Halloween is the perfect excuse to throw a party — costumes required, or not. Just pull out your favorite spooky Halloween decorations, mix up some witches brew and make up a batch of “Mummy Dogs” (see recipe below.) Add a couple of creepy party games and your guests are sure to have a blast.
I love looking for Halloween party ideas (Check out some favorites on my Pinterest pages.) The options are endless, and over the years I’ve attended some pretty awesome Halloween-themed Norwex parties!
So even if you’ve been shy about hosting a Norwex event until now, I recommend using this fun holiday as a way to get you going. Whether your guests are fans of Norwex or new to our products, you’ll be able to give them a ghoulish good time!
Try these yummy Mummy Dogs (courtesy of Martha Stewart) for an easy and tasty party snack:
All-purpose flour (for work surface)
1 large egg
1 (17 ½ ounce package of puff pastry)
20 hot dogs, halved horizontally
- On a lightly floured work surface, roll out one sheet of puff pastry into a 14-by-10-inch rectangle. Cut lengthwise into twenty 1/2-inch-wide strips. Repeat process with remaining sheet of puff pastry.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. In a small bowl, whisk together egg with 1 tablespoon water. Place one hot dog half on the narrow end of one strip of puff pastry. Wrap hot dog in puff pastry, spiraling down to enclose like a mummy; brush with egg mixture to adhere. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining hot dog halves and puff pastry. Brush tops of wrapped hot dogs with egg mixture; transfer to refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving with mustard.
