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,  happy halloween baking!

(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.

    Thank you for sharing this good idea. I’ve made these several times now and my fella smiles every time I put them on the table. I’ve featured your project in my “Halloween Meals” blog post so that others can stop by and enjoy your creativity too.

    Helpful info. Lucky me I discovered your website accidentally, and I am shocked why this twist of fate did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  3. Authentic Chinese Recipes

    The cooking way of Bug-apillar Banana Dude is a little weird, but I’ll try it later. Just one question: How can I add your blog into my RRS Reader? Thanks a lot:)

    Those breadstick mummy dogs are the cutest things I’ve seen in ages! Cannot wait to make them. You’re a genius!

    LOVE the hotdog mummys! wondering….PotLuck for work on Friday in honor of Halloween, how would one bake these overnight and then keep them warm or warm them up the following day? I imagine nuking them would make them soggy ;S

  6. Emily

    I cannot wait til my 15 month old is old enough to appreciate these fun ways to “play” with food! You just brought back so many memories of my parents doing things like these for us for halloween dinner. And it usually consisted of hotdogs with crescent rolls!

    THanks for sharing.. I teach a kids cooking class and these will be perfect for our halloween class next week! Love your blog!

    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!

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

  10. Linds

    So fun! I’m definitely going to use some of those ideas for my son’s preschool Halloween party!

  11. Holly

    So cute! Love the Halloween ideas. You are so talented. Everything I have ever made off of here has been amazing! Thanks! 🙂

  12. Jenny M

    I absolutely loved the mummy hot dogs! I’m making them for my son this year 🙂 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’m still laughing at your mummy dogs! With their little mustard eyes. So cute!
    Clever girl!
