Halloween Recipes

Ghoulishly gourmet ideas for Halloween!  The cool thing about these recipes is they can be adapted for gory, Doctor-themed parties as well.

Savory Nibbles

Spider-web 7-layer Dip

1 bag blue corn tortilla chips
Black Beans
Sour Cream
Layer all ingredients and "ice" the sour cream into a web design on top.  Add in a plastic spider for good measure.

Intestinal Pizza Bread
Make a long roll of dough (any puffy pizza dough will work, you can even stuff it with cheese or pepperoni). Line a pan with pizza sauce, place the roll of dough in the pan back and forth, the way intestines would look. Drizzle pizza sauce along the creases. Can also make as a dessert with puff pastry and plum jelly.

Sweet and Spooky

Witch/Zombie Fingers

Sugar cookie dough
Green food coloring
Whole almonds

Add a few drops of food coloring to cookie dough.  Roll dough into the size of a finger.  Use a knife to make small joint indentations.  Add an almond to the finger-tip and bake.  For more interesting special effects, add some red food gel around the nails.  Adapted from this recipe.

Pumpkin Rice Krispy Treats
Mold rice krispy treats in the shape of a pumpkin with a tootsie roll for a stem and some green frosting vines.

Zombie Eyeball Meatballs

Deathly Drinks

Glow-in-the-Dark Punch
Tonic Water + your favorite punch recipe
Tonic water with quinine glows under a black light.  You can freeze the tonic water into ice cube trays and add it into your favorite punch, or incorporate the tonic water into the recipe itself.  We used Homer Simpson ice cube trays and added them to a red punch for glow-in-the-dark shrunken head drinks.
