The perfect touch for a Halloween party: a confection of a centerpiece the kids can make. After the festivities, scoop out portions and wrap for take-home treats.

Microwave 1 jar (7-1/2 oz.) of marshmallow cream uncovered on Medium 1 minute, stir into sugar mixture with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Blend in about 10 drops yellow and 3 drops red food coloring for a pale orange color. Pour into prepared pie plate.

Cool 20 minutes before decorating. Use a gumdrop for stem, a candy watermelon slice for mouth, licorice lace for eyebrows, and gummy or other candies for nose and eyes. Edge face with candy corn. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
