Love it or hate it, it's hard to deny Halloween is now an enthusiastically embraced celebration. Time to enjoy some ghoulish fun this year. Treat your family, friends, or even trick-or-treaters to these frightful treats.
Raspberry jello worms on a bed of chocolate doughnut crumbs. So simple.
Hot Dog Mummies
These are super easy to make. You basically just use a pizza cutter to slice biscuit dough and then wrap it around the hotdogs. Bake for 14 minutes at 375. Make the eyes with ketchup and mustard.
Stick plenty of spaghetti through the sausages and cook! This one is a hit with children.
Marshmallow and Peanut Butter Dirty Ear Wax Q-Tips
Stick mini marshmallows on a lollipop stick. Dip the ends into melted butterscotch chips to create the illusion of ear wax. Let dry and fill a mock giant Qtip box with multiple used Qtips for guests to enjoy.
Directions: Bake cakes according to directions. Make pudding and chill. Crumble cakes together, mix in half of the pudding with it. Crumble cookies in a processor. Add half of the cookie crumble to the cake mix. Put the cake mixture in the pan.
Spread the rest of the cookie crumbles on top. Microwave tootsie rolls on the lowest setting until soft. Twist into shape to look like cat poop and place on top of the cake.
Fill dates with cream cheese and ground nuts filling to make them look like stuffed cockroaches. Imagine biting into one of these suckers and having the white cheese ooooozing out!
Don't forget to post a sign and add in an added fun twist by calling them, e.g., "Stuffed Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.
Get your favorite cookie mix. Put it into your icing piper and make it into the shape of crap. Bake and serve!
Make your favorite punch for your adult guests and add some limbs from a few dolls. You can pick up dolls at the local dollar store.
Black Bat Wings
Marinade your chicken wings in your favorite marinade, then add black food coloring and bake as usual.
Bloody Intestine breadsticks
2 c. hot tap water 1 T yeast 2 T sugar Red or pink food colouring 1 T salt 4-5 c. flour canned cherry pie filling 2-3 T. melted butter cinnamon and sugar mixture (I do a 1 to 6 ratio)
Pour water into a bowl or mixer. Sprinkle yeast over the top and then sugar on top of the yeast. Let work for about 5 minutes. When bubbly, add food coloring to the red color.
Add 1 cup of flour and mix. Add salt and then enough flour to make a soft dough. Let rise. When risen, grease a 9×13 baking dish and spoon in cherry pie filling.
Halve the dough and roll out the dough into a rectangle. Cut into inch-wide strips. Take each strip and pinch ends together. Twist and place randomly over the pie filling. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake in the oven at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until the middle is set.
There is no recipe available for these, but Katherine, the creator said that she used red food coloring and a paintbrush for the fetal outlines and dyed icing for the jelly. I imagine that regular sugar cookies would work well as a base. But damn, these disgusting treats go a long way in showing us that any food can get nasty really quick with a little ingenuity.
This drink will get your guests all worked up and happy!
6 ounces of quality vodka (approx. 6 fingers of spirits. hehe.) 6 ounces of tomato juice 6 ounces of beet juice 3 fresh lemons, juice of 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 12 drops of Tobasco sauce 1 teaspoon celery salt 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish ice One slice of lemon, black salt, 2 celery stalks, 6-8 carrot fingers, eyeballs to float in the drink, and 8-12 short bamboo skewers.
Baby Brain Shooters
This awesome shooter features Bailey's in strawberry vodka with a small amount of bloody Grenadine to complete the gruesome look.
Hot Finger Chilli
Hot dog Halloween fingers in chili... Cut hot dogs in half, slice knuckles, and a thin slice off the front for nails. Broil or boil... But keep an eye on them... Then slice the white part of green onions and place as nails... Heat a crockpot of chili, and you're good to go.
Make your favorite guacamole, but you MUST make it really chunky. Carve your pumpkin and serve .uacamole like vomit coming out of its mouth.
Apple Vampire Teeth
These gooey snacks are made from apple slices, peanut butter, slivered almonds, and cranberries. They sort of look like a set of teeth that you'd find on the shelf of a vampire dentist.
Deviled eggs topped with creepy-crawly spiders made from black olives? Yes, please. These are the perfect Halloween appetizer to make at home or bring to a large party.
Dead Meat Hand
This is creepy. Made from a meatloaf covered in cheese sitting in a pool of mashed potatoes, this hand looks like it's on a mission to find the arm of the zombie it belongs to. All these needs are a little time and a creative hand!
Raw Meat Platter
Believe it or not, this raw meat platter is actually Rice Krispies Treats with red food coloring and some creative packaging.
Just follow the directions on your cereal box and add a few drops of food coloring when initially mixing the marshmallow and butter.
2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups water
1/2 cup liquid glucose/light corn syrup
few drops of black gel food coloring
6 Granny Smith apples
Grease a piece of baking paper and place it on a tray/baking sheet.
Insert bamboo skewers in all the apples and set them aside.
In a medium pot, combine the sugar, water, glucose/corn syrup, and food coloring and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture feels smooth when you rub it between your fingers.
When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and wash the pot's sides down with a pastry brush dipped into clean water to prevent crystals from forming.
Allow the caramel to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage (150°c/310°F on a candy thermometer).
Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place it on the baking paper to set and cool for approximately an hour before serving.
