Dead Man’s meatloaf

Grab your favorite recipe for meatloaf and mold it into the shape of a body. Pour a tomato-based pasta sauce over the top, and bake it for about an hour on 350F.  I found the ghoulish mask at a Halloween store and then put a knife into the chest.

Hot dog fingers

All you need to make these creepy fingers is hot dogs, refrigerated biscuit dough, and sliced almonds. Assemble and then bake. Use a knife to score creases in the fingers before baking. Don’t forget to put out blood tomato sauce or ketchup for dipping your hot dog fingers.

Skeleton dip

This is a fantastic healthy alternative for your Halloween party. All you need is your favorite dip and lots of fresh vegetables for dipping.

The meatloaf is killing me (pun intended) I want to make this for my kids – they would love it.

That meatloaf is delightfully disgusting! We always have fondue on Halloween (Fondueween) and I could arrange the veggies like that skeleton guy. Neato

When I clicked I was thinking in my mind…hmmm something for B’s kg class party…then I saw the meatloaf, don’t think that would go too well! It is hilarious though!

I love that crazy meat loaf! Reminds me we haven’t had meatloaf in a while… mmm comfort food. My mom once made a meat loaf sculpted to look like my dad’s face. It was kind of gross. I guess that’s true love?

The veggie skeleton came originally from Family Fun I think. I have the magazine from about 12 years ago. They used to have it on the website, too but I couldn’t find it this year.
