Pear Witch Project Recipe

This ghoulish girl is quite a sight, with her shocking orange hair. Her hat's a cone, her mouth an apple, her head is half a pear!


  • Sharp knife
  • Fresh green pear (makes 2 heads and noses)
  • 2 raisins (eyes)
  • 1 chocolate chip (wart)
  • Red apple (mouth)
  • Canned chocolate frosting
  • Oreo ice-cream cone (hat)
  • Large, soft chocolate cookie (hat); we used an Archway Dutch Cocoa Cookie
  • Carrot (hair) and grater


  1. Cut the pear in half lengthwise and remove the core (a parent's job). Place one pear half on a plate as shown.
  2. Slice a piece off the top of the pear, cutting away from the forehead at an angle. Shape that piece into a nose; carve a notch into the witch's face to hold it, and set it in place.
  3. Attach the eyes and wart by carving small circles in the face to hold them.
  4. Cut a grin from the red apple. Carve out an area on the face to hold the grin, and put it in place.
  5. To make the hat, use frosting to glue the cone to the cookie. Let the frosting harden a bit, then place the hat on the head.
  6. Grate lengths of carrot hair and tuck them underneath the hat. Tip: If your child is too young to handle a knife, cut the nose and mouth and have him assemble the face with frosting.
