Hot dogs wrapped in refrigerated bread sticks resemble brooms when sliced at one end.


  • 1 tube refrigerated breadstick dough
  • 12 beef or turkey franks


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay franks on a cutting board. On one side of the frank, come in 2 1/2 inches in from the end and make two cuts lengthwise to the end of the frank so that you have three equal strands, turn the frank on its side and repeat the two cuts so that you have a total of nine strands still connected to the frank. These will be the bristles of the broom. Using a strand of the breadstick dough, wrap the uncut end of the frank and press the dough together around it so that the dough is blended around the frank. This is the handle of the broomstick. Place the brooms (wrapped franks) on the cookie sheet and bake 11 to 15 minutes until the dough is golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy.

A floating hand, made with frozen raspberries, cranberry juice and gelatin, makes for a scary punch. Float the “hand” in a mixture of ginger ale and sparkling apple cider.


  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 2 1/2 cups cranberry juice
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 2 liters ginger ale
  • 2 liters sparkling apple cider (non-alcoholic)
  • 6 gummi snakes candy


To make the frozen hand: Wash and rinse the outside of a latex dish-washing glove. Turn glove inside out and set aside. In a 4 cup measuring cup, combine the thawed raspberries and cranberry juice. Pour 2 cups of the raspberry mixture into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over and let stand 2 minutes. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves. Mix back into the reserved raspberry mixture in the measuring cup. Pour raspberry mixture into the inverted glove. Gather up the top of the glove and tie securely with kitchen twine. Freeze until solid, or several days if possible. To serve: Carefully cut latex glove away from frozen hand. Place frozen hand, palm side up, leaning against side of a large punch bowl. Pour in ginger ale and sparkling cider. Garnish with gummy snakes.
