    Make your favorite cheese ball. Cut green olives into rounds and put all over the cheese ball; looks like a giant eye. I have a friend who makes this all the time and it is everyones favorite.

    Love this simple veggie platter: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Simple---...Halloween-Food

    These witch fingers are interesting: http://en.petitchef.com/recipes/hall...ers-fid-499173 Make them easier with sugar cookie dough found in the dairy section.

    I did the kitty litter cake for the first time I met my late DH's family. It was a big hit.

    I have made a mummy from cheese logs. You will need three. Use one log for the body, cut one log in half, then in half length wise for the arms and legs. Cut one quarter of the remaining log and form into a head. Mix softened cream cheese, put into ziplock bag, cut off one quarter and squeeze out to form the bandages, from head to toe. You can use half black olives for the eyes. Serve with crackers.
    I found this somewhere on the internet, don't remember where...

    pumpkin dip, served up in a little pumpkin, with ginger snaps to dip in it. my daughter was hollering suggestions to go with it, yesterday--graham crackers, animal crackers, apple slices, pear slices--they were the ideas she came up with. it's easy, and i made it with zero fat cream cheese, so it wasn't as guilt producing as it might have been...

    (easy= one can of canned pumpkin--not pre-spiced, one 8 oz block of cream cheese, about 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/3-1/2 cup brown sugar (depending on how sweet your sweet tooth is), and about 3 TBSP maple sugar. beat the socks off of it, with hand blender or mixer, adjust the cinnamon, and serve it up. delicious, easy. credit goes elsewhere for the recipe--can't recall the source)

    All right, here you go. I did this for a Halloween party and they were a huge hit. Everybody loved them...there was none left. Some of the women were a little squimish but all in all it was pretty cool. I used chow mein noodles for the wiskers....they were just crooked enough to give you the willies.



    1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
    1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
    1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 egg, beaten
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 pinch black pepper
    uncooked spaghetti, broken into quarters
    thinly sliced raw carrot
    black peppercorns, cooked black beans
    1 (19 ounce) can ground tomatoes
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    Directions:
    1In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, rice, onion, egg and 1 teaspoons (5 mL) of the salt. Mix well.2Now make the rats. Using a measuring cup, scoop out 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the ground beef mixture. Form it, by hand, into a firmly packed teardrop shape — pointy on one end, rounded on the other. This is your basic rat. Place it into a 3-quart (3 liter) shallow baking dish and gently pinch in the neck area. Poke a piece of uncooked spaghetti into the larger rounded end as a tail. Repeat with the remaining ground beef mixture.3When all the rats are neatly placed in the baking dish, stir together the tomatoes, water, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, remaining 1 teaspoons (5 mL) of salt and 1/4 teaspoons (1 mL) pepper. Pour over the rats. Cover the dish with foil wrap (or a lid, if it has one) and bake at 350° F (180° C) for 45 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake for another 45 to 50 minutes, basting occasionally with sauce, or until the rice is tender and the rats are fully cooked.4Gently remove rats, one at a time, from the sauce and place gently on a serving platter. (Take care not to damage the tails — they’re fairly delicate.) Into each rat, insert two carrot slices as ears, peppercorns (or whatever) for eyes, and a few more broken strands of uncooked spaghetti for whiskers. Spoon sauce around the rats and serve, smiling wickedly.

    All right, here you go. I did this for a Halloween party and they were a hugh hit. Everybody loved them...there was none left. Some of the women were a little squimish but all in all it was pretty cool.
