Mummy pizzas


  • 1 thin and crispy pizza crust

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

  • 3 string cheese sticks

  • 3 sliced olives


  1. Cut out six 5 1/2-inch circles from the pizza crust and top each round crust with tomato sauce.

  2. Peel string cheese into smaller strips and lay each strip across the sauce, arranging cheese strings in the same direction to create a wrapping effect, like a mummy.

  3. Top with two olive slices for the eyes.

  4. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 350° F.

PB&J Spiders


  • 12 sliced bread

  • nut butter of your choice

  • jelly

  • 48 mini pretzel sticks

  • 12 mini chocolate chips


  1. Cut out twelve 5 1/2-inch circles from each slice of bread.

  2. Top one round bread slice with 1 tablespoon of nut butter and another round with 1 tablespoon of jelly. On the peanut butter round, secure 8 pretzel sticks from the center, so they stick out on the sides. Top with the jelly-smothered side of the other bread round. Repeat with remaining round bread slices.

  3. Secure mini chocolate chips (for the eyes) on top of the sandwich, using a little bit of peanut butter.

Monster apples


  • 3 green apples

  • nut butter of your choice

  • pine nuts

  • mango slices

  • candy eyes


  1. Cut apples into quarters lengthwise. From each apple slice, cut out a section on the skin side for the "monster's mouth."

  2. Fill "mouth" with nut butter and add pine nuts as "teeth" and a mango slice for a "tongue."

  3. Use more nut butter to secure two candy eyes to the green apple skin.
