      Apple Bites

      These toothsome treats are a fun and healthy break from Halloween


      recipe ingredients:


      slivered almonds

      1. Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of

      each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth.

      2. Tip: If you’re not going to serve them right away, baste the

      apples with orange juice to keep them from browning.


      Edible Eyeballs

      Set out a platter of these creepy peepers, and your Halloween party

      guests are bound to do a double take.

      recipe ingredients:


      cream cheese

      pitted black olives

      1. Simply slice carrots into 1-inch-thick chunks, top each with a

      blob of cream cheese and one half of a pitted black olive, and serve.


      Spider Pretzels

      These arachnid treats are easy to make and they look positively

      lifelike crawling across your child’s snack plate.

      For each:

      2 round crackers

      2 teaspoons smooth peanut butter

      8 small pretzel sticks

      2 raisins

      With the peanut butter, make a cracker sandwich. Insert eight

      pretzel “legs” into the filling. With a dab of peanut butter, set two

      raisin “eyes” on top. Makes 1.


      Vampire Fangs in Blood

      Your guests will want to sink their teeth into these.

      Recipe Ingredients

      8 large Red Delicious apples

      1/4 cup lemon juice

      1 tbsp. sugar

      1 10-oz. jar strawberry or cherry sauce


      1. Wash, peel and core the apples. Then cut each apple into 8 pieces.

      2. Dip the cut apples into the lemon juice to prevent them from

      turning brown.

      3. To prepare the fangs, cut the apple slices into long, narrow

      triangles, making pointy tooth-like shapes. Redip slices in the lemon

      juice and lightly sprinkle them with sugar.

      4. Arrange the fangs on a serving platter with the strawberry dipping

      sauce in the middle. Make sure you splatter some of the “blood” over

      the fangs. Makes 10 servings.


      Putrid Punch

      When your crowd gets thirsty this Halloween, serve them the special

      of the haunted house–putrid punch.

      recipe ingredients:

      1 13-oz. package lemon-lime Kool-Aid

      1 cup sugar

      8 cups water

      1 can frozen orange juice concentrate

      4 cups ginger ale

      Worm cubes (ice cubes with gummy worms frozen inside)

      3 scoops orange sherbert

      This sick-colored punch looks disgusting but tastes divine. Empty the

      Kool-Aid package into a punch bowl. Add the sugar, then the water and

      stir until dissolved. Stir in the orange juice. Just before serving,

      add the ginger ale and worm cubes and float the scoops of sherbert on

      top. Before long, the punch will be green and infested with worms.

      Serves 14. A perfect drink to compliment Worms on a Bun.

      party tip: be sure to freeze your worm cubes before the party.


      rotten apple punch

      most kids won’t eat a worm unless that worm is gummy. so we put them

      in this “rotten” punch to make it extra yummy.



      apple cider (adjust the amount for the number of people you plan to

      serve; we suggest at least 1 gallon)

      Five 1/2-cup containers (we used Pyrex glass dishes; other small

      containers or cups will also work)

      Red and green food coloring

      10 to 15 gummy worms

      Punch bowl

      1. Pour apple cider into all 5 small dishes, stopping about 1/2 inch

      from the top. Add 2 drops of red and 1 drop of green food coloring to

      each dish and stir until the colors have blended.

      2. Hang 2 or 3 gummy worms around the edge of each dish and place the

      dishes in the freezer. If you use more than 3 worms, the rotten

      apples won’t float as well. Freeze until the rotten apples are solid.

      3. Just before serving, slip the frozen wormy apples out of the

      dishes by setting them briefly in a few inches of warm water in your


      4. Float the rotten apples in a large punch bowl filled with untinted

      cider. For added creepiness, drape the gummy worms over the edges of

      your serving bowl.

      5. Tip: Do steps 1 and 2 the day before serving the punch.


      Wiggly, Jiggly Crystal Ball

      Let your guests gaze into this Jell-O crystal ball (packed with

      cosmic fruit) before helping themselves to a plateful.


      4 3-ounce packages yellow Jell-O

      2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

      6 cups boiling water

      Melon, cantaloupe, watermelon and blueberries


      In a large, deep bowl, mix the Jell-O and the unflavored gelatin.

      Pour the boiling water over the mixture and stir until completely

      dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours, or until partially set.

      Meanwhile, use cookie cutters to carve the melons into stars and

      moons (sets of the cutters or aspic cutters are available in kitchen

      supply stores for about $16 and are worth the investment). Press all

      the fruit into the partially set gelatin, then refrigerate for 4 more

      hours, or until set.

      Place the bowl in a pan of hot water to loosen the Jell-O from the

      sides, then invert onto a wizard-like platter. Serves 16 to 18.
