Creepy Mummy Dogs Recipe
You'll find recipes for these cute-and-spooky mummy dogs all over the web. But --in our humble opinion-- this one takes Halloween recipes fun to a whole new
level. Why? Because as well as cute and tasty, these mummy dogs are super easy to make, as they use breadstick dough instead of the biscuit dough called
for in most recipes. So your dough will already be perfectly suited to making mummy wrappings. This will be one of the kids' favorite Halloween treat recipes, without a doubt.
Serve these on a cute
festive Halloween tray
with ketchup "blood" dipping sauce and green food-colored mustard "bile" dipping sauce, and listen to the oohs and ahs of appreciation. They're really cute and fun to eat.
1 (11 oz) can refrigerated breadstick dough
2 slices cheddar cheese, quartered (optional)
8 hot dogs
black mustard seeds
Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. If desired, place one cheddar cheese slice on your hot dog. Then wrap each dog to look like a mummy, leaving a open area for the eyes.
3. Cut two tiny slits in the exposed hot dog and insert two black mustard seeds for eyes. If you'd like to give your mummies entire faces, you can cut a little slit for
a mouth, which will gape open a bit during cooking.
4. Place mummy dogs on an ungreased baking sheet and bake around 15 minutes, until golden.
5. Serve with plenty of ketchup and mustard and listen to the kids rave about having such Halloween recipes fun.
Frankenstein Finger Dip
You'll have a lot of Halloween recipes fun with this one. It's cute, scary, and easy to make. Along with the instructions for assembling the "fingers" (or you could just use
creepy plastic fingers)
you'll find two of our favorite party dip recipes.
Both of the dip recipes below are finger-licking good... so be careful, or you just might crunch into the wrong thing by mistake. Ouch.
1 prepared dip recipe (see below)
4 long carrots
1 medium-length carrot
5 sliced almonds
Instructions: 1. Spoon dip into a serving bowl.
2. If you're lazy, simply buy some plastic fingers and serve raw veggies on the side. Or prepare carrot fingers like this: Wash and peel your five carrots. The four long carrots will be fingers, the medium carrot a thumb.
3. Carefully trim a flat, shallow area at the "fingertip" of each carrot. This will be for the almond fingernails.
4. Dab a touch of cream cheese onto the "nail bed" you've created. Top with an almond fingernail.
5. Stick carrot in dip, fingernails up, in the shape of a reaching hand.
6. Serve on tray surrounded with veggies and crackers.
BLT (But Hold the "L") Dip
This dip is so good. Just impossible to resist. It's great if you want to have some Halloween recipes fun, or just make a great dip for any old party. One of
the only dips I know of that will have the men just as exited about veggie dip as the women are. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.

1/2 C. good quality mayonnaise
4 oz. cream cheese, softened

4. Stir in tomatoes.
5. Serve chilled.
Caramelized Onion Dip
This recipe, based on one by the Barefoot Contessa, makes just about the best onion dip you've ever tried. One bite and you'll agree-- that's a promise. Hellman's
mayo tastes best with this, but you can use whatever you like. Makes about 4 cups.
4 large onions, sliced (about 6 cups)

1/3 C. olive oil
8 oz. cream cheese, softened

4. Set aside to cool.
5. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese sour cream, and mayo in a medium mixing bowl. Mix with an electric mixer until fluffy.
6. Stir in the cooled onions.
7. Serve dip at room temperature.
Halloween Recipes Fun: Creepy Mummy Pizzas
This is one of the best Halloween treat recipes to make with the kids. It's just too easy! Let each kid assemble and devour his or her own mummy.
Or assemble them ahead of time for a Halloween party and cook right before serving. This cute but creepy Halloween recipe is a fun addition to your Halloween
In the instructions below, we have you toast the top of the muffins before adding toppings to keep them from getting soggy. Don't feel like doing the extra step?
They turn out great if you don't toast the tops, too. These little pizzas are also great with sliced pepperoni. Just add the pepperoni before the cheese so you don't cover up
your mummy's bandages.

1 pkg. (6 count) English muffins (12 halves)
3/4 C. prepared pizza sauce
12 slices mozzarella cheese
24 black olive slices
Green bell pepper, chopped into 1/4" pieces
Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven's broiler
2. Split each English muffin and broil (tops only) until crisp and golden.
3. Remove muffins from oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
4. Cut your mozzarella cheese slices into muffin-sized mummy bandages.
5. Spread about a tablespoon of pizza sauce on each muffin half.
6. Top with cheese "bandages."
7. Place two black olive slices on each pizza for eyes. Give each eye a piece of green pepper for a pupil.
8. Bake about 10 minutes, until muffin is crisp and cheese is melted.
Note: You can also do this with homemade or store-bought pizza dough. Simply cut into small rounds with a drinking glass or a biscuit cutter, and prepare
as directed here (no toasting, of course). Raw dough may need an extra couple of minutes in the oven.
(AKA: Black Bean Soup)
Talk about having some Halloween recipes fun.... this recipe for black bean soup is just too funny. Spicy and full of flavor, it tastes incredible. But add a few
gory looking plastic fingers
and maybe some different plastic body parts and it looks absolutely
disgusting-- and very disturbing. This is one of the most creepy Halloween recipes you could put on your buffet table. Plus, the rich soup makes a nice change from all of the snacks and
Halloween finger foods you'd normally serve.
Serve Part-from-the-Morgue Soup with tortilla chips (call them "Deep Fried Skin Slivers" for some really gross Halloween recipes fun), sour cream (I dye mine green!), and cornbread. Serves 12-15.
This black bean soup also works great if you want to make a nice tasty batch of Maggot Stew for Halloween!
Various plastic novelty body parts, washed and dried
8 cans of black beans, drained
3/4 lbs. bacon, chopped
1 head of garlic, peeled and minced
1 C. chopped celery
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
1 1/2 C. diced yellow onion
2 jalapeños, seeded and minced (use gloves!)
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tbsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. dried oregano
1-2 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 C. dark beer
5-8 C. beef broth (or chicken)
Kosher salt, to taste
Instructions 1. In a large soup pot, cook bacon until browned and crisp.
2. To bacon and drippings, add your garlic, celery, carrots, onions, jalapeño, and bay leaf.
3. Cook over medium heat until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.
4. Stir in cumin, chili powder, oregano, cayenne, and pepper. Cook about 1 minute.
5. Add beans, beer, and the minimum amount of broth. Add salt to taste.
6. Cook uncovered 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding more broth as needed to reach your desired consistency. Taste and adjust spices halfway through cook-time, if
7. Serve this creepy Halloween recipe in its cooking pot, adding bones, plastic body parts, etc., after soup has cooled slightly.
Note: Don't use plastic parts that will easily melt! Here, we used novelty teeth for a Halloween costume. The finger pictured is a witch's finger cookie, but these
nasty-looking severed fingers look really, really good. Or make the carrot fingers described above for an all-natural soup.
