Spooktacular Halloween Treats

Yummy Mummy
Cut a loaf of French bread in half lengthwise.  Spread Alfredo or marinara sauce on bread.  Cover with thin strips of mozzarella cheese.  If you want other toppings put them under the cheese.  Add two slices of black olive for eyes, place them so they are "peaking out from the mummy's wrappings.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheeses is melted.
By some oval shaped cookies, these are Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies.  Break the cookies in half so each half looks like a tombstone.  Dip each piece in melted chocolate almond bark or melted semi-sweet Chocolate chips.  After they cool and harden write "RIP" in the tombstone with white frosting.  To make the patch of ground where the tombstones are planted, make a brownie mix or recipe.  The patches of earth were made on a baking stone so that they would be large and flat.  Push the "grave markers" into the still warm cookies so the will stay there when the cookies cool.  Sprinkle green decorating sugar on the brownie base and gently push in to look like grass. 
Monster Scat
Mix roasted peanuts with more melted chocolate almond bark or melted chocolate chips.  Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper.  Remove from the paper after cool and hardened.
