Zombie Brains Jello Shots Oooh, here's a perfect treat for an adult Halloween party- jello shots in the shape of brains! This "cocktail" involves quite a bit of preparation, so get started early and don't drink until your shots are set. Yes, it takes some work, but when your guests see what you see in the picture above, it will all be worth it. The outside of the "brain" is a mixture of gelatin, vodka and flavored liqueurs, and sweetened condensed milk to give it an opaque look. Inside the brain is a sweet liquid concoction of raspberries, liqueur, and sugar. Once the jello shots are set, you bring them out with as much ceremony as you like, and cut into them to reveal the inner raspberry blood. Using a surgical instrument is preferred. If anyone gets the heebie-jeebies, just let them know how sweet these shots are. You'll find the recipe and complete instructions at WikiHow.And since you now have a brain mold, why not try some Cake Ball Brains for dessert? #jelloshot #food #brain #alcohol

Halloween Cheesy SkullsThis look like such a simple and delicious recipe, you might be tempted to eat it year-round! The basic ingredients are meat, cheese, and bread that gives you a Mexican-flavor pizza or baked ravioli. You'll find the full recipe here. The thing that makes it perfect for a Halloween party is the skull-shaped baking pan, which you can find at many outlets online if you can't get one at a store near you. The payoff is the terrifying vision of a diner pulling the skull apart to dip it into marinara sauce. You can get a similar effect by drizzling the sauce over the skull. Bon appetit! #food #skull

Eyeballs for Your Cocktails An easy way to turn regular food or drinks into Halloween fare is to add eyeballs. Now, we really don't want to collect any kind of real eyeballs, but creative folks have found ways around that. Instructables user makendo gives us a couple of different ways to make eyeballs, formulated to use in cocktails, although they are not restricted to drinks. Your mileage may vary. The disembodied eyes you see above are from the Zombie Martini Cocktail recipe. They are carved from small radishes with pimiento-stuffed olives for the iris and pupil. It is important to leave the root end to signify the optic nerve. These are best made fresh so that our guests can munch on the eyeballs after downing the Zombie Martini Cocktail. Another cocktail eyeball is sweeter, meant to garnish a kamikaze with cranberry juice, but they are probably delicious on their own. The ingredients are canned peeled lychees and cranberries. He posted the instructions for making both of these and the accompanying cocktails at Instructables. (Images credit makendo)#eyeball #food #cocktail #cocktailgarnish

Witch Finger Cookies with Red Velvet Hot ChocolateDomestic Gothess brings us two Halloween recipes that will spark up any party! These witch's fingers are shortbread cookies, but the appearance makes them downright ghoulish. The fingernails are blanched almonds, and the overall look is enhanced with some cinnamon for dirt and food coloring for blood. These would be good with hot chocolate, but for a Halloween effect, make that hot chocolate red! But this hot chocolate isn't just colored red. Domestic Gothess came up with a recipe that's not only blood red, but has the taste of red velvet cake.Red velvet is vanilla with a hint of chocolate and a tangy flavour from the buttermilk. I thought that adding buttermilk to the hot chocolate might cause it to curdle, so I used a little cream cheese instead to add that classic hint of tanginess; it tastes very much like red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!The red velvet hot chocolate can be altered to be thick enough for dipping your cookies into or thinned to your own taste. Read how to make both of these Halloween treats at Domestic Gothess.​#food #partytreat #witchfinger #cookie #hotchocolate #cocoa #witch #blood #redvelvet #cake
