This one is gluten free, and the recipe is from here. I had not made it before, but it was GOOD. It struck me that I could shape thee meatloaf like an Egyptian Mummy. It’s kind of horrifying how this started:

And for dessert? Dracula’s dentures! Simply stated, these are gluten free chocolate chip cookies, red vanilla frosting, mini marshmallows, and almond slivers. The recipe was inspired by this one from Nestle.
