Smilin’ Jack SandWITCH
OP is our Baby Froggy

2 or 3 ready-made frozen bread-dough rolls
1 beaten egg
* Thaw rolls and press together to form a flat oval “pumpkin” shape. With a knife, cut a shallow, wide V shape in the side of the oval. Rotate the V about a quarter-turn and tuck the point under the “pumpkin” to form the stem.

* Place on a cookie sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cut out 3 large triangles for eyes and a nose, and a large crescent shape for a mouth. Leave some teeth in, if desired. Cut 3 curved lines from top to bottom, almost but not all the way through the dough.

* Brush with egg and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on rack, then slice horizontally. Fill with piping hot barbecue beef and cheese, or your own favorite sandwich makings.

* Makes 1 large or 2 smaller servings.

Chocolate-Covered Bugs

Red-licorice whips
24 ea Soft caramel candies
6 oz Chocolate chips
For Decorations:

Colored sprinkles
Red hots
Sliced almonds
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

Cut licorice into small pieces.

Flatten each caramel into a small oval. Press bits of licorice onto 12 of the 24 flattened caramels for legs.

Top each caramel with a second caramel and press edges to seal.

Put on prepared baking sheet. Put chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High 1 minute. Stir and then microwave on High 1 minute longer.

Remove from oven and stir until melted. Spoon melted chocolate over each candy. Decorate with nuts and candy.

Bats from the Belfry
* 1 fruit roll
* 1 chocolate cake rolls
* Purchased chocolate frosting
* 2 candy corns
* 2 orange candy baking bits
* 1 miniature marshmallow
* Red decorator icing

For the bat, make wings from a fruit roll circle. Have an adult cut the circle in half with scissors, then cut scallops along the curved edge. For the body, spread one side of a chocolate cake roll with chocolate frosting. Place the frosted side on top of the wings. With more frosting, “glue” on candy corn for ears and two orange candy baking bits for eyes. Cut fangs from a miniature marshmallow, and press them in place. Add a grin with red decorator frosting. Makes 1 bat.

Spider cookies

Oreo Cookies 12
licorice laces 3 3 foot strands cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
cinnamon dots 24
red decorating gel 1 1/2 tsps

Insert 3 pieces of the licorice laces into each side of the Oreo cookie.

For the eyes use the red decorating gel to adhere the cinnamon dots to the top of the cookie.

Spider Crackers
For each:
2 round crackers
2 teaspoons smooth peanut butter
8 small pretzel sticks
2 raisins

With the peanut butter, make a cracker sandwich. Insert eight pretzel “legs” into the filling. With a dab of peanut butter, set two raisin “eyes” on top. Makes 1.

Monster Mouth

Slivered almonds

1. Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth.

2. Tip: If you’re not going to serve them right away, baste the apples with orange juice to keep them from browning.

Mozzarella string cheese
Green bell pepper
Cream cheese
1. Wearing plastic gloves or sandwich bags over your hands to keep the cheese as smudge-free as possible, use a paring knife (parents only) to cut each string in half and then carve a shallow area for a fingernail just below the rounded end of each half.

2. Mark the joint right below the nail as well as the knuckle joint by carving out tiny horizontal wedges of cheese, as pictured.

3. For the fingernails, slice a green bell pepper into 3/8-inch-wide strips. Set the strips skin side down on your work surface and trim the pulp so that it’s about half as thick. Then cut the strips into ragged-topped nail shapes and stick them in place at the ends of the fingers with dabs of cream cheese.

Edible Eyeballs
Cream cheese
Pitted black olives
1. Simply slice carrots into 1-inch-thick chunks, top each with a blob of cream cheese and one half of a pitted black olive, and serve.

Mix peanut butter with powdered sugar, roll into balls and dip in melted white chocolate.
While the chocolate is still wet put an m&m on it, let it dry and it looks like an eyeball.
