What to Eat Before You Trick-or-Treat

What to you eat before you trick-or-treat

I’m not sure about your kids, but I know mine get so excited about trick-or-treating that it’s almost impossible to get them eat dinner.  Every year I make something fun, spooky and easy to eat! 

Mummy Dogs

Boo Bagels

These happen to be Ellie’s favorite!  Make your trick-or-treater’s favorite bagel sandwich simply put vampire teeth in the center and chocolate eyeballs. BOO!

Mini Brain Subs


Grab a box of Pepperidge Farm Pastry Dough and a bag of mini frozen meatballs. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the dough into equal squares and place each square in a small cupcake pan.  Place a meatball in each cup.  Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and add your favorite pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese.  Bake for 5 to 10 more minutes. 

Turkey and Macaroni Chili

Who doesn’t love a bowl of chili?  Warm up their insides and fill their bellies at the same time.  Ooph’s Turkey and Macaroni Chili recipe is here.
