Pizza Mummies


English muffins

  • Pizza sauce
  • Black olives
  • Scallions
  • Red or green pepper
  • Cheese sticks or slices

  1. Heat the oven to 350ยบ F. For
     each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).

  2. Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils.

  3. Lay strips of cheese (we used a pulled-apart cheese stick) across the muffin for the mummy?s wrappings.

  4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.

Jack Skellington Cupcakes


  • Batch of chocolate cupcakes
  • White buttercream frosting
  • 2 toothpicks
  • Tube of black decorator's icing
  1. Frost the cupcakes.
  2. For each cupcake, use the tip of a toothpick to lightly etch the outline of two large Jack Skellington eyes in the frosting.
  3. Slowly pipe black decorator's icing onto the etched lines and then fill in the inner circles. Use another toothpick to spread and smooth the icing.
  4. Pipe on two short lines for a nose. Next, pipe a long line across the bottom of the cupcake for the mouth. For the finishing spooky touch, randomly top the mouth with a bunch of short icing barbs.

Brownie Dessert


1 pkg of brownies baked and cooled so you can touch them
1 large pkg of instant chocolate pudding mixed and ready to go
1 tub of cool whip (i believe its 12 oz)
candy crushed up (any kind works-toffee candy is yummy)

1. in a bowl/dish crumble 1/2 of the brownies in the bottom-kind of place evenly throughout the bottom so it's flat :)
2. scoop 1/2 of the chocolate pudding on top of the brownies and smooth it out so it's flat
3. sprinkle about 1/3 of the crushed candy on top of the pudding
4. spread 1/2 of the cool whip on top of the candy-spread evenly
5. crumble the remaining 1/2 of the brownies on top of the cool whip-place evenly again. If you have to you can kind of push them down if you're running out of room in the bowl.
6. scoop the remaining 1/2 of the chocolate pudding on top of the brownies and spread evenly.
7. sprinkle about 1/2 of the remaining candy on top of the chocolate pudding
8. spread the remaining 1/2 of the cool whip on top of the candy-spread evenly
9. sprinkle the remaining candy on top of the cool whip to make it look pretty! and you're done!

cover it with tin foil and let it cool in the fridge for 3 hours. once you've eaten some always put it back in the fridge-don't let it sit out on the counter for too long-everything will begin to melt! to serve it:
