I am often sent some fun challenges, and this last one was with Pillsbury for Halloween Food Ideas. We were given a specific recipe and were given full creative freedom to come up with “OUR TAKE” on said recipe. As long as it was Halloween based, we were good!
It’s times like this, my son walks around muttering “I love your blog” as he samples the goods. That kid can down a full tube of baked crescent rolls in 10 minutes.
Halloween Food Ideas
The original idea was for Garlic Bites, so I racked my brain on what would be different……….gooey, oozing…… it didn’t take long to think of cherry pie filling. And it didn’t take long for these to disappear.
Here are the garlic bites……..I made those too! All you do is use the crescent roll dough and fold it around whatever ingredient you’d like.
Witches Fingers and Bread Bones
I’ve seen different versions of these online and I’ve always wanted to be the cool mom that makes them……..so I did. They were so darn easy.
Meaty Monster Toes
Who doesn’t love lil’ Smokies wrapped in Pillsbury dough? I added a little green food coloring to make it look like Shrek or some other smelly monster. Not that Shrek was a monster……not that there’s anything wrong with that.
The original were Mummy Cookies and I made them as well…….so easy. But I was stumped on what else, so they suggested tombstones. They clearly have more confidence in my abilities or I really have them snowed in my abilities. I’m sure they understand now that I am NOT a cookie decorator.
But I did feel like a genius when I thought to use a bell shaped cookie cutter, trimming off the parts not needed……then I felt no where near genius when they lost a lot of their shape while baking and I could have just cut the shape with a butter knife.
No laughing…… this is the best cookie decorating I’ve ever done. The mummies were much easier.
See my fun and simple Halloween Wreath I made! You’ll want one too!
