Halloween? Already? Oy!
I always liked this recipe - it's a sweetish chili that lures the lovely children
::: cackle :::

Halloween Chili
Serving Size : 8
1-1/4 lbs goblin gizzards
1 eye of Cyclops
15 ounces soft-shelled beetles
28 ounces blood of bat
1/8 teaspoon pureed wasp
1/4 teaspoon common dried weed
1 dash red-tailed hawk toenails
2 teaspoons ground sumac blossom
1 teaspoon hemlock
1/2 cup fresh grubs
Stagnant pond water
Toppings: radioactive spider legs and liquefied ghost

Best made during the last phase of the moon, if that is not possible, just do the best you can in a softly lighted kitchen after dark. Brown the gizzards in an iron cauldron over a fire made from the siding off a haunted house, add chopped eye of Cyclops and simmer until the pieces of eye become translucent, add blood of bat, and soft-shelled beetles, bring to a slow bubbling boil. At this time, add the common weed, toenails, sumac, grubs, hemlock, and the pureed wasp. As it cooks, you may want to adjust the consistency with pond water.

Halloween Chili
Serving Size : 8
1-1/4 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion
15 ounces Black Beans or Kidney Beans
28 ounces V-8 juice
1/8 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1 dash crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 cup sliced celery
Tap water
Toppings: shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream

Brown the beef in a Dutch oven, add chopped onion and simmer until the onion become translucent, add V8, and drained beans, bring to a slow boil. At this time, add the mustard, oregano, pepper, chili powder, sugar, and celery. As it cooks, you may want to adjust the consistency with tap water.

Well. I don't know if it's cool but to have a healthy food alternative: oranges. Take a knife and cut into the peel of an orange and make a jack-o-lantern face. Just cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Make sure not to cut into the orange itself. Then make a small hole at the top and take a piece of pretzel and poke it into the top for the stem. If you have any trouble DM me and I will explain in more detail.

You might want to get some dry ice in a container on or nearby the table to create a spooky atmosphere.

cup butter, completely softened (Peanut butter eyeballs recipe)
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cups toasted rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
12 ounces of white chocolate
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Food coloring (two colors)
Combine the butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.

Mix on low speed until well combined. (If you have no mixer this can be done by hand).

Then mix in the toasted rice cereal.

Using your hands, form into -ounce balls (the size of a large marble) and refrigerate until firm (about one hour).

Place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt, adding vegetable oil part-way through.

After all chocolate is melted, stir until smooth.

Dip the balls, one at a time into the melted white chocolate mix, using a fork to roll them around so they are entirely coated then remove them from the chocolate and set on a waxed paper lined sheet pan.

Chill to set up about 30 minutes.

Separate remaining white chocolate into two bowls and add one to two drops of food coloring to each to tint each bowl a different color.

Reheat chocolate if necessary and, using a small spoon, place a dollop of the colored chocolate on the eyeball to make an iris.

Use a smaller drop of the contrasting color for the pupil.

Let the chocolate set, place balls in individual mini muffin papers and serve.

WITCHES HATS...no baking involved!!

1. Pkg. of Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies, the kind that are shortbread
with solid chocolate on the bottom and stripes on the top.

2. Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

3. Orange icing for decorating, put in decorating bag with plain
narrow tip. Or just get the ready made in a tube and use the small

To assemble, turn cookie upside down so the solid side is facing up
and pipe some icing around center. Set the Hershey Kiss on top --
now you've made the hat. Pipe icing around bottom edge of the Kiss
and leave like that or get fancier and do a bow on the hat brim. You
are done!

Halloween Spider Cake
When cake is cut, it spurts green goop.

18 1/4 oz box white cake mix
4-serving package green gelatin

Blue food coloring
Chocolate frosting

4 black licorice whips
2 big green gumballs
6 little gumballs

Prepare cake using two 9-inch round cake pans. Cool.
Prepare the gelatin according to package directions. It works best if
it is just a little on the soft side. On a foil-covered cookie-sheet,
place one cake layer for the body. Cut a smaller circle out of the
center of the layer.
Place this smaller round of cake as the spider's head. Fill the hole
left in the body layer with gelatin. Place the other cake layer on
top of the body and trim cake slightly to shape , if desired.

To prepare frosting, in a mixing bowl, add blue food coloring to the
chocolate frosting until black in color. Frost the entire cake black.
Cut the black licorice whips in half and insert for the eight legs.
Position the gumballs as eyes

This is almost too sickening to me to post, but klids would love the idea, and think its funny!

Boogers On A Stick

8 ounce jar Cheez Whiz
Green food coloring
25 To 30 pretzel sticks

Melt the cheeze whiz in the microwave or on top of the stove, according
to directions on the jar. Allow the cheese to cool slightly in the jar.
Using a long handled spoon, carefully stir about three drops of green food
coloring into the warm cheese, using just enough to turn the cheese a delicate snot green.

To form boogers: Dip and twist the tip of each prtezel stick into the cheese,
lift out, wait twenty seconds, then dip again. When cheese lumps reach an
appealingly boogerish size, set pretzels, booger down, onto a sheet of waxed paper.

Allow finished boogers on a stick to cool at room temperature for ten minutes or until cheese is firm.
Gently pull boogers off waxed paper and arrange on a serving platter. Serves 5 to 6 booger buddies.

Sicko Serving Suggestion: Place a bowl of chunky red salsa in the center of the platter so that guests can turn plain boogers into bloody ones.
