* 1 cup mini marshmallows
* Metal or plastic scoop
* Orange and black yarn

How to make:
* Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl
* Mix thoroughly
* Scoop mix into rubber gloves, being certain to leave enough room at the top to close
* Tie with orange and black yarn

How to make:

#4 – Bloody Eyeballs

Kids love ghoulish treats. Bloody eyeballs are always a hit with my grandsons! These are easy to make and simple enough that the kids can lend a hand.

What you need:
* Powdered doughnut holes
* Gummy lifesavers
* Semi-sweet chocolate chips
* Red gel icing

How to make:
* Attach one gummy lifesaver to the powdered doughnut hole with red gel icing. This creates the iris of the eye.
* Place semi-sweet chocolate chip in the center of the lifesaver to make the pupil. Attach with red gel icing.
* Use red gel icing to make thin ribbon-like veins around the eyeball.
