Frightful Food


Along with many of you bloggers out there, I absolutely LOVE Halloween. I can't wait for my friend Patty's Halloween party tonight and to share my costume with you tomorrow. I also love to cook and bake and especially to make decorative foods like cookies and cakes. With all my clubs and classes, I have a great opportunity to make fun treats to share.




I saw this idea in my recent issue of Cooking Light magazine. I love that these cookies start with a gingerbread man cookie cutter. So easy! They are actually chocolate cookies, but I have to admit I didn't use the recipe from Cooking Light. I have a favorite Martha Stewart recipe I like to use.



Last night my Cherish Club got to enjoy these little take-out treat boxes I made from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and Close To My Heart's Mischief paper. I added Tim Holtz's spider from his Candlelight Fright Alternations die.




But what's inside, you ask?




A bit of a tricky treat. These are white chocolate skeleton skulls made from a Martha Stewart candy mold. 




How delicious do these look? Witches fingers made from Pillsbury refrigerated breadstick dough. I shaped them all knobby-like, then brushed them with an egg-wash and added a blanched almond with some red food coloring gel. I sprinkled a bit of rosemary and salt over them and then popped them in the oven. Yum!




I had plenty of chocolate cookie dough and royal icing made up so I made these fun ghosts. 




Pretty easy to do and fun to eat.


Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you have some wicked fun this weekend!
