Gross but Good

Easy Peasy: Rice Krispie Treats rolled in melted milk chocalate. Stuck in candy corns. Arranged on a new and clean child's tolit. Gross, I know, but the treats were good and eaten once I got someone to start trying them.

My favorite was the eyeballs we did. My mom made then so I am not sure how she did them, but I know it was penutbutter balls, dipped in chocolate, then a white choloate mini kisses (not sure if that is what it is called, but like the hershey kisses, just very small), turned upside down and pushed into the penutbutter. then a little blue food coloring for the pupil. Not sure what she used for the veins, I guess some kind of strawberry jelly or something. top left of the picture

I usually make "Ghosts in the Graveyard" pudding dessert, which I believe I got out of a Kraft Halloween recipe booklet. I'm sure you've all heard of it, but just in case:

Freeze a tub of whipped cream before you plan to begin.

Make instant chocolate pudding according to directions (2 pkgs if I recall? sorry, I can't find the recipe booklet), and spoon it into a square or rectangle dish.

Crush Oreos in a baggie (I'm sure there was a number to use, I never used as many as they said to), enough to cover the pudding as "dirt". The chocolate creme Oreos work best, if you don't want "snow" (white creme) in your "dirt".

Prop up graham crackers or other cookies to make tombstones with, write on them with food gel if desired

Spoon out "ghosts" using the frozen whipped cream to place around cemetery, add eyes with food gel if desired

Place mellowcreme pumpkins around cemetery, keep refrigerated before/after serving, of course.

I guess I don't have any existing pix of this, but it's cute and delicious! (OK, so I did a quick search for a photo online, and it includes the actual recipe if you need numbers ;) http://www.backofthebox.com/recipes/desserts/ghosts-in-the-graveyard-g.html)

This year, I'd like to make this: http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-Graveyard-Brownies/ ...but I think it might work better if the bottom pan were dark metal rather than glass? It just seems like it would make a brighter glow, although I guess it might be difficult to find a metal pan that your glass pan could fit into.

A very simple hors doeuvre:
slice in half and pit large dates;
stuff with whipped cream cheese;
break up a shredded wheat cake into strands
arrange stuffed dates on a plate (stuffed side up) and add two strands of shredded wheat to each for antennae.

I called this pus stuffed cockroaches on the half shell. Unfortunately my wife forbid me to serve them at our party as it turned out one guest had a bug phobia. Maybe it was fortunate - I got them all to myself afterwards and they really are good. I've been banned from the kitchen prior to a party ever since then.
I am SOOOOO stealing this idea! I wonder how it would taste if I mixed in bacon bits to the cream cheese. You know, for that delightful buggy "crunch".

Re the graveyard pudding dessert described by LairMistress (8-26-2010), this is a hit in my home as well. My favorite thing about it is the Oreo dirt--it always looks great.

I like adding a fence, either with Keebler Fudge Sticks (choc-covered wafers; regular choc wafers get soggy, but the choc-covered ones stand up well) or chocolate licorice twists.

Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies are a good shape for headstones.

Also, because I never could get the hang of making whipped-topping ghosts that keep their shape, I've started using Marshmallow Peeps Ghosts. (I think I put them on a toothpick to help them stand up.)

That brownie version is a great idea--I love the graves!!! Very cool. Maybe I'll try a combination of the two (use the brownie but incorporate the dirt).

We found a really great web site for Halloween recipes - I hope to have time to make them all. Check out this link:

http://www.myscienceproject.org/halloween.htmlhttp://www.myscienceproject.org/halloween.html

This is one gives us the secrect to getting our recipe to glow under a black light...

Tonic Water - The Secret to Ghostly Glowing Jell-O Shots
Jell-O that glows under black light. What's the trick? Tonic water. The quinine is luminescent under ultraviolet light. Jell-O made with tonic water will light up eerily. We found that Berry Blue is one of the best colors to show off that ectoplasmic glow. You'll get a brighter light if you make your Jell-O with tonic water as the only liquid (boiling half, and adding half cold), but it won't taste that good. Plus, you want some booze in there. We found that some Malibu takes the edge off the quinine's bitterness and works well with the berry flavor. Make regular Jell-O shots, or use a mold to make a glowing brain. Glowing Jell-O also looks good in other props, like syringes and petri dishes.
