Ingredients:

4-6 orange bell peppers, 8 ounces elbow macaroni, 1¼ cups half-and-half, 2 tablespoons ghee, 4 ounces mild cheddar, shredded

  • Bring to a boil a sizable saucepan of salted water.
  • Add the macaroni and cook for 6-7 minutes, or until al dente. Set aside 1 cup of pasta water
  • Remove the pepper tops and set them aside while the pasta cooks. Seeds and membranes should be removed. Each pepper should have a Jack-o-lantern face carved into the side using a sharp knife.
  • Bring the half-and-half to a simmer in a big saucepan over medium heat. Continue to boil for 10 minutes more to decrease the liquid by about 3/4 cup. Ghee is added while continuing to whisk the cheddar until it is smooth.
  • After removing the pan from the heat, mix in the macaroni. If the sauce needs to be thinner, add some of the pasta water that was set aside. Let it sit for 10 mins
  • Once the mac and cheese has been distributed among the peppers, cover each with a pepper top.

Ingredients:

Green candy melts, Marshmallows, Small pretzel rods, Semisweet chocolate chips, Candy eyeballs, Edible red and black markers, lollipop sticks or colourful straws

  • Melt the green candy melts in a double boiler or microwave until completely melted.
  • Incorporate the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows before dipping them into the melted candy and twisting them to completely cover them. Place the glass in the refrigerator for 5 minutes, or until the chocolate has somewhat cooled and set, then stand the marshmallows upright in it.
  • In a double boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate chunks until smooth. Each of the covered marshmallows' tops should be dipped in chocolate to create the hair, and spikes of hair should be created by dragging the chocolate down toward the marshmallow's base with lollipop sticks. After about five minutes, put the marshmallows back in the refrigerator to let the chocolate firm.
  • To create the small (about 1/8-inch) "bolts" for Frankenstein's neck, break the ends off of the pretzel rods. One pretzel should be carefully inserted into each side of the marshmallow, about one-third of the way up.
  • Apply two little chocolate dots and the candy eyeballs to each marshmallow with lollipop sticks and the remaining melted chocolate.
  • Draw a mouth with the black food marker and a laceration on Frankenstein's forehead using the red edible marker. The marshmallow pops can be consumed right away or kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container until you're ready to serve.
