I'm throwing a Halloween party next month and am looking for some unique theme food ideas. It is actually an adult party (my little one is only 9months so he doesn't get that kind of food yet anyways!) so pretty much anything goes. Shoot me some ideas ladies! Thanks!

ok, you can make hands, roll out a sugar cooky recipe or bought kind, trim around your hand-shape, bake and frost with tinted frosting, green, use almonds for fingernails, 'draw' scars on with tube frosting.



you can make sloppy joe sandwitches, or franken-steins (hot dogs with chili sauce) all kinds of great stuff...jello with eyes (apricot halves) cow patties...simple melt chocolate add mini marshmallows, chopped nuts, and place on wax paper until hardened. those are great fun. Have a wonderful party!

Kitty Litter Cake.

This clever Halloween cake recipe, that frightfully resembles a well used kitty litter box, is actually delicious, despite its appearance. For the proper presentation, use a brand new (and definitely unused) plastic cat litter box and spoon it onto plates with a new (NEVER used) pooper scooper.



Be warned, generally this cake will not get eaten much. People just can't seem to get back the appearance, no matter how good it may taste. Go figure.



Ingredients: 1 spice or German chocolate cake mix

1 white cake mix

2 large packages vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared

1 large package vanilla sandwich cookies

green food coloring

12 small Tootsie Roll candies



1 new kitty litter pan

1 new kitty litter pan liner

1 new pooper scooper

Instructions: Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).



Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.



Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix until completely colored.



When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.



Line a new, clean kitty litter box. Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture into the litter box.



Put 3 unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything -- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.



Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top. For the coup de gras take one Tootsie Roll and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!



Further notes:

I had a reader write in saying this recipe only needed half the amount of pudding. I personally liked the cake with the amount given in this recipe. But feel free to use this as a loose guideline, use more or less as you see the need. Also, since the layer of cookies (with the chloropyll green specks, covers the top, you could really use any flavor or flavors or cakes underneath.



Last but not least, you can also opt not to crumble the cakes, but rather layer them in the pan with the layers of pudding in between (much like you would layer a trifle into a trifle dish), sprinkle the top layer of pudding with a heavy layer of crumbled cookies. Same effect, different texture entirely to the dessert.
