Ghoulish Goodies: Edible Fingers and Eyeballs

It’s Halloween. Time to get creepy in your kitchen. With a little creativity, traditional party recipes can turn into devilish dishes perfect for a Halloween buffet.

Here are a few monstrously delicious recipes to make for your little ghosts and goblins this Halloween:



1 can refrigerated breadstick dough

1 pepperoni stick

Dried rosemary


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Separate breadsticks and place on greased cookie sheet.

Cut pepperoni into fingernail shapes and press into dough.

Cut knuckle marks into “fingers” and sprinkle with rosemary to create a hairy-knuckle look.

Bake according to package directions (typically less than 20 minutes).



3 tablespoons chocolate syrup

Cold club soda, seltzer or ginger ale

3 scoops (about 3/4 cup) orange sherbet

Twizzlers or your favorite brand of red licorice


Combine syrup with a small amount of club soda in 16-ounce soda glass.

Add sherbet; fill glass with club soda.

Garnish with candy.

Serve immediately.



3 ounces lemon JELL-O

1 cup hot water

1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

1 cup pineapple juice

1 8-ounce package cream cheese

1 cup heavy cream, whipped

1 cup mayonnaise

Red food coloring


Dissolve lemon JELL-O in 1 cup water in a double boiler, add marshmallows and stir to melt. Remove from heat.

Add pineapple juice and cream cheese. Mix until well blended. Cool slightly. Fold in whipped cream and mayonnaise. Chill until firm.

Using a melon baller, scoop mixture into balls.
Use red food coloring to paint on blood-shot lines on your JELL-O eyeballs.
