Three Fun and Easy Halloween Recipes
By Karen L. Talavera
Halloween is a favorite holiday for the young and old alike. Kids love Halloween because they get to wear costumes and go out trick or treating. But being out and about can be dangerous. To keep children safe, many parents these days are deciding to throw a Halloween party for them instead of taking them out trick or treating. Or if, like me, you still like to take the kids trick or treating, you can always have a Halloween party for adults-- it's a great way for grown ups to get a chance to act like kids again.
Whether hosting an adult Halloween party or one for the kiddos, one of the most important things to think about is... the food! Below are some quick and easy Halloween recipes for your next party. Your kids will love them and most adults will too.
Halloween Cookie Pizza Recipe
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (Pillsbury)
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 Tub Vanilla cake frosting
1 Package Miniature Chocolate Chips
Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Cut the chocolate chip cookie dough into ¼ -inch-thick slices. Place the slices on the bottom of a 12 inch greased foil-lined pan. Using floured fingers, press slices to form the cookie dough pizza crust. Place crust in oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Once the cookie dough pizza crust has cooled, carefully remove foil from crust and place on serving platter. Spread peanut butter evenly over the crust and sprinkle candy corn and chocolate chips over the entire top. Drizzle ¼ cup of melted frosting over the cookie pizza. Cut into wedges and serve.
Black Jello Halloween Party Recipe
1 6 ounce package grape Jello
2 cups purple grape juice, chilled
1 cup water
1 small carrot, shredded
4 large marshmallows
1 16 ounces can unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
1 16 ounces can light peach slices, drained
2 cups green seedless grapes, washed
1 cup ice cubes
Instructions: While pineapple bits and peach slices are draining, dissolve Jello in 1 cup of boiling water. When the Jello is completely dissolved, add chilled grape juice and 1 cup of ice cubes. Stir until all ice cubes are dissolved. Add shredded carrot to the Jello. Cut the marshmallows into small pieces and add along with cut up peaches and pineapple tidbits. Leave grapes whole for eyeballs. Chill and then stir as it thickens to evenly distribute the fruit.
Blood Clot Punch Recipe for Halloween
1 2-liter bottle of Black Cherry soda
1 2-liter bottle of Fruit Punch soda
1 can frozen strawberries
1 bag of gummy worms
Instructions: Pour both bottles of soda into a punch bowl. Put the can of frozen strawberries in the soda to melt. Stir occasionally as the strawberries melt. Just before serving, stir in the bag of gummy worms. You can also fill a rubber glove with water and freeze. Before you place the bowl of punch on the table, remove the rubber glove and put the frozen hand in the punch bowl to keep it cold.
