When ladyfingers aren't spooky enough, we give you the perfect Halloween dish: bloody witch fingers! The recipe is simple. Bake finger-shaped cookies with green food coloring; take them out of the oven and glue almonds on them with strawberry jam. If you ate too much sugar already, try chicken fingers with ketchup and pepper nails instead.
Give your child a break from all the candy with this great idea made out of veggies! Just add a healthy dip and they’ll keep asking for more!
Here is the perfect recipe to use the pumpkin flesh dug from your jack-o-lantern.
- 1 pumpkin
- 3 chopped potatoes
- 2 carrots
- 1 sliced onion
- 1 sliced leek
- 12 cups (3 L) chicken broth
- 1 cup (250 ml) light cream
- Curcuma or nutmeg
- Variant: add a pear or an apple
Empty your pumpkin and put away the seeds. Leave enough flesh to have a solid bowl. Cook the vegetables in the broth. Place it in a mixer with the cream and seasonings. Put your soup back into the pumpkin and voilà! Tasty and cute.
Make a good fruit jelly and place jelly worms in it before it hardens. It will make it look like worms are escaping from the jelly bowl. You can even make the worms yourself by attaching straws together and filling them with a jelly preparation. You can free them by pouring cold water in the straw.
Children will love these little mummies made with sausages and Pillsbury crescents. Add two drops of ketchup for the eyes and bake them 12 to 15 minutes at 375°F. Once they're ready to eat, children can dip them in ketchup that will look like blood.
Play with various ingredients (tomato sauce, cheese, olives, etc.) to wrap your mummy. I bet they will all look different and scary enough for Halloween, and they're guaranteed to be delicious!
