So in my last Halloween video, I talked about how I was going to go as legendary singer Steve Perry to my Halloween party. But unfortunately I found out my friend Jeff stole that idea, jerk. So I guess the only logical option left is, a luchador.
Now in our last episode we talked about how to make Halloween drinks for your party. So this time we are going to learn how to make some easy Halloween snacks, these are so creative. You are going to love them. So, here is what we are going to do.
First one, is the Goblin Tongue. Now unfortunately, there is no easy way to make the Goblin Tongue. You simply have to find a Goblin and cut its tongue out. I kid, I kid. Anyways, you are going to get some mini bagels. Purchase some of those. We are going to open those up, cut them open and then we are going to spread some cream cheese on there. We are going to put the bagel together. Then we are going to take some baloney. We are going to make a small cut and we are going to make it look like a tongue. Then we are going to take that baloney and press that in to the middle of the bagel. Look at that, Goblin Tongues; so easy. The kids will love this stuff.
Okay, next up is the always favorite, edible eyeballs. You are going to need whole carrots for this one. You are going to cut them into one inch thick chunks like this and then with some of that leftover cream cheese, dab a little bit on the top of the carrot. Then we are going to take a raisin, a black pitted olive, or an almond, anything like that will work. Put that in the center of the cream cheese, and you have some edible eyeballs. I know Halloween party is incomplete without edible eyeballs, remember that.
Finally, the ever popular Spider Pretzel. This is one of my favorites. You are going to take two round crackers. Put some peanut butter on both sides, you want to put it on both sides, because it's going to be easier for the pretzel legs to stick. Then we are going to take eight pretzels. Make sure you get eight, and put four on one side, four on the other. You don't want a deformed spider. Then we are going to put the crackers together, make a cracker sandwich.
Finally, you are going to take some raisins, put some peanut butter on the raisins and put them right upfront because those are going to be your eyeballs. This is just so precious. The kids are going to die for this, okay. Enjoy your Halloween party.
Now you have your Halloween drinks, your Halloween snacks, and hopefully you have your costume. But you better not come as a luchador. We are going to have to wrestle for it.
