Fun and Scary Halloween Food

We are closer to Halloween! Many of you may know that I am a compulsive planner. I will plan meals for the week, workouts for the weekly trips to the doctor, and holidays; I even plan how I will plan things (it is a curse, I know!).

One thing I like to do in advance is trying out recipes for the big day. Normally, I like to go scarier 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 mummies (since Rory really likes mummy’s lately), and wild eyeballs.

1. Creepy Hotdog Mummies

This hotdog mummies are so easy and fun to make. They look so realistic too!

Ingredients Needed to Make Hotdog Mummies

  • refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • hotdogs (or veggie dogs)
  • knife
  • toothpicks
  • mustard

How to Make Hotdog Mummies

  1. Cut our hotdogs in half, but you can use the whole hotdog if you want.
  2. Cut our crescent roll dough into little strips and then just wrapped them around the hot dogs like a mummy. Make sure to leave a little slit at the top for the mummies’ eyes.
  3. Bake them in the oven according to the crescent roll directions.
  4. When they come out, using a toothpick put little dots on the hot dog for the mummies’ eyes.

Say cheese!

2. Scary Apple Mouths

How about some realistic scary apple mouth with creepy teeth? It’s so easy!

These were Rory’s favorite of the Halloween foods. She pretended like they were her mouth, made them talk, and loved eating them!

Ingredients Needed to Make Apple Mouths

  • apples
  • peanut butter
  • sliced almonds
  • knife

How to Make Scary Apple Mouths

  1. Quarter the apples and cut out the core.
  2. Using the knife, make two slits making a mouth shape, but be careful not to cut through the apple.  
  3. Gently pull out the mouth shape. Using your knife, put a little bit of peanut butter inside the apple.
  4. Take the sliced almonds and have them stick to the peanut butter making them look like teeth.

Creepy eyes!

4. Realistic Creepy Eyeballs

These deviled eyes are cool, scary and tasty. Pretty weird combination, but it’s fine!

Ingredients Needed to Make Realistic Creepy Eyeballs

  • hard boiled eggs
  • materials to make deviled eggs (we used egg yolks, mustard, mayo, paprika, salt, pepper, and relish)
  • black olives
  • ketchup
  • toothpick

How to Make Realistic Creepy Eyeballs

  1. 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.)
  2. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, and save the yolks.
  3. With the yolks, make deviled eggs. (We mashed up the egg yolks with mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, a bit of paprika and some relish).
  4. 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!
  5. Put a spoonful of the deviled eggs into the open egg yolk. In the middle of the egg, place one of the olives.
  6. Using the toothpick, place little squiggle lines outside the olive to make the eye look stressed.
