Tasty Thursday-Halloween Recipes

My kids love these! I have to make them every Halloween! I usually just put mini chocolate chips as the eyes. There is a wafer Nutter Butter Cookie so make sure you get the sandwich cookie. My kids call these Ghost Cookies.

Easy Ghost Cookies (From Kraft)
1 pkg. (6 oz.) BAKER'S Premium White Baking Chocolate
18 NUTTER BUTTER Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Decorating gels and/or assorted small candies
MICROWAVE chocolate in medium microwavable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
SPREAD chocolate onto one side of each cookie for the ghost's "body." Cool slightly.
DECORATE with gels and/or candies to create "faces." Cool until chocolate is set.
Fun Idea Place decorated cookies in small gift bags to give to trick-or-treaters. Family Fun For a quick Halloween dessert, prepare JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling as directed on package; spoon into dessert cups. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with decorated cookies just before serving.
I am making these this year, I think they are so cute!

Spooky Eyeball Tacos(from Kraft)
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (1-1/4 oz.) TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Taco Seasoning Mix
3/4 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
3/4 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1 can (2-1/4 oz.) sliced pitted ripe olives
MIX meat and seasoning mix. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls; place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
BAKE at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through. Fill each taco shell with 1 meatball; drizzle with salsa. Top with 2 meatballs dipped in sour cream. Garnish with olives to make "eyeballs."
