My kids have a kind of a bento lunch for school lunch everyday and I was looking for ways to add Halloween fun without it being sugary. So when I saw the "Candy Corn Cracker" recipe, I was really excited to try it!!
Start off by making the dough from a recipe by King Arthur's Flour. (I followed it just as written) Click HERE to see that recipe. The recipe calls for Vermont powdered cheese, but cheddar cheese powder (that's what I used) works just fine. (Click HERE to see the recipe I found for the crackers) When your dough has come together you will need to divide it into thirds. Spread out a piece of plastic wrap and place one third of the dough in a small rectangle in the middle of the plastic wrap. With the other 2 pieces of dough you will need to color one third yellow, and one third orange. I used regular old food coloring drops from the grocery store. Layer the orange layer on top of the plain dough and the yellow on top. Wrap up the dough and let it cool in the fridge for a half hour.

Bake the crackers at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes. They will puff up slightly but not really spread out.
My crackers came out light and puffy, but I think they were suppose to be kind of crunchy. It was hard to slice them thin enough, but I still think they are really yummy!! Happy Halloween!!
