Tombstone cupcakes

Tombstone-cupcakes

These look so cool, and they’re actually really easy to make. You can bake a batch of any cupcakes and add some white frosting. The “dirt” is just a crumble of chocolate chip cookies. The “tombstone” is a chocolate cream-filled finger  sandwich cookie, with the year piped on with black decorating gel. Betty Crocker’s got a version of the full recipe.

Spooky pizzas

The spooky pizza is so simple, I’m a little disappointed I didn’t already think of it. All you need are thin and long slices of cheese to put over your pizza to make a mummy’s face, and add olives for the eyes. Voila! Mummy pizza! The spooky eyes pizza seems to use a combination of salami, pepperoni and olives to make the ‘eye’, but I can’t be sure of that. But hey, it should work anyway, right?

Banana ghosts, vampire apples, orange pumpkins

ghost-bananas-vampire-apples-orange-pumpkins

Who says Halloween has to be a diabetic’s nightmare? Banana ghosts are just bananas with chocolate chips stuck on them. For the vampire apples, you can use lots of materials to make the teeth, but white chocolate would be the yummiest option. Slivered almonds would work great too, and require much less work. As for the orange pumpkins, roll up a bit of celery or spinach leaves and stick them in there. Happy fruity Halloween!

Barfing pumpkin dip

Barfing-pumpkin-dip

Made some dip to go with those chips? Spruce up the decoration a bit with this easy tip. Grab a pumpkin (preferably a small one) and place it on the plate. Arrange the dip so it looks like the pumpkin has barfed it out. Try and put a little into the pumpkin’s mouth, if you can. It’s gross, but in a cool way.

Creepy Oreo spiders

Creepy-Oreo-spiders

A little bit of licorice can transform an ordinary pack of Oreos into creepy crawly cookies. Break off the licorice (preferably black-coloured licorice) and stick them into the creamy centre of the cookie, making them appear like legs. Pipe some icing for eyes and you’re done!

Sausage fingers!

Sausage-fingers

This is genius. I’ve seen “sausage fingers” before, but they have never looked as creepy without the brilliant addition of little pieces of onions as fingernails. And to really make it gruesome, don’t forget to add some ketchup. Oh, there will be blood!

Skull cheeseball

Skull-cheeseball

Grab a huge pack of cream cheese or mozzarella and carve a skull out of it. It doesn’t need to be perfect, because you are going to cover most of it with prosciutto ham. Pop a couple of olives for spooky eyes and serve with crackers. The knife going through the skull is both fun and useful, so go for it!

Witch hat cupcakes

Witch-hat-muffins

The witch hat cupcakes or muffins are really easy to make because all you need to do is make a batch of regular cupcakes or muffins and invert a waffle cone as a hat! Some greet frosting wouldn’t hurt either. Here’s the full recipe.

    Super awesome find Mihir! I particularly like the vomiting pumpkin. Would not eat though. :-D

      Haha, thanks man! Come on, it's not that gross either.

      My personal fav is the sausage fingers. The "onion-nails" are a master touch.
