Yummy mummy! Make these hotdog and cookie Halloween treats tonight
Sure, you could stick with your usual crock pot, Chinese takeout, frozen pizza dinner routine this week, or you could be the best mummy ever and whip up a mummy-themed Halloween meal your kids will shriek over!
We’re voting for the latter, aren’t you?
Here are two scary-simple—and super fun—recipes from Pillsbury (find printable coupons here) that we’re, uh, dying to surprise our little goblins with. Enjoy!
- 1 can (8-oz.) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8-oz) Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheet
- 2 1/2 slices American cheese, quartered (2.5-oz)
- 10 large hot dogs
- Cooking spray
- Mustard or ketchup, if desired
Heat oven to 375°F.
If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles.
With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese slices into quarters (1/2 slice cheese, cut in half).
Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like “bandages,” stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate “bandages” so hot dog shows through for “face.” On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on “face.”
- 1 package Pillsbury Ready To Bake! refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
- 1 container (1-lb) vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting
- Neon orange and green food colors
- Candy eyes
- Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on package. Cool completely.
- Separate frosting into 2 small bowls; add food colors to make desired neon orange and neon green colors.
- Spoon colored frostings into decorating bags fitted with flat basket weave tip #45. Squeeze bag to pipe frosting in crisscross pattern over cookies to look like mummy bandages. Attach candy eyes. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes.
- Be creative with any color you choose to decorate your mummies. If you don’t have food color on hand, use vanilla or chocolate frosting. Don’t have candy eyes? Use miniature candy-coated chocolate candies instead.
- Don’t have decorating tips or bags at home? Instead, spoon frosting into a resealable food-storage plastic bag, and cut about 1/4 inch off corner of bag to pipe mummy bandages onto the cookies.
