Heat the little sausages as package directs. Open tube of bread sticks, separate dough and tie ends in a knot to look like bones; can also make snake shapes;bake as directed. Cut colored bread into cubes for dipping. (If unable to get the colored bread, any kind can be used.)

While the "dippers" are heating, prepare the cheese fondue. In a large saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour, salt,and mustard;stir until smooth. Slowly,add the cream and wine. Cook, stirring constantly until smooth. Reduce heat; add cheese and cream cheese, stirring well. Remove from heat and stir until cheese is melted.

Transfer to a fondue pot or small slow cooker. Place the dipping foods around the pot on a Halloween platter. Set out fondue forks or party toothpicks for dipping.

Helpful Tips:

Label the dippers with names of body parts or Halloween ideas, if you wish. Meatballs--eyeballs/chicken--fingers/sausages--monster toes/corn dogs--mummies or cocoons/bread sticks--bones/black tostitos--bats. There are many other great ideas to use as dipping foods. These were the ones my grandchildren and I came up with when they spent the night with me.
