 Halloween Popcorn Balls

1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
4-6 quarts (16-24 cups) popped corn (make sure to remove unpopped kernels)
Black and/or orange food coloring

Divide popped corn evenly and place each half in a medium-sized, heatproof bowl sprayed with non-stick spray.

Combine 1/4 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup corn syrup in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil.

Pour in 1/2 can condensed milk. Return to a boil and let boil for five minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract and black food coloring.

Pour hot caramel over popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon.

Grease hands with butter and form mixture into balls.

Place formed balls on a non-stick cookie sheet or wax paper to cool.

Repeat steps 2-7, using orange food coloring instead of black.

Once cooled, stack popcorn balls in a festive bowl or place in Halloween-themed favor bags and tie closed with a ribbon.

Makes 25-30 balls

 Halloween Pizzas

Pinned Image

Recipe for Owl
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 naan or other flatbread (mine is 8 1/2-inches x 11-inches, same as notebook paper)
1/2 cup shredded Italian six-cheese blend
2 slices onion (eyes)
12 slices pepperoni (wings and eyes)
2 black olives, sliced (eyes)
red bell pepper (beak)
green bell pepper (eyes)
yellow bell pepper (ears)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread pizza sauce over naan, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with cheese in the shape of an owl. Use 5 slices of pepperoni per wing, placing pepperoni on each side of body, slightly overlapping slices. For the eyes, place onion ring slices on face. Place a pepperoni slice on the center of each onion slice. Top each with half (open end) an olive, placing a small piece of green bell pepper in the center of each olive. Cut 1 triangle from the red bell pepper for the beak, and 2 triangles from the yellow bell pepper for the "ears". Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes (on pizza stone or baking sheet), or until heated and cheese melts. For a crisper pizza, bake 12-15 minutes.

Recipe for Frankenstein
1/2 cup pesto (I used Classico traditional basil)
1/2 cup Alfredo sauce (I used Bertolli)
1/2 cup shredded Italian six-cheese blend
6-8 slices of pepperoni (hair and mouth)
2 onion slices (eyes)
6 olives (scars, eyes, nuts)
green bell pepper (nose, bolts)
red bell pepper (nose)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix pesto and alfredo sauce togeteher and spread over naan, leaving a border of at least 1/2-inch. Sprinkle cheese over the sauce. Cut a triangle out of each pepperoni slice and place across the top of head for the hair. Use leftover pieces of pepperoni (or extra pepperoni slices) to form the mouth. Cut ears (the bell pepper is naturally "ear" shaped, when sliced) from the green bell pepper, and cut two small pices for the bolts, at each bottom corner. Cut a piece of the red bell pepper in the shape of a nose and place in the center of the face. Slice two olives in half. Place one piece in each eye, and one piece at the end of each bolt. Slice a couple of olives into slivers and place them to look like scars.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes (on stoneware* or baking sheet), or until heated and cheese melts. For a crisper pizza, bake 12-15 minutes.

Head--lettuce leaves, sliced olives, veggie dip in a small bowl(RANCH DIP LOL)
Body--celery, baby carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, cherry or grape tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers

Arrange the veggies on a platter in the shape of a skeleton, top with an appropriate sized bowl of veggie dip for the head. (I'm sure your presentation will look better than mine. Note to self: skip the waxed paper next time. I'm not really sure WHY I used it in the first place.)

Here's what you do...get out your biggest bowl and dump in
cheese crackers,
salted peanuts,
and pretzel squares.
Then the sweet stuff:
Reese's candy bits,
caramel corn,
honey nut cheerios,
cocoa puffs,
candy corn,
and mellowcreme pumpkins.
That's it!
The sky's the limit!
divide the mix up into jars, tie a ribbon around each one and they're ready to give as a fall treat to someone .

In a food processor, puree the spinach and hummus.
  1. To make the boiled-egg ghosts, cut slits and insert black-olive facial features. Use an edible marker to turn crackers into tombstones.

  2. Mound the dip on a tray and top it with veggie trees, a pretzel fence, boiled-egg ghosts, and cracker tombstones.
