Crisp buttery popcorn, peanuts, candy corn and crispy Chow Mein "worms" will appeal to spooks and goblins everywhere! I always told my kids that the little chow mein noodles were Halloween "worms", and they looked forward to this treat every year. You'll love the ease of making this caramel corn. The key is the use of an ordinary grocery bag, which becomes your giant mixing bowl. Clean-up is a snap.
Please read reviews.
This recipe worked for me but perhaps differences in types of peanut butter or what is in the candy make a difference. I think if the mix isn't stirring smooth enough, add extra butter before you mix in the sugar. Or perhaps add the sugar a little at a time? Otherwise I don't know what to tell you. --Sue
From Taste of Home Simple & Delicious October, 2008. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but plan on making this for Halloween pot-luck I'm going to. Description from Bonnie Hawkins of Elkhorn, Wisconsion: "This is so much fun to do - and kids love it! You'll never have to worry about leftovers. It's even good for adult parties... but you might want to increase the heat level with a hotter salsa or seasonings." Author suggests garnishing with cilantro or parsley for a pumpkin stem. I imagine you could make this pie without cutting out the Jack-O-Lantern face on the pie crust and it would be just fine.
I saw this recipe on cooking.com and thought it was so cute. My neighbor often does holiday projects with her grandchild and other small relatives and I get to tag along. Hoping we can do this one. If you have the right cookie cutters, these could work for any holiday.
I found this on a Cool Whip ad and made them with the grandkids. They had so much fun and they looked really cute. We used orange M&M's for the eyes. Time does not include making the cupcakes and can be drastically off depending upon how much 'help' you have.
A fun punch for your alcohol-free Halloween party....or add some vodka for the adult party!! The recipe also calls for 2 disposable rubber or latex gloves but I couldn't get that past the Zaar recipe editor. Chicago Sun-Times recipe. Please remember people...this is a Halloween recipe and gross is 'cool' on Halloween!
The Pumpkin Patch Cake makes use of two Bundt cakes (for the pumpkin itself) and two cupcakes (for the stem) to create a pretty convincing, life-size pumpkin. I found this adorable cake in Cook's Country magazine which I subscribe to, Oct/Nov 2006 issue. Our daughter's birthday is on Halloween, and I'm going to make it for her this year. I was having a difficult time getting the recipe through Zaar, so I just put to use 2 cake mixes. Flavor and brand is your choice! But you can also use 2 recipes of your favorite cake batter. Here's how to put it all together:
This one is for the kids or the young at heart. It's not really meant to be eaten. More like something fun for Halloween or just to hear the kids yell "Ewww, GROSS!" You could use it for your Halloween haunted house etc. Just blindfold someone and let them feel this. (Makes good "eyeballs") Posted as a request.
