This is one creepy Halloween themed lunch! Not for the faint of heart! ;-)
Scary Halloween EasyLunchboxes lunch...
In the big section:
- mummified hot dog
- vat of blood sauce (ew!) (don't worry, it's just ketchup!)
- fruit leather bats
- "pumpkin slices" (carrot coins)
- extra mummy bandages (shredded string cheese!)
- zombie jaws (apple slices & almond slivers)
Close-up of the creepiness:
I saw the mummy hotdogs in a Halloween idea book I picked up a couple months ago, I've since seen the idea replicated on a lot of sites and in some other magazines lately. It's pretty much the same idea as a "pig in a blanket", but using breadstick dough instead of crescent dough and you wrap the hotdog up like a mummy. Bake according to breadstick baking directions. :) I sprinkled garlic powder and garlic salt on my breadstick dough for added flavor and to ward off any vampires that may roam too close.
The zombie jaws are so creepy! And so easy to make. Just arrange apple slices and push in almond slivers. A friendly peep on the Another Lunch Facebook Page mentioned seeing this idea in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog recently, and then I started noticing them in some other magazines too!
I never noticed "apple smiles" (as I've seen them called before) made with almond slivers before, just with marshmallows (glued on with peanut butter - though marshmallow fluff would be a good glue to use in order to avoid nuts)... but the almond slivers definitely look very monsterish!
A quick note about EasyLunchboxes, they will be back in stock and shipping SOON, but any orders placed while they are still on backorder will get a free cooler bag! Just sayin'....
