A great treat for a Halloween potluck.

Total Time: 40 Minutes

Ad

Ingredients:

  • 1 tube crescent roll dough
  • 4 Tbsp spicy mustard
  • 1/4 lb salami
  • 1/4 lb thin sliced deli ham
  • 1/2 lb shredded Monteray jack cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • food coloring
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 green olives with pimento
  • 1 red bell pepper (for tongue)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Dust surface with flour. Unroll crescent roll (do not seperate). Dust top generously with flour as dough is sticky. Pinch seams together and roll out lengthwise.
  3. Ad
  4. Brush with spicy brown mustard. Leave an inch of dough on all sides.
  5. Layer salami and ham in one row down the length of the dough leaving one inch of space on either end. Top with cheese.
  6. Fold one side of the dough over the center lengthwise. Follow with the other side of the dough. Pinch edges to seal. Round and shape - taper one end to make the tail, round the other to look like a head, and wave the body to make it snakey.
  7. Brush with beaten egg.
  8. Paint with food coloring. I made black stripes.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Make the snake's face using olives for the eyes, cloves for the nose holes, and a strip of red pepper for the tongue (I forked the end)

These favors are always a hit with children and adults too. They get a kick out of receiving the favor because of the "novelty" of the use of the glove.

Supplies:

Directions:

Open glove and put a piece of corn candy into the tip of each finger. These are the "fingernails". Fill the gloves with cooked and cooled popcorn. Tie with colorful yarn and put spider ring on one finger.

You can buy a package of 100 of these gloves at the Dollar Tree. I apologize for not having the candy corn and spider ring on the one I did hurriedly today to give you the idea of the finished product. The most difficult part is getting the popcorn down into the finger parts, but well worth the reaction of those who receive them!

Please, Please, Please, be sure to make sure the gloves do not contain any powders or chemicals that most "rubber" gloves have. Many plastics, even from the grocery store, are NOT food safe. For example, the clear produce bags are not safe if turned inside out. The outside of the bag has stuff on it that is toxic. Just be safe.

Editor's Note: She recommends plastic food handling gloves which should be safe to use on food. Using other types of gloves would not be recommended.

If you can't find them, you could easily create your own with some plain ceramic cups and ceramic paint. We crafters do things like this all the time.

A few years ago I made a fun dessert for my husband's Halloween party at his work. It was called "Roadkill something ". It used cherry/raspberry pie filling and was similar to a cobbler type dessert, and looked a bit disgusting like something squished on the road; but got excellent compliments on its tastiness. Now I have a need for it again and can't find the recipe. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
