litter tray, tootsie rolls and all!

1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 White Cake Mix
1 package White Sandwich Cookies
1 Large package Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
Green food coloring
12 Small Tootsie Rolls
1 *NEW* kitty litter box
1 *NEW* kitty litter box plastic liner
1 *NEW* pooper scooper
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans). Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.

Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in blender, they tend to stick, so scrape often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup.

To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix using a fork or shake in a jar.

When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. You probably won't need all of the pudding, mix with the cake and "feel" it, you don't want it soggy, just moist; gently combine.

Line new, clean kitty litter box. Put mixture into litter box.

Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls and bury in mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top, this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.

Heat remaining Tootsie Rolls, 3 at a time in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Now spread 5 of the remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top; take one and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box; sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs.

Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around. Serve kitty litter cake with a *new* pooper scooper.

Frog-Eye Salad

This old time favorite is delicious as a salad or dessert. The recipe uses a tiny round pasta called Acine di' Pepe (like orzo, but round) which gives it an interesting texture similar to tapioca.

1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks in its own juice, undrained
2 (11-ounce) cans mandarin orange segments, drained
1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/3 cups (8 ounces)Acine di Pepe Pasta, uncooked
3 1/2 cups (8 ounces) frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed and divided
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup flaked coconut
Maraschino cherries (optional)

In medium saucepan, stir together sugar, flour and salt. Drain pineapple, reserving juice to equal 1 cup. With whisk, gradually stir juice and egg into sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in lemon juice. Cool mixture to room temperature.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool quickly; drain well.

In large bowl, stir together pineapple juice mixture and pasta. Cover; refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Add crushed pineapple and chunks, oranges, 2 cups whipped topping, marshmallows and coconut; mix gently and thoroughly. Cover; refrigerate until cold.

Top with remaining whipped topping; garnish with cherries, if desired.

Makes 12 servings.

"Witches Fingers"

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup (175 mL) whole blanched almonds
1 tube (19 g) red decorator gel (blood for fingers)

In bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla; beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Working with one quarter of the dough at a time and keeping remaining dough refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonful of dough into finger shape for each cookie.

Press almond firmly into 1end for nail. Squeeze in centre to create knuckle shape; using paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle.

Place on lightly greased baking sheets; bake in 325F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond; squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back into place, so gel oozes out from underneath. Remove from baking sheets; let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.

Happy Halloween, and enjoy!

Cat Poop Cookies

1/2 cup honey
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup wheat and barley nugget cereal (eg. Grapenuts TM)

Microwave honey on high until bubbly (about 1 minute). Stir in the margarine. Add the egg and mix well. Stir in the flour, cocoa and vanilla. Mix well and chill dough for several hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll chunks of the chilled dough into cylindrical shapes in order to resemble cat poop. Roll cookies in cereal and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve cookies in a new litter box on a bed of malted barley cereal. Use a new litter scoop to remove cookies.

Butterfinger "Eyeballs"

Create an eye-opening experience with this chilling treat made with creamy peanut butter and crunchy pieces of NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bars.

Wax paper
1 cup creamy peanut butter (not all-natural)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bar
2 cups NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Premier White Morsels
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
2 pkgs. NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER BB'S Candies
1 small tube red decorator icing
Wooden pick or skewer for dipping

LINE 2 baking sheets with wax paper.
BEAT peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture holds together and is moistened. Stir in chopped Butterfinger. Shape into 1-inch "eyeballs." Place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 1 hour.

MELT morsels and shortening in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute 30 seconds; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Remove one baking sheet of frozen "eyeballs" from freezer (keep other sheet in freezer until ready to use).

DIP one "eyeball" into melted morsel mixture using a wooden pick or skewer. Shake off excess and return to baking sheet. Gently press 1 Butterfinger BB on top of "eyeball" to make a "pupil." Repeat procedure with remaining "eyeballs" on baking sheet. Refigerate until coating is set. Repeat with remaining sheet of "eyeballs" and coating. You may find it necessary to reheat morsel mixture before dipping second batch. Before serving, pipe decorator icing around eyeballs to create bloodshot markings. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Best served cold.

