These favors are always a hit with children and adults too. They get a kick out of receiving the favor because of the "novelty" of the use of the glove.
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!

This is a simple Halloween project you and your kids can do together. They make a super treat for home or a class at school. Simply make brownies, following the directions on the package. Allow them to cool and then use a cookie cutter to cut out ghost shapes, as opposed to cutting them in squares.
Set the brownie ghosts on a plate and then sprinkle them with confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) to make them white. They were a big hit at our house!

My husband's favorite holiday is Halloween. He loves decorating our house and our yard, But the best to him is all the candy he gets to give out. (and eat!)
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.
For round pattern, pipe chocolate in 5 or 6 circles around top of cookie. Pull the point of a wooden pick across chocolate circles from the center to the outer edge. Repeat 8 or 10 times, spacing evenly across top of cookie.
For linear pattern, pipe chocolate in parallel lines, about 1/4-inch apart, across top of cookie. Pull the point of a wooden pick diagonally across lines. Let stand at room temperature until chocolate is firm. Yield: 6 dozen
A quick way to dress up your snack table at a Halloween party is to make a cheese ball pumpkin jar.
Dress up your drinks for your next Halloween party.

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...

There is a site called the http://mistycauldron.com They have a recipe's page with some interesting ones.
How about Maggot Burgers and Bones and Blood? Both are gross but tasty:
Here is a fun recipe. And they really do look like eyeballs!
Dried apple rings
1) For each eyeball, flatten 1 dried apple ring with the palm of your hand.
2) Slice a dried apricot through the middle so that you end up with two circular halves. Press a half, sticky side down, onto the center of an apple ring, covering the hole.
3) For pupils, use kitchen scissors to cut a raisin in two, and press a half, sticky side down, onto the apricots.
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.
Rinse each latex glove out completely. Fill each with water and tie a knot at the end (you may want to fill it not quite full and lay it on it's back so that the fingers aren't so big you can't fit the olives on the fingers). Place in the freezer, let freeze completely. Just before you want the chilling hands to be presented, with a knife cut the latex glove off the ice hand.
Fill a bowl partially full with ice cubes and place both ice hands inside, using the cubes to hold them in place. Place an olive on each finger and put the rest of the olives in the bowl.
