How-To
A parent or older sibling may have to cut the pieces, but even the youngest family member can help add the whiskers and the candy-corn feet.
Substitution
Can’t find black shoestring licorice or candy corn? Use Betty Crocker black decorating gel for the licorice; look for it near the cake and frosting items in your grocery store. For the claws, cut strips of Fruit Roll-Ups® chewy fruit snack rolls.
Variation
Don’t be afraid. It’s easy to turn this kitty cat into the scariest Halloween cat on the block!
