Halloween Ideas...A roundup of my faves

I know I'm a little early, it's only the first of the month, but gee, you need to start planning all the fun treats you're going to make for Halloween now.

You do, really, you do.

There are all kinds of sweet treats out there, fun stuff you can make but it's really hard to find the not so sweet, AKA, the savoury treats. 

I like sweet, but I can only take so much sugar before I've had enough. 

So, here are some ideas for the not sweet side of you.
Spider Cake and Spider Eggs

A few years ago I learned how to make a Bologna Cake and have been having fun with it ever since.    And then I decided I could do a fun twist on it and make it a Spider Cake for Halloween.
I took first prize in an informal contest with this.   And then had fun watching people eat it. 

The cake was surrounded by Spider Eggs, cause, gee, you can't have a momma spider without a bunch of babies.

And they are dead easy to do.
Get it?
Dead Easy?
It's your favourite deviled egg recipe with spiders made of Black Olives on top,  fun and tasty.

And then there are my Tate's Hell Deviled Eggs.

For those who want a shot of hell when they bite into an deviled egg.   OMG, these are so good.    I've been know to hard cook an egg and just make one up for myself.
I think I'm addicted to hot.
Could be a worse thing to be addicted to.

I love dips, you might have noticed that in this blog, and what could be more fun than this dip.
Well, it's actually two dips in one.  Green Spider Dip

And piping a spider web over top, well, gee, spiders and Halloween, hello?

To finish off the roundup, you need a cracker and honestly, these are the best cheesy crackers I've ever made.
And you can make them into little Spicy Witchy Fingers.

Witch is what I called them.

Sorry, had to do it.

And just in case you're a little bummed out that I didn't make anything sweet, well, I've also been known to serve Mice and Crunchy Eyeballs for dessert.

So there you have it, a few ideas for your Halloween perusal.

If you have any more great ideas, let me know, K?
