Halloween can be so much fun, it really is amazing the creative things you can do with food and kids love it so much. This Halloween instead of turning to my staple Halloween treats I created something new and without the full calorie guilt. My love of Dr.Pepper is well known and Dr.Pepper TEN is my absolute favorite, not quite diet but not all the calories either. I swapped out original Dr.Pepper for Dr.Pepper TEN to make my favorite Slow Cooker Dr.Pepper BBQ Chicken and then I put it inside crescent rolls to make creepy fun Witch’s Fingers. This is the perfect hearty snack or appetizer for kids on Halloween as they are stuffing their faces with candy have them grab a Dr.Pepper TEN BBQ Chicken Witch’s Finger and you know they at least got some protein with all that sugar.
Dr.Pepper TEN BBQ Chicken Witch’s Fingers
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can Dr Pepper TEN (12 oz)
- 1 bottle BBQ sauce (approx 19 oz)
- 2 packages crescent rolls
- Pastry horns
Add the chicken breasts, BBQ sauce and Dr Pepper TEN to the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours.
Lay out the crescent rolls and cut them into thin strips. Coat the pastry horn in cooking spray then wrap 1-2 strips on the pastry horn. Cook at 375 on an ungreased cookie sheet for 4-6 minutes (depending on how big you made them). Once cooled slide off of pastry horn.
Fill the crescent roll with shredded chicken. Use a food pen to draw on a fingernail. Serve and enjoy!
Your little trick or treaters will need something to wash down their witch’s fingers so why not serve them Halloween Eyeball Punch made with Canada Dry TEN so less calories and less guilt. This punch is super simple and always a crowd pleaser for both kids and adults.
Halloween Eyeball Punch:
- 2 2 liter bottles of Canada Dry TEN
- 2 cans of fruit punch frozen juice concentrate
Mix it all together and add the grapes last, the grapes fizz and are lots of fun for the kids plus they look like little eyeballs floating around in the punch.
In case you are unfamiliar with the collection of TEN pops there are several versions and you can find them at your local Kroger or other grocery store with all the other soda. Available in Canada Dry TEN, Dr Pepper TEN, 7Up TEN, A&W TEN, Sunkist TEN these are the perfect low calorie treat so you can swap out the regular version and people won’t even notice but they will appreciate less calories on a day filled with treats!
