Halloween Party Mix
10 cup. popcorn
1 (16 oz.) bag of M&M's
1 (14oz.) jar of peanuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup Reese's Pieces
1 cup candy corn
1 cup Halloween gummy candy (worms, spiders and such)
served from a black cauldron.
1 spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 white cake mix
large pkg vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared (I like Bird'sŪ dessert mix)
1 large pkg vanilla sandwich cookies
12 small Tootsie RollsŪ
1 new kitty litter pan
1 new plastic kitty litter pan liner
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).
Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.
Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping
often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix until completely
When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl.
Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to
moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.
Line a new, clean kitty litter box. Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture
into the litter box.
Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until
soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in
the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything
-- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.
Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them
on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top; take one and heat until pliable,
hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and
sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!
