Unroll the dough, separate the triangles, and cut them into thin strips. Wrap your hotdogs with the strips just like a mummy. Bake on an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet according to the package directions. Cool and dot with mustard eyes for the finished look!

These Halloween Veggie Skeletons may not be made with celery ribs, but they’ve got plenty of other “bones”!

Turn your favorite frozen banana treats into cute ghosts with this simple recipe. Halve your bananas and place on skewers. Freeze for 2-3 hours. Just before taking them out of the freezer, melt your favorite chocolate bars or chips in a double boiler with a tablespoon of coconut oil or vegetable shortening. Dip the bananas and roll in coconut flakes or white sprinkles. Dot with raisins or chocolate chips for eyes and voila! Your boo-nanas are complete.
Peanut Butter Candy Apples
These handy dandy candy apples may look traditional, but they’re made with a peanut butter coating, rather than caramel. Cook peanut butter with condensed milk and vanilla for a creamy shell that you can dip in your favorite festive toppings. Get the recipe from National Co+op Grocers here.
