Halloween Related Post No. 1
Greetings, ghouls and goblins! I haven’t written in quite some time (hell-O, last semester of college!) so I’m here with the first of MANY Halloween related posts. As this is my favorite made-up holiday of all time, I decided to break it down into a few posts because there are so many wonderful facets of Halloween that simply cannot be contained in one post!!!111!111!
Tonight we’ll delve into just a few of my favorite Halloween inspired recipes that will be a treat for the eyes and the mouth. Hopefully. Did that come off as too sexual? Okay, onward!
Internet, let it be known that I am huge fan of food and librarians; as well as The Food Librarian. A few years ago she came out with a wonderful Candy Corn Jello Bundt recipe (this girl loves her bundts, and SO DO I). But guys. I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly: it’s jello; when it’s sliced it looks just like candy corn. Vundahful! Layered jello (and candy corn, coincidentally) is one of my favorite things in the world – anyone who doesn’t love jello must be either crazy or a vegan.

Another one of my foodie favorites is Bakerella, whose been featured on this blog before. She comes up with the most creative confectioneries – and certainly does not shy away from arachnophobia - ERGO: Brownie Spider Bites!
Her work looks so amazingly time-consuming, but well worth the effort I’m sure. In fact I don’t think I’d be able to eat one.. just admire them from afar. (NOPE I WOULD EAT THEM ALL).

Lastly we have an old favorite – with a twist. Like, literally. Well, still figuratively, but literally in the way in which you would like, go to a bartender and ask them to make you a martini with a twist. You know, I never actually figured out what that means. Let me not be lazy and look that up for you guys while you take a gander at this:

This recipe has got to be my favorite so far; and no, not because I’m a lush. Do you remember those lame (awesome) Halloween parties where someone blindfolds you and leads you to a bowl of peeled grapes, and when you put your hands in there and squish them around, said person would then exclaim that you’re touching a bowl of eyeballs? Well, this is that, except there’s ALCOHOL involved. You simply place a blueberry or cranberry into the hole of a lychee and viola! Instant eyeball garnish. Delicious! What won’t Martha Stewart come up with?
