Last Halloween I made these Shrunken Heads in Cider that I saw on Martha’s show. They were surprisingly easy to make!
Peel the apples, cut them in half, cut out faces with melon ballers and paring knives, put in some acidulated water, dry off, then bake in a low oven (250F) for 90 minutes. Add some cloves for a decorative touch but do not make the same mistake I did. Put the heads in the cider right before your guests come. I did it too early and they turned into mush!

Disney also has a Creepy Cuisine page with lots of ideas. The Food Network is also sharing cute and creepy ideas: Eat, Drink and Be Scary.

I’m planning to make my brain panna cotta in pomegranate blood sauce again 🙂 And I have a skull mold for ice this year! I will absolutely check out your links for more ideas. I think that penicillin pizza is on the menu too…
We’re in France for Halloween so we are having our party this weekend. It’s fun to show people from other countries our goofy American Hween traditions. The kids are freezing plastic spiders in into the ice cubes and pretending orange soda is pumpkin juice. I’m making a Hween themed frost-your-own cupcake bar. And we’ll teach friends from Estonia and the Faroe Islands how to carve a Jack-o-Lantern and roast pumpkin seed. I think I throw a few of your apple skulls into the Bobbing for Apples bucket! Thanks for the ideas.
