Here are a few recipes that are simple enough for the kids to make/help you out with next week!
Crescent Roll Mummies
package of crescent rolls - you'll make 8, so use more if you have more to feed
package of hot dogs
mustard and ketchup
Unroll crescent rolls and separate to form 4 rectangles- pinch together the perforations (You could also buy the new recipe creations crescent dough and work from there).
Using your kitchen shears, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 strips
Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog (you may use less)- you'll stretch the dough as you work around the hot dog. You could tuck a piece of cheese behind the hot dog before you wrap it up- but I opted out of that.
Separate the dough just a bit so that you can "make a face" after it's cooked.
Bake at 375 on an ungreased cookie sheet for 13-16 minutes- until golden brown. Make a face on your mummy dog with the mustard!
string cheese or shredded mozzarella
toppings- olives for eyeballs!
toast your english muffins under the broiler for a few minutes
top with some sauce and lay the cheese in a "mummy-esque" fashion across the muffin
place 2 olives on for eyes.
Remind the kids they can take the olives off and feed them to Daddy if they don't like them
Bake in the oven about 10 minutes or until warmed through.
Serve with "green fries" (aka green beans) and ketchup
Halloween marshmallows floating in a cup of hot cocoa! Mmmmm.... They were bats and ghosts but they melted a wee bit before I could take their photo!
Still to come... those bite size caramel apples... so adorable you'll cry!
