Default SS Halloween Recipes

Bloody Eyeballs

Eyeballs can be served as appetizers or frozen in ice and put into drinks.


Per eyeball:
1 radish
1 pimento stuffed green olive

Peel radishes, leaving thin streaks of red skin on to represent blood vessels. Using the tip of the vegetable peeler or a small, knife, carefully scoop out a small hole in each radish, roughly the size of an olive. Stuff a green olive, pimiento side out, in each hole.

Prepare ice "eyeballs" at least a day before your plan to use them. Place 1 radish eyeball in each section of an empty ice cube tray. Pare the radishes down a bit to fit, if necessary. Fill the tray with water and freeze overnight.

Default Frozen Jack O'Lanterns

Frozen Orange & Ice Cream Jack O’Lanterns


18 navel oranges
1 recipe Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (Eat, Chat & Melt the Fat, Page 251)
18 whole cinnamon sticks

Cut off the top of the oranges and gently hollow out the pulp, leaving a thick shell; hollow pulp out of cut-off tops too. Carefully cut Jack-O'Lantern faces into each orange. Freeze hollowed shells for at least 1 hour.

Pack scoops of ice cream into frozen shells, avoiding letting the ice cream ooze out of eyes or mouth. Cut a small hole in the top of each orange. Set tops back on over the ice cream and insert a cinnamon-stick stem through the hole. Freeze for at least 3 hours or until serving time.

Default Halloween Hamburgers

Halloween Hamburgers

1-1/2 lb ground beef
6 slices cheese
red or green bell peppers
pitted olives
6 lettuce leaves


Cut cheese, olives and bell peppers into desired shapes. A metal cookie cutter works well for the cheese. If you find it sticks, coat the cutter with vegetable oil first.

Lightly shape ground beef into six 1/2"-thick patties (or 4 larger patties). Choose a cooking method.

To broil, place patties on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4" from heat. Broil 10 to 12 minutes or until centers are no longer pink, turning once.

To pan-broil
, place patties in preheated nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until center is no longer pink, turning once.


Season with salt and pepper, if desired, after turning. During last few minutes of cooking, top with cheese, bell peppers and olives to make faces. Serve on lettuce leaves.

Icky Jello Worms

Cooking time: ~ 5 min.
Prep time: ~ 15 min., plus overnight chilling

You'll Need:
100 flexible plastic straws
an empty, cleaned 1-quart milk or orange juice carton to hold straws (or another tall container)

1 pkg. (6 oz.) sugar-free raspberry or grape flavor gelatin
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water
3/4 cup whipping cream
12 to 15 drops green food coloring

Waxed paper

Combine gelatins in a bowl and add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 min.

Meanwhile, gently pull straws to extend to full length; place in tall container.

Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Carefully pour into container, filling straws.

Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.

Pull straws from container or, if you're using a carton, simply tear the carton away from the filled straws. Pull straws apart. Run hot tap water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time. Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with rolling pin, or use your fingers.


Lay worms on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days. Worms will hold at room temperature for about 2 hours.

kidee, Sandy & mamabeek, you are very welcome. I think Halloween is such a fun holiday. I'm trying to figure out what to give out for treats this year. I won't give any candy unless I can find sugarless. We don't get many kids here because we are the only ones on our block to give out treats. Last year I gave out mini bags of microwave popcorn and the kids really seemed to be happy with it. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
