Halloween Recipes - Double Double Toil & Trouble

Double, double toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble

(Here are some fun Halloween recipes that I picked out for you!)

Witches' Hats Cookies

32 Hershey's® Kisses® brand milk chocolates, unwrapped
1 package (11 1/2 ounces) fudge-striped shortbread cookies (32)
1 tube (4.25 ounces) orange or red decorating icing

1.Attach 1 chocolate candy to chocolate bottom of each cookie, using decorating icing.
2.Pipe decorating icing around base of milk chocolate candy.



Orange sherbet
Ginger ale

Place a scoop of orange sherbet in a tall glass. Pour ginger ale slowly over the sherbet. Serve with a curly straw and spoon.



This simple show-stopper is pleasing to the eye and taste buds! An assortment of turkey, chicken and ham salad sandwiches, carved up like gravestones; this is the perfect Halloween platter.

For Chicken or Turkey Sandwich Filling:
4 cans (5 ounces each) chunk breast of chicken or turkey in water, drained
1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 cup light mayonnaise

For Tuna Sandwich Filling:
4 cans (6 ounces each) chunk light tuna in water, drained
1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup light mayonnaise

For Ham Sandwich Filling:
4 cans (5 ounces each) chunk lean ham in water, drained and finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup light mayonnaise

For Sandwiches and Tray:
24 slices white sandwich bread
1 head lettuce, finely shredded
Equipment: Toaster oven, Mixing bowls

To make any of the sandwich fillings, break the canned chicken, turkey, tuna or ham into flakes in a mixing bowl. Add the seasoning and mayonnaise and mix to combine. Note: The amount of each sandwich filling is enough to make 12 sandwiches. Trim the bread slices into tombstone shapes. Toast in a toaster oven until the bread has browned. Divide the filling between half of the toasted bread slices and spread evenly.
Assemble into sandwiches with the remaining toasted bread slices. Decorate each sandwich with “R. I. P.” or skull and crossbones with ketchup or mustard in squirt bottles.

To serve: Arrange shredded lettuce on a large tray and set the sandwiches on the end in the field of lettuce-like tombstones in a graveyard.

Servings: 12

Spider's Web Cake


cake mix
orange frosting
white frosting
plastic spider


Prepare Cake according to the directions on the packet of the cake mix in a round pan.

Cover cake with orange frosting. Use white or chocolate frosting to make the spider's web. The cake shown in the picture has a white frosting web.

Choose a center point for the web. It may not necessarily be the center of the cake.

Starting from this center point, draw lines to the edge of the cake all the way to the sides. Join these lines with scalloped lines and complete concentric circles all over the surface of the cake as shown in the picture.

Decorate the cake with a plastic spider. You can even add plastic bugs to the web.

(You could do a chocolate frosting and white web instead.)
