bandaidcookies.jpgIt's that time of year of again...where gross food is welcomed by the little boys that inhabit my house. Nothing brings a smile to their face like something bloody, goopy, poopy or oozy when Halloween is in the air. They love it.

I saw these cookies and thought, my kids need to be welcomed home from school with these somewhat authentic looking bloody band-aids.

Sure enough, they were a hit. And really, these are not even a recipe, I mean there is nothing to their construction, but they got rave reviews. I could have baked all day from scratch and not gotten the fan fare these received. Go figure.

So put these on your Halloween menu...the kids will love the grossness. I mean, remember the Kitty Litter Cake? Their all-time favorite.

Graham Crackers
White Frosting
Red Decorator's Gel

Break graham crackers into eight sections.  Smear on white frosting of your choice and one drop of red decorator's gel is enough (it runs).

Serve on a plate with real Band-Aids.  Smiles and grossed out faces to follow.
