Candy Coating: Look for colored candy disks at crafts stores. They come in a variety of colors and melt for dipping and decorating. Our critters use white, green, orange and black. Apply eyes and mouths with a small brush or toothpick. Dip twice for a contrasting face and body {see Dracula}, or drizzle stripes {see Mummy}. Make sure the candy sets between colors; chilling speeds the process.
Sprinkles:  For a fuss-free treat, roll a dipped rod in seasonal sprinkles or decorating sugar. Nonpareils and sprinkles also make good eyes and noses.
Gumdrops:  Mold a dark gumdrop into a pointed witch’s hat.
Fruit Leather: Snip colorful fruit leather into strips of hair {see Witch} or accessories {see Dracula’s bow tie}.
