Let’s Put the Candy Down

It’s the time of year for trick-or-treating, chocolates, sweets, candy apples . . . geez we eat a lot of candy this time of year. With everyone getting their sugar rush from everywhere, maybe a few non-sweet treats wouldn’t go amiss at your Halloween party. Here are three great recipes to try:

Mummy Pizzas
Even on this candy laden day, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who would say “no” to pizza. So here are some mini-pizzas with a haunted twist. You’ll need:

  • English Muffins
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mozzarella Sticks
  • Black Olives
  • Green Onions

Step 1: Cut your mozzarella sticks into thin strips – these are the mummy wrappings
Step 2: Cut your olives and green onions into rings – these are the eyes
Step 3: Put the pizza sauce on the English Muffin
Step 4: Now dress your pizza up like a mummy!
Step 5: Bake in the oven (350º) for about 10 minutes

Voila! Mummy pizzas.

Monster Toes
Here’s an easy, tasty snack for any party. You’ll need:

  • Cocktail Wieners
  • Tortillas
  • Ketchup
  • Toothpicks

Step 1: Cut a small divot into the tip of each cocktail wiener – this is where the ketchup “toenail” will go
Step 2: Cut your tortillas into about 4” x 3/4” strips – these are the bandages
Step 3: Wrap the end of the cocktail wieners in the tortilla strips and stick a toothpick through the whole thing
Step 4: Bake in the oven (350º) for about 8 minutes
Step 5: Take the toes out of the oven and put a dab of ketchup into the divots on the cocktail wieners

You’ve now got a plate of Monsters Toes to eat tonight!

Salty Bones
What’s better to munch on than a pile of bones? You’ll need:

  • A tube of breadstick dough
  • Coarse salt

Step 1: Open up the tube, spread out the dough, and separate it into rectangles
Step 2: Cut slits in the end of each rectangle – about 1” to 1.5” – and roll the slits into little balls. These are the knobs at the end of the bones
Step 3: Once all the bones are prepped and on an un-greased baking sheet, sprinkle some salt on them and bake for about 12 minutes (use the cooking temperature they recommend on the tube)

Once the bones cool down a bit, you’ll have a great party snack you can really snap into!

We hope these treats make your Halloween party even more delectable! Thanks to FamilyFun.go.com for the great recipes!
