1. Monster Mash-Ups
Made like traditional crispie bars with a bit of green food coloring and some special detail tossed in, these Frankies will crack you up!
First, grab your fave Monster cereal -- Boo Berry, Frankenberry or Count Chocula (or any of your favorite cereals will work).
Melt marshmallows and add some green food coloring, then mix in the monster cereal.
Press cereal mixture into a greased 8"x8" pan.
When the bars are set, turn them out onto a cutting board and cut into cubes with a sharp knife.
The fun part! Decorate cereal bars to look like li'l Frankensteins or monsters! Use candy eyeballs, decorating strips, black icing, or whatever you want.
Then mwahahaha! These monsters are ready to go!
2. Totino’s Graveyard
This graveyard is too nom to fear! Totino's gravestones sit in a savory dip made in a snap from Progresso Recipe Starters. Spread the green sauce over the layer of pizza rolls as the "ground." Cover it with fresh parsley as the "grass." Decorate tombstone pizza rolls, if desired, and place them upright in the graveyard. Complete the yard as you want, with signs, ghosts -- and you've got a BOO-ti-ful appetizer!
Pick up your fave flave of Totino's pizza rolls.
Bake the pizza rolls according to package directions.
Prepare the graveyard base, using Progresso Recipe Starters Basil Sauce -- delish! -- and a bit of green food coloring.
Lay the baked pizza rolls in rows on a platter. Reserve some to use as headstones later.
3. Glow-In-The-Dark Apple Cider Cocktails
Seasonal apple cider pairs up with tonic water and a black light to make these drinks glow!
You'll need a black light to make these cocktails glow!
