These Recipes Are Scary-Good


Halloween today seems to be as much for grownups as it is for kids. And us big folks, well, we like to munch on things beyond the sweet treats.

Don’t get me wrong, we still like our candy—especially the chocolate kind. But we like to have Halloween fun with all kinds of tasty foods nowadays. That includes not only cupcakes and goodies, but also sandwiches, pizza, you name it.

Halloween is almost upon us, and we expect there will be a frightening amount of partying beginning this weekend, and parties call for all kinds of foods and snacks.

So we pried the cobwebs off our Halloween recipe archives, created some scary new ones down in the laboratory, and collected the best of them here for you to pick and choose from. No tricks here, just lots of fun and tasty things for treating the little ghouls and ghosts—and the goofy little goblin in all of us.
