Monster Cookies — Halloween Cookies

The monster cookies are fun to make and great to eat. To make these deliciously spooky cookies, mix together peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, eggs, and margarine.

Next, drop balls of the mixture onto the cookie sheet, flatten the balls to a circular shape, and press M and M candies on the unbaked cookies. Then, bake the cookies, cool them and serve.


3. Eye-Popping Soup

The eye-popping soup is a dangerously delicious treat for all the tiny Halloweens out there. To make this yummy soup, begin with frying the onions and garlic first in melted butter. Fry them over medium flame until translucent. Add wine and keep stirring until most of the liquid has vaporized. Now, add stock, oregano, and tomatoes and let the soup simmer for about 45 minutes. Then, puree the soup until smooth, by constantly stirring it with a ladle. Season the soup with salt and pepper and get busy with the preparation of the bugs. Using a toothpick, make 4 holes in every Kalamata olive and insert in the holes, rosemary leaves to make eight legs. Then, insert two chive pieces at the end of every olive to make the antennae of the bugs. For the eyeballs, scoop out holes from bocconicini using melon baller and cut pimiento-stuffed olive into halves. Place the olives in the holes of the bocconicinis and then, float the eyeballs in the soup. While serving, make sure every bowl of soup contains 3 to 4 eyeballs. To add the final spooky touch, place a bug at the rim of every bowl.


4. Dirt Dessert

Dirt Dessert — Halloween Dessert

The dirt dessert is a big hit during the Halloweens and can be easily prepared using crushed Oreo cookies and gummy worms. To make dirt dessert, first, mix together cream cheese, butter, and sugar and set it aside. Mix milk and pudding together, and a cool whip to it. Then, combine the creamed cheese and the cool whip mixture together. Now, fill in a flowerpot with the pudding mixture and top it with worms and cookie crumbs. Make sure you add the cookie crumbs in the end to make them look like dirt in the flowerpot. Refrigerate this yummy dessert for a couple of hours. Insert edible fondant flowers or decorative plastic flowers and garnish the dessert with gummy worms.


5. Creepy Witches' Fingers

The witches’ fingers are amongst the most favored creepy snacks in Halloween parties. To make them, mix sugar, butter, vanilla extract, almond extract, and egg in a bowl. In another bowl, beat together flour, salt, and baking soda. Combine the mixtures from the two bowls and refrigerate the resulting dough. Next, using the cold dough, make finger shaped cookies. Press an almond at the end of every finger to make fingernails. Make finger knuckles using a knife. Then, bake the cookies until golden. If you want, you can pull out the almonds from the finger ends, paint them with edible red gel, and place them back in their position. The bloody witches’ fingers are ready to gross out the guests in your Halloween party!
