Halloween Feast:9 Tricky-Treats

So I'm sure we're all sick of Star Wars posts.  All those posts got me thinking about other fun parties we've had in the past.   We've had variations of Halloween Parties a few times and since it's always all about the food with me, here are some of my favorites:
 Alien Eyeballs
A little food coloring and a sliced olive makes these deviled eggs a little more devilish.

 Swamp Scum
My Friend Monica, taught me that if you blend up Jell-O before it sets it looks like this.  I added some gummy worms for effect.
 Monster Q-Tips
I thought of these while watching Shrek-how gross is that?
 Just attach mini marshmallows to lolly-pop sticks and dip in peanut butter. This turned into our most scary treat, when a mom w/ a peanut allergy mistakenly thought it was caramel and  ate one.
 Mummy's toes
(recipe here)-the grossest (and my favorite) item on this spooky menu.  They look so real.


Witches Fingers
I discovered these on a magazine cover at the grocery store.
Add a little food coloring to your favorite bread stick dough.  Before baking add some grated Parmesan cheese for hair and an almond sliver for the fingernail.

 Magic Potion
Just add some cooked tapioca pearls to Kool-Aid and Sprite. you can even add some dry ice to make it look spooky.

Spider Web Ice Cream Cake 
(this is super easy, but makes you look like Martha Stewart)

1.Bake 2- 9 inch cake layers
2. Line 9 inch pan w/ wax paper.  Fill with 1/2 gallon of soften ice cream.  Freeze until firm.
3. Stack ice cream layer between cake layers.  Spread a layer of hot fudge or caramel between each layer.
4.  Mix a large container of Cool-Whip with a few spoonfulls of cocoa.  Spread all over cake.  Freeze until firm.
5. Draw a Spider web shap on wrond side of wax paper.  Pipe melted white chocolate on right side of wax paper.  Let harden.  Add to cake.


Frozen Eyeballs (recipe here) I used chocolate chips instead of black jelly beans


I'm linking up to these parties here and here.

  5. A great way of spooky-fying your punch is to get some disposable nurses gloves fill with water and freeze. Tada dismembered hand ice cubes to float in your punch bowl!

  16. Love your Halloween food. Last year I shared some similar cocktail weenies, I made two types and called them monster and diva fingers, I am sharing them again with some cookies this week. Your alien eyeballs I think are my favorite. Thanks for sharing at Bacon Time.
