#1 Bloody Hotdogs
1 dozen hotdogs
1 dozen hotdog buns
This recipe is extremely easy to make and that is why it is perfect for a last-minute Halloween snack. All you will need is hot dogs, hot dog buns, and ketchup. If there are people who like mustard, you can add this ingredient as well.
You need to bake the hot dogs a little so they turn a bit darker. You can bake them in a pan on the hotplate without adding any cooking oil. When they are ready, get a knife and make a few horizontal cuts on the hot dogs without going all the way through.
Then get the buns and put some ketchup on each side of them. Put a hot dog in each one of them and apply some more ketchup in some of the cuts you made on the hotdog. This way the hot dogs will look like cut fingers which will add some creepiness to the snack.
You can put all the ready hotdogs on a tray which you could also decorate with some ketchup “blood”. You can improvise as well by adding some other details on the tray which you find suitable for the occasion but basically this is all and the snack is ready!
#2 Eyeball Sandwiches
green olives (with the stones removed)
The next snack idea is sandwiches with delicious “eyeballs”. The recipe is again easy to be made and very fast and at the same time it will do a great job adding some more creepiness to the Halloween set at your place.
What you will need to do first is to cut the baguette into slices. You can toast them a little bit if you prefer more crispy sandwiches.
Then you need to apply a spoonful of ketchup on the slice of baguette and put on top of if a slices or two or prosciutto. It would be better if you made the prosciutto slices somewhat wrinkled to match the finishing eyeball sandwich look.
Then you need to make the eyeballs for the sandwiches. You need to get a mozzarella ball and cut it in halves. Then get a big straw and go through the center of the mozzarella halves with it to make room for the iris and the pupil of the eye.
As you can probably guess, the green olives will play the part of the iris of the eyeballs and the black ones will be the pupils. For this purpose you need to cut the green olives into circles.
Then put a round piece of green olive inside the mozzarella half. And lastly get a black olive and cut a small piece of it which needs to fit the hole of the green olive slice. Put it inside it and then the “eye” will be ready.
Lastly, you need to put the “eye” on top of the sandwich with the ketchup and prosciutto. Tuck the prosciutto around the eye a bit to make it look like it is a real part of it. Do the same with the rest of the slices.
And voila, the sandwiches will be ready! Easy, fast, and delicious!
