This is so fun – just hollow out two halves of an orange, and fill with liquid jello. Let it harden then slice into “blood” orange slices! Adorable!
This one couldn’t be easier – just dye some pre-cooked pasta black! Add some edible clay (used for decorating cakes) shaped like worms. Spooky!
For this yummy treat, slice bananas in half, and put each half on a stick. Freeze, then dip in melted white chocolate. Add mini candy eyeballs or M&Ms for the eyes, then add some frosting in a zig-zag pattern.
For these treats, cut apples in half, and remove the core. Carve little faces into the outside of the apple, the soak in lemon juice so they won’t turn brown. Bake them on a baking sheet at 250 for about 1.5 hours, and they will shrink a bit to make exaggerated faces. Put cloves in the eye and nose holes, then plop into your punch (or apple cider).
Tip: For an adults-only party, spike the punch!
