As Halloween is a time of great sugar consumption, I thought I would add a simple and fun recipe/activity that, bar one of the ingredients, is actually pretty healthy!  This is also a great one for kids parties - and in fact Mum used to make it for all our birthdays. 


1 bag pitted prunes (the softer the better)
1 bag jellybeans
about 1/2 cup slivered almonds
about 10 licorice straps/lengths, chopped into quarters


To assemble

Stuff prunes with a jellybean.
Poke slivered almonds into 'head' for ears.
Push licorice strap into end of prune for 'tail'.
