Bat Wings, Candy Corn and Witches Brew Too!

Halloween is a favorite time of year around this house.  There isn't anything I don't like about it!  The candy, the costumes, the decorations, the FUN! 

To keep with the spirit of the Halloween fun I whipped up a themed dinner of Bat Wings and Candy Corn.  Both of these recipes come courtesy of my Family Fun Cookbook.  While this candy corn might not be the candy corn I devour by the bagful (did I just admit that?), I have to say, it came a close second to the real candy.  It has a sweet flavor without being overwhelming.  (sorry, I thought I had more pictures of the corn cooking but they must have gotten deleted!)

What fun is it without some dessert though?  My kids LOVED the thought of drinking something called Witches Brew.  It even came out of the blender fizzy and bubbly. 

I hope you scare up some fun and good treats with your family this Halloween!

Toss in the chicken wings and marinate for at least 1 hour.

Broil for 10 minutes on each side, allowing the wings to char slightly.  (I grilled them.  Be sure to spray grates good prior to grilling to prevent sticking!)   Present with sauce for dipping.

CANDY CORN
Ingredients:
1 10 ounce package frozen corn
3 Tbs. butter
1 to 2 Tbs. brown sugar
1/4 cup diced, sweet red pepper
2 scallions, chopped (optional, I chose not to use)

Directions:
Cook the frozen corn according to package directions.  Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat, add the brown sugar, and stir until smooth (be careful the mixture doesn't burn).  Drain the corn and add it to the brown sugar mixture with the red pepper and scallions.  Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Serve hot or cold.
