31 Oct


Coconut Macroon’s.

Coconut

I was Surprised !! Everything was so quick on that day(Last Friday). Getting up from bed, Breakfast, & getting ready to Kindergarten. All was because of a Magic word Halloween, that I whispered to Riya. Yes, Riya was so excited and dressed up like Witch with face makeup and she did enjoy thoroughly the Halloween Celebration in her School. It’s Halloween time here which is usually celebrated on 31st of October. During this season one can see lot of Pumpkins  in the shops with different shapes and sizes. I believe, Pumpkins here is mostly used for making jack-o’-lanterns (Pumpkin lamp which is carved like a scary face) more than it’s consumption.

When I supposed to send a Halloween party food to KG, immediately I thought of Marshmallow and making dress like Ghosts. For the Ghosts body I don’t want to go for cupcakes, as children usually have it in almost all party’s. I wanted something which look like a cone and tastes yum. I found this Coconut Macroon recipe here and it turned out very well. To make up this 50 ghosts it didn’t take much time, and to makeup my witch it took a little longer but we were on time.  When I asked Riya to taste one of those,  she picked up white one and said in real ghosts look like white, so I will take white. She did like it and asked for more with one pink and one blue.

Here is the Recipe….

2. Add vanila Sugar or any flavour and add coconut. Stir it for 5 minutes in a slow heat.

3. Now shape this into cones with hand and place it in a baking tray.
