    Halloween Recipes

    Thought I start a thread with a few recipes I have hanging around, feel free to add any you may have!

    Easy Caramel Corn

    3 quarts popping corn
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup corn syrup
    1 stick of butter
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Put popcorn in a heavy paper bag. Melt butter in a saucepan and mix together sugar, syrup, and salt. Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and stir well. Pour into paper bag and stir with a wooden spoon. Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Take out and shake well. Cook for another 1 1/2 minutes. Shake bag again and pour into a large container. Serve in paper baggies that kids can decorate.

    Caramel Apples

    12 apples (plus 12 popsicle sticks)
    4 14-ounce packages of caramels
    8 tablespoons heavy cream
    crushed nuts

    Rinse apples, pat dry, and remove apple stems and insert a popsicle stick into stem of each apple. Combine the cream and caramels in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until caramel is melted and smooth. Dip the apples into the caramel until completely covered. Let the extra caramel drip back into the saucepan. Roll in crushed nuts. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place apples upside down on waxed paper and refrigerate.

    Eyeball Potion

    8 oz Frozen whipped topping
    thawed blueberries or raisins
    1 1/2 c Boiling water
    1 large package gelatin, any red flavor
    1 cup cold water
    ice cubes

    Using a small ice-cream scoop, place 2 scoops whipped topping into each of 10 dessert dishes for "eyeballs." Place a blueberry or raisin in each scoop for the "pupil." Freeze 30 minutes, or until firm. Meanwhile, stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl at least two minutes until completely dissolved. Mix cold water and ice cubes to make 2-1/2 cups.
    Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened.

    Remove any remaining ice. Pour about 1/2 cup gelatin around the two "eyeballs" in each dish, leaving the top of the "eyeballs" exposed.
    Refrigerate 1-1/2 hours, or until firm.
