I know I'm late for this year, but these are awesome [Nov. 1st, 2010|12:54 pm]
Halloween Recipes

I always forget about Crafster.org these days, what with the creation of Ravelry.com to help me find knitting/crocheting patterns. But an awesome person in one of my crafting groups sent me over there to look at a dress she had crocheted, and I was browsing the site and came across this recipe:


They're vampire lolipops!!! My niece is totally TWILIGHT obsessed, and I think I'll be making these as part of her Christmas present this year, even though she's Team Jacob (she used to be Team Alice, but then Taylor got hot, and she hit her pre-teen years.)

In 2008, I did an e-mail recipe exchange...I am thinking I'd love to do another one this season. So here's the details. If you're interested, send me an PM with your e-mail address by November 15th, and on November 15th I will send out a recipe to everyone who gave me their address. In exchange, you reply all to the e-mail with your favorite recipe.

Bloody Brain Mold (Panna Cotta w/ Pomegranate sauce) [Oct. 4th, 2009|01:10 pm]
Halloween Recipes
[mood |creative]
[music |Aural Vampire]

I got this recipe from a co-worker, and I can't wait to try it.

1 cup milk
5 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
4 cups heavy cream
1 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
pinch salt
2 tablespoons vanilla
8 oz. pomegranate juice
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch

1 brain mold

1. Place milk in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over top. Stir and let stand 5 minutes.

2. Combine cream and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Add the gelatin mixture and stir until combined. Pour into brain mold, cover w/ plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight until completely set. To un-mold, gently tilt mold so that sides of the panna cotta pull away a bit, then place on a serving platter. You can also dip the bottom of the mold in warm water to help pull the panna cotta away from the sides.

3. For the "coagulated blood" sauce, combine pomegranate juice and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a saucepan. Mix in cornstarch, whisking vigorously. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. The consistency should be on the thicker side. Serve over the brain mold.

*Mold can also be served on a cutting board w/ a large chef's knife plunged into the center of the brain for extra creep factor.

Caramel Apples [May. 4th, 2009|07:35 pm]
Halloween Recipes
[mood |mellowmellow]
[music |The Smiths]

6 medium apples
6 tablespoons granola, chopped nuts, chopped candy-coated chocolates candies, sprinkles, or mini chocolate chips
1 14 oz. pkg. caramels
3 tablespoons water
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Poke a wooden stick in the stem end of each apple. Using 1 tablespoon of topping (granola/nuts/whatever) for each mound, make 6 mounds about 3 inches apart on waxed paper. Combine caramels, water, peanut butter, and cinnamon in a saucepan; stir over low heat for about 20 minutes, or until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Dip each apple in hot caramel mixture and spoon mixture over the apple until completely coated. Hold the apple right side up by the stick for a second, then place it stick side up on one of the mounds of topping. Turn the apple so all the topping sticks to it. Refrigerate for 1 hour until firm.

Variation: Substitute 1/4 cup chocolate chips for peanut butter, chocolate caramels for the regular caramels, and only use 2 tablespoons of water for chocolate-caramel apples.

Graveyard "Cake" [Mar. 25th, 2009|08:01 am]
Halloween Recipes
[mood |cheerfulcheerful]
[music |Voltaire]

Basically just a Dirt Cake with spooky toppings. My mother made it for me one year for my birthday (I was born one week before Halloween, so I've always had Halloween birthdays ^_^).

1 16 oz. pkg. chocolate sandwich cookies (ex. Oreo)
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
2 3.4 oz. pkgs. instant chocolate or vanilla flavor pudding
3 cups milk
1 12 oz. container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Rectangular and oval-shaped cookies, gummy worms, candy corn and pumpkins, plastic creepy-crawlies, etc
Decorator gel

Crush the cookies until they resemble soil. Set aside.
Cream the butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Set aside. Combine the pudding mix and milk until well blended, then fold in whipped topping. Gently fold the cream cheese mixture and pudding mixture together.
To assemble cake, layer 1/3 of the crumbs on the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan followed by half the pudding mixture, half the remaining crumbs, the rest of the pudding mixture, then the remaining cookie crumbs.
Refrigerate overnight. About 30 minutes before serving, decorate w/ assorted toppings to make it look like a graveyard. Use decorator gel to make the cookies look like tombstones (Pepperidge Farm cookies are good for this), stick little candy bats on them, have gummy worms crawling out of the "dirt". The only limit is your imagination ^_^
