Made this for my daughter's grade 4 Hallowe'en party today, and they all disappeared. She came home with the EMPTY TRAY.

These are really cute and taste good, but you had better give yourself a lot of time. Maybe my time issue was because I used the little sausage links instead of cutting a big sausage into pieces. I thought the smaller pieces were easier to eat.
