to pack up the Halloween things, here’s one more idea that you are NOT going to want to forget! We just had one of those Relief Society “meetings” last night – a Holiday Baking Extravaganza. Even though Halloween has passed, I had seen this incredibly hideous idea and I was afraid that I might forget about it if I didn’t follow through and make it before next year…and this is one that I don’t want to forget.
I was cruising around the Rhodes website and when all of a sudden this picture of a basket of ugly fingers was before me! You have to go check these out! I don’t want to pass on an idea or recipe that I haven’t personally tried, that is overly time consuming or hard to make. So I had to try it: Wicked Witch Dippers. Our extravaganza had 4 categories…Potluck Superstar, Kids in the Kitchen, Impress the In-laws and Spooky Sensations. Can you guess which one I made them for? I won the category – okay, I was the only one that entered anything in that category, so the win was by default!
The ones on the website used a white bread roll dough, but I used the multi-grain roll dough – the seeds and color were perfect for my pudgy, grotesquely gruesome witch fingers. These took a little time, and I know how I will do them differently next time. I was a little rushed yesterday afternoon. But they were quite a topic of conversation. For some reason, the ladies were asking if I used a Sharpie or real nail polish to paint those black fingernails. These are totally edible…you will find the secret on the link above! I will definitely remember to make these monstrosities again! I even have ideas on how to alter them for other possibilities, but that may have to wait until after Christmas.
Just a word of warning…these are probably not a good idea for anyone that is overly squeamish or might be insulted by the idea of a bowl of body (sort of looking) parts. Personally, I think a bowl of spaghetti sauce would be perfect for dipping…cool visual, don’t you think? (Help…I’ve been hanging around my ghoulish kids a lot lately!) Thanks, Rhodes, for the great idea.
*justhelen tested, family approved!
There were some really great ideas and recipes at our UC 1st Ward Relief Society Holiday Baking Exstravaganza last night and I have asked for guests to share them with you. Here’s a teaser for next week – something you will have to “Gobble, Gobble!” right up!
