Halloween Recipes: What's on Your Halloween
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 partygoers
devour homemade halloween treats such as brains, eyeballs, and
toes. It not only makes the party exciting, but it makes it memorable as
Here’s one of my favorite Halloween recipes – 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
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!
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
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!
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
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
