Halloween Treats for the Whole Family
This year, Kathryn revisits treats made in the past but also tries some new treats. Of course, Kathryn uses her 360 cookware as well as her favorite cooking spray, Duck Fat from Cornhusker Kitchens.
Halloween Spider Bread Dip
16 frozen Rhodes Yeast dinner rolls, or any frozen Yeast Dinner Roll Dough 1 egg white 1 tbsp water 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese 2 olive slices
- 16 frozen Rhodes Yeast dinner rolls or any frozen Yeast Dinner Roll Dough
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp water
- 3 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 2 olive slices
- Place frozen rolls on the board or counter and spray with nonstick spray. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to thaw until soft but still cold, about 2 hours.
- Use two rolls to make a small ball for the spider's head. Use ten rolls to make a larger ball for the spider's body.
- Cut the remaining 4 rolls in half (with one half slightly larger than the other). Roll each half into a rope. Make 4 to 12-inch ropes and four to 10-inch ropes.
- Arrange balls and ropes on a lined cookie sheet into a spider shape.
- Spray with nonstick spray and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Allow to rise until quite puffed, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Whisk together egg white and water and brush all over the spider. Sprinkle legs with parmesan cheese if desired.
- Bake spider for 28-30 minutes until quite brown. Cool completely.
- Use a knife to make slits for the eyes and press an olive slice into each slit.
- Use a knife to cut a circle out of the body, and then tear out the bread to make a bowl. Fill with cold dip. Surround with veggies and serve.
