The American Association of Orthodontists has put together a collection of recipes that are disgustingly perfect treats for Halloween. And, they have an added bonus - they are safe for kids with braces to eat without fear of damage to their orthodontic work.
For most kids, overflowing bags of Halloween candy are the highlights of the season. But, many of the foods can mean big trouble for trick-or-treaters who wear braces. "If it's sticky, chewy, hard or crunchy, it's a food that anyone wearing braces or retainers should avoid," says Dr. James J. Caveney, president of the AAO.

Spider Web Recipe


    96 pretzel sticks
    1 cup vanilla flavored chips
    1 tablespoon solid shortening
    12 raisins or chocolate chips


1.  On a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, arrange pretzel sticks in groups of eight to resemble spokes of a wheel.

2.  In a resealable freezer-weight plastic bag, combine vanilla chips and shortening; seal bag. Immerse bag in a bowl of very hot water for 2 to 3 minutes; gently squeeze bag to mix. Repeat process until all chips have melted.

3.  Snip a small corner of the bag and squeeze a dime-sized blob in the center of each group of pretzels to bind them together.

4.  Press a raisin (or chocolate chip) in center to resemble spider.

5.  Pipe thin circles of melted chips over the pretzels to resemble strands of a web.
6.  Refrigerate webs for about 15 minutes or until firm. Carefully remove webs from waxed paper.
