Alright,  we are having a Halloween party folks! By now you already know that I am not big on Halloween. Well, I wasn’t. Until my daughter decided she wants a Halloween-themed birthday. All of a sudden, I am trying to come up with several Halloween party recipes and I am enjoying every moment of it.

Using my creative genius, if I can say so myself, and some borrowed ideas from Pinterest, I came up with several recipes for our ghoul day.  This particular recipe is creepy but fun to eat. Make sure you add this Halloween recipe to your Halloween party must-haves.  You will have no regrets. They are easy to make and who doesn’t like hot dogs?

Of course, I will not leave you hanging without telling you what to do with these. You can simply use this Halloween fingers in your hotdog buns or step it up with with a Halloween party Virgin Mary. Your guests will be amazed! Not big on tomato drinks? My Virgin Sangria will substitute just fine. Make sure you check it out!
