Halloween Party

We did not have a huge Halloween party. Just a few friends over for appetizers

I made the Jalapeno popper dip again and even though we had about 9 people it still was gone at the end of the night. People cant stop eating it!

We made "eyeball" meatballs
We used my meatball recipe found in the appetizer section
Cut up string cheese into bite sized pieces and put one piece on top of the uncooked meatball.
Then we placed a canned black olive slice on top of that
Bake and serve on top of marinara sauce
We cut some rolls into thirds so people could make mini meatball sandwiches with their eyes :)

We also made "mummy" dogs but I did not draw on faces with mustard but you can absolutely do that.
We used all beef hot dogs and crescent rolls
Take the cresent rolls and keep two of them together creating a square. Then slice the square into strips, about 8 strips. Roll the strips into ropes and wind them around your hot dog. I used about two strips per hot dog.
Bake in the oven at 375 until the rolls are browning. They will puff up a bit

I bought a Halloween themed mold at Michaels this year. It was time consuming but not hard to make these. I melted white chocolate chips (with a lot of veg oil to make it runny) to fill in the skulls, popped it in the freezer to harden, and then I used chocolate bark to fill in the rest. I pressed an oreo into the chocolate bark while it was still runny and then put them in the freezer to harden. They popped out of the mold pretty easily.

Other food at the party included bruschetta that a friend brought over and a dirt graveyard cake that another friend brought over. We also lit the grill on the porch and roasted s'mores. A small party but we had lots of food and I was full by the end of it!
