Pumpkins, Spiders, and Bats… OH MY!!
Use these fun ideas to get your kids in the kitchen and whip up some tasty low-sugar festive treats! Don’t have Wholly Rollies at a store near you? Don’t worry, you can order them online or use Crazy Richard’s creamy peanut butter to make some peanut butter balls of your own!
To start: Take a bag of Wholly Rollies and let them thaw on the counter for 1-2 hours. (Or if you’re in a hurry, put them on a microwave safe plate and heat on high for 45 seconds.) Take 2 Wholly Rollies and squish them together in your hands. Slowly start to knead them together and roll them into one larger ball. Repeat this until you have 5-6 larger balls. (Note: You can make all of these ideas with just one Wholly Rollie, but they’re a bit easier to manage with a larger base of two balls smooshed together.)
For the Pumpkins: Stick a small piece of a pretzel stick into the top for the stem, and make a smiley face using mini chocolate chips on the front.
For the spiders: Shape the larger balls into more of an oval shape. Break off semi-circle pieces of heart shaped pretzels for the legs and carefully insert 4 on each long side of the oval. Add mini chocolate chips for the eyes.
