I found two such recipes that I wanted to share to inspire you, but feel free to share your favourites in the comment section.
These toothsome treats are a fun and healthy break from Halloween sweets.

- Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth.
- If you're not going to serve them right away, baste the apples with orange juice to keep them from browning.
Mummy Meat Loaves Recipe from Woman's Day
- Active time: 30 minutes
- Total time: 40 minutes
- Serves 12
- Recipe Ingredients
- 3/4 lb white or yellow potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-in. pieces
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp ketchup
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup panko or plain bread crumbs
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 medium carrot, coarsely grated
- 3/4 lb ground beef
- 1/2 lb ground pork
- 12 grape tomatoes
- 3/4 cup lowfat sour cream
- 24 frozen peas, thawed
- Heat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with foil liners. Place the potatoes in a pot, add enough cold water to cover and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat and simmer until just tender, 15 to 18 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the eggs, ketchup, Worcestershire, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper; stir in the bread crumbs. Add the garlic and carrot and mix to combine. Add the beef and pork and mix just until incorporated. Divide the meat mixture among the foil liners and push a tomato into the center of each one. Transfer to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the meat registers 155°F, 14 to 16 minutes.
- Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the sour cream and 1/4 tsp salt and mash until very smooth. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-in. ribbon tip (Wilton 104). Transfer the meat loaves to a platter and pipe the potatoes back and forth over each top to resemble a mummy’s wrapping. Place 2 peas on each for eyes.
