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.

    Found your blog hopping around food blogs and am LOVING it! I’m a firm believe that peanut butter and chocolate make everything better—so all your recipes are just amazing. Can’t wait to try them out. I’m planning on making the peanut butter chocolate covered brownies bites tomorrow. Thanks!

    Ha ha ha. Those Monster Apple Mouths are so cute ~ they make me laugh. I want to make some of those for my nephews. Thanks for the creative idea!

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

    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!!

    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!

    1. Chris

      Try using soybutter. Tastes like peanut butter and has same testure! Great substitute without the allergies!

  18. Nir

    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?

  19. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is

    I love the mummy dogs! Sometimes I get a huge craving for hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls…I love them.
