Jeepers Peepers

Serve these savory bites -- made with a kid-friendly combo of cheese and crackers -- and watch them disappear in a blink of the eye. For each, halve a mozzarella ball and place one half on a round cracker (we used melba toast). Add veins, using thinly sliced roasted red bell pepper, as shown, and a black olive slice for the pupil.

Wickedly Tasty Witch

We've cleverly crafted a scene pulled right from Dorothy's famous adventure. Complete with a chocolate graham cracker roof, licorice legs, and molded taffy shoes, each sweet rendition is a whimsical nod to a (not-so-) beloved character.

Creepy Crawlers

This swarm of edible insects may look too repulsive to eat, but their various parts -- nutritious goodies, such as dates, raisins, banana chips, and apricots -- make them delightfully sweet.

For each bug, start with a dried fruit body as noted, then add various parts by pushing them into place. If needed, use a toothpick or paring knife to first make small holes or slits.

Bug-eyed Spider Body: whole date; Legs: chow mein noodles; Eyes: white chocolate chips

Tiny Flies Bodies: raisins; Wings: almond slices

Monster Fly Body: whole date; Legs: chow mein noodles; Eyes: sunflower seeds; Wings: banana chips

Orange Creepers Bodies: apricots; Legs: sunflower seeds; Antennae: chow mein noodles
