Scouring the interwebs for kooky, funny, weird, scary or disgusting Halloween recipes is an October guilty pleasure. There are so many fun ideas to try for yourself, adapt to your own needs, and experiment with.
Over the years, I have had some wacky Halloween fun, including
- Haunted Halloween Ghost meringue cookies
- Cheesy Egg Mummy
- Smoked Trout Pate Spider Bites
- Green Alien Guts
- Maggots on Meat
- Shrek’s Dirty Q-Tips
- Monster Marshmallows
- Gory Green Monster Eyeball Dip
- Halloween Deviled Spider Eggs
- Witches’ Digits
Let’s add some cookies, and this year they’re practical. They’ll help you use up your leftover Halloween candy.
Go wild, trick-or-treaters. Go out and hunt down the big game, and bring it home to me. I know what to do with it.
I ran across this recipe from Traci, who writes the food blog Burnt Apple, out of Utah. She’s on a mission to make recipes over into healthy, great tasting budget-friendly meals, a plan I can really get behind. She’s challenged by 3 kids and a husband with diabetes, so she tries to make meals work on many levels.
I was tempted by her Monster Eye Tacos, which look chilling for Halloween, and her Glow in the Dark Drinks (where did I put my black light?), but I must have had cookies on the mind, because these Leftover Candy Cookies stuck firmly in my mind.
I was assigned her blog as part of Secret Recipe Club, a sort of secret-Santa project for food bloggers. We are to quietly explore and cook for a month from this secret blog, and today is our reveal day of the recipe we have chosen to present.
Thanks, Traci, for a delicious month of reading and cooking!
