Transform mini candy bars into cute Halloween creatures, like this Frankenstein treat. They're easy to make so your kids can help.

Here's how: Push mini candy bar onto a stick. Dip in melted chocolate coating. Dip the top in sprinkles for “hair” and place on a baking sheet. Drop on sprinkle eyes and a peanut M&M nose. Add a licorice shoestring mouth and side neck bolts.

This is a super-easy way to make store-bought doughnuts extra festive for Halloween.

Here's how: Add marshmallow or plastic fangs to the center of a doughnut. Cut cupcake paper into a bat wings shape. Use a knife to slit the side of a doughnut and carefully push in the paper wing. Add eyes with a dot of melted chocolate piped out of the corner of a plastic bag.

This is a great way to use up leftover chocolate and candy. Break up the bark and package in cellophane bags for a party favor.

Here's how: Spread melted chocolate on a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle on chopped candy. You can also add nuts or pretzels. Let harden, then break up.
