Don’t you guys love making Halloween snacks this time of year? Me too! Whether is mozzarella eyeballs or these Halloween Snack Bones, there’s just something fun about adding the “ick” factor to your everyday snacking. Add to the fact that my normally picky
monsters boys absolutely gobbled these up in seconds and it’s a double win/win for everyone!
Making these really couldn’t be easier! Just take some hot dog wieners, slice them at the ends, and wrap in a cressant roll. Since we’re vegetarian, I bought some MorningStar veggie hot dogs from Albertsons in El Paso to make our “bones.” I absolutely love Albertsons’ “Hunger Is” campaign which is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to improve healthy outcomes for hungry children and their families. Right now they’re specifically focusing on the idea of “Make Breakfast Happen So Kids Can Be Hungry For More.” So important! As a mother who understands the almost primal need to get food in her children, this cause is near and dear to my heart.
Once you’ve picked up some hot dog wieners and a pack of crescent rolls, just slice the two ends (leaving approximately an 1 1/2″ in the middle) and wrap with two crescent roll triangles. I found it easiest to slice the roll halfway through to wrap separately around each wiener slice (see second image below).
Place assembled “bones” on an ungreased baking sheet and following the instructions on your crescent packaging, bake in the oven until golden. You could probably freeze the unbaked wieners at this point too if you’d like to have some on stock for future growling stomachs!
Delicious & Good
These Halloween Snack Bones are crazy easy to make and delicious too! Plus, when you purchase the select “Hunger Is” products at Albertsons from Sept. 1 – Sept. 31, you’re contributing to helping improve the lives of hungry children (purchase of select items in September 2016 will trigger at least $0.10 donation up to $1 million). Even if your products don’t qualify for the campaign, you also have the option of donating at the register. I think we all can agree that no child should have to go to school hungry!
