     It’s finally Spooky season! The season in which Starbucks serves pumpkin lattes, yards are decorated with ghosts and goblins, trick or treaters are dressed to scare and you often feel like you are breathing dead air.

     Come one and all! We are catering a Monsters' Ball! See the delicious treats that Cooking with Kennedy is making. They are spooky and spectacular!

  • Pour chocolate sprinkles into a small bowl.
  • Unwrap a Rice Krispie Treat and dip the front into the green candy melts. No need to dip the whole thing
  • Press the top of the Rice Krispie Treat into the bowl of sprinkles so that the sprinkles stick to the wet candy melts to make Frankie’s hair.

  • Once the candy melts have set, use black piping gel to make a mouth.
