As the title infers, I love Halloween and I recently found out that it is celebrated in the UK and that many of my SG family love the holiday as well.

I thought it would be fun to share some recipes and pictures since pretty soon, we'll be hosting or attending Halloween parties and we could use some unique ideas.

I'll start with a dish I found on a website. I brought this dish to parties and it was a favorite with adults. I'll post more later.



Ingredients:
1/3 C. cream cheese, softened
1/4 C. walnuts, chopped semi-fine
20-30 dates, pitted

Instructions: 1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and nuts til well mixed.
2. Gently fill each date with cream cheese/nut mixture (you may have to split the dates slightly). 3. Serve in a halloween theme tray decorated with several rubber roaches (if desired). Label as "Stuffed Roaches," or "Fresh-caught Cockroaches," etc.

Oooh! This is a great idea! A friend has her birthday on Haloween so I'm helping her set up for the party and we were struggling to find new ideas for food. So far the only really original thing I have come across is these amazing mice. Just need to get my hands on some Hershey Kisses!

You can normally get Hershey Kisses in Selfridges food hall, or maybe order them online.

Ingredients:
3 lbs. shrimp, peeled, cooked, deveined
2 small roasted red peppers, julienned
1 green onion, sliced into 2" pieces, then julienned

Gelatin Mixture:
2 1/2 C. chicken broth
1 1/2 tbsp. (1 1/2 envelopes) unflavored gelatin
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 C. fresh lemon juice
1/2 C. tomato paste
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp. honey
1-2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
Pinch salt

Instructions 1. Into a purchased jello brain mold,
layer your shrimp in, tails facing the middle of the brain. It's best if you layer them into the brain mold with the tails facing the middle, according to each "hemisphere" of the brain. This will give you the most realistic look. Tuck the shrimps in close together.
2. Drop bits of roasted pepper and green onion in around the shrimp. These should look like veins and nerves when you're finished.
3. Repeat, alternating between shrimp and vegetables, until you fill your Jello brain mold.
4. Now make the gelatin. In a small saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the unflavored gelatin.
5. Stir in the lemon zest, juice, tomato paste, garlic, honey, cajun seasoning, and a pinch of salt (the amount will depend on how much salt is in your Cajun seasoning-- mine's salty so I don't use much).
6. Pour this mixture over the shrimp in your brain mold, filling to the top. Discard any extra. With a rubber spatula, smooth the top of your shrimp and gelatin to create a smooth surface.
7. Refrigerate until firm, at least several hours.
8. To unmold, set your Jello brain mold in a bowl of hot water for a few seconds. Place a serving tray underneath, then flip your mold over. The brain should pop right out. This is one of the easiest gross Halloween foods to make in advance! 9. Serve with fava beans and a glass of Chianti. (Kidding!)

Oh I just love halloween! I love dressing up!!

Last year I was a psycho nurse! This year I'm going to be a zombie cheerleader - corny I know but I didnt think I could top the nurse so Id have to go the sexy corny route, unless anyone has got any ideas?

Im ordering my cheerleader outfit this week and will shorten it and sex and gore it up, getting a fake 'sliced open neck' thing and white zombie contacts. I rent above a hair dressers and they are doing me a big bouncy cheerleader blow dry and my make up artist will work wonders on my face. I cant wait!

Subscribing to this thread :D I usually wing it come halloween and end up in a last minute dash haha

Just for show last year ( and not to be eaten until wayyyy after you are too drunk to taste anything ) I did green jelly and used pickled onions with raisins in the centre of them to set inside the jelly so it looked like eyeballs :D
 

lychees with a blueberry in the middle also make fab eyeballs! x
