Yummy Mummy Hot Dogs

If you like pigs in a blanket, then you will love these appetizing Yummy Mummy Halloween themed nibbles. It has the same classic concept as the hors d’oeuvre but with an added charming twist to fit the season perfectly. With only a couple of key ingredients needed and about 30 to 45 minutes of cooking time, you can serve these whenever you please.

Things you’ll need:

  • 1 pack of hot dogs.
  • 1 can of refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheets.
  • Sliced American cheese, quartered. (optional)
  • Mustard or ketchup. (optional)
  • Cooking spray.
  • Knife.

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 375°F ( 190°C ) and start to prepare the spread. Unroll the dough sheets and cut them into four rectangles, then using a knife, cut each rectangle along the longest side making 10 strips for each one. If desired, cut the cheese slices into quarters and leave aside for later.

Step 2 - After all, the dough has been cut into strips. Take 4 pieces of them and wrap them around the hotdog adding one slice of cheese in between the meat and pastry, then repeat the process for each. This will give the hot dog a mummy wrapped in gauze effect. Leave a gap with the pastry at one of the end so that the monster can show a bit of face that will be added later.

Step 3 - Spray down a light coat of cooking spray for an easy removal process then place all the “mummies” on the cooking sheet and with the cheese side down if that's what you decided. Bake for 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown and the hot dogs are cooked fully then remove from the oven and allow them to cool down for a minimum of 5 minutes. With either mustard or ketchup, place two small dots in the open gap of the hot dog for eyes and they are all ready to hand out.

 

These halloween DIY treats are a thrilling starter to a chilling dinner party and not only will people be going back for seconds, you’ll also be admired for an incredible creation.

Ghostly Strawberry Snacks

Sometimes halloween treats aren't that friendly in terms of healthiness. However, with this sweet treat, you won't feel too bad about getting another one. With the natural sweetness of the strawberry and the added white chocolate layer on the outside, you’ll be in awe about how delicious these fruity refreshments taste.

Things you’ll need:

  • One pack of strawberries.
  • 8 ounces of white baking chocolate. (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • 1 teaspoon of shortening.

Step 1 - Rinse your strawberries out thoroughly with water then pat dry with paper towels until dry. In a microwave-safe container, place the white chocolate melts and shortening together and heat up for 10-second increments mixing in between each pause cycle until smooth.

Step 2 - Dunk the strawberries into the mixed batter until fully coated. Place them onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper for easy removal. Right after placing the strawberries on the sheet put two miniature chocolate chips for eyes on each one. Microwave the rest of the miniature chocolates in 10-second sessions until fully melted, then with a toothpick paint a mouth into the fruit so the ghost comes to “life”. Put them into a freezer to set for 5 minutes.

Step 3 - Take out of freezer and place onto a platter to serve, refrigerate any leftovers and save for later.

 

Sometimes making food for a party can be overwhelming and expensive but with this recipe, you’ll save time, money, and energy. A DIY Halloween treat is just what you need to get into the fall season with this not so eerie, but excellent goody.
