Halloween Recipes: What’s on Your Halloween Table?
Author: Ronda Luve


Planning a Halloween boo-ffet? There is nothing more fun to have on hand than traditional Halloween recipes. It’s great to watch party goers devour homemade Halloween treats such as brains, eyeballs, and toes. It not only makes the party exciting, but it makes it memorable as well.


Here’s one of my favorite Halloween recipes – Yummy Brains.



Yummy Brains

What you’ll need:

2 3 oz. packages Berry Blue flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 16 oz. package frozen mixed berries
1 cup crushed pineapple, with juice
1 teaspoon black gel food coloring
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks
2 brain molds (try WalMart)

Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water, stirring until no sugar crystals appear.

Place the berries in a food processor and pulse until the berries are very fine. Stir in the pineapple and mix with the gelatin. Stir in the black food coloring and place in the refrigerator (or the freezer if you’re in a hurry) until syrupy and beginning to set. Fold in the whipped cream. Spray the inside of the mold or bowl with non-stick spray and pour the gelatin mixture into the molds. Refrigerate 3-4 hours until set.

To unmold, place the molds in a bowl of hot water; let sit a minute or two, then place a plate on top of the mold and invert. The brains will fall onto the plate and will be ready to serve. MMMM!



Deviled Eggs

Since brains are no fun alone, how about trying out some deviled eyeballs? Basically, these are deviled eggs with a green or black olive in the middle. In the event you do not know how to make deviled eggs, here’s what you’ll need:

12 eggs, hard-cooked, cooled and peeled
24 green or black olives stuffed with pimientos
Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
Red food coloring
Tabasco (optional)

Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in medium bowl. Use a pastry cutter to mash yolks well. Add Mustard and Miracle Whip in a 2-1 ratio to create a paste. Add drops of Tabasco to your heat comfort level, then a few more. Fill egg white halves with yolk mixture, rounding and smoothing the top of each.

Push a whole pimiento-stuffed green or black olive into the center of each yolk well, stuffed side up. Use a toothpick dipped into red food coloring to draw tiny wiggly red lines on whites, to simulate capillaries. You now have some eyeballs ready to eat!



Monster Toes

Another of my favorite traditional Halloween recipes is Monster Toes.
This Halloween recipe should cover your table from head to toe.

You’ll first need cocktail wieners. Cut a wedge into the end of each wiener to make a place for the toenail. Cut flour tortillas into 4 inch long by 3/4 inch wide strips. Roll each wiener into a tortilla strip. Secure with a toothpick and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 7 minutes. After removing from oven, fill the toenail with ketchup and serve. Ewww, but yummy – all at the same time!

Halloween recipes are fun to make and even more fun to eat. There are a lot of creative ways to make traditional Halloween recipes – just use your imagination and then enjoy watching your guests eat their scary treats!

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 1/4 – 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 1/4 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.

These are just a few easy Halloween recipes for your party. Don’t forget to put out a few creepy spiders, black cats, etc. to for the party to give your party that fun spooky feeling.

Creepy Halloween Recipes to Make With Your Kids
By Barbara Feldman


For something fun to do with your kids this Halloween, consider these edible Halloween crafts. Not only will you have fun in the kitchen putting them together, but your taste testers will certainly give these scary treats a thumbs up!


Cup o’ Worms
This treat looks yucky but tastes great. You will finish with an edible cup of worms in real-looking “soil.” This is a great party treat you can make with your child.

You will need:
Packaged chocolate pudding
Gummy worms
Cocoa powder (or hot chocolate mix)
Chocolate sprinkles (also called chocolate Jimmies) – optional
Clear plastic cups

Make chocolate pudding and cool it in the refrigerator for a few hours. Put the individual portions into clear plastic cups. Let the top of the pudding remain rough looking. Sieve some cocoa powder on the top of each cup. Also add some chocolate sprinkles if desired. Place a few gummy worms in each cup to look like they are coming up through the pudding “dirt”. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Cup o’ Fish
While this may not be a scary dessert, kids will be fascinated by it. You will simply be making an edible aquarium in a cup. This is a great party treat you can make with your child, and tell your guests they are “real fish!”

You will need:
Blue Jell-O
Gummy fish (or fruit-flavored sharks)
Clear plastic cups

Make the blue Jell-O according to the directions on the box. Pour into the clear plastic cups. Let it cool in the refrigerator until partially set it, which will take about an hour. When the cups are partially set, place a few gummy fish in each one. Put them back in the refrigerator until they’re completely set. Eat and enjoy!

Variations include:

For Frozen Fish-Popsicles, freeze the Jell-O in Popsicle molds and add the gummy fish when they are partially set. Be sure to un-mold very gently when entirely frozen. These are really messy to eat and are best eaten outside. Or try an entire Punch Bowl of Fish Jell-O, which is made like the Cup o’ Fish, but in a large, clear punch bowl.


Brain Cell Delight

This is a gross-out treat that older kids will love to make!

You will need:
1 (6oz) blueberry Jell-O mix
1 carton (16oz) small curd cottage cheese
1 can (16 1/2oz) can blueberries in syrup

Prepare Jell-O according to package directions. Chill until firm. Scoop cottage cheese into a bowl. Drain and set aside the syrup from the blueberries. Add the berries to the cottage cheese and mix well. Add food coloring to turn the cottage cheese a nice grayish color when blended. To serve put a couple of spoonfuls of Jell-O (congealed brain fluid) on a plate, some of the syrup on that, and a scoop of the cottage cheese & blueberry mix (brain matter) on top. Serves six.


Creepy Witches Fingers

You will need:
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Icing sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp Vanilla
2 2/3 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Almonds, whole blanched
1 Tube red decorator gel (optional)

In bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Working with one quarter of the dough at a time and keeping remainder refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonful of dough into finger shape for each cookie. Press almond firmly into one end for nail. Squeeze in center to create knuckle shape. Using paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle. Place on lightly greased baking sheets; bake in 325F oven for 20-25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond, squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back in place, so gel oozes out from underneath. You can also make slashes in the finger and fill them with red gel blood. Remove from baking sheets and let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough. Recipe makes five dozen cookies.

Halloween Recipes are the Best! What to Do with All that Leftover Halloween Candy

Author: Nina Hoffman


Halloween is one of those holidays that has its own special brand of fun, not the least of which is trick-or-treating. My son will turn 3 a month before the holiday, and he is at the point where he really gets what trick-or-treating is and is very excited about it, even though we don’t let him eat much candy. I think half the fun for him is dressing up and parading around the neighborhood – he’s going to be Tigger this year – and visiting with everyone. He is a very social little guy. I remember last year, we ended up with tons of candy, and he probably got to eat one or two things (who gives a 2-year-old hard candy or Tootsie Rolls?!). This year, at least I know what we can do with some of that extra candy: Make this recipe for Halloween candy cake! It looks delicious, like so many of these fun Halloween recipes.

  7. Top with second cake layer, cut side down.
  8. Continue layering with remaining filling, peanut butter cups and cake, ending with cake, cut side down.
