|Carnival of the Creepy Crawlers party appetizers.|
Being our theme involved a carnival, I was sure to have some popular midway fare, like popcorn, corn dogs, and cotton candy on hand. Of course, no ordinary food would do – the popcorn was infested with chocolate roaches, the corn dogs were decorated like bumble bees, and the cotton candy looked like webs full of candy spiders. We also had frog chips available to scoop up fly filled taco dip, a large caterpillar of buns ready for bar-b-que pork, a sweet and a savory cheese ball rat, spider web chips and dip, caterpillar cucumbers, chocolate mice, bug shaped bread, and more.
In upcoming posts I will share several of these recipes with you here at Hungry Happenings.
If you are interested, I will also be sharing some of our Creepy Crawler Carnival game ideas on my Hungry Halloween blog. Stay tuned.
I have already posted some recipes that I created for this party. Some recipes have been re-purposed for other occasions like Valentine’s Day (sound odd, I know, but it worked for my Bee Mine Bumble Bee Corn Dogs), plus many of these recipes can be used for a bug or creepy crawler themed party. Click on the links under the pictures below to go directly to the recipes. In some cases you will be taken to my Hungry Halloween website.
Tail – just roll some of the cheese ball into a tail
I also want to share a recipe idea from Tiffany at Cute Food For Kids. I sure wish these little mice would have been on my Carnival of the Creepy Crawlers buffet table last year. This guests at my party would have really loved this fun little appetizer made from a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese. I think this is one of the cutest appetizers I’ve ever seen. Don’t ya just love it? If you haven’t visited Cute Food For Kids, be sure to do so. Tiffany is incredibly creative and has so many wonderful ideas for kids lunches and snacks.
I’m busy in my candy kitchen for the next few days working on a few orders, but I did have time over the weekend to make a few more Creepy Crawler recipes. I’ll get the posts put together soon and be back to share them with you. In the mean time, don’t forget to enter my current Giveaway (expires September 18. 2011.)
