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.

Made with store-bought cookies and candies, these green monsters are easy for party guests to assemble in a home laboratory.
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.
