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.

  6. 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!

  17. 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.

  27. Am Here To Give My Testimony About A Doctor Who Helped Me In My Life. I Was Infected With HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS In 2019, I Went To Many Hospitals For Cure But There Was No Solution, So I Was Thinking How Can I Get A Solution Out So That My Body Can Be Okay. One Day I Was In The River Side Thinking Where I Can Go To Get Solution. So A Lady Walked To Me Telling Me Why Am I So Sad And I Open Up All To Her Telling Her My Problem, She Told Me That She Can Help Me Out, She Introduce Me To A Doctor Who Uses Herbal Medication To Cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS And Gave Me His Email, So I Mail Him. He Told Me All The Things I Need To Do And Also Give Me Instructions To Take, Which I Followed Properly. Before I Knew What Is Happening After Two Weeks The HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS That Was In My Body Got Vanished . So If You Are Also Heart Broken And Also Need A Help, You Can Also contact Him Through Dr. Oyagu reach him oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322

I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR.Oyagu website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, i search and i saw a great posts by Sarah devise Martha, Mignon Wright and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR.Oyagu so that was when i contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which i takes for some couples of days, and i take it as he says before i am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR.Oyagu for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it.
