Quick, easy, disgusting, but tasty! This can also be done with dried cherries.

My two sons thought this was the best. idea. ever. My husband did, too, to be honest. What an unique and fun idea for gross food not just for Halloween but for boys who like to pretend to eat gross things.


The kids in my class last year loved this! Will be making again this year.

This is creepy, weird, and gross! I guess, that makes it good for Halloween. The recipe says cranberries or cherries work. I had both, so I tried each one. The cherries tasted by far better, but the cranberries looked real. Only thing is, I can't imagine pressing an entire bowl of these! I did about 20 total and was done. I would take a pic, but quite frankly they just look pretty yucky!
