There’s no bones about it….

I’m going to leave October behind with one last Halloween recipe. It’s a quick and easy recipe and actually looks quite nice next to Mr. Meathead.


I called these Dead Vampire Bones because they were very garlicky.

Let’s get our two whole ingredients ready:


One tube of Pillsbury garlic breadsticks will make 16 bones. Open the tube and unroll the dough. Is there anyone who actually inserts a spoon in the seam, like it says on the instructions? Because I was raised to just smack it on the counter. When I was a kid, I loved that sound, because I knew my mom was makin’ biscuits for breakfast!


Cut the dough in half, unless you’re making life sized femur bones. Separate each of the bread sticks and then make a slit in each end. Take the slits and roll into balls.


Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with coarse salt, then bake at 350° for about 12 minutes. I found them to be perfectly garlicky, but if you are really scared of vampires crave more, sprinkle with garlic powder before baking.


There you have it! It doesn’t get any easier than this. They’re prefect for just munching as you hand out candy or as a yummy dipper, with some bloody marinara sauce, at your Halloween party.


Happy Halloween!

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…
