Are you looking for a fun appetizer for Halloween? This Mummy Pizza Dip will be a hit with your ghosts and goblins!
This recipe was modified from the Gooseberry Patch Homemade Harvest cookbook.
Mummy Pizza Dip
Halloween evening is crazy busy and this dip is the perfect after school snack or quick meal.
We live in the country so we don’t trick-or-treat in a subdivision we drive to our stops and usually stay a while at each one. We need a snack/meal that will fill up my goblins so we don’t have any meltdowns! This dip is perfect for that!
I love that this dip uses ingredients I normally have in my kitchen and ones that I know my kids will eat!
Mini pepperoni would work great in this but make sure you still have two regular size ones for the eyes.
Green or black olives work great to finish off the eyes.
String cheese makes the perfect mummy wraps and the little ones will love stringing it for you, but if your house is anything like mine they may get eaten along the way! 🙂
You can make year round by ignoring the part of the recipe that involved the string cheese.
Enjoy with crackers or toasted baguettes!
