Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Looking for some fun new Halloween party treats? How about a little something sweet and a little something salty…

Halloween Web Crawlers

2 cups chocolate chips
2 tsp. corn oil
60 mini marshmallows
5 thin black licorice whips
20 tiny red hot candies

Makes 10 spiders

Take 6 mini marshmallows and squish them into a round ball. Place on a sheet of wax paper. Repeat until you’ve made a total of 10 balls.

Cut the licorice into 2-inch-long strips; you will end up with 80 strips.

Cut licorice into 80 2-inch-long strips.

Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the chips are melted. Add oil to the melted chocolate chips and mix well.

Dip each ball into the melted chocolate.

Stick 8 licorice legs into the chocolate body – 4 on each side.

Add 2 red dot candies as eyes on each spider.

Salty Bones

One 11oz tube of refrigerated breadstick dough
Coarse salt

Makes 12 bones

Open the tube of refrigerated breadstick dough and separate it into its rectangular pieces.

Stretch each rectangle to lengthen it a little. Use a knife to cut a slit 1 ½ inches in length in the center of each end of the rectangle.

Roll each of the four flaps you have created into knobs as to look like the ends of a bone.

Place each bone on an ungreased baking sheet, sprinkling a small amount of coarse salt on each one.

Bake the bones at the temperature indicated on the dough tube until they are light golden brown, about 12 minutes.
