I love Halloween. I love dressing up, decorating the house, carving the pumpkins, you name it.
Years ago I used to help throw an annaul Halloween party with my comic book geeky friends and we’d go all out. We’re talking fake bodies strewn about the house. Games like “Bobbing for Stuff” in a vat of Green Ecto Kool-Aid. And even a room with a tarot card reader. And yes, the house even came with its very own black cat. (Trust me, despite her tiny stature and name of Pee Wee, this feline was a certified spawn of Satan.)
But what I REALLY love about Halloween is the food. Yes, the candy’s great. (Mini Kit-Kats FTW!) But all the crazy, fun spooky-themed snacks and desserts are just delicious to look at and eat!
I just discovered a super funtastic site from Disney, because, you know, they can never have enough websites, right? It’s called Spoonful. com and it’s just a smorgasbord of DIY crafts and recipes. Here are a few of my favorites that I just may have to try this year on All Hallow’s Eve!
I sooo want Allie to make these forked eyeballs and pile them up in a big bowl. Can you imagine sitting around watching some horror movie while chomping away on these? Heck, add a jelly filling for extra grossness!
Let’s switch over to adorable cupcake mode. Considering I found out today that a coworker of mine once ate a fried tarantula (true story!), you’d think I’d steer clear of any kind of creepy crawly. Heck, no! These guys are just too adorable not to hug and cuddle and devour!
And let’s get back to grossing everyone out with… yes, the perfect Halloween dinner known as Rats Baked in Blood. Mmmm, mmm. Just like mommy used to make! And yeah, this recipe gets triple bonus points considering it’s on a website run by Disney! Uh, anyone know what Mickey thinks about this one? Heck where is that squeaky little guy…
And we’ll head right back to the ultimate in cuteness. I am always in awe of Bento Boxes. They’re true food art. And this Halloween-themed Bento is just too much fun not to share. That angry Frankenstein monster has given me a serious case of the giggles.
For loads more Halloween-themed snacks, meals and desserts, head on over to Spoonful.
