Fill a latex glove with water, juice or soda. Carefully tie the end closed (a bit of string or a binder clip is good for this) and freeze. When frozen solid, remove the glove and float in your punch at the party.
Made up a batch of biscuits following your favorite recipe or using a mix. Shape spiders by creating a golf ball sized "body" and then roll out thin ropes of the dough to form the legs. Arrange on a baking sheet and lightly brush with milk or beaten egg. If you want, you can further decorate your spiders with raisins, poppy seeds, sesame seeds or chopped nuts. You can use aluminum foil rolls under the legs to hold them up during baking. Bake following you recipe or package directions watching to make sure that smaller items are not getting too brown.
Wild Worms and Eyes
This is simply spaghetti and meatballs. Cook an unusual noodle that you do not normally serve (maybe linguini or angle hair). When done toss in your favorite red pasta sauce and place on serving platter. Add warm meatballs and serve. You can make this spookier by tossing the noodles in a dark green pesto sauce or even in a creamy white Alfredo sauce.
Rice Cereal Creatures
Now I usually shy away from doing "sweet" party food as there is so much candy around for Halloween, but if you want a fun way that kids can help with a party this is the best. Make a batch of rice cereal and marshmallow squares, only don't press them into a pan. Instead ask the kids to help you and create goblins, trolls, snakes, anything they want. Use small candies or frosting to add details such as red eyes or stripes. Place on foil lined baking sheet and refrigerate until firm. These make wonderful items for centerpieces on your buffet or Halloween table.
