Christmas Food Fun

Frosty is not just for Christmas he can add fun to any winter time breakfast. Two pancakes one slightly larger than the other, let cool slightly and sprinkle with powdered sugar, mini choc chip eyes and mouth, and mini m&m buttons and nose. And of course a bacon scarf!
Simple and fun powdered sugar donuts, I used my black icing tube and made the mouth and eyes and orange candy for the nose. 
A individual cheese pizza and a small cheese pizza, carrot nose black olive eyes, mouth and buttons, any kind of herb or spinach scarf.
This wreath is a little hard to get shaped but yummy and pretty on a table. I used crescent rolls and made my wreath shape while it was just out of the oven hot I manipulated it into a more round wreath shape. I then let it cool topped with veggie cream cheese, chopped broccoli, grape tomatoes and a bell pepper wreath bow. 

Thanksgiving Food Fun

Turkeys, turkeys, turkeys...gotta have more than just the main one with stuffing. Here I did a cheese ball you can but a cheese ball already made or use your favorite recipe. I added sliced almonds for feathers, pretzel sticks for feet and for feathers I cut shiska bob sticks in half and used cheese cubes, tomatoes and green olives. A ritz cracker head and red bell pepper round out the head. The cookie recipe is one of many that I found online. I used a stiped cookie, an almond candy and candy corn stuck together with choc frosting. 
The bread bowl turkey. I hollowed out the bread bowl to fit my bowl down inside, the side wings are the top I cut out of the the bowl, the head a roll, raisin eyes, bell pepper waddle. The back feathers are carrots, zuchinni squash and yellow squash. 
The cornicopia is one one of my very favorite things to make. Make a cornicopia shape with aluminum foil, spray it down with cooking spray wrap with yummy breadsticks and bake in the oven, when cool remove the foil and add veggies of your choice.
Dip oreos in orange melting choc green icing and pretzels for the top
A upside down striped cookie, reese peanut butter cups and yellow icing and pilgrim hats are gobbled down.

Halloween Food Part 2

I think a brain is required for spooky Halloween food! This does take a little time and patience but it is easier than you think! I bought the small watermelons they come two in a pack this time of year at sams. I lightly peeled just taking the dark green off. Once I had it peeled I stared making deeper incisions I did the line down the middle first and then just creatively added maze like shapes on each side. 
Tombstone graveyard. Use your favorite dip recipe. For trees, tombstones, cats simply cut the shapes out of different tortillas and bake in the oven. Do not insert into your dip until right before serving otherwise they get soggy and you get a droopy halloween graveyard.
Mummy pizzas just great for a quick lunch or snack for the kids. I used the bagel bites and added a little more mozerella cheese with black olive eyes.
I think of these as an oldie but goodie. They have been around for ever but I still love them, pudding, oeros, milano cookies and pumpkin candies...easy breezy creepy dessert. 
I found printable labels here to dress up soda or juice a fun eye catching addition.

Adding fun to your Halloween with food! PART 1

I adore these deviled eggs. Super creepy looking and so easy! Make your deviled eggs as you normally wood. Then take a can of black olive rinse your olives cut in half, place the half in the middle of your egg. Then cut the remaining half black olives into spider legs.
 Healthy Halloween Snack cut your bananas in half (do the bananas right before serving so they dont turn brown) mini choc chip eyes and reg choc chip inserted pointy side in and walla ghosts! My kids love those little cutie oranges. To make them more festive simply peel them and place them on a tray using a small celery stalk or green candy for the stem.
This cake looks impressive but it is really easy! Simply bake your rectangle cake and icing green. You are going to use rolos for Franks neck, half oreos topped with a hershey kiss for eyes and then just add details with your black icing.

Hot dog mummies! Wrap your hot dog with some yummy breadsticks from a can, bake in the oven till golden, let cool before adding mustard eyes.
