Zoulah featured Fright and Night, her cats, on yesterday's tablescape. She only thought it appropriate that we should have some edible cats so she came up with a minimalist version of an edible cat. Of course she inserted a stick in them -- it is "more better that way!" She named the cats Spike.
Zoulah served them to Joni's Activity Day Girls (LDS church group). Zoulah cackled when they ate the cats and didn't take out the toothpicks -- they looked so funny as they tried to eat the cat with the whiskers in the way.

Zoulah's Instructions for Jell-O Popcorn Ball Cats
Make the recipe HERE from Joni's blog for Jell-O Popcorn Balls. Make sure to take out any "old maid kernals." Oops, Zoulah resents that name! Use whatever flavor of Jell-O you like. Zoulah used blueberry. Then add about 1/2 teaspoon black coloring. Butter hands, then work quickly and make into popcorn balls; while still somewhat warm, shape cat ears. Then cut off top of Dots black candy for nose. Use a bit of corn syrup to glue nose. Insert six round toothpicks for whiskers. You could add a candy mouth or eyes. Zoulah went for the minimalist cat.
Zoulah thanks you for your visit to Red Couch Recipes and promises she has a lot more Halloween tricks and treats in her apron.