GHOST COOKIES--dip NutterButter cookies (or something with that shape) in white chocolate. Place mini M&M's or red hots for eyes and mouth while chocolate is still wet.

SPIDER WEBS--use any funnel cake batter, and pour into hot oil in shape of spider web. Drain--Dust with powdered sugar while warm.

BREADSTICK BONES--You can use homemade dough, or just buy the breadstick dough in cans. Roll them out into a rope, tie each end in a big knot, and brush with oil and bake. You can use pretzel dough too.

SPIDER WEB SOUP--Dip canned or homemade tomato soup into individual bowls (It also looks good on split pea soup, because of the yucky green color). Stir some sour cream until it is very smooth (add a bit of milk if necessary). Place the sour cream into squirt bottle or pastry bag and draw a spider web on top of the soup. (An easy way to do this is make 2 or 3 circles, then run the edge of a knife from center out to make the web design.

SPIDER ROLLS OR BREAD--Use homemade or frozen bread dough. Roll one ball for body and place on cookie sheet. Roll smaller ball for head, and place just touching body. Roll thin ropes and place with edges just under body for legs. Brush with oil and bake until browned.

WITCHES HATS--Place fudge stripe cookies on sheets with chocolate side up. Using any icing, stick (unwrapped) chocolate kisses in center of each cookie. You can use orange icing and let a little show around edges to make band or use orange tube icing to make a hat band, if you want.

SPIDER CUPCAKES--Bake any flavor of cupcake, and remove from the papers. Place upside down, and frost with dark chocolate frosting. Place red M&M's for eyes, and use black licorice for legs, sticking them out of the sides of the cupcake, and bending them to the angle you like.

MAGGOT PUNCH--Use any punch or cider recipe you like. Red can be "blood", but any kind is fine. Pour some of the punch into ice cube trays, and place gummi worms in each cube--leave some of them hanging over the edges so they are hanging out of the cubes when they freeze. Dump the ice cubes into the punch just before serving.

SNAKE SUB--Cut long french bread into sections, or use small round rolls or buns. Make whatever type of sandwich you want, then arrange the pieces on a tray like a squiggly snake. Place a long strip of pimiento hanging out of the "head" for a tongue, and use olive slices for the eyes.

SPIDER LOAF--Use a big round bread loaf, or make smaller individual ones. Make the sandwich with your choice of fillings, and use olive slices for the eyes. You can bend breadsticks and bake them to use for legs, or use thick rope licorice.

WORMS AND BLOOD ON A BUN--Cut uncooked hot dogs in half once lengthwise, then cut each half into 4-6 long somewhat squared strips. Dump into boiling water--as they boil they will curl and look like worms. Serve on hot dog buns, and slather with "blood" (catsup).

EYEBALLS--Make deviled eggs. Put one slice of ripe or green olive in center of yolk for pupil.

WITCHES--Place nice round scoops of green (pistachio or mint) ice cream on trays. Put sugar cones on top for witches hat. Use string licorice for hair, and candies or icing to make face.

INTESTINES--Get the thickest fresh fettucine noodle you can find. Cook them, and toss well with a little spaghetti sauce before serving.

SHRUNKEN HEADS ON A STICK--Dip caramel apples as you usually would, but before the caramel sets, decorate with candies to make face, and licorice to make hair. You can also use icing to attach candies and/or decorate once caramel sets up.

JACK O LANTERN CAKE--make two bundt cakes. Place first one upside down on platter. Spread flat side with orange icing, then place second cake right side up on top, forming round pumpkin shape. Frost completely with orange icing, then decorate with licorice or tube icing to make face. Fill center opening with candy corn, or frost wafer type ice cream cone with green icing and place upside down over center opening to make stem.
