    Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    1 witch (1-1/2 to 3 cups dip)


  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 3 egg whites
  • Black, green and red paste food coloring
  • 1 sliced almond
  • 1 pimiento-stuffed olive slice
  • 1 raisin
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 to 2 jars (15-1/2 ounces each) salsa con queso dip
  • Tortilla chips


  • Let dough rise according to package directions. For witch's face, on a lightly floured surface, roll one loaf into an 8-in.-high x 6-in.-wide oval. Cut a 3-in. piece off the top and set aside. Place rolled piece on a large greased baking sheet. Pull lower left side of dough down and to the left, forming a chin.
  • For hat, roll remaining loaf into a 9-1/2-in.-high x 6-1/2-in.-wide triangle; place above face. Divide reserved dough into thirds. Roll two pieces into 12-in.-long ropes; twist together. Place over bottom of hat for brim.
  • Shape two-thirds of remaining dough into a nose. Cut a 1-in. slit at an angle 1 in. below brim; insert nose. Roll remaining dough into a 4-in. piece; fold in half for lips. Cut a 2-in. slit below nose; insert lips.
  • Divide egg whites among three custard cups; with food coloring, tint one portion black, one green and one red. Brush black over hat. Brush green over face and nose. Brush red over lips.
  • For eye, place almond and olive between nose and brim. For wart, lightly press raisin into nose. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over dough for hair.
  • Let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
  • Hollow out center of hat; fill with dip, adding more as needed. Serve with tortilla chips.
