Horror-ible Halloween Food From "Not Martha"

Updated on August 15, 2014

"Trick or TrEAT" food from the "Not Martha" Blog

"Not Martha" has two of the most oh so creative recipes for Halloween Food that I have ever seen. One recipe is really gross looking and one is just plain cute!

Her "The Meat Hand" looks so real (see the image below) that I am not sure that anyone would eat it. However, her recipe looks delish!

On the other hand the orange pumpkin pancakes look too cute to eat, but with the black cinnamon syrup as a topping I would have no trouble digging in!

Keep scrolling down to find the links to the recipes I mention and to find a link to "Tricks or TrEats" for more creative food ideas for Halloween.

A Gross (yet very edible) Meat Hand Recipe for Halloween!

A meatloaf by another name!

According to "not martha", she "made the basic meatloaf recipe from How to Cook Everything using a food processor to chop the onions and carrot to a very fine mince so I could fill in the details of the mold without trouble. One meatloaf recipe using 2 pounds of meat will make two hands."

If you would like to see how she came up the best version of her "Meat Hand" please visit not martha--Meat Hand. Her instructions and photos are excellent and you will enjoy the blog. Image is used with permission from NotMartha.Org.

Buy Your Hand Mold: - Use It to Make Grotesque and Gross Food for Halloween!

I imagine that if you really get into the "Halloween Thing" you could find lots of uses for this mold! Jello Salad is a for sure thing. What about making a white jello for the hand. Or maybe make a salmon congealed salad---ewwww. That could be really gross looking, too.

Not Martha's Orange Pumpkin Pancakes for a Halloween Breakfast:

A great Halloween recipe that could become a tradition!

Says "not martha": "These are light and fluffy pumpkin pancakes made extra orange with food coloring and decorated for Halloween breakfast using cinnamon syrup that has been colored a dark black. I'm a bit obsessed with piping spiders onto things. Spiders scare the bejeezus out of me so it's not surprising I turn to them at Halloween."

To find out how this creative blogger made these pancakes, please click Orange Pumpkin Pancakes. You will find more images and the yummy, orangey Halloween recipe!

      As soon as I saw something about "meat hands" I had to look!! I think I'm actually going to make that for Halloween. Meat loaf is about one of the 2 things I can cook and my in-laws will be in town. The kids will love it and everyone else will be creeped out. Cute!
