Braaains! Salmon Brain Dip every Zombie would just die for.

Braaains! Salmon Brain Dip every Zombie would just die for.

Really, Halloween is NOT that far away, and if you’re really into Halloween, like we are around here, it just makes sense to start thinking about things early! So, as part of my new “clean up old stuff on Dabbled” series, I realized that while I gave the recipe for this brain dip as part of a post on the food I created for a previous halloween party, I had not actually pulled it out into a post of it’s own.… [ KEEP READING ]

Halloween treat: Bloody Baklava

Halloween treat: Bloody Baklava

I know it’s late for halloween, but I’m filing this away for next year!

For Halloween this year, I tried a new idea, that I had gotten from the most excellent blog, Filth Wizardry.

Halloween Food - Yummy Mummy Hand (HOW TO)

I love my friends! At last week’s pumpkin party, my friend Chad asked what he could bring to my halloween party. I made a few suggestions, including some ideas I had around a mummy arm similar to my Bone Marrow last year. Well, he took those and improved upon them, and has graciously written up how he created his prototype for the party, this really fun Mummy Hand!

Halloween Food – Chocolate Pretzel Creep Fingers

Halloween Food - Chocolate Pretzel Creep Fingers

I’m throwing a Halloween Party Saturday night, so the next few days will be filled with me trying to get everything together. However, I didn’t want to neglect you, dear Dabblers, so I figured I’d let you in on some of the stuff I’m making!

I just finished up a batch of Sweet Sushi, and later I’ll be pulling these Creep Fingers together, along with my Peanut Butter Eyeball truffles.… [ KEEP READING ]
