Bleeding Hearts and Mummy Dogs

Okay, so continue on with yesterday's Halloween post, I also tried out two more recipes. Again soooooo incredibly simple and yet soooooo delicious!! Your kids are going to love these and you will too!!!!

Sorry for only the one picture and of course the pre-baking picture. The foods were so good, I started eating them and then realized that I forgot to take a picture first! Ha!

The first one was for Mummies. They were so easy and so cute. You just take a package of hot dogs and some of the Pillsbury Breadsticks. Unroll the breadsticks and then separate into pairs (two breadsticks together). Roll the breadsticks out so they are really really long and thin. And then wrap the rolled out breadstick around the hot dog. Leave a space at the top of the hot dog for the mummy's head. You really have to roll these out. You will think it is way too long and too thin, but trust me once it is wrapped around the hot dog it will start to unwrap itself. That part is a huge pain. Put these in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and then remove, put mustard on the face for two eyes and that's it! So cute and so good. I used the Nathan's Hot Dogs. They are pricey but OMG!!!! so good! It is really the only hot dog I eat anymore.

Now onto the next one. This is called a Bleeding Heart. It is basically Baked Brie! OMG!!! Baked Brie is one of favorites!!! Soooo good. All you have to do for this is buy an 8oz. round of Brie Cheese or you could buy the large round if you like. Then you take a package of the Pillsbury Croissants and lay that out flat and then separate into two separate squares. Place the Brie Cheese on one of the squares and then pour 3/4 of Cherry Preserves over the top (you can use whatever preserves you want but bleeding makes me think red and that is what the recipe called for too). Then you place the other croissant square over the top and seal along the sides. Brush with a beaten egg and then place this in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes and that's it! I always thought Baked Brie was so extravagant and hard, but boy was I wrong. It is just so simple. But the finished plate is gorgeous!

So, now go out and make them for your little ghosts and goblins! :)
