Halloween Food Ideas

My favorite thing about holidays is creating themed food for the kids. It makes the upcoming holidays that much more fun! Halloween is probably the best holiday to create treats for. I mean who wouldn’t want a spooky Halloween meal filled with mummy dogs, ghost bananas, and monster eyes?

Easy Halloween Food Ideas

I’ve been making mummy dogs since my oldest was little, it’s become tradition that we have them every year. This was the first time my younger two had them and let’s just say there were in complete in awe. My daughter, who’s three, thinks food that look like characters or things are the best thing ever.

Hot Dog Mummies

It was raining here on Monday and we didn’t have much going on, making a Halloween lunch was a fun way to get the kids excited that day.

Before I get to the mummy hot dog recipe I have to share this picture with you. On our way to the grocery store we picked up a pumpkin spice latte and I told my husband that all we needed now is for the leaves to finally start changing colors for it to feel like Fall. As soon as I stepped out of the car at Save Mart this pretty little leaf fell right by my feet. It had started to ever so slightly turn yellow.

Fall Boots and Leaves

It’s little moments like this that bring a smile to my face. Whether it’s taking a step back to enjoy Fall’s beauty or watching my kids get excited about mummy dogs, I know it’s more time like this that I need to focus on in my life. :)

Mummy Hot Dog Recipe:

To make the mummy dogs you will need crescent rolls, hot dogs, and mustard for the eyes. Begin by cutting a crescent roll in half then pull on it gently to make it longer. Wrap the crescent roll around the hot dog then bake for 13-15 minutes in a 375 degree preheated oven. Add small dots of mustard for the eyes.

Mummy Dogs

The banana ghosts were inspired by Family Fun. To make them I cut bananas in half, inserted a paper straw, dipped them in white chocolate, then added edible eyes and a raisin for the mouth.

They may have just made it to our yearly traditions list, I can’t get over how cute they are!

The broccoli monster eyes are simply circles of cheese and a raisin on top.
