A spooky spider bowl makes dinner more fun! Use Rhodes Dinner Rolls to create this fun Halloween bread bowl for your family.
Spider Dip Bowl
20 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls or 12 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
small tube black gel frosting
Combine 10 1/2 dinner rolls or 7 Texas rolls into a ball for the body and place on sprayed baking sheet. Shape 1 1/2 dinner rolls combined or 1 Texas roll into an oval and place next to the body for head. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise until double. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. While body is baking roll 8 dinner rolls or 4 Texas rolls cut in half into eight, 10-inch ropes for legs. Dip legs in melted butter and then in parmesan cheese. Place on a sprayed baking sheet in a tall, curved shape to resemble spider legs. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise 30-45 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Cut an X with a knife in 4 places along both sides of the cooled body on the top edge. Push one end of a cooled, curved leg into each of the X’s. Cut a circle out of the top of the body and pull out the bread, leaving bread around the inserted legs to stabilize them. Line the dip bowl with plastic wrap if desired. Fill the dip bowl with marinara sauce for dipping. Use black frosting gel to squeeze two beady eyes onto cooled spider head. Use more rolls to make extra legs for dipping, if desired.
Bone Chillin’ Breadsticks and Halloween Dip
12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 lb. processed cheese, Mexican style
10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
4 ounce can diced green chilies, undrained
Using the flat of your hand, roll the center part of a roll into a 6-inch rope leaving both ends large and rounded. With scissors, clip 1 1/2 inches into the center of each end. Separate and lay the cut sides flat on a large sprayed baking pan. They will look like bones. Brush well with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and poppy seeds.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise about 20-30 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes. Serve with Halloween Dip, if desired.
In a frying pan, brown ground beef until completely cooked. Drain and set aside. Cut cheese into 1-inch cubes and place in microwave safe bowl. Microwave until melted. Add tomatoes and green chilies and mix well. Combine cooked ground beef with cheese mixture and serve warm.
