I have been collecting Halloween recipes for the past few years, here are some of my favs. Lots more in the replies! - Mandee
Use breadstick dough (store bought or homemade) and cut into strips. Use scissors to snip the ends into 2 pieces and roll them down to make the bone shape. Dip in “bloody” marinara! For extra flavor sprinkle with garlic and Parmesan.
Melt chocolate chips on stove top and gather goodies for the topping.Spread melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil, and sprinkle with candy bar toppings. Use a small piece of wax paper to gently press the loose candies into the chocolate. Melt white chocolate and/or peanut butter chips in the microwave and drizzle on top. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and then break into pieces.
Tip: Be careful with the melted chocolate & the younger kids. Younger kids can help pick out the candies, crush them up & sprinkle them.
- 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
- 12 giant roasting marshmallows
- 1 1/4 cups prepared vanilla frosting
- 4 large plates
- String licorice
- 1 tablespoon NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 3 pieces WONKA® LAFFY TAFFY®, any flavor
- Pretzel sticks or toothpicks
PREPARE cookies as directed on package. Cool completely.
CUT marshmallow in half lengthwise. Frost cut side of marshmallows and place each on a cookie. Trim off excess cookie around marshmallows so that the marshmallow and cookie are the same shape. The cookie crumbs can be saved and used for an ice cream topping or in a shake.
LIGHTLY FROST marshmallows. For each doll, position 6 body parts on each plate for the head, body, arms and legs. To keep from sliding, a small amount of frosting can be used as glue on the bottom of each cookie.
CUT licorice into small pieces for stitching and for the mouths. Place morsels for eyes and buttons.
FOR PINS, pinch off a small piece of Laffy Taffy and roll into small balls. Insert pretzel sticks. If using toothpicks, discard pins before eating.
• If string licorice is not available, tubes of decorator gel or icing can be used for stitching.
Another fun Halloween treat to make with your little ones. Older ones can carefully do the dipping and the younger ones can roll on the sprinkles.
Melt down white chocolate (you really could use regular too) Using large breadstick like pretzels, dip them in the chocolate and then immediately roll in your fav Halloween sprinkles.
Tip: Change up the sprinkles to make it for any theme!
Spider Web Dip
This trick works for pretty much any dip that you could pipe sour cream on top of! Put some sour cream in a plastic baggie with the end snipped off and use it to draw a web pattern. Throw on a fake spider or two and your favorite party dip is instantly creepy!
(My actual pic from when I made them)
Just slice hotdogs and drop them into boiling water for just a minute or two and they’ll curl a bit. Drain and put in a large bowl & add BBQ sauce. Eat alone or on buns!
Tip: You can have the kids cut up the hot dogs & stir the up the sauce. I put mine in the crock pot after I made them to keep warm during our party.
