Making Halloween Party Food is a fun way to get creative in the kitchen. My Prosciutto Ham Head (see on my blog) & Pillsbury Spooky Finger Breadsticks are the fun type of party food that makes a celebration special. I love to have parties and when I do, I like to add a little bit of “Sugar” to make it memorable. My sister Michele is the artist in the family so she always has fun ideas for creative foods. When you get me, my mom and my sister in the kitchen, we are bound to whip up something great.
Pillsbury Spooky Finger Breadsticks
1 Package Pillsbury Crescent Breadsticks
Small bag of Sliced Almonds
1 Egg white
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Unroll dough and separate the bread strips. Cut each stick in thirds about finger-size. Brush a small amount of egg white on the dough and press a single sliced almond into the tip, so that it looks like a fingernail.
Bake for 14-15 minutes or until golden brown.
See my “Cook’s Notes” below for a tip on how to make a Smoking Halloween Punch.
Prosciutto Ham Meat Head
1 Plastic skull (can be found at most party stores or craft stores)
1 pound of prosciutto or deli ham, sliced thin
Cream cheese (the whipped kind) if needed
1 small container of small Mozzarella cheese balls
1 small can on black olives sliced
Small red cake icing tube
Wrap the skull with foil being sure to cover it completely. It may take a few overlapping layers of foil to get it all covered. You don’t want the food to be resting on the plastic skull in case anyone wants to eat the meat. Layer the ham over the skull to cover it completely. If you are having trouble getting it to stick simply smear on a little cream cheese to act as a glue to hold the meat to the head. Add a little cream cheese to the eye sockets and place the mozzarella balls in the sockets for eyes. If you need to you can secure it with a toothpick. Use red icing for veins in eyes. You can attach the olive slices to the remainder of the cheese balls with toothpicks so they look like eyeballs. Serve them around the head. Chill in fridge until ready to serve
Smoking Halloween Punch
I like to make a smoking punch for Halloween. Just use your favorite punch in a punch bowl and add a small block of dry ice. Be sure that no one touches the ice with their fingers or adds it to their cup.
Dry ice is safe to drink in the punch. It will dissolve and keep the punch cold.
