Frightening Foods For Halloween
Turn Heads And Stomachs With Some Frightening Foods At Halloween
Are you looking for some spooky and frightening food ideas to serve at your next Halloween party? Here are some quick and easy ideas that will frighten just about anyone who tries to eat one.
Place food items in buckets, cover the tops of the buckets with artificial cobwebs, and ask folks at your haunted house to plunge their hands into the goo, and guess what they feel. Coat all of these lightly with vegetable oil for an extra-slimy sensation. Use your imagination and do not be afraid to turn all the food into a frightening delicious dish for all of your guests.
You could even make a game out of each guest trying to guess what the food item is and offer a prize to the one who knows the answer.

Halloween Scary Party Food Ideas
Green Monster Mouths
4 green apples
1 cup peanut butter
Place the apple, stem side up, on a cutting board. Cut away 2 halves from 2 sides of the apple, leaving a 1 inch thick center slice with the stem and the core. Discard the core slice. Cut each half into 4 wedges. Repeat with the remaining apples.
Spread 2 teaspoons of the peanut butter on the side of the apple wedge. Top with another apple wedge, aligning the edges to resemble jaws. Insert the almonds to make fangs.
Tip: For best effect, use a crinkle cutter garnishing tool to create a tooth look on the apple wedges.
Candy Corn Pizza
1 package refrigerated pizza crust dough
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 tablespoons paprika
Â¼ cup white cheese sauce
Â½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup tomato sauce
To make the white cheese sauce, mix 3 tablespoons vegetable broth with 3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese in a small saucepan over low heat, until it is melted. Season with salt and white pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 13 inch round pizza pan with cooking spray. Fit the pizza dough into the pan, shaping as needed.
Place 1 cup cheddar cheese in a medium bowl. Add the paprika and stir until the cheese is evenly colored and set this aside.
Spread the white cheese sauce in the center of the pizza in a 4 inch diameter circle. Arrange the mozzarella cheese on top of the white sauce. Place a 3 inch ring of tomato sauce around the center circle and top with the red colored cheddar cheese. Use the remaining 1 cup of cheddar cheese to create a 1 Â½ inch border around the edge of the pizza.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the edge is lightly browned and the cheese is melted and bubbling. Cut into slices and serve.
