Countdown to a Frugal Halloween: 5 days to GO!

Betty Crocker Bug Juice


1/2 Cantaloupe melon
4 Bamboo skewers for bug garnish
Betty Crocker® Cloud White Cupcake Icing
Cake Mate® Monster Mix Decors
2 tablespoons Cake Mate® Green Apple Decors
2 cups apple cider
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1-2 drops Betty Crocker® Green Gel Food Color
1 1/2 c seltzer


Use a melon baller to scoop 8-10 cantaloupe melon balls. Skewer them 2-3 at a time and insert the opposite end of the skewers back into the remaining cantaloupe to hold them steady. Decorate them with Betty Crocker Cupcake Icing and Cake Mate® Decors Monster Mix to resemble little bugs.

Place green apple sugar on small plate. Rim 4 - 8 oz glasses by running a small slice of lime around the rim the glasses just to moisten them, then dip them into the sugar.

Mix apple cider and lime juice in a 1 quart measuring cup. Add food coloring one drop at a time to reach desired color.

Fill the 4 rimme
ed glasses with ice. Divide the juice between them and top with seltzer. Garnish with Bug skewers.
