The Revenge of Tricky Treats!

This past weekend we hosted our Fifth Annual Halloween Horrorfest so I decided to throw down on the tricky treats spread again, but this time actually TAKE PHOTOS of the gross-looking/good-tasting food we made before our guests completely decimated the blood-curdling buffet. I used the original line-up from a couple of years ago as my guide, but added a few new gruesome characters to liven things up a bit. I left the naming rights to Micky this year, and some of the place cards definitely got a chuckle out of our friends. Feast your eyeballs!

(cheese ball "brain" with Triscuits and Wheat Thins)
[Cheese ball was made from a combination of this recipe and this recipe from Martha.]

Chips & Barf
(little jack-o-lantern spewing forth guacamole with tortilla chips)

Human Vegetables
(the usual suspects: carrots, celery, broccoli, ranch dip and hummus)

Disembodied Mouths 
(apple slices, caramel spread, and mini marshmallow "teeth") 

Kitty Litter Cake
(yellow cake, chocolate frosting, crumbled Golden Oreos and Tootsie Roll "cat turds") 
[Inspired by this recipe.]

Baby Fingers
(Lit'l Smokies wrapped up in crescent roll dough with sliced almond "fingernails" plus ketchup and mustard)

Crapple Sin-amon Muffins
(Apple Cinnamon Muffins whipped up by our gracious co-host Neal Block) 

Breaky Bones
(expertly decorated skeleton cookies made by the beautiful and talented Shannon McKeon

Wishing you all a devilishly delicious Halloween this year!

  1. This is awesome. We had a couple of the same/similar things for the kids party on Saturday. That kitty litter one is amazingly disgusting.
