Mummy Dogs

 Ingredients: Refrigerated (can) of crescent dinner rolls, 10 hot dogs, cooking spray condiments

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray

4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes.

Witches Fingers Cookies

 This is a two part process but it’s very simple. First up, make sugar cookie dough (below) or use a sugar cookie dry mix.

Sugar Cookie Dough for Witches Fingers

Ingredients: 1 cup sugar, 1 cup better, 2 cups unsifted flour plus 2 tbs, 1 tsp soda, 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp vanilla, grated rind of 1/2 lemon. 

Combine ingredients. Add a few drops of green food coloring and mix well. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Witches “Fingernails”

Ingredients: Package of blanched almonds and red food coloring. To “dye” the almonds, place almonds and red food coloring in a Ziploc bag and shake. When almonds are coated, gently dump out onto a piece of wax paper and let them dry.

Heat over to 350 degrees.

Make “fingers” with dough. Use a spoon to grab some dough and roll into a finger shape. Place on a cookie sheet.

Gently press almond into one side of finger to make a “nail.”

Use a butter knife to make lines in the “fingers.”

Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 (watch them, they can burn quickly).

Tombstome Treats

There are two ways to make these. You can use marshmallows and brownies (below) or for an ever FASTER method– use some pre-made chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos, the “tombstone cookies” and worms of course.  

Ingredients: 2 cups of mini marshmallows, brownies (pre-make), chocolate frosting, Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies, 1 cup crushed Oreos, gummy worms, black writing icing. Other supplies: skull cups. Before you start, you’ll want to use a boxed brownie mix to bake a batch of brownies. Use a large casserole dish so the brownies are thin.

First, fill your skull cups up with mini marshmallows.

Next,  use a drinking glass to cut round brownies out. Place on top of marshmallows.

 Make a cup of Oreo crumbs (12 or so cookies). I like to put them in a large Ziploc bag and use the bottom of a mug to crush them (that way the crumbs stay in the bag). Next, add a little chocolate frosting on top of the brownie and sprinkle the Oreo “dirt” on top.

Finish by wedging tombstone/cookies in and a gummy worm or two.

 Graveyard Bones

Ingredients: Small Marshmallows, small stick pretzels, vegetable oil and  1 bag of Ghiradelli White Chocolate Baking Chips.

Make the “bones” by inserting pretzel into two marshmallows. I made 50. Place the chips in a microwave safe dish and microwave at 1 minute intervals until melted. After chips are melted, add a small amount of vegetable oil to make the chocolate thinner. Use a fork to dip pretzels into chocolate mixture and let them set on wax paper.

Monster Cookies 

Make your favorite chocolate chip (I like the recipe on the Nestle package) or peanut butter cookies. Bake a craft stick in the cookie as a holder and have fun frosting and adding colorful candy faces.

Goblin Bars

Ingredients: 1/8 cup of sprinkles, 1/4 cup broken pretzels, 18 oz (approximately 1 1/2 bags) of Ghiradelli White Chocolate Baking Chips, a 9 x 9 baking dish and parchment paper.

Line the baking dish with the parchment paper. Put the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 1 minute intervals, stirring each time until chips are melted (a rubber spatula does the trick). 

Pour melted chocolate into lined baking dish, smooth over with rubber spatula to make as flat as possible. Add pretzels, mashmallows and sprinkles on top and gently push into chocolate. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Fun Halloween Food

Pumpkin Treats

Ingredients: 5 1/2 cups of Rice Krispie Treats, 6 cups of mini marshmallows, 3 tbs butter, orange food dye, stick pretzels and green icing. Pam cooking spray.

Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan. Add orange food dye and mix well. Dump in Rice Krispies and stir well. Spray hands will Pam(!). After everything is well mixed, form “pumpkins” and add a pretzel stem. After it cools, add green icing.
