A great treat for a Halloween potluck.
Total Time: 40 Minutes
Open glove and put a piece of corn candy into the tip of each finger. These are the "fingernails". Fill the gloves with cooked and cooled popcorn. Tie with colorful yarn and put spider ring on one finger.
You can buy a package of 100 of these gloves at the Dollar Tree. I apologize for not having the candy corn and spider ring on the one I did hurriedly today to give you the idea of the finished product. The most difficult part is getting the popcorn down into the finger parts, but well worth the reaction of those who receive them!

I have been collecting Halloween treat recipes for many years. Some of these are from parents of children that my kids went to school with and some from their teachers. Some recipe are from Mrs. Julia Kenyon who gave me her Halloween Popcorn Ball recipe that she made for 30 odd years for all the neighborhood children right before she died. Others have come from the parents of my grandchildren's friends. I hope you enjoy them all.

My kids are having a Halloween party this year. I was hoping that someone might have some gruesome, gory, or creepy food recipes. I have looked at several sites but it seems that most have the same ones over and over again...

Does anyone know where to get the bowls used for the pretzel candies? They are white and one says BOO and the other says EEK.
I bought them at Fred Meyer a few years ago.
If you can't find them, you could easily create your own with some plain ceramic cups and ceramic paint. We crafters do things like this all the time.
I'm having a Halloween party and I have the decorations set but I need a little help on ideas with the food. I have eyeball ice cubes and I'm putting little plastic spiders on toothpicks but what else can I do? Thanks!

A few years ago I made a fun dessert for my husband's Halloween party at his work. It was called "Roadkill something ". It used cherry/raspberry pie filling and was similar to a cobbler type dessert, and looked a bit disgusting like something squished on the road; but got excellent compliments on its tastiness. Now I have a need for it again and can't find the recipe. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
