    Blood soup

    This is an easy recipe. You will need a can of tomato soup and a pack of musksticks. First, cook the soup in a pan over a stove. Then break up the musk sticks and put them into the soup to create...blood soup with delicious fingers!

    Dead Fingers

    This is a shortbread type cookie that look like fingers.The dough is piped (use a bag without any tip to get a finger sized cylinder) onto the cookie sheet. Then using the dull side of a butter knife make lines suggesting knuckle and wrinkles, and add an almond for the fingernail. I found the unblanched variety look particularly creepy. You can add a bit of red icing (ie.that translucent yuk that comes in a tube) if you want a bloody finger. I have experimented with this idea and found it better to make an impression with the almond rather then bake them and "glue" the almonds to the finger afterwards with the "blood". This gives a new twist to the term "finger foods"

    Tombstoned biscuites

    This recipe is a nice treat. First, you will need icing sugar, rectangular biscuites and a toothpick. Take your icing sugar and mix it with hot water until fairly runny. Dip each of your biscuits into the mixture and place onto a foiled tray. Take your toothpick and carve "R.I.P" out of the icing on every biscuit. Place in fridge for a few hours and presto! Your very own mini tombstones!

    Pumpkin Cake

    Bake 2 cakes in Bundt pans. Place the 2 cakes together bottom to bottom. Frost with orange frosting made from food colouring. The pumpkin face is pieces of a Hershey Chocolate Bar cut into triangles, etc for eyes, nose, etc. And finally set a chocolate frosted cupcake at the top as the stem.

    Note: This ends up being a whole lot of cake.

    Another Eyeball Dish!

    Buy a can of lychee fruits and simply stuff the little devils with grapes (try mixing red and green grapes). Serve in a hollowed out gourd. Serve this down with Vampire blood. Any red-coloured drink will do. Simply serve it in small pumpkin-type gourds that have been cleaned out. Use black liquorice for straws, and start sucking.

    Graveyard Treat

    Crush a full bag of Oreo cookies and spread some in the bottom of the pan. Reserve the other half for the top. Next mix chocolate pudding and coolwhip, and spread over the crust. Spread the remaining crumbs over the pudding, covering completely. Use cookies to represent the tombstones, oval cookies are best, you can even pipe on saying with icing (R.I.P. etc) I have some bats on sticks that I stick down in the cookie tombstones (if they are sandwich cookies). Just use your imagination to decorate your

    graveyard. Enjoy this ghoulish treat. Happy Haunting

    Bone Sandwiches

    Cut the crusts off of some slices of white bread. Spread peanut butter and jam on the bread. Roll the sandwiches up. Ta da! You have bones with blood and marrow for dinner!

    You could always go with the good ol'carmel Apples. Caramel apples are perfect to make as a party activity or do them at home with your daughter.You can put different toppings on them. Chopped nuts, crushed cookies, black and orange sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or make faces on them with candy. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to make an 'apple pie on a stick'. Melt chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips in the microwave (stir every 30 seconds) and drizzle onto the finished apples. Also try carving small holes into the apples and sticking in halved gummy worms! Flat wooden craft sticks or pairs of disposable chopsticks that are still attached to each other work better than skewers for caramel apples. If you want to get fancy, use long cinnamon sticks instead! Have fun and hope it helps.

    Well, last night I made Mummy Hot dogs. They are super easy and they are so cute! You need some Popsicle sticks, hot dogs, and uncooked french bread(I used Pillsbury). Roll out the french bread and cut it into long thin pieces. Grab one thin piece of dough and wrap it like a coil around the hot dog. Make the coil tight and not showing any "skin" until you get to the top two inches of its "head". When you get to the top leave some extra room. Repeat this on all of your hot dogs. Take the popsicle stick and put it at the bottom of all your hot dogs. Bake them in the oven at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes. When they emerge from the oven take a condiment of your choosing, like mustard or ketchup, and make two little eyes on each mummy dog. You will put the eyes at the top where you didn't wrap the french bread. This recipe is really easy and it's a fun twist to pigs in a blanket. Have fun!
