    You should make candy corn pizza!!!

    "Cheesy Candy Corn"

    Preheat the oven to 350.

    Cut the tortillas up like a pizza. Mozzarella goes on the tip, then cheddar in the middle, and the american on the top. Take a slice of the american cheese and cutting it into four equal parts horizontally. Helps it melt more uniformly.

    Place it in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted..

    Meatball creepy Crawlers

    Meatballs

    1 can (12 oz) Pillsbury® Golden Layers® refrigerated flaky original biscuits

    20 frozen cooked beef meatballs, thawed (from 16-oz bag)

    1/4 cup shoestring potatoes (from 1 3/4-oz can) or chow mein noodles

    Sliced olives, pickles and carrots, as desired

    Dips, if desired

    1/4 cup ketchup

    1/4 cup mustard

    1/2 cup cheese dip

    1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray, or cover with cooking parchment paper.

    2. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Wrap 1 biscuit piece around each meatball; seal. To make 1 crawler, line up 10 biscuit-wrapped meatballs on cookie sheet, making sure each is touching, to make a curved line. Poke shoestring potatoes in both sides of each ball for legs, at head for antennae and tongue, and end for tail. Repeat with remaining 10 wrapped meatballs to make second crawler.

    3. Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with olives for eyes and mouth. Top every other section with layer of sliced pickle, carrot and olive. In small bowl, mix ketchup and mustard. Serve crawlers with ketchup mixture and cheese dip.

    Day Old Bath Water

    12 ounce Can frozen lemonade

    2 liters 7-Up

    1/2 gallon Rainbow sherbert

    Thaw sherbert for approximately 15 minutes and place in a plastic tub. Add lemonade (prepared according to directions) and 7-up. Sherbert will melt and turn mixture day old bathwater grayish-brown. Float a handful of green, yellow and white tiny after dinner mints (tiny bars of soap) on top of the scummy punch.

    Boogers on a Stick

    8 ounce Jar cheez whiz

    3 or 4 drops Green food coloring (OR use red & make blood on a stick..)

    3 dozen pretzel sticks

    Melt cheeze whiz in the microwave according to jar directions. Allow the cheese to cool slightly in the jar. Carefully stir in food coloring using just enough to turn the cheese a pale 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 a boogerish size, set pretzels boogerd on wax paper to cool.

    Zombie Eyes

    Thinly Sliced Ham

    A combination of any of these would be great. And the best part is most of this can be made 2-3 days ahead of time so you have more time to concentrate on other things for the party.

    wow, you've gotten lots of good ideas from other answers, but here are a few more ideas:

    Witch Hat Cookies – Use a package of Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies and Hershey kisses to create these cute cookies. Turn the cookie over so the chocolate side faces up. Unwrap the kisses and dab a bit of frosting on the bottoms before placing them in the center of each cookie, covering up the hole. Sometimes I write "Boo" on the brim of a few cookies using leftover frosting. That’s it! These are a hit with the kids year after year.

    Spider Cupcakes - Frost in orange or green icing, then place one gumdrop in the center and add eight legs cut from black licorice string.

    Mummy Hot Dogs - Use regular hot dogs and a roll of crescent rolls. Unroll the crescent rolls into rectangles and press the seams together. Then cut each rectangle of dough into long strips. Wrap the strips around each hot dog to look like a mummy, but leave an open spot at the top. Then bake the hot dog mummies in the oven. Put two drops of mustard in the open area as two eyes.

    Brains for Dinner - Serve spaghetti in a hollowed out red pepper, with some of the spaghetti spilling over the edges.

    Witch's Hair with Goblin Eyeballs Salad - Mix together finely shredded carrots (the witch's hair) and peeled green grapes (the goblin eyeballs) with a small amount of your child's favorite salad dressing.

    Slime Balls - Caramel apples

    Monster Munch - Combine candy corn, dried cranberries and Chex cereal party mix.

    My mum always used to send things in to my school (when I was much younger!) for Halloween. I think the best thing is normal 'dressed up' as scary food so we used to have: Cat's eyeballs: Pickled onions Witches finger: Hot dogs Giant's toe nails: Crisps Witches broomsticks: Chocolate fingers Blood soup: Tomato soup You could also decorate pizza's (any bought cheese and tomato base) with various toppings to make them look like monsters: for example Pepper slices for eyebrows and angry mouth, pepperoni for eyes, and pineapple for a nose. You could also get your children to help with this! (if you have time!) You could do Halloween Horror Jelly - just jelly with Haribo Horror sweets in. (This may not be the best idea for being out of the fridge though!) Also a quick topping for icing the cupcakes that everyone is mentioning which is easy and quicker than the fiddly piping icing etc. Colour some butter icing or normal icing sugar green with a few drops of colouring and then place fizzy jelly snakes on top. They look really affective are relatively quick and taste jummy. Most supermarkets have these in their cheap sweets section! Hope you have fun!

    There are loads of halloween recipes here: http://familyfun.go.com/halloween/halloween-recipe... There are both sweet and savoury snacks, like cheese fingers, edible eyeballs and worms on a bun (like hotdogs) etc.

    People tend to get hungry when they're drunk, so make sure there's lots of food available. They'll probably be happy with snack foods, and lots of junk food - pizza would be perfect (there's a recipe here for pizza mummies if you want to keep it halloween themed: http://familyfun.go.com/halloween/halloween-recipe... You could also consider getting some snacks which aren't halloween themed - just general snack food like pretzels, popcorn, peanuts, nachos, chips and dip etc - people often like to snack on them when they're drunk.

    You need some filling food so they won't drive drunk. Maybe they can stay overnight or have a designated driver? Chili, stew, and plechunda recipes below.
