2 cups water
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 can (15-1/2 ounces) chili beans, undrained

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Canned pasteurized cheddar cheese snack

Spritz tortillas with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning. With a 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter, cut out four circles from each tortilla (discard scraps). Cut a slit into the center of eight circles; shape each into a cone and secure with toothpicks.

Place circles and cones on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until crisp. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the water, vegetables, beans, tomatoes, sugar and remaining taco seasoning. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Discard toothpicks from cones. To assemble hats, place cones on circles; pipe a band of cheese around base of cones. Ladle soup into bowls and top with hats. Makes 8 servings (2 quarts).

Yummy Mummy Calzones

2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
50 slices pepperoni
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 pitted ripe olive, sliced and cut in half

Roll out each piece of dough into a rounded triangle shape, about 14-in. high x 11-in. wide at the base of the triangle. Place each on a parchment-lined baking sheet with the tip of the triangle toward you. Lightly score 4-in.-wide rectangle in the center of the triangle 2 in. from the top and bottom. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips at an angle up to the score line, leaving a triangle in the top center of the wide end for the head.

Inside the scored rectangle in the center, layer cheese, pizza sauce, pepperoni and green pepper. Shape the top center triangle into a head. Starting at the head, fold alternating strips of dough at an angle across filling stopping at the last strip on each side. Fold the bottom dough tip up over the filling, then fold the remaining two strips over the top; press down firmly.

Brush dough with egg. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes. For eyes, press 1 olive slice into each head. Discard or save the remaining slices for another use. Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Makes 8-10 servings.

Marzipan Witch, Pumpkins and Cauldron

1 can (8 ounces) almond paste
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
Purple, orange, green, yellow, brown and red gel food coloring
Garlic press
Large serving board
Yellow gift wrap for covering board
Clear cellophane for covering board

Cover serving board with yellow gift wrap, taping wrap on the back side of board. Cover wrapped board with cellophane in the same way. Set board aside for now. Prepare marzipan according to the following recipe.

Crumble almond paste into a large bowl. Knead in corn syrup. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, kneading well after each addition until thoroughly blended. Tint 1/2 cup of marzipan purple, kneading in a small amount of food coloring at a time until desired color is achieved. In the same way, tint 1/4 cup of marzipan orange, 2 tablespoons green and 1 tablespoon each yellow, brown and red. Leave 1 tablespoon plain. Discard remaining marzipan or set aside for another use.

Shaping Marzipan: Refer to the photo as a guide while shaping marzipan as directed in the instructions that follow. Gently press the shaped pieces together and position as shown on the covered serving board.

Witch: With 4-1/4 teaspoons of purple marzipan, shape the witches hat, dress and shoes. With 1-1/4 teaspoons of green marzipan, shape the head, nose, hands and two 1-inch long ropes. With 1/4 teaspoon of orange marzipan, shape two 1-inch-long ropes. Twist one orange and one green 1-inch rope together, forming one of the witch's legs.

Repeat with the remaining 1-inch ropes for the other leg. Press 1/2 teaspoon of orange marzipan through a garlic press. Attach the pieces to the head for hair. With plain marzipan, shape the white area of each eye. With brown marzipan, add a pupil to each eye. With red marzipan, roll a thin rope for the mouth.

Pumpkin With 1-1/2 teaspoons of orange marzipan, shape a 1-1/2 inch ball. Slightly flatten the top and bottom. Using a sharp knife, make shallow ridges around the sides of the pumpkin from center top to bottom. Measure 1/4 teaspoon of green marzipan for the stem, leaves and vine tendril. Shape a small diamond shape for the stem.

For the leaves, flatten a small amount of green marzipan to an 1/8-inch thickness between two sheets of waxed paper. Remove the top sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut out two leaf shapes and make veins on each. Roll a small piece of green marzipan into a thin rope and spiral it slightly for the vine tendril.

Cauldron: With 1-1/2 teaspoons of purple marzipan, shape a 1-1/2 inch ball. Slightly flatten the top and bottom. With purple marzipan, shape a 3-1/2-inch-long x 1/8 inch-thick rope and four 1/4-inch balls. Place the rope around the top edge of the cauldron for the rim. Evenly space the balls around the bottom of the cauldron for the legs.

With orange, yellow and plain marzipan, shape five candy corns. Place inside the cauldron. Makes 1-1/4 cups (enough for four witches, four pumpkins and four cauldrons). Finished size: Witch is about 6 inches long x 2-3/4 inches wide. Cauldron is about 2 inches high x 11-1/2 inches wide. Each pumpkin is about 1-1/2 inches high x 1-1/4 inches wide.

Popcorn Owls

5 quarts popped popcorn
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 to 2 tablespoons marshmallow creme
20 candy corn candies
20 orange candy slices
10 M&M's miniature baking bits
Shoestring black licorice

Place popcorn in a large oven-proof bowl; keep warm in oven at 200 In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, water, corn syrup and salt. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 250 (hard-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vinegar until butter is melted. Immediately pour over popcorn; toss to coat.

When mixture is cool enough to handle, quickly shape into five 3-1/4-in. balls and five 4-in. balls, dipping hands in cold water to prevent sticking. Flatten bottom of popcorn balls slightly to allow them to sit flat. Place a small ball on top of a large ball, forming the owl's head and body.

Immediately decorate owl, using marshmallow creme to attach candies. Add candy corn for claws. Press the orange slices into sides for wings. Flatten and cut additional orange slices to make triangle ears and nose and 3/4-in. circular eyes. Press M&M's into orange circles to complete the eyes. Add a 3-in. licorice strip above the eyes. Makes 5 owls.

Ghostly Shepherd's Pie

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
2 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained
1 jar (12 oz) home-style beef gravy
1 3/4 cups water
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 cups instant mashed potatoes
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, slightly beaten

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Cook beef and onion in skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.

Set 12 peas (from frozen vegetables) aside for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegetables, tomatoes and gravy to beef mixture. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.

Spoon beef mixture into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) or oval (2 1/2-quart) glass baking dish. With large spoon, make 6 mounds of potato mixture on top of beef mixture to resemble ghosts. Place 2 reserved peas on each mound to resemble eyes. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated. Makes 6 servings

Spooky Pizza

1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup Old El Paso salsa (any variety)
3/4 frozen whole kernel corn
1/4 cup water
2 cups Original Bisquick mix
1/3 cup very hot water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
Toppings, such as orange and green bell pepper strips, sliced ripe olives and cherry tomato wedges, if desired

Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 450. Grease 12-inch pizza pan. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in salsa, corn and 1/4 cup water. Heat to boiling; remove from heat.

Mousse-Filled Witches

1-3/4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
1 cup milk chocolate chips
4 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 teaspoon shortening
1 package (4-3/4 ounces) chocolate ice cream sugar cones
Halloween sprinkles
12 thin chocolate wafers (2-1/4-inch diameter)

For mousse, in a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup cream to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the remaining cream until stiff peaks form; fold into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt semisweet chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip pointed tips of ice cream cones a third of the way into melted chocolate; roll in sprinkles. Refrigerate until set. Just before serving, spoon mousse into cones. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Invert onto a serving platter. Makes 1 dozen.
