Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) -
Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV)- Before you send your ghosts and goblins out for an evening of trick-or-treating, fill their bellies with something substantial and FUN! Halloween is on a school night this year and that always makes for a hectic afternoon. Kids get home from school excited for the evening's activities and there isn't a lot of time to make and eat a full family meal when you are also on costume duty.
I've made these Mummy Dogs for the past few years and my kids as well as their friends, LOVE them! They're cute, easy to make and quick to eat. You'll have your trick-or-treaters fed and out the door in no time this year. Happy Halloween!
