Hershey's Haunted House, a manageable structure at just 9 inches square, is
built on heavy cardboard with double-thick graham cracker walls. The house
is three graham cracker squares wide and three squares tall. The center
support inside (holding up the ceiling) consists of three graham crackers
sandwiched together so the middle one juts above the other two by exactly
one graham cracker square. The walls and roof are "glued" together with

Once the structure dries several hours, it's decorated with candy and more
icing. The bricks, porch floor and front steps are made of Hershey's milk
chocolate bar separated into small rectangular segments. For contrast, the
windows, front door and porch roof are covered with Cookies 'n' Creme white
chocolate candy bar pieces, framed by Twizzlers. The windows are topped
with Reese's miniature peanut butter cup halves. Stacked Rolo candies make
pillars to support the porch roof. The fence is built with Kit Kat wafer
bars for posts and Twizzlers Pull-a-Peels, which also are twisted into
shape to make the spooky trees.

It may be too late for this year's party, but you can order a free copy of
Hershey's Gobblin' Up The Fun booklet with complete directions for the
house and more ideas for treats, decorations, costumes and games. Send a
self-addressed, stamped envelope (with two 32-cent stamps) to: Hershey's
Halloween Booklet Offer, 704 Metro Drive, Lebanon, PA 17042.

Back to the pumpkin cake idea that Leslie Mills is considering from
Cristina Ferrare of The Family Channel's "Home & Family" show. Here's how
to make it: Prepare two packages of Bundt cake mixes, vanilla or lemon, as
directed on the box. Bake the cakes in fluted tube pans according to the
directions, allow to cool completely and set aside. In large bowl, whip up
4 tubs of prepared vanilla frosting until light and fluffy, using an
electric mixer. Dye the frosting deep orange with food coloring.

Place one cake, round part down, on a serving platter. Invert the second
cake and place it on top, lining up the ridges, to resemble a pumpkin
shape. Spread the orange frosting all over top and design the eyes, nose
and mouth with gum drops, M&Ms and assorted other candies. Shape a stem at
the top out of green frosting.

Now that the kids are taken care of, what about the adults who either have
a party of their own to attend, or just want to enjoy the occasion with
their children? If you're short on ideas, Kraft Foods offers a Halloween
Party Hot Line, (888) 572-3875, with suggestions for 18 adult costumes
developed by Bob Ringwood, a Hollywood costume designer.

The costumes are inexpensive to make. For example, you could be a bunch of
grapes by wearing a green sweatshirt and green tights with purple balloons
attached to your body with double-stick tape. Or, become a traffic light by
wearing a black outfit with green, yellow and red construction paper
circles attached to your front and back.

The Kraft hot line also offers ghoulish food ideas from Kraft Creative
