Instead of cooking this week, I decided it would be way more fun (for me at least) to show you all multitudes of hilarious Halloween food recipes.
Some of these are cute. Some are pretty nasty looking. Some are funny. Enjoy.
Wrap crescent rolls around hot dogs and bake in the oven. Use mustard and ketchup to draw faces or clothing items on the little guys.
Horrific cheese fingers
Cut string cheese into the general shape of fingers, including the knuckle wrinkles. Use cream cheese to attach almond slivers as finger nails.
Glow-in-the-dark drinks and Jell-O shapes
Little known fact: tonic water will glow in the dark in front of black lights. Use this to impress your friends (easy mixer, anyone?) with drinks and Jell-O shapes, like the starts in the picture.
Speaking of drinks, what Halloween event would be complete without some spiced cider? And while you’re at it, why not make it spiked?
Apparently this technique (like latte art) is not difficult to master. I have been serving soup wrong for the entire month of October.
Gross! Use toppings such as caramel or strawberry to create veins and dots of icing or little candies to give the impression of an iris.
Candy corn and red icing are all you need to make some True Blood worthy deserts. You can even use store bought cookies — or any kind you fancy making that night.
Rice krispie creations
Rice Krispie treats can be dyed any color and molded into any shape to create cute Halloween characters. Don’t stop at pumpkins; make ghosts, ghouls, witch hats, zombie, Frankenstein or spiders.
These spiders are a little more complex of a recipe, but they sound as delicious as they are creepy.
