Welcome to my second Halloween page! I've found more wonderful
treats for all the little (and older!) goblins in your life. Plan a
post-Trick-or-Treat party, and have these on hand for a Halloween
BOO-fet when they return home! Have fun!!!
3 lbs. chicken wings
12 oz. can Coke or Pepsi
12 oz. bottle ketchup
Spray a 9x13-inch pan with non-stick vegetable spray. Arrange
wings in pan, cover with foil and bake at 425-degrees for 45 minutes,
or until tender. Remove from oven. Mix Coke and ketchup; spoon
over wings. Bake uncovered for an additional 45 minutes, basting
occasionally. Makes about 2-1/2 dozen.
1 pre-made soft pizza crust
1 bag of pre-cut pepperoni
1 (8 oz) pkg. mozzarella & cheddar cheese mix
1 container pizza sauce
1 Green pepper
Any other veggies you'd like
Jack-O-Lantern-shaped cake tin
Following the instructions on the pizza crust tube for pre-baking
the crust after you shape it to the Jack-O-Lantern pan. After the
crust is done, cover it with the pizza sauce of your choice, add
pepperoni and any veggies you want. If you don't have a
pumpkin-shaped pan, you can cut English Muffins in half and make
them that way.
Cover generously with the cheddar/mozzarella cheese mix, making
sure to cover anything underneath it. Cut green peppers in to thin
slivers, save a larger piece to make the stem. Lay pieces out to
make the indentations of the pumpkin. Cut pieces of pepperoni to
make the eyes, nose and mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern.
Bake according to the instructions on the pizza crust wrapper,
usually about 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and
the crust will be golden.
