Halloween Party Treats

As you make your final preparations for a small gathering of friends or a large Halloween Party, consider these super easy and hauntingly delicious recipes!

Blood & Bones
1 Bag of Popcorn (popped)
4 Tbsp Melted Butter
3-5 Drops Red Food Coloring
Large Stainless Steel Bowl

Pop the popcorn and put it into a stainless steel bowl for serving. In a microwave safe glass or bowl, melt the butter. Remove from microwave and add food coloring, stirring with a spoon. Gently pour over the popcorn and serve.
Alternative: If you want to make it extra wicked, sprinkle with some paprika for a little spice!

Mummy Pizzas
Bagels (small or large, cut in half)
Tomato or Pizza Sauce
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Green Olives with Pimentos (cut in half)

On a cookie sheet, lay out all the bagel halves and spread a thin layer of Tomato or Pizza sauce on each one. Place two green olive halves next to each other for eyes, and then top with the shredded cheese above and below the eyes. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden.

Monster Toes
1 Package Cocktail Sausages
2 Containers Crescent Rolls
Ketchup or BBQ Sauce

Slice the crescent roll dough in short thin strips. Taking a strip, wrap it around each sausage, but only covering one half of the sausage. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake to the specifications on the crescent roll package, usually 11-13 minutes. After allowing them to cool, take a small knife and carve a sliver off the exposed sausage end. Then in the crevasse, put a squirt of ketchup or BBQ sauce to make a toenail.
Alternative: you can also use thin strips of Tortillas for the wrappings instead of the crescent rolls. Maybe try the green pesto tortillas for a monster effect!
