Do you want to make your Halloween weekend terrifying down to the last detail? Here are 13 horror food ideas for you and your kids! Everyone will be delighted with these delicious Halloween plates!
Isn't it pretty special to eat ladyfingers when you think about it? Well no! As if the concept wasn't scary enough already, here are lady fingers turned into bloody witch fingers! The recipe is simple, make cookies in the shape of fingers, add small lines in the middle of the dough before baking for the joints and glue almonds as fingernails with a little red jam. You can add a little jam to your fingertips for an even more dramatic effect! If you already have too many desserts, you can also make chicken fingers and stick red pepper nails on them.
Scary PeppersBecause your children's poor stomachs will have a hard time with all that taffy and all that candy, here's a good way to get them to eat raw vegetables!
Add a he althy dip or aSpooky Halloween Pesto Dip and they'll be begging for more!
A good pumpkin soup will allow you to use the pulp of this evil pumpkin which now serves as a lantern. Here is a simple recipe:
- 1 pumpkin
- 3 potato chunks
- 2 carrots
- 1 onion, coarsely chopped
- 1 white leek, sliced
- 12 cups (3 L) chicken broth
- 1 cup (250 ml) cream, light
- A little curcumin or nutmeg
- Variation: add a pear or an apple
Core your pumpkin, putting the seeds and threads aside and leaving some flesh near the skin, cook the vegetables in the broth, then put them in the blender, adding the cream and the seasoning. Pour the soup into the hollowed out pumpkin and voila! You will get your pumpkin pot!
Prepare a good gooey orange or grape gelatin and place some gelatin worms in it before it sets. This will give your jelly some movement and it will look much more menacing. You can even make the worms yourself by tying several straws together with a rubber band and dripping a colored gelatin mixture into them. When it's frozen, you can get your worms out by running cool water through the straw.
Kids will love these little mummified hot dogs made with a sausage and a Pillsbury croissant. Add two small drops of ketchup and cook for 12 to 15 minutes at 375°F. All that remains is to add a little ketchup flavored blood.
Another delicious way to use the flesh of your pumpkins is to make a pie. There are several variations of this pie, such as Ricardo's Orange Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Pie from Coup de Pouce. Add a little whipped cream and you're done.
Just play around with the ingredients (tomato sauce, cheese, black olives, etc.) to form mummy strips. We bet you won't have two alike!
Take a cake, cover it with fondant and decorate it in the shape of an eye using a piping tip and thick red, blue and black icing. Place this giant eye in the middle of the table and let it watch your children!

Witch Cake Pops
According to the same principle as for those of the mummy, prepare small balls of cake that you will place on sticks in order to prepare to decorate these little witches with colored marzipan or sugar paste. Plant them in a pot full of candies and voila!
Pumpkin Cake Pops
