Firstly, mini spider pizzas are a creative way to make a pizza look spooky. This can be made using any pizza crust, tomato sauce, cheese, and olives. The olives are arranged so that there is half of one as the body and another as the head and cut-up pieces for the legs. Another fun food idea is mummy hot dogs. These are just like pigs in the blanket however the outside is spread out to look like mummy wrap and there is mustard for the eyes. A sweet and healthy Halloween food is apple monster bites. These are made up of sliced apples, strawberries as tongues, and sunflower seeds as teeth. Add some candy eyeballs for a better scare. A nice simple dessert is candy corn bark. This is made of graham crackers coated with yellow, orange, and white candy melts and Reeces Pieces on top.
