Wickedly fabulous food is a must for Halloween. These recipes turn simple things we love to eat and drink into ghoulishly glam party hits.
Set the spooky-licious scene with a bubbling cauldron of Witches Brew. A large metal bowl of spicy apple cider and pomegranate juice is nestled in a cast iron Dutch oven holding crushed dry ice and water; guests dip into the foggy vat with a long-handled ladle for a drink.
Bite-size Hairy Eyeballs make gruesome starters: wrap sausage balls, with a floating pimiento-stuffed olive eyeball, in ramen noodles and bake. Moldy Guacamole is perfectly sinful for dipping Creepy Critters into: cut out tortillas into bats, witches, or ghosts and toast them into crispy chips. Kid-friendly Mini Mummies look just like they climbed out of the tomb: cover hot dogs in strips of prepared piecrust to summon the ancient spirits.
Scare up some cake for the unsavory course, and turn chocolate malt cupcakes with green-tinted frosting into Wicked Candy Bar Cupcake witches. Their hats are made of ice cream cones, cookies, and melted chocolate, and hair of black string licorice; cinnamon candies and candy corn decorate their faces. Ghoulish Eyes are popular cake balls, made by mixing baked red velvet cake mix and canned cream cheese frosting, rolling into balls, and coating them in white chocolate. Decorated with red-tinted white chocolate for blood vessel streaks and M&M candies for eyes, they are devilishly easy to make.
Halloween is one day of the year when tricksters of all ages look forward to a little friendly fright. Bedazzle and bedevil their taste buds in true creepy style, and create a bewitching event that’ll haunt them until the next time around.Read More From Holidays and Entertaining.
