Pizza Mummies

English muffins
Pizza sauce
Black olives
Scallions
Red or green pepper
Cheese sticks or slices

Heat the oven to 350° F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).

Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils.

Lay strips of cheese (you can use a pulled-apart cheese stick) across the muffin for the mummy's wrappings.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.

Apple Spice Cupcakes

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) spice cake mix
1-1/4 cups water
3 eggs
1/3 cup applesauce

FROSTING:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar
Red paste or liquid food coloring
24 pieces black licorice (3/4 inch)
12 green spice gumdrops

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, water, eggs and applesauce on low speed for 30 seconds or just until moistened. Beat on medium for 2 minutes or until smooth. Pour into 24 red paper-lined muffin cups. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth. Stir in food coloring. Frost tops of cupcakes. Insert licorice into centers for apple stems. Cut gumdrops in half; flatten and pinch to form leaves. Place one leaf next to each stem. Yield: 2 dozen.

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 count)
2 1/2 slices (2.5 oz) American cheese slices, quartered
10 large hot dogs
Cooking spray
Mustard or ketchup, if desired

1 . Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate at perforations creating 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese slices into quarters (1/2 slice cheese, cut in half).

2 . Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for "face." On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.

3 . Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on "face".


Thanks for this idea!! I made 16 Mummies and took them to a Halloween party! They were having a contest for Halloween food, but everyone ate them before they started the judging!!! Oh well, we will just call them winners. Today people were still talking about how yummy they were!

The most creative thing there was a skull shaped out of cream cheese and floating in raspberry/chipolte sauce. She decorated the skull with slices of black olives, for teeth, etc. It was really great and I didn't take a photo!!


Thanks!
Katy

Caramel Apple Cake

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsps cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsps vanilla extract
60 caramel candies
3/4 cup walnuts, toasted and finely chopped
wax paper
1 large craft stick

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Grease and flour two 1 1/2-quart oven-safe bowls.

3. Combine 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 2 teaspoons baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt.

4. In a separate bowl, beat together 2 eggs, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups unsweetened applesauce, 1 cup vegetable oil and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and beat until well mixed.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared bowls and bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

6. Allow the cakes to cool in the bowls for 10 minutes, then remove them from the bowls and set them inverted on wire racks to cool completely. Once the cakes have cooled, turn them over and use a long knife to even out their flat tops.

7. Topping: Place 60 caramel candies and 2 tablespoons of water in a medium bowl and microwave on high power for 1 minute. Stir, then heat 30 to 45 seconds more until the mixture is smooth and forms a slow, thick ribbon when dropped from a spoon.

8. Layer the cakes (flat sides together) using a few spoonfuls of the caramel to help hold them in place.

9. Pour the remaining sauce over the cake. The caramel will run down the sides of the cake to cover it completely, or you can spread it with a knife while it's still warm.

10. Let the caramel set for about 20 minutes before pressing the walnuts onto the bottom half of the cake.

11. Cover one half of the craft stick with waxed paper and insert the covered end into the top of the cake.

Lion and Lamb Cupcakes

2 light-colored cupcakes
Yellow icing
5 orange and 1 yellow medium gumdrops
3 chocolate chips
1 piece of red shoestring licorice
White icing
1 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Swoop
2 brown, 1 black, and 1 pink jelly beans
Mini nonpareils

For the lion: Frost a cupcake with yellow icing. For the mane and whiskers, slice 5 orange gumdrops and 1 yellow gumdrop in half vertically. Arrange the orange gumdrop halves around the cupcake as shown. Then cut a small horizontal slit in each yellow gumdrop half. Press three 1-inch pieces of licorice into each slit and set the whiskered gumdrops on the cupcake. Add chocolate chips for eyes and a nose and dot the eyes with icing.

For the lamb: Frost a cupcake with white icing. Using small scissors, shape the sides of a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Swoop to make it triangular. Place it on the cupcake as shown, add brown jelly beans for ears, and cover the remaining space with mini nonpareils. For the eyes and nose, cut the ends off the black and pink jelly beans. Put a dot of frosting on the back of the jelly bean slices and arrange them on the Swoop

Witches Finger Sandwiches



1 (11-oz.) can Pillsbury® Refrigerated Breadsticks
6 small slices pepperoni
12 (2/3-oz.) slices American pasteurized process cheese food
3/4 cup finely shredded lettuce

Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 12 strips. Place flat on ungreased cookie sheet; do not twist. With sharp knife or kitchen scissors, cut 2 small triangles from one end of each dough strip to form a point that resembles a fingertip. Lightly score breadsticks in center to resemble knuckles.

Cut each pepperoni slice into 2 pointed ovals to resemble 2 fingernails. Place 1 pepperoni piece on each breadstick.

Bake at 375°F. for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. If necessary, reapply "fingernails" with small dot of ketchup.

Split each breadstick. Cut each cheese slice into strips and place in breadstick, overlapping strips. Top each with lettuce. If desired, serve with mustard, mayonnaise or ketchup. Serve warm or cold.

My only thought would be that you might put them on a plate, to serve, and then set the plate over a bowl of ice so they stay a little chilled. They might be able to sit out for quite a while like that.

Bumping up for the season!



We had this cake last year. Leota's name is on one of the cookie tombstones. There was a little bit more to it before the picture got taken. LOL I am going to add a fence this year.

We're starting to plan our party - it's great that Halloween is on Saturday this year!

What does everybody have planned?

So cute! What type of cake is it (I'm trying to figure out the crumbles)? Where did you find the skulls and are they edible? What brand of cookie did you use? I'm going to steal this idea for a kids' halloween party. Thanks for posting!
