As soon as I saw this super fast, really cool Graveyard Bean Dip idea at bloggy buddy Jacqueline's I added it to our Sunday dinner. Her ghosts were so cute, my ghosts turned out a little sad looking... too much haunting this close to Halloween I guess:@) I do know some sour creams are thicker than others, so you might want to keep that in mind. I used a food writer pen for the lettering and while it worked great for the tombstones, I couldn't get it to leave a mark for the ghost eyes. Actually, I might try to cut a ghost shape out of a slice of cheddar the next time, a small cookie cutter would work great! And I'm thinking you could use a sharpie for the tombstones if you tell folks not to eat them.
This is basically a deconstructed Mexican Seven Layer Dip, so add whatever your crew likes and serve with tortilla chips or Fritos.
My boys are grown and on their own and while the day job puts food on the table, it doesn't feed the soul. So this Philly Girl started Pig In Mud. Please join me as I welcome each season and holiday through brief posts focusing on home cooking, baking and crafts. I hope you'll find this a happy place that provides inspiration:@) Lynn
