Halloween Treats

On Sunday evening, the kids and I made these fun "Mummy Dogs" as part of our dinner. They're so cute. One of their favorite things about Halloween, besides costumes and candy, is making fun food and spooky treats. I like it too. We get to spend time together and make something cute and yummy. We all got a kick out of these. They tasted pretty good,too.

Mummy Dogs
1 pkg. beef franks
1 pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls or bread sticks

Unroll crescent rolls and roll between hands to make a long rope. Wrap around beef frank starting at the end. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 for about 15 mins. or until rolls are browned.
Make mummy eyes by dotting with mustard.

After dinner, we made dessert. Spooky spiders and witch hats. We have made different Halloween treats over the years, eyeballs, fingers, ghosts, etc., but these were a first. I think they're keepers. The kids really enjoyed making these......and eating them.

Witch Hats
Keebler Grasshopper cookies(any flat cookie would work)
Hershey Kisses
Icing in piping bag

Put a dot of icing on bottom of a kiss and set kiss on top of cookie. Line kiss with icing or decorate to your liking.

Cookie Spiders
Keebler Grasshopper cookies
peanut butter

Spread peanut butter on bottom of one cookie. Break pretzels to make spider legs. Set pretzels on peanut butter topped cookie. Four on each side. Top with another cookie. Squeeze two dots of icing on top of the cookie for eyes.

Laci was really into this. She even put hair on her spider(with icing). Creepy!

Trent was whippin' out spiders and hats pretty quick. The witch hats were his favorite to eat, spiders favorite to make.
