A great recipe for Halloween parties (as an appetizer) or for kids ready to rush out quickly on Halloween, this spooky bread is anything but a fright.

Preheat the oven according to garlic bread package directions.
Open the frozen loaf and place the open side up on a baking sheet. Slice each loaf in half.
Bake bread according to package directions.
While bread is baking, slice cheese sticks into thin strips, about 1/8" thick and of varying sizes. Set cheese aside.
Once the bread is done baking, add cheese in a mummy like pattern on each loaf of bread, making sure to make space for the eyes.
Return to the oven and broil for 2-4 minutes on high, carefully watching that cheese doesn't burn.
Remove from oven, top with olive eyes, and serve Halloween Bread immediately.
I ended up cutting my garlic bread in half and made 4 mummies. You need 2 cheese sticks per the half-size bread.
Expert Tip on Broiling and Browning
If you want to broil the cheese and have it brown evenly, you need your bread to be even on the pan, which wasn't the case with mine. I had to ball up some tin foil to prop it up and be level in the oven. Frozen bread isn't in the most perfect shape.
