Sure, candy is likely your kids' favorite Halloween treat, but why not cook up something a little different this October 31. Use this easy-to-make recipe to lure your children into the kitchen for a festive family activity that results in delicious chocolate witch hair.

Ingredients

3 large shredded wheat bundles
1 6-ounce bag milk chocolate chips
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • Break up the shredded wheat bundles into single long strands, so they have the appearance of hair. Set aside.
  • Place the honey, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and butter in a saucepan and heat over a low flame to melt. Stir constantly. Mixture should be smooth and glossy.
  • Remove from heat and gently stir in the shredded wheat.
  • When the shredded wheat is completely coated, scoop it onto waxed paper in small equal portions. Use a fork to gently rake hairs into one direction. Place in refrigerator for about thirty minutes.
