While Halloween is always fun for adults, it’s the kids who absolutely delight in all things creepy and scary. Add to their fun this year, both at parties and just for some every day Halloween excitement, with these Spooky (and delicious) Snacks!
- 20 Oreo Cookies
- 1 Tub Vanilla Frosting
- 60 chocolate chips
Spread a generous layer of frosting onto the top of each cookie, using your knife to draw off the excess in a ghostly “tail”. Add inverted chocolate chip eyes and mouth and plate up for some sweet scary fun!
Witches Hat Crispy Treats
- 2 cups puffed rice cereal
- 4 Milky Way or Mars Bars
- 1/2 cup butter
- Witch Hat Cookie Cutter
Melt the butter and candy bars in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in the cereal and turn to coat completely. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased pan and press into the corners, making sure the surface is fairly smooth. Once the cereal bars are cool, cut out witches hats using a cookie cutter or simply cut into triangles with a sharp knife.
- 8 Hot dogs
- 1 package crescent rolls
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Unroll the crescent rolls but do not separate the triangles. Instead, use a pizza cutter to cut 16 thin strips. Starting at the top of the hotdog, wrap one strip around, leaving a gap for the “face” and continue wrapping down the hotdog. Use a second strip of dough to wrap up in the opposite direction creating a criss-cross effect. Use a skewer to poke “eyes” before placing in the oven on a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes or until the dough has turned golden.
Ice Cream Witches
- 1 tub mint chocolate chip ice cream
- 8 chocolate ice cream cones
- Black liquorice shoestrings
- Chocolate chips, jimmies and other small candies
Place a large, rounded scoop of ice cream onto each serving plate. Use the candies to create the “face” for the witch and the liquorice stings for hair. Top with an ice cream cone “hat” and serve up to your favorite little goblins!
