Now, after you have sent the invitations, you have to think on a menu for your Halloween dinner. It must be something tasty, something special. You can choose a creative theme: food featuring vampires, pumpkins, or anything else that you think is scary enough.

To plan your menu , you can search on-line for some spooky recipes like “spaghetti and eyeballs” for a Ghoulish Themed Dinner, try to make some punches like the ones from for a Pumpkin Theme, or prepare really spooky dishes with recipes from

Something spooky...

Eerie Eyeballs

Yields approximately 9 dozen bite-sized eyeballs

3 oz lemon gelatin (can be sugar-free)
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup pineapple juice
8 oz cream cheese (can be lowfat/Neufchatel)
1 cup mayonnaise (can be fat-free)

Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1 cup water in double boiler, add marshmallows and stir to melt. Remove from heat. Add pineapple juice and cream cheese. Beat until well blended. Cool slightly. Fold in mayo. If you have a truffle candy mold or round ice cube trays, pour the mixture in the molds and leave to set in the fridge. Otherwise pour into a deep ceramic dish and chill until thickened or firm enough for scooping into eyeballs.

Something spicy...

Decayed Corpse Chips with Entrail Salsa

blue corn tortilla chips

This isn't so much a recipe as it is a creative display. Arrange the blue corn chips in a coffin in the shape of a long-dead corpse. The natural blue corn chips have almost a dusky shade of brown in them that hints of decayed skin. Serve with a nice blood-red chunky salsa as accompanying entrails.
