There's tons of recipe sites to help but I assume you are looking for novel ideas. 
We have pot luck parties all the time.  My dish last year was blood spider rolls from that tube dough in the frig section but reshaped into spiders and a spoonful of strawberry jam put in the body prior to baking.  I served them on a pair of glass plates with that white spider webbing you can get by the bag for like 50 cents in between the plates so it looked like the spiders had a web.  They will "bleed" a bit during baking.  This year it's devil eggs which are a variety of deviled eggs but with little horns added to the filling part.  The horns are made from red peppers.

check out Ooey Gooey Banana Ghosts.  Even if you don't make them, the articles from this site are a trip to read.   Smiley

Hi there, I'm new around here *big time snooping-aroundish*  Wink

L O V E all you guys' ideas, you're a greatly inspiring bunch!!  Cool  Planning on creating some of my own cool stuff in the near future (recently school/work/thinking of school and work has consumed all my time - got no life it seems - blah!) and I'm hoping to get some earrings done by the end of this week...

To the point: Celebrating Halloween isn't that big where I live (Sweden that is), and I'm sorta kinda (totally) obsessed with the whole idea. In my search of cool Halloween stuff (to drool over and be jealous of) I stumbled across this site - Check it out for scary-food-inspiration, maybe a tad bit too complicated to make, but really impressing! http://www.theyrecoming.com/

Well, hoping to get serious on that DIY area of my life soon enough, thanks again for inspiring me!



/Jessica.

PS. Sorry for any spelling/grammar mistakes, but remember; I'm only Swedish!  Wink

there's old standbys like "finger" cookies and last year I made these really yummy candy mice!  I'll see if I can find the recipe......

My friend Jessica had a Halloween birthday party last year and had some awesome food ideas...
one of my favorites was to freeze kool-aid in a rubber gloves and put the frozen red hands in the punch. They kept it cold, provided a fruity flavor and looked creepy! She also dipped peanut butter cookies in white chocolate and drew little ghost faces on them. Hope that helps!

O_O  Remember to wash the gloves first.  Powder tastes ickky-poo.

You could do a variation on spider eggs. Hard boil a dozen eggs. Then roll gently to crack the shells. Then submerge them for a half an hour or so in soy sauce or beet juice and vinegar. Then peel and serve. The should have a spider-web looking pattern on them. Or if you peel them an leave in a jar of beet juice and vinegar for 24 hrs. you get bright red eggs - but the yolk stays yellow - then you could make blood red deviled eggs.

If it's going to be fairly dark at your party, a bowl full of frozen grapes feels like eyeballs!  It would probably work with cheries too.

Our newspaper did an article about Haloween food, and they showed a pretty accurate plate of "eyeballs" made of jello.  The link to the recipe is


http://www.britta.com/HW/HWr.html#eyeballs

There are some other creepy recipes there, too.  The eyeballs in the paper looked more smooth and perfect becuase they used the mold instead of a melon baller.

This website also has a link to the Penn and Teller "Play with your Food" stuff, which sounds interesting.
