Corn Dog Mummies

Happy Halloween! Bet we can make you say, "boo." What did the grandpa monster say to his creepy grandson? "You gruesome!" Boooooo. Told ya so. OK, let's get this party started. Cara over at Fork & Beans whips up some crazy-fun holiday-themed goodies. Get your friends howling with these gluten-free, cruelty-free little monsters. You'll dig 'em... and be screaming for more.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour mix
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup non-dairy milk + 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp cornstarch (for coating)
4 Tofu Pups (or your favorite vegan hot dog)
4 lollipop sticks
Vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup Vegenaise “mayo” (placed in a squeeze bottle)
Mustard (for the Mummies’ eyes)

Directions:
1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or in a pot until it reaches 350°F.
2. Roll each hot dog in cornstarch, creating a thin layer to coat prior to dipping into batter.
3. Place a stick into each of the hot dogs and set on a plate.
4. Combine corn meal, flour, salt, baking soda and powder.
5. Add vegan milk/vinegar and oil to dry ingredients, mix.
6. Dip each hot dog on a stick into the batter. Place into hot oil and cook 3 minutes or until nicely browned.
7. Place on a paper towel-lined plate to soak up excess oil.
8. Using the squeeze bottle filled with Vegenaise, create lines on the corn dogs like mummy bandages.
9. Squirt mustard for the eyes.

Sweet & Sara Marshmallows

Sweet & Sara's delectable, fluffy marshmallow creations are delicious and all vegan (no gelatin like the scary marshmallows of lore). These squishy bites of edible bliss are rich, creamy, and hauntingly divine. For Halloween, they've whipped up some friendly ghosts, chocolate-dipped bats, black cats, and spiders. You'll be tempted to save them as decorations, but you won't be able to resist gobbling them up. Try their wonderful flavor varieties like strawberry and pumpkin spice. And choose from other products like s'mores, rice crispy treats, vegan graham crackers, and more!

Scare up your favorites and place an order at SweetAndSara.com.


Compassionate Trick-or-Treating

Eek! Halloween snuck up on you and you forgot to load up on candy for the little goblins soon to be pounding on your front door. Don't lock the doors and hide. It may be too late to order specialty vegan candy, but there are tons of "vegan-by-accident" treats to keep the monsters at bay. Your local grocery store or drug store will have stacks of choices. You'll recognize your old favorites like Pez, Dum-Dums, Hot Tamales, Cracker Jack, and Charms Blow Pops. Pick up some for the kiddies and some for yourself.
