Halloween Mummy Jalapeno Poppers

mummiespin

Cute foods are the best foods, right?! I think so, especially when it comes to appetizers. I mean if something is already supposed to be small then can’t it be cute right along with small. The holidays are the perfect time for cute appetizers, and I take full advantage of this glorious time of year. I get plenty of eye rolls from my husband. He just wants to eat, ya know. So this year I made something cute out of a food he likes – Halloween Jalapeno Poppers. I still got the eye rolls, but he ate all of them so I win.

As usual, there’s always a way to make these your own. I just can’t make a recipe that can’t be changed up to others personal preferences. I’m sure it’s because I’m could be what’s called a picky eater. I like options. With the Halloween Jalapeno Poppers it’s super easy to change up the eyes to any flavor you’d like. Siracha, ketchup, chocolate chips, candy eyes, olives, more peppers. Whatever you’d like! Whatever your guests like! Make some with each so you have options! Options are wonderful.

Hello everyone, I am Chidinma from Fruitful Kitchen. I am very glad to have my first guest post featured on My Cooking Spot. Now let’s see what I bring to you today!

A month ago, when my friends invited me to dinner, I thought it would be just an ordinary night- classic meal (nothing too much), wine, and conversation. Luckily for me, that couldn’t be further from the truth, because that night I fall in love with a wonderful dish – Chicken Fingers with Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce. [Read more…]
