Ghoulish Goblin Toes

You can never have too many Halloween treats--we'll be featuring plenty in the coming weeks! These are are prefect project for the kids because the messier, the better! Goblin toes are supposed to be ugly!:) Also, "painting" the goblin toeneails was major fun for my girls!
Ghoulish Goblin Toes
Ingredients:
Golden Grahams Cereal
Cocoa Puffs Cereal
Peanut Butter cookies (we used Nutter Butter)
Green Candy Melts
Red Candy Melts
Wax Paper
Clean paintbrushes

Directions:
Gather your ingredients. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat green candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until melted.
Dip cookies in green candy melts and set on wax paper. Place one Golden Grahams "toenail" on the end of each dipped cookie. Let set while you microwave the red candy melts (same technique as above).
Let the kids "paint" the goblin toenails with the red candy melts. My kids pretended it was a "Goblin Day Spa". :)
Press a Cocoa Puff into each cookie for a "wart". Paint over each wart with remaining green candy melts, if desired. Let set completely and serve. Will keep for up to 2 weeks in airtight container in a cool, dry place.
