Witches Fingers and Toes! YUMMY!

Halloween is creeping in on us....are you ready? I have tons of great ideas for Halloween fun including recipes, craft ideas and last minute decorating on my website but here is a little taste:
Witches Fingers and Toes1 Can Pillsbury Bread Sticks
Whole Almonds
Red Food Coloring
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Little Sausages
Melted Butter

Paint the end of each almond piece with a little water and red food coloring, lay to dry. Separate each bread stick and lay flat on a cookie sheet. Push together to create "knuckles" in three places on each "finger." Put the almond on the end of each piece to create the fingernails. Brush each piece with melted butter and bake as directed.
Unroll the crescent rolls. Cut each section into 2 pieces. Starting at the corner of each piece, put a sausage on the dough and roll up, leaving a little piece sticking out for the toes. Bake as directed. Serve with a basic marinara sauce and label it "Blood Clot sauce!"


I used two black foam boards (from Hobby Lobby) tapes together and a stencil I printed off the Internet (try ww.marthastewart.com). I simply enlarged the stencil and marked off where to cut with a piece of chalk. I then used fishing line and thumb tacks to hang it in the front window.

Halloween Treats!

I LOVE Halloween. That's no secret - what is a secret is another one of my new obsessions: http://www.bakerella.com/ I've been making her Oreo Balls for awhile but she just keeps getting more and more great ideas. Check out what she does with her cake balls for Halloween: http://www.bakerella.com/trick-or-treats/

On my own website, I've added the recipe I use and a few photos of my own oreo balls and chocolate molds for Halloween.
You can buy the supplies and molds at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Ebay has a HUGE selection of molds for about the same price (that's where I get most of mine). Don't forget to get the bags and twist ties too! Great for school Fall festivals and to give your Trick-or-Treater's! Make them ahead of time - they keep for months! Sometimes I even add a little tag to them (found in the card making section at Hobby Lobby) to personalize them. They are EASY AS PIE! Check out the "How-to" slide show on my website:
