Halloween Grappling For More
Your Halloween recipe ideas wouldn't be complete without veggies and dip, so scare up a bowl of this most traditional of Halloween party foods.
It's so easy, you'll barely have to lift a finger!
What you'll need: Carrots (unpeeled), 16 oz sour cream, 2-3 cloves of garlic, one packet ranch dip seasoning, and a serving bowl.
- Mix the dip seasoning with the sour cream and place in serving bowl.
- Cut carrots so that root ends still stick out of the bowl to a height of 1" – 2" as pictured.
- Slice garlic cloves into the shape of "fingernails."
- Use a small amount of dip to stick the sliced garlic to the tips of the carrots on the root end. You may need to trim the carrots very slightly for a flat spot that the garlic can stick to.
- Arrange the carrots in the bowl of dip in the shape of a hand coming through the bowl.
- Chill for at least one hour before serving for best flavor.
Halloween "EYEE've Been Waiting For You!"
These delightfully devilish eggs are a delicious addition to your selection of Halloween party foods!
What you'll need: one dozen eggs, green food coloring, red food coloring, thin-tipped craft paintbrush, pitted black olives, pimentos, mayonnaise, plastic piping bag (or sandwich bag), toothpicks, and a tray.
- Boil 12 eggs in shells until cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
- Peel the eggs and rise off shell pieces.
- Cut eggs down the middle so you have two long halves.
- Carefully scoop out the cooked yolks and place them in a bowl. Arrange the eggs on a tray.
- Mash the yolks with a fork. Add mayonnaise until creamy. Mix well.
- Add green food coloring to the mixture and stir well. Set aside.
- For the egg whites, dip the paintbrush in red food coloring and draw 4-5 wavy lines on each egg as shown. Color will seep in and spread, so draw very thin lines.
- Cut a hole about ½" in diameter in the bottom of the piping bag (or at the corner of a sandwich bag).
- Fill the bag with the green egg mixture and pipe some into each egg half.
- Use a toothpick to stick a pimento into each olive.
- Place an olive in the center of the green stuffing of each egg. Make sure the hole with the pimento faces up.
- Chill until time to serve.
Halloween Body Parts Punch
When you're arranging your Halloween party foods, don't forget the punch! Everyone will want to know who had a hand in creating this peculiar presentation!
What you'll need: A large punch bowl, a rubber glove, lime sherbet, sprite or ginger ale, ice cube trays, candy eyeballs, green Kool-Aid, duct tape
Note: You'll need to begin preparing this dish the day before the party to allow time for freezing.
Instructions (the day before):
- Fill ice cube trays so that each cubicle is 2/3 full of water.
- Position a candy eyeball in each one so that the eyeball faces up.
- Freeze overnight.
- For the hand, mix softened lime sherbet with prepared green Kool-Aid until a slush is formed.
- Spoon the slush into the rubber glove, making sure that it fully fills each finger.
- When the glove is completely full, seal the end shut with duct tape. (Note: You are not trying to achieve a leak-proof seal. You just want the glove to hold its shape).
- Prop the glove up in the freezer so that it maintains the proper shape without spilling. You may have to check on it as it starts to harden to adjust the fingers if necessary.
- Allow to freeze overnight.
Instructions (right before serving):
- Pour Sprite or Ginger Ale into the punch bowl.
- Drop eyeball ice cubes into the bowl, arranging them so that the eyeballs are looking up.
- Remove the glove from the freezer. Use sharp scissors to carefully cut and peel back the glove from the frozen hand.
- Place the hand in the punch.
- Serve immediately.
