Braunschweiger Spread

One doesn't come across too many Braunschweiger recipes these days, which is a shame as it a delicious ingredient. While you can slice it and serve it up plain on crackers, mixing it up with a bit of cream cheese and seasonings makes a lovely, smooth spread with a zippy taste.

Serve with crackers or even better, toast up some Rye bread, add softened button on top and then a thick slathering of Braunschweiger Spread on top. It is incredible. Enjoy!

Frankenstein Fingers

For our latest Halloween get together I made these Frankenstein Fingers, which are chocolate cookies that are baked, topped with a candy corn "nail," then drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze to emphasize the wrinkles on the fingers.

Chocolate and spooky! Enjoy!

Green Halloween Punch

This beautiful Green Halloween Punch is a vibrant and sweet concoction that both kiddos and adults will enjoy. I made this recipe for one large pitchers worth, but have included directions below for making this recipe for a large punch bowl as well.

I loved the color of this. Perfect and it lends itself well to be named something sinister like "Slime Punch" or "Ectoplasm Punch." Fun stuff. Enjoy!

Jack-o'-lantern Cheeseburger Pie

Though it may look a little garish, this Jack-o'-lantern Cheeseburger Pie is a delicious, kid friendly food and perfect for a spooky Halloween party.

Slice it up with a pizza cutter and serve. The crust held up better than I expected, but that might vary depending on what brand you use. I use Pillsbury premade refrigerated pie crusts that you unroll on the counter.

It does look a bit spooky, but trust me, it tastes great. Everyone at our party loved this. Enjoy!

Hot Dog Spiders

A simple and kid friendly appetizer for Halloween are these adorable Hot Dog Spiders. They take only 3 ingredients but they still taste great.

The recipe calls for black sesame seeds for the eyes, but unfortunately I had none so I used poppy seeds instead. Still cute, just a little less noticeable. Placing the eyes is a great project for little ones that want to help in the kitchen.

Super quick and super cute for a Halloween party. Enjoy!

Halloween 2017 + Great Last Minute Halloween Party Foods

Happy Halloween! I'll be posting the recipes through out the day today as I am able to, so check back if you are in need of last minute Halloween party recipes. Everything can be made the day of and it comes together very quickly. This was for our Halloween party for my children and their cousins.

Green Halloween Punch and Spider Hot Dogs.

We froze candy eyeballs into ice cubes but unfortunately those sank to the bottom of the pitcher. You can make out a few lurking at the bottom of the pitcher if you look closely.

Jack-o'-lantern Cheeseburger Pie. You can slice this pie up just like a pizza and it held together very well. Premade pie crust makes this a very fast recipe that tastes great. Everybody loved it and said how tasty it was.

Close up of the cute Spider Hot Dogs. Black Sesame Seeds work a bit better for the eyes but we were out so poppy seeds had to make due. Still cute!

Chocolate Witches Fingers

Recipes coming later today. Have a great Halloween!
