Dracula’s Dentures for Halloween
The creepy and scary, the cute and the dainty, the critters and superheroes will be out begging for candy in only a week.
Some of you may have Halloween parties to attend and if you do, make these simple, scary, Dracula Dentures. I first saw these in the Fall edition of Yum Food and Fun for Kids where I have a recipe for leftover candy bark, but it actually came from Nestle Toll House. Very clever and super easy but be careful, otherwise it’ll look like Dracula has red lipstick on his teeth. And no Dracula can be taken seriously if he has lipstick on his teeth.
*** Tip – when making red frosting, put the red coloring into the frosting and mix up a day ahead of time. This give the red time to settle in. I also use Americolor Red Gel Paste. It just gives it the deep red color you want without using the entire bottle or leaving an after taste.

Yield: 24 sets of dentures
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 11 min
Total Time: 1 hour
1 package (16.5 ounces) Nestle Toll House Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough (or your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe)
½ cup prepared vanilla frosting tinted red or pink
1 ¾ cups miniature marshmallows (about 5 – 7 for each cookie)
48 (about 1 Tablespoon) blanched slivered almonds (found in the baking isle)
Prepare cookies as directed on package. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Cut each cookie in half for a total of 48 halves.
Frost bottoms of all cookie halves with frosting. Place 6 marshmallow “teeth” around the curved perimeter of 24 halves. Top with remaining 24 halves.
For additional support an extra marshmallow can be placed behind the “teeth.” Insert two almond slivers in between “teeth” for “fangs.” If “fangs” do not adhere, dip tips into frosting.
