Maggie Armatys from the Lazy Girls Kitchen on YouTube stopped by the Woonsocket Harris Public Library and taught everyone from preschoolers to high schoolers how to make delightfully spooky brownies with a variety of candy toppings. This is a great idea if you have a Halloween Party or family gathering and can adapt it for your family activity. This was so much fun. Don't worry we will have her back for more foodie fun at the library very soon. Until then enjoy the video.
