Fun Halloween Recipes!


Good Thursday!

Here’s a little blast from the past for you today. I LOVE these Halloween recipes that I did last year. I am actually doing a couple of them in my little guys preschool class tomorrow morning that should be fun!

Halloween is going to be here before we know it! Both my boys decided they want to be skeletons, phew that’s easy. I am trying to find a couples costume for my husband and I this year. I just can’t make my mind up! I saw a bacon and eggs costume that is just adorable! I might have to order it today. Catch ya’ll later,Β  happy halloween baking!


Breadstick Mummy Dogs

1 roll/pkg Pillsbury Breadstick dough (12 count)

12 hot dogs

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll all 12 breadsticks from package. Cut each into 3 equal strips. Take 3 strips, one at a time and wrap around 1 hot dog starting from the top of the hot dog. (Each hot dog has 3 thin breadstick strips around it). Leave a small space towards the top of the hotdog to make mustard eyes. Continue wrapping all dogs then place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

2. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes. Use mustard or ketchup for the eyes.


Bug-apillar Banana Dude

1 ripe banana

Creamy Peanut Butter

Pretzel Sticks


Red Fruit Snacks

1. Cut banana into 1 inch slices. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on each slice (minus the last piece) then press gently back together, curving slightly if desired. Break pretzel sticks in half, then press into sides of banana for legs. Dip 2 raisins in peanut butter and stick on front banana slice for eyes, then dip red fruit snack in peanut butter and stick on bottom of banana slice for the tongue.


Ooozing Monster Apple Mouths

1 large Apple of choice

Peanut Butter

Mini Marshmallows

1. Core then cut the apple into fourths. Cut out a small wedge on the skin side of the apple. Blot inside with a paper towel then spread lightly with creamy peanut butter. Cut mini marshmallows in half and place over peanut butter to make the teeth.


Have a great weekend! See you all soon!

    Hi, thanks for the great recipes!
    In the mummy dogs, should the hot dogs be prepared (ready to eat) before I wrap and bake them?

    The oozing mouths are too cute! We’re having a fall celebration in my Pre-K class on the 30th. I wish I could bring those, but we have a student with a severe peanut allergy. Have a great weekend!

    My little guy is going to be a skeleton too. We bought one of the cute skeleton shirts at Old Navy, I found a skull mask at Walmart for $2.00!! Then I got skeleton gloves at the Halloween store and bought black sweats, I’ve got to get some white felt to make the pelvis and legs! It should be cute and not too expensive! I love putting together Halloween costumes. I think I will try the breadstick mummydogs too!!

    I would think that if you have someone with a nut allergy, you could substitute the peanut butter with caramel.

    I absolutely loved the mummy hot dogs! I’m making them for my son this year πŸ™‚ and I love the apples and bananas but I might have to find something else to replace the peanut butter as my son is allergic to peanuts. Maybe almond butter?

    Thanks for the post!

    I think this might be our Halloween night dinner πŸ™‚ haha! Maybe I can get my picky 2 year old son to eat some fruit if I “dress” it up silly like this.

  48. 48

    I’m a huge pig-in-the blanket fan. It’s just one of those childhood foods I still love. Your use of breadstick dough is really clever (so much healthier than the puff pastry typically used). The apples & peanut butter are so cute .. though I can live without the spiders!
