Spooky Halloween Juice Sparklers

Spooky Halloween Juice Sparklers

today the boys and i had some fun in the kitchen and came up with a fun Halloween afternoon snack that is also great for Halloween parties or anytime you want to have a spooky treat. Juicy Juice sent over some of their 100% juices. so we decided it would be fun to come up with a Halloween juice recipe. and we sure did. Spooky Halloween Juice Sparklers! the boys helped me come up with the Spooky Eyeball Fruit Kabobs that top off the Juicy Juice Sparklers that we made using a couple of Juicy Juice’s 16 flavors. they turned out super awesome, much better than expected. so i really want to share how you make them.

plus, the great thing about this recipe is that it is made with Juicy Juice. with all the treats and candy kids get during the Halloween season, the last thing you want to give them is a soft drink or punch. Juicy Juice contains no high fructose corn syrup, cane sugar or artificial sweeteners. a recent “Truth in Juice” nationwide survey conducted by Juicy Juice revealed confusion in the juice aisle, so Juicy Juice has created a tool on their website to help moms and dads read labels on their juices to really understand what they’re giving their kids.

Juicy Juice Recipe

now, how to make your own Spooky Juice Sparklers. this is actually a snack and a beverage in one. all you need is: 2 of your favorite flavors of Juicy Juice, seltzer water, melon balls, grapes, blueberries, gummy worms and wooden bamboo skewers.Juice Sparklers Ingredients

Mummy Hotdogs for Halloween Dinner

Mummy Hotdogs for Halloween Dinnerif you are looking for a quick and easy Halloween dinner idea, these Mummy Hotdogs are just that. i made these for my Halloween party, and the boys (and everyone else) really enjoyed them. all you need to make them are hotdogs (i used organic turkey dogs) and then breadstick or pizza dough. the dough that pops out of a can will work just fine. also, if you can get some sticks, it will make these Mummy Hotdogs a little easier to make, and will also give the kiddies something to hold them with. (i found that the caramel apple sticks i found at my local craft store worked perfectly).

first, you will want to insert the sticks into the hotdogs. then take a piece of breadstick dough, and hold it at the bottom of the hotdog where you inserted the stick. now start twisting it around the hotdog, stretching as you go. when you get near the top, skip an area for the face, and stretch the rest of the dough over the top to cover the mommy’s head.Mummy Hotdogs for Halloween Dinner
when you have wrapped up all your hotdogs in the dough, place them into a preheated 350º oven and bake until the dough is golden brown. approximately 10-15 minutes. once they are cooked, use a toothpick to add mustard eyes to complete your mummy look. serve them with dipping sauces like ketchup, mustard or nacho cheese. they will be perfect to eat for family dinners or at a Halloween party.

aren’t these just the cutest little Mummy Hotdogs.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
