This is an easy recipe. You will need a can of tomato soup and a
pack of musksticks. First, cook the soup in a pan over a stove.
Then break up the musk sticks and put them into the soup to create...blood
soup with delicious fingers!
This is a shortbread type cookie that look like fingers.The dough
is piped (use a bag without any tip to get a finger sized cylinder)
onto the cookie sheet. Then using the dull side of a butter knife
make lines suggesting knuckle and wrinkles, and add an almond for
the fingernail. I found the unblanched variety look particularly
creepy. You can add a bit of red icing (ie.that translucent yuk
that comes in a tube) if you want a bloody finger. I have experimented
with this idea and found it better to make an impression with the
almond rather then bake them and "glue" the almonds to
the finger afterwards with the "blood". This gives a new
twist to the term "finger foods".
You color a icebox type dough a sickening purplish/gray shade and
then push the dough through a colander to make extruded spaghetti
shapes.Then you loosely pat spoonfuls of the dough into brain shapes
(well at least most kids' notions of how a brain is shaped). I think
I experimented with different kitchen tools with this one and ended
up using one of those collapsable steamer things to make the spaghetti.
French Fried Eye Balls

Spread relish over and enjoy!
Bugs in dirt sandwiches
For this you will need white bread, a pack of mixed bug shaped lollies
and milo. First, spread your slices of bread with margerine or butter.
Then, sprinkle the buttered slices with milo until completely coated.
Carefully stick the bugs firmly into the milo and place remaining
slice of bread on top. Voila! you have bugs in dirt sandwhiches!
This recipe is a nice treat. First, you will need icing sugar, rectangular
biscuites and a toothpick. Take your icing sugar and mix it with
hot water until fairly runny. Dip each of your biscuits into the
mixture and place onto a foiled tray. Take your toothpick and carve
"R.I.P" out of the icing on every biscuit. Place in fridge
for a few hours and presto! Your very own mini tombstones!
Brain Cell Salad
1 (6-ounce) package blueberry gelatin dessert mix
1 (16-ounce) container small-curd cottage cheese
1 (16 1/2-ounce) can blueberries in syrup (or 3/4 cup frozen blueberries,
blue food coloring
Prepare gelatin according to the directions on the package. Chill
for four to five hours, or until firm.
Scoop cottage cheese into bowl. Drain and set aside the syrup from
the blueberries. Add the berries to
the cottage cheese and mix well. Add three drops food coloring to
turn the cottage cheese a nice qrayish color when blended. To serve
salad, place a few spoonfuls of firm gelatin (congealed brain fluids)
onto individual plates. Top with a scoop of cottage cheese (brain
tissue) mixture and serve.
Crusty Booger Balls
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
5 1/3 cups flaked coconut (about 14 ounces)
1 large 8-ounce package lime-flavored gelatin
1 cup ground, blanched almonds
1 teaspoon almond extract
In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut, 1/3
cup of the unprepared gelatin, almonds, and almond extract. Mix
well with a large mixing spoon or rubber spatula. Cover bowl with
platic wrap and chill for about an hour or until mixture is firm
enough to mold in your hands. Scoop by 1/2 teaspoonfuls and shape
into various-sized booger balls. Place them on a baking sheet, lined
with a sheet of waxed paper. Make sure they are all slightly different,
just as each and every booger iwsunique and special. Place a second
sheet of waxed paper on your work surface and pour remaining unprepared
lime gelatin on the center of the waxed paper. Roll each ball in
gelatin to coat well and create a thin outer layer. Then place back
on the baking sheet. Return boogers to the refrigerator for and
hour before seving, and store any extras in the refrigerator.
Bake 2 cakes in Bundt pans. Place the 2 cakes together bottom to
bottom. Frost with orange frosting made from food colouring. The
pumpkin face is pieces of a Hershey Chocolate Bar cut into triangles,
etc for eyes, nose, etc. And finally set a chocolate frosted cupcake
at the top as the stem.
Note: This ends up being a whole lot of cake.
Another Eyeball Dish!
Buy a can of lychee fruits and simply stuff the little devils with
grapes (try mixing red and green grapes). Serve in a hollowed out
gourd. Serve this down with Vampire blood. Any red-coloured drink
will do. Simply serve it in small pumpkin-type gourds that have
been cleaned out. Use black liquorice for straws, and start sucking.
Frog's Eye Salad
1 cup Acini De Pepe
2 cups mandarin oranges
1 cup pineapple tidbits
1 1/2 cups marshmallows
3 egg yolks
3 Tbsp. flour
1 cup sugar
1 reg. size Cool Whip
Boil Acini De Pepe in salted water til tender, but not soft (about
10 minutes) and drain. Drain fruit. Thicken fruit juice, egg yolks,
flour and sugar. Add drained Acini De Pepe while dressing is still
hot, then let the whole mixture cool. When cooled, fold in marshmallows,
fruit, and Cool Whip. Chill.
Crush a full bag of Oreo cookies and spread some in the bottom of
the pan. Reserve the other half for the top. Next mix chocolate
pudding and coolwhip, and spread over the crust. Spread the remaining
the tombstones, oval cookies are best, you can even pipe on saying
with icing (R.I.P. etc) I have some bats on sticks that I stick
down in the cookie tombstones (if they are sandwich cookies). Just
use your imagination to decorate your
graveyard. Enjoy this ghoulish treat. Happy Haunting!
Kitty Litter Cake
1 pkg. spice cake mix
1 pkg. white cake mix
1 pkg. white sandwich cookies
green food coloring
12 small tootsie rolls
1 pkg. vanilla pudding mix
1 new kitty litter box
1 new pooper scooper
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions. Prepare pudding
mix and chill until ready to assemble. Crumble white sandwich cookies
in small batches in blender. They tend to stick, so scrape often.
Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add
a few drops green food
coloring and mix using a fork. When cakes are cooled to room temperature,
crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining cookie crumbs
and the chilled pudding. Gently combine. Line new, clean kitty litter
box. Put mixture into litter box. Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls
in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape
ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with
3 more Tootsie rolls and bury in mixture. Sprinkle the other half
of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly
over the top, this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty
litter. Heat remaining Tootsie rolls, 3 at a time, in the microwave
until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle
with cookie crumbs. Serve with a new pooper scooper. This does take
a bit of time. My friend made it for an adult's Halloween party,
I swear you can't tell it from the real thing if you follow the
directions carefully. Serves 24
Cut the crusts off of some slices of white bread. Spread peanut
butter and jam on the bread. Roll the sandwiches up. Ta da! You
have bones with blood and marrow for dinner!

