This Halloween appetizer may be one of the cutest recipes yet. Buttery garlic breadsticks, from a refrigerated tube, and prepared marinara sauce or pizza sauce make for a quick appetizer to serve before trick or treating or at your Halloween party.
This Halloween appetizer could be as involved as you want – you could make your own dough for the breadsticks and your own homemade marinara-which would be ambitious and delicious.
There is, however, no shame in using shortcuts. This recipe utilizes those shortcuts so that you can whip up this fun dish and still get out there to trick or treat with the kids.
HOW DO I MAKE BONES AND BLOOD?
This Halloween appetizer is deceptively easy. Crack open a tube of refrigerated breadsticks and separate them into twelve breadsticks.
Next, slit the bottom and top of each breadstick and tuck the ends diagonally under each side, forming the ‘bone’ end. Slather with butter and sprinkle with cheese. Then bake.
Serve with warmed marinara sauce, either jarred or homemade. I always have my homemade Sunday sauce in the freezer. It works perfectly for this dish.
A spooky Halloween appetizer that is perfect to serve before heading out for trick or treating. Breadstick ‘bones’ served with a side of marinara sauce ‘blood’ are sure to be a hit with the kids and the adults.
