4 Boo-tiful Tricks and Treats to Wow Your Little Goblins
There’s no denying that candy is the star of the show on Halloween, but it’s not the only treat to look forward to. Impress your family and friends with these spookily — and deliciously — easy DIY Halloween food designs that will make them howl for joy.
Scared of candy overload on Halloween? Don’t fear! The Veggie Ranch-O-Lantern is here. All you need is a paring knife, bell peppers, and a few extra minutes to create an edible masterpiece. Cut vegetables the day before Halloween and store in Glad® FLEX’N SEAL™ bags which stretch to lock in freshness. Once you’ve designed your Ranch-o-lanterns and are ready to serve, grab your veggies from the fridge and fill the peppers until they have broccoli brains or carrot hair!
Turn your pizza into a spider’s masterpiece by topping it with a creamy ranch web that will be sure to catch a few fans. (Creepy crawlers optional, yet encouraged)
Starting with a creamy bowl of Ranch Dip as the head of your skeleton, work toward the feet with colorful veggies of your choice to make a body (hot tip: red pepper slices make great ribs!). With carrot bones and broccoli toes, they’ll give everyone a healthy scare.
Cut bread or pizza dough (make at home or buy at the store) into 3-4-inch strips. Cut a slit into the middle of each short end and roll both sides away from the center back down toward the strips to form the bumps of the bones. Brush with oil or butter and sprinkle with ranch seasoning, then bake until golden. Dip in your favorite creamy ranch or “bloody” marinara sauce.
