I am going to be honest with you. Of the four of us on this blog, I am not the crafty one. I mean, how many actual craft things have I made and posted here? I'm pretty sure the count is zero. I save all my creativity for food. I love food. I love making food and I love serving it to other people and having them enjoy it.
I also love hosting parties. I love making great food for those parties. So I volunteered this week to come up with some great Halloween party appetizers that you could make for your Halloween Party this year!
I also love my husband. He supports me in this blogging endeavor and I love bouncing ideas off of him because he is very creative and comes up with great stuff. So when I asked him what kind of appetizers he would want at a Halloween party he said, "bat" wings. He loves wings, I'd venture to say they're his favorite party appetizer. He also suggested our Baked Pumpkin Pie Brie. We have made another variation of the brie at Christmas time with Raspberry sauce, I've also seen cranberry sauce. Well, my wonderful PH suggested I make some kind of pumpkin pie filling to go with the brie. So, I discussed it with him and came up with something so tasty! Finally, I had an idea for breadsticks that look like mummies. Madalynn suggested I do pigs in a blanket. Which I did. So, here are your four Halloween Appetizers, complete with a shopping list at the end of this post! Get ready for your Halloween party! PH loved everything we made and said, "we should throw a party this is all so good!"
1. Mummified Smokies:
Okay, these are so easy and fun! Like I said before, I am not crafty. What I liked about this one was to make the dough look more like a mummy wrapping you have to be a little messy. It is not about perfection at all! Cut your crescent roll dough into very thin strips and then wrap a strip very messily around a Lit'l Smokie. One package of crescent rolls got me 24 mummies. PH dipped his in ketchup. I ate mine plain. You can dip them in the brie, or use whatever other kind of sauce you'd like! they're easy and versatile and fun!
1. Pumpkin Pie Baked Brie: This one was fun because I was able to be creative with making my own pumpkin pie filling. Normally for a pumpkin pie I use evaporated milk. This time around I decided to use sweetened condensed milk, and I nixed the eggs. This made the consistency a little thicker and creamier so it wouldn't all come running out of the pastry as it baked. The best part? There was extra filling and crescent roll dough leftover, so I used both to make mini pumpkin pies! I love a two for one!
3. Mini Pumpkin Pies: This one is so easy and it helps you use some leftovers! I just ripped off the leftover crescent dough to put in the bottom of my mini muffin tin and then I poured some of the pumpkin pie filling on top. Don't worry if you run out of crescent roll dough. Some of these have no crust and they still tasted awesome!
4. Vampire Bat Wings: The wings are the easiest but take the longest because you have to bake the chicken for an hour. However, once they're baked you just toss them in the sauce and they're done! When PH said bat wings I was wondering what kind of sauce we should use. Initially PH suggested Szechwan sauce, but then we saw some General Tso's sauce and he suggested that instead. It has a light spice, but not too spicey. It wasn't for me anyway and I am not too into spicey food. It was just the perfect amount of kick. Since the sauce is red we went with the name Vampire Bat Wings. This is for a Halloween party after all!
So, those are your four easy, tasty, and fun Halloween appetizer recipes! There is a cheat sheet with directions as well as a shopping list attached, all for your convenience! Happy partying!
