My kids asked if they could watch The Addams Family and of course I thought it was perfect for a spooky themed family movie night. Especially with Halloween right around the corner! For our Addams Family theme menu we went with several spooky dishes.
These mummy dogs are super easy to make. Simply cut strips of crescent roll dough and wrap around a hot dog and bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes. When done I used a food marker to make eyes.
Gummy Worm Jello
Green jell-o is a must for any spooky meal. Just top it with gummy worms or creepy crawly of your choice.
Monster Apples & Ghostly Carrots
For a snack that might bite back, slice green apples into quarters and carve out an opening in the middle. Spread peanut butter inside, add a slice of strawberry for the tongue, and insert sunflower seeds for a few teeth. These ghostly carrot slices are a fun addition as well. Cut thin slices on a diagonal and carve out some zig zags on the bottom. To finish them off, top with eye candy!
Grab some food grade gloves and fill with your snack mix of choice. Try popcorn, Pirate’s Booty (our choice), trail mix, or M&M’s for a tasty “Thing”.
Cousin It Haystacks & Creepy Cookies
End the meal with a sweet and spooky treat. I created “Cousin It” haystacks topped with the cutest little top hats. To make, combine 10 oz crunchy chow mein noodles with a package of melted butterscotch chips and 1 cup creamy peanut butter. To help make the shape, I line a mini muffin tin with wax paper.
I also picked up some cookies that were so good from a local to Kansas City baker. Find her on Instagram at @emmceebakes.
Feeling crafty? Sketch Lurch on a clear cup with a sharpie and fill with some green punch. To make the punch I blended 2 cups green hawaiian punch, 1 cup canned coconut milk, and 1/4 cup lime juice.
