ON the 12th Day of Halloween…

Hand soap
Hand soap anyone? This one was also inspired by “A Ghostly Good Time: The Family Halloween Handbook,” our new fave from Women’s Day Magazine publications, but we tried it with eyeballs, spiders and other embellishments too. Still, who can resist hand soap that contains… a hand?

Melt clear glycerine soap in the microwave. Pour a layer into the bottom of a rectangular mold. (Heck, you can use any plastic Tupperware-type container or even a travel soap dish, as long as the sides are fairly pliable.) Artfully arrange a few fingers – ahem, fake ones are best – in the cooling soap, then pour more of the molten stuff over the fingers to cover. When cool, pop the soap out of the mold and stash it sinkside or in the shower stall, and wait for your guests to shriek. Spiders, eyeballs and other Halloweeny items work well too, as long as the mold is deep enough to cover the goods.

Tune in tomorrow for a little pumpkin bread goodness…
