Last minute Halloween ideas!



Graveyard Chocolate Goodness
Courtesy of Chef Doreen Fang


1 whole                      Chocolate pie (your choice)
20-25                           Oreo cookies – crumbs
1 bag                          Gummy worms
10                                Fake fingers


If you cannot find Oreo cookie crumbs, get 25 cookies, open up each cookie, scrap off the filling and put all the cookies into a food processor and process the cookies till you get a fine crumb.

If you purchased a frozen chocolate pie, allow the pie to thaw first according to the directions on the box.  Pour the cookie crumbs over the top (reserve about ¼ cup), making sure to make a nice layer to create the perfect grave scene on your pie.  Add your gummy worms and fingers, burying them slightly.  Please feel free to decorate with any ghoulish decorations to add more creepiness to your graveyard pie. 

Make sure to warn your guests NOT to eat the fingers…who knows where they have been!  muahahahah






Sweet and Nutty Bloody Popcorn
Recipe courtesy of
Chef Doreen Fang

4 cups                        Popcorn (approximately 1 bag of microwave popcorn)
½ cup             White chocolate chips
½ cup             Caramel (you can buy ready-made caramel to save time)
½ cup             Almonds and pistachios (shelled)
                        Red food coloring
                        Vegetable spray


If using microwave popcorn, make ahead of time and allow popcorn to cool completely. 

In a small microwaveable bowl, add the white chocolate chips and microwave and 15 second intervals, do this three (3) times for a total of 45 seconds.  Stir until smooth.

In a small microwaveable bowl, add the caramel and microwave for 15 seconds three (3) to four (4) times till smooth and slightly runny. 

In a large mixing bowl, spray a light coating of the vegetable oil, then spray a silicon or rubber spatula with vegetable spray as well.  Add the popcorn to bowl.  Using the spatula, get some of the chocolate and drizzle over the popcorn and mix.  Continue to add more chocolate, drizzling and mixing till all the chocolate has been added.  Do the same with the caramel and add the nuts while doing the caramel.  After all the caramel has been added, add dashes of red food coloring and mix popcorn to incorporate the red dye.  Add till you achieve the perfect bloody look in your popcorn treat. 

Allow the white chocolate and caramel to “dry”.  Let it sit out for at least 1-2 hours, uncovered. 

Serve and enjoy this ghoulish sweet treat!

 Happy Halloween everyone!!!
