Mummy Hot Dogs 
Ingredients
1 can Pillsbury® Reduced Fat Crescents
8 turkey hot dogs
½ teaspoon yellow mustard

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 350° F. 
Unroll the crescent rolls on a cutting board and pinch the seams together, then cut the crescent into ¼-inch strips, 
Wrap 2 strips around the turkey dog, leaving an opening near the top for the mummy's face. 
Transfer the mummies to an ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. 
Using a toothpick, paint two mustard eyes on the face, and serve with preferred dipping sauce

Pretzel Spider Web
Serves 6
Serving Size 2 webs
(Makes 12 webs)

Ingredients:
48 mini pretzel rods
2 ounces melting white chocolate

Instructions:
Start by carefully breaking the pretzel rods in half, using 4 for each web. 
On a silicone baking mat, or a piece of parchment paper, lay out the webs by placing the pretzel rods in a snowflake shape with the broken ends meeting in the middle.  
Melt the chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl in 15 second intervals until it is melted.
Allow the chocolate to cool so it is safe enough to touch, and then transfer it to a resealable ziplock bag and cut a very narrow tip at the end. 
Pipe the chocolate in the center of the pretzel web to connect the pieces, then drizzle in a circular motion to make the web. Each web will use about 1½ teaspoons of melted chocolate.
Allow to harden, then gently pop them off of the surface with a flat metal spatula.

Serves 1
Makes 1 sandwich

Ingredients:
2 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
1 tablespoon Smucker’s® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
6 mini pretzel rods
2 dark chocolate chips (0.05 oz total)

Instructions:
Using a biscuit cutter, or a 3-inch circle cookie cutter, cut a circle out of each slice of bread.
Spread the peanut butter on one side of the bread, and press 4 pretzel rod “legs” into each side of the peanut butter covered bread. 
Top it with the other piece of circular bread.
Make a small dot of peanut butter on the top of the sandwich to adhere the chocolate chip “eyes” to the spider.
