Do you like to scare up an exciting Halloween menu for the month of October? This post is full of easy recipes for cute Halloween food. Have a look around Kids Activities Blog and you’ll see that we love fun food ideas like these!
We are one week closer to Halloween! Many of you may know that I am a compulsive planner. I will plan meals for the week, workouts for the week, trips to the doctor, and for holidays; I even plan about how I am going to plan things (it is a curse, I know!) One thing I like to do in advance is try out recipes for the big day.
Normally, I like to go more scary for Halloween, but this year we are going to make three cute (not too spooky) dishes that Rory is going to love! We are making; spooky apple mouths, marvelous mummy’s (since Rory really likes mummy’s lately), and wild eyeballs!
Materials Needed for Mummy’s:
- refrigerated crescent roll dough
- hotdogs (or veggie dogs)
To make the mummy’s, we cut our hotdogs in half, but you can use the whole hot dog if you want. We cut our crescent roll dough into little strips and then just wrapped them around the hot dogs like a mummy. (Rory sampled the dough, but spit it out quickly!) Make sure to leave a little slit at the top for the mummy’s eyes.
Bake them in the oven according to the crescent roll directions. When they come out, using a toothpick put little dots on the hot dog for the mummy’s eyes.
Materials Needed for Apple Mouths:
- peanut butter
- sliced almonds
Quarter the apples and cut out the core. Using the knife, make two slits making a “mouth” shape, but be careful not to cut through the apple. gently pull out the “mouth” shape. Using your knife, put a little bit of peanut butter inside the apple. Take the sliced almonds and have them “stick” to teh peanut butter making them look like teeth.
These were Rory’s favorite of the Halloween foods. She pretended like they were her mouth, made them talk, and loved eating them!
Scary Halloween Food
- Materials Needed for Eyeballs:
- hard boiled eggs
- materials to make deviled eggs (we used egg yolks, mustard, mayo, paprika, salt, pepper, and relish)
- black olives
Hard boil your eggs. (Bring eggs to a boil. I normally boil them for 3-5 minutes, then turn off the heat and cover them.) Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, and save the yolks.
With the yolks, make deviled eggs. (We mashed up the egg yolks with mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, a bit of paprika and some relish). When you have finished making your deviled eggs, cut the olives. With the olives laying on their side, slice very thin. Rory had to sample every olive to make sure they all tasted ok! These olives are your eyeballs!
Put a spoonful of the deviled eggs into the open egg yolk. in the middle of the egg, place one of the olives. Using the toothpick, place little squiggle lines outside the olive to make the eye look stressed.
Hope you had fun making our Halloween Treats!
