Wonderfully Creepy Halloween Foods

One of my favourite blogs has these wonderfully creepy Halloween food ideas including: Not Martha’s Meatloaf Hands, Matthew Mead’s Broccoli Soup with Eyeballs, and more!

Just discovered this blog today but they have some wonderful ideas for Halloween goodies here!  I really love the Eyeball Martini and am so wishing I was hosting a holiday party so I could serve them!

Some spooky cocktails:

Green Goblin Jello Shooters:  Use any flavour of a green coloured Jello and pair with vodka or tequila.  Prepare the Jello shooters as usual but before you put them into the refrigerator to solidify, stick a gummi worm halfway into each shooter, letting the rest of it dangle out of the cup.  When the Jello has firmed up, the worm will be suspended in it.

Red Zombie:  In a cocktail shaker, combine 2 oz. gin, the juice from 1 1/2 lemons, 1 tsp. icing sugar with some ice.  Strain into a tall glass over ice cubes.  Fill up the rest of the glass with soda water, add a few drops red food colouring, and stir.  Garnish with red maraschino cherries from which you have removed the stems and replaced them with a chocolate chip (put it point side down into the opening left by the stem) – voila!  Zombie eyeballs!

Some oh so eerie cocktails using black vodka:  http://www.marthastewart.com/article/spooky-halloween-spirits?backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/halloween-cocktails#slide_1

If you mix up larger batches of some of these drinks, you can always serve them in bottles adorned with creepy labels.  Martha Stewart makes a collection of these that you can purchase at Michaels’ Arts and Crafts Stores.  She also has printable templates for a couple of labels suitable for use on bottles of wine. http://www.marthastewart.com/article/wine-bottle-labels?&backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/halloween-clip-art?

Here is another take on the bottle labels at a really great crafting blog called Dollar Store Crafts:   http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2009/10/creepy-bottle-labels/

Previously I shared with you the popcorn hands idea…here’s another adorable way to package up popcorn for Halloween distribution.  This time the packaging is made to look like witches and once again it would make for a great party or school favour.  Or, if you are like me, we used to have “special” treats…ones that were homemade and more elaborate for select trick-or-treaters (children of friends that we knew personally and so on).  http://www.marthastewart.com/article/goody-witches
