Hey everyone! Halloween is coming up faster than expected and what is a better way to celebrate then making delicious snacks? Giving that we are a diverse school, I put together a variety of “spooky” snacks everyone can prepare in a short amount of time. Depending on what you like, sweet, salty, or even healthy all of these recipes can be made in under 30 minutes. Here are some of the simplest yet delicious recipes according to food incorporated websites: geniuskitchen.com, pillspury.com, and Delish.com
Ghost Pizza Bagels
Salt and Filling:
According to the website, Delish.com the total time to make these is 20 minutes! It is considerably easy and less messy than a normal snack to make. The ideal amount that this snack can provide is 8 servings! This warm snack can be a great food to serve at a bonfire on a chilly night. Let’s get down to basics, here is the ingredients you will need to make this “spooky” snack.
- 8 slices of mozzarella
- 8 mini bagels ( I prefer normal size bagels).
- 1 cup of marinara sauce
- 4 black olives
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then cut mozzarella slices into ghost shapes using a knife, preferably a paring knife. Grab a bagel and cut it in half , then spread a thin layer of marinara over the bagel and top it with mozzarella ghost. By now your oven should be preheated, after you put your ghost bagels in the oven, cut the black olives into little pieces for eyes. As your ghost bagels cool down, put pieces of olives for the ghost’s eyes. Now it’s ready to serve for your friends and family!

Then with the miniature marshmallows put 5 of them on the side of the peanut buttered apple.
