Chillingly creative drinks and treats for Halloween

If you’re planning a monster bash this Halloween, brew up drinks so frightfully delicious that it will spook the taste buds of every little ghost, witch and goblin.

The Spooky Smoothie is a flavorful combination of vanilla milk and Greek yogurt, which is blended with ice and topped with whipped cream. The fun is all in the orange-tinted Limited Edition TruMoo Lowfat Vanilla Milk, so make sure to serve it in a clear glass. And ghosts will rise from the dead for the chocolaty Monster Mash Mudslide.

Both of these tasty concoctions feature TruMoo, which is made with 35 percent less total sugar than the leading chocolate and vanilla milk competitor and has no high fructose corn syrup. That’s one thing that won’t scare you this Halloween season.

For a tried-and-true kid favorite, serve them this recipe for classic Pepperoni Pizza. It’s the perfect dinner time solution for busy families who crave the gooey, cheesy goodness of homemade pizza.


Spooky Snack Mix

5 cups crispy corn cereal squares
2 cups cinnamon-flavored bear-shaped graham crackers
2 cups salted peanuts
2 cups tiny twist pretzels
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Karo Light Corn Syrup
1/2 cup butter OR margarine
2 teaspoons Spice Islands Pure Vanilla Extract
3/8 teaspoon yellow food coloring plus 1/8 teaspoon red food coloring, OR 1/2 teaspoon orange paste food coloring
2 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups small candies such as candy corn, candy coated chocolate pieces, etc.
1/2 cup white OR semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons Mazola Corn Oil

Mix together cereal, crackers, peanuts and pretzels in large bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Combine sugar, corn syrup and butter in saucepan over medium-high heat. Stirring frequently, bring to boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla and food colorings (mixture will bubble). Drizzle glaze over snack mix and toss to coat. Gently stir in marshmallows and candy; immediately spread on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Melt chocolate chips and oil until smooth. Drizzle over snack mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set chocolate. Store mix in air-tight container. Makes: 18 cups.


Pepperoni Pizza

Crust:

1 3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast or RapidRise Yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup very warm water (120 F to 130 F)*
3 tablespoons Mazola Corn Oil

Toppings:

1/2 to 1 cup pizza sauce
Pepperoni slices
1 to 2 cups (4 to 8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 425 F. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead on floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. (If using RapidRise Yeast, let dough rest at this point for 10 minutes.) Pat dough with floured hands to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Or, roll dough on floured counter to 12-inch circle; place in greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Form rim by pinching edge of dough.

Spread with pizza sauce. Top with pepperoni and sprinkle with cheese. Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned. Makes: 1 (12-inch) pizza.

*If you don’t have a thermometer, water should feel very warm to the touch.
