Did I scare you? It’s been so long, I know! I’m not going to sit around and make you read a long list of reasons that I haven’t been posting, because there’s really only one reason:
I doubt I’ll have time to start posting again regularly, but I just wanted to say hi and share a couple of fun Halloween recipes. Last year Henning and I had a Halloween party and we went a bit wild with the themed food–let’s just say there was a kitty litter cake involved and leave it at that. These two slightly more tame recipes are sure to be a hit at your Halloween party.
The first is for spooky witch finger almond cookies. They taste great and are creepy too! Crunchy almond dough is dyed green and almonds serve as fingernails. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can paint the nails with red food coloring, or even squeeze red decorator gel under the almond nails for a super nasty effect.
The next is a great recipe for Eyeball Punch. The punch was a huge hit at the party, and it makes such a great impression with relatively little work. Eyeballs made out of canned lychees stuffed with grapes float in a clear (spiked, if you wish) fruit punch. Yum! We also made a bloody hand out of cranberry juice frozen in a rubber glove, which added some extra punch to the punch. The idea for the eyeballs came from an old German magazine. Those crazy Deutschlanders, so creative!
