Creepy Party Foods

  • Gingerbread Skeleton Cookies – Take traditional gingerbread men cookies and ice them as skeletons.  The cookies are a great fall treat and the redesign a fun twist on a traditional holiday cookie.
  • Dracula Teeth – Purchase 1-1/2 cups of raw, whole pumpkin seeds.  Toss with 2 tsp melted butter and 1 pinch salt in a bowl. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 300F for approximately 45 minutes.  Turn occasionally.  Cool & enjoy.
  • Decorating witches cupcakes for HalloweenCreepy Eyes and Blood drops –  Peel green grapes so they have that “gooey” texture to them like eyeballs along with some fresh pomegranate seeds.
  • Witch’s Cakes – Red velvet cake with white frosting and red food gel for decoration.
  • Bowl o’ Scabs – Super simple but really gross.  Fill a bowl with dried cranberries and label it “BLOODY SCABS”
  • Hogwarts Butter Beer for a crowd (kids’ version) – Remove 1 cup of soda pop out of a 2-liter bottle of Cream Soda.  Add 1 cup Butterscotch Syrup or English Toffee Syrup (Torani’s is about $7.99 a bottle).  Recap the bottle and GENTLY swish to mix.
  • Hogwarts Butter Beer for one (alcohol-free) – 8oz ginger ale or cream soda plus 2-3 tablespoons of Butterscotch Syrup to taste.  Layers beautifully  in a clear class.  Butterscotch old-fashioned stick candy makes a great stir stick and decoration.  For an adult (alcohol) version, use Butterscotch Schnapps in place of Butterscotch syrup.
