When I was planning the menu I knew that it would not be complete without Mummified Dogs dipped in blood. I mean they are a necessity right? Maybe not but they are super simple and give the desired affect. I just took a package of hot dogs and a can of Pillsbury pizza dough. I cut the dough in long strips using a pizza cutter and started wrapping.
I then made Spider Eggs. They are deviled eggs with olives cut to look like spiders. I boil my eggs for 10 minutes and then remove from heat for another 5 minutes with a lid on. Note: When making deviled eggs I always try to use eggs that I have had for a little while, the more fresh the eggs are the harder they are to peel once boiled. I then made my deviled eggs...
To assemble them I put one half of the olive in the middle of the egg yolk mixture and four strips on each side to make a spider like this.
The wormy apples were super duper easy. I had planned on putting a whole through each apple slice and threading a gummy worm through the hole but I ran out of time. (see picture above)
The witches fingers were way too fun. String Cheese, green pepper and cream cheese are all you will need. First I took each piece of string cheese and carved knuckle marks for the fingers and then I carved an area for the fingernail to go, it should look like this.
To stick the fingernail to the finger I use a small amount of cream cheese and then the witches finger is finished. I made these the night before the party so that they were all ready.
It was a great time, with great parents and even greater kids. They were so cute all dressed up and ready to get on the trick or treat trail. Sweet times-J
