In today’s post: This spider bread dip bowl is easier to make than you’d think! Pair it with veggies for a great Halloween appetizer or party food idea.
When it comes to Halloween food, I am really not into the gross out ideas. I know, that probably means I’m getting old (I am) and grumpy (maybe that too). I’d just rather eat something that looks good than something that looks gross any day, and Halloween is no exception.
16frozen Rhodes dinner rolls
3tbspgrated parmesan cheese
Place frozen rolls on board or counter and spray with nonstick spray. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to thaw until soft but still cold, about 2 hours.
Use 2 rolls to make a small ball for the spider's head. Use 10 rolls to make a larger ball for the spider's body.
Cut the remaining 4 rolls in half (with one half slightly larger than the other). Roll each half into a rope. Make 4 12 inch ropes and 4 10 inch ropes.
On a lined cookie sheet, arrange balls and ropes into spider shape.
Spray with nonstick spray and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Allow to rise until quite puffed, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together egg white and water and brush all over spider. Sprinkle legs with parmesan cheese if desired.
Bake spider 28-30 minutes until quite brown. Cool completely.
Use a knife to make slits for the eyes and press an olive slice into each slit.
Use a knife to cut a circle out of the body, and then tear out the bread to make a bowl. Fill with cold dip. Surround with veggies and serve.
