Halloween Candy Skewers


Zoulah was peeking in the October Better Homes and Garden magazine and saw Dylan Lauren, of Dylan's Candy Bar fame, showcasing candy skewers for Halloween.  Zoulah, being all about Halloween adapted this idea for Red Couch Readers.  No cooking involved, just lots of luscious Halloween candy served on a skewer. 

The Red Couch family's church held their semi-annual conference this weekend -- they were listening at home.  During one of the two hour sessions, the Red Couchers created Halloween candy skewers.  Zoula wants to say that she just loves looking at the candy.  Zoulah used over 16 kinds of candy; you don't have to use that many.  Just pick your favorite Halloween candy.


 Zoulah wants to show you the skewers the Red Couch children made.


Yummmmy!  Look at all this candy.


  Zoulah thinks that candy decorations are the best -- that is, if she can get the Red Couchers to stop eating the candy. 

Zoulah's Notes:

Zoulah wants to tell you that you should use the thinner skewers if at all possible; it is much easier to skewer candy with thin skewers.  Also, use soft candy, no harder than Dots.  Zoulah says that the favorite candies for skewering were the chocolate eyeballs, the Pumpkin Peeps, the Licorice All Sorts, and the Tarantula Gummies.  Of course, Zoulah wants to tell you that she loves all kinds of candy and that whatever is your favorite candy works.


Zoulah thanks you for dropping by the Red Couch!  She promises many more tricks and treats for this Halloween season.

Joni, Tell Zoulah that I like her skewers a lot more than the original version in BH&G! Hers turned out just DARLING!

Sarah said...

Another darling idea! I think Zoulah is a great witch to have around.
Enjoy the week. ~ sarah

Does Zoulah do outside jobs? I could promise a cosy, spidery bedroom and a spooky breakfast if she'd just come on over and do up some treats for my house.

Christy said...

I just loooove your skewers! So precious!

Jacqueline said...

These are really cute. We spent out time during conference making gingerbread houses and walls. Can't wait til we get together to have another MS day. Hope Zoulah is there. She needs to encourage her twin sister Beulah to get out and about.

adorable--i will say, a skewer of candy makes it way too easy to just waltz around the house munching on sweets. hmm...i wonder how it would look for me to have a wand of sugar while on my morning walk :)