Gory Hand - Presentation is everything.
This is both a yummy treat and a great decoration to scare your
friends. Use a clean rubber glove. Make a strong cherry or other
red jello by using 3/4 of the recommended amount of water. Hang
the glove over the sink by using clothes pins attached to thin strips
of wood. When the jello has cooled pour into glove and place in
the deep freeze. Be careful not to have the hand pressing against
anything or it will ruin the shape. When the jello is frozen cut
the glove off using small scissors. Keep your masterpiece in the
fridge until ready to display.
alternate Gory Hand tip:
Take a clean rubber glove and fill it with water, tie it and put
it in the deep freeze. Keep it in there until your party. When you're
ready take it out of the glove and put it in the punchbowl instead

WITCH'S CAULDRON OF WHAAP
Get one of those plastic witch's cauldrons from your nearest Halloween
supply store usually available at large retail outlets around Halloween.
Wash it out real good. Purchase some frozen lemonade, lime-lemonade,
and whatever other flavor you want to use as your base taste. Then
proceed to add a couple liters of lemon-lime tasting soda such as
7-UP, Sprite, Squirt or even Ginger Ale. Add a whole bunch of cut-up
fruit: watermelon, strawberries, musk melon, cantaloupe, oranges,
and of course your favorite style of grapes (they make good eyeballs).
To darken the mixture you may want to add a couple of packages of
grape or blackberry Kool-Aid®. For added effect you can purchase
some plastic bones, eyeballs, bats, spiders or whatever else you
can find. Lastly you will want to add dry ice for the boiling effect
and to have "steam" rolling over the edges.
