Let your cauldron boil over with tasty treats
from Mr. Food(R) that are perfect for Halloween parties and other

Have a frighteningly good time when your hungry little "monsters"
help you make some special Halloween treats using Mrs. Smith's
Pumpkin Pie. With a few simple tricks and some added treats, you
can use Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin pies to create jack-o'-lantern faces,
ghosts and goblins for the whole family. "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!(R)"
"Kids love helping you in the kitchen and it doesn't have
to be a scary experience. With just a few ingredients and no fussing,
you and your kiddies can make a ready-to-bake pumpkin pie into
your family's own creepy creation," said Mr. Food, the popular
TV chef who appears in cooking segments nationwide.
Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin pies come in three varieties: Special Recipe
Homemade Pumpkin, Hearty Pumpkin or Pumpkin Custard. These "to
die for" treats will surely be a favorite for the young or
the young at heart.
Halloween is a really big party time, so Mrs. Smith's has come
up with some fun ideas for turning a pumpkin pie into favorites
that your gang will be "goblin" up in no time -- and
each starts simply with a Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin Pie (any variety)
baked according to the package directions and cooled.
Jack-O'-Lantern Pumpkin Pie: With
a paring knife, carve out a jack-o'-lantern face from the pie,
removing the cutouts (these are a great bonus for the carvers).
Mix whipped topping with a drop or two of yellow food color and
spoon into a plastic storage bag with a corner snipped off. Squeeze
the mixture into the cut-out areas so that, with its yellow glow,
your edible jack-o'-lantern looks illuminated from inside! Place
a miniature candy bar at the top to create the look of a stem
for a realistic finishing touch.
Goblin's Delights: Grab your Halloween
cookie cutters and cut ghost and goblin shapes out of the pie,
pushing firmly to cut through the crust. Cover the shapes completely
with hardshell ice cream topping, such as Magic Shell. Decorate
with candy corn, black licorice, and your favorite candies, using
prepared chocolate frosting as the "glue."
Pumpkin Ghosts: Cut pie into eight
wedges and frost all the way around and the top of each wedge
with whipped topping. With the top as the point of the ghosts'
heads, use M&M's and candy corn to make fun ghostly faces.
