Did I hear someone say, “Part-ayyy”? Maybe that was my ghostly imagination. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. And why? Well, one reason is because it’s the best holiday to host a party during! Not just for kids, but for grown-ups too. The following are some recipes that will have you screaming for more.
1. Creepy, Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches
Just looking at these sandwiches from Parenting.com is enough to scare the living daylights out of anyone!
2. Brew-Ha-Ha Punch
If I didn’t know any better I would say that this concoction from Southern Living looks exactly like a potion that one would find in a real witch’s cauldron.
Let me focus
So that I can
Turn this boy
Into a locust!"
3. Meat Head
Who is that staring right back at me? Don’t tell me it’s my reflection! I’m not sure about you, but I think even I would feel a little uncomfortable eating this skull of Ruffles & Truffles knowing I’m being watched.
4. Vampire Sangria
This red drink by Kraft Foods looks bleedin' good.
5. Candy Corn
Have you ever wondered how to make candy corn? Well you’re in luck... because I have the recipe right here, courtesy of Alton Brown from the Food Network.
6. Mesclun Meanies
All that these Jack-o’-lanterns by All You need now is a light of some sort and they'll be good to go!
7. Poison Apple Gum Balls
For some reason these apples by Better Homes and Gardens remind me of the ones that the Queen, dressed as an old hag, gave to Snow White... anyone else?
8. Worms in Dirt (Hijiki Salad)
Now, I do hate bugs and can’t understand why people in some cultures eat them, but I would love to try some of these! This mixture of the Japanese seaweed “hijiki” with fried tofu in a sesame oil dressing by Food and Wine makes for a great salad.
9. Pickled Brains
Does eating brains make you smarter? If so then I think I would like to sample these "brains" featured on The Martha Stewart Show.
10. Halloween Tombstone Treats
Even my dog would want to bury his bones under these gravestones created by Food.com.
