Happy Halloween, COOKies!
Is this one of my favorite holidays? Yes. Is it one of yours? Probably not. But here’s one thing we obviously have in common: food. And here’s another: the internet. Whether you’re throwing/going to a party or just staying in, there are a ton of creepy crawly Halloween-inspired recipes out there that would be fun to take a stab at (see what I did there?). So if you’ve been procrastinating or just realized that it’s also FRIDAY NIGHT, then here are a few ideas that will hopefully inspire a frightfully good time for all.
First off, if you are hosting an adult soirée, Bon Appétit’s Editor-In-Chief, Adam Rapoport, has a few DOs and DONTs to abide by.
Over at Martha Stewart‘s website, the Gwyneth-bashing domestic goddess has outlined tons of recipes for frightening fare to make this evening (or whenever the mood strikes, really). Martha’s got everything from Bedeviled Eggs (complete with red chile pepper devil horns and skinny chive mustache) and Monster Mucus (made from oysters) to Swamp Sangria and Cauldron Curry. Even if you don’t like the whole dressing up part, these items look spooktacularly fun to make and are probably pretty delicious!
If Martha isn’t your cup of tea, the Food Network has a bunch of ideas from classics like Chocolate and Caramel Candy Apples to adorable, easy-to-make, little Spider Bites (made from pretzels and by Sandra Lee, sorry!) and the pièce de résistance, THIS PUMPKIN CHEESE BALL.
The good folks over at Southern Living also put together a list of dips, drinks and snacks but if you really want inspiration, I recommend losing yourself for hours in this Halloween Food Ideas Pinterest board. Somebody made Halloween Baked Potato Skin Pizzas, you guys! I die. I die.
Have fun tonight!
