Creepy Treats and Tasty Eats: Halloween Food Ideas for You

I had to write this extra post to share some AMAZING Halloween ideas! We had a little party at work today and gave it our best Martha efforts!

Here are photos and some "how-to" links:

1. Dulce de Leche Bat Cookies: My co-worker made these tender cookies with a delicious dulce de leche center. Click here for the recipe.

2. Ghoulish Punch: We made this using a Halloween mask and gloves as ice molds. Click here for the how-to and punch recipe. If you want to use dry ice for a fog effect, use one large bowl for the dry ice and water and nest the punch bowl on top of the dry ice. You should NOT put dry ice into food.

3. Meringue Ghosts: Meringue is the perfect medium for spooky ghosts! It's also a relatively light and healthy treat! My co-worker whipped out these tasty treats! I'm not sure which recipe he used but I am thinking about using this one here at 101 Cookbooks.

4. Malted Milk Eye Balls: I made these creepy confections starting with a malted milk ball, dipping it in chocolate and embellishing it. I'll post the step-by-step on Friday.

Do you have a favorite Halloween treat we should try? Please share!
