“Scary” Food & Treat Ideas

"Kids Halloween Party."

Trick or treat? Both! With scary foods and treats galore.

Have an up-coming Halloween party and don’t know what to make to feed your guests?  No worries!  Here are five scary foods and treats that are sure to monster rock the house down!

Scary Pear Heads:

"Ghost Lollipops."

Using Pears as your main ingredient makes for a fun and spooky treat!


  • 8 firm ripe Seckel pears
  • 1/2 pound organic white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 ounce semisweet organic chocolate, coarsely chopped


  1. Remove the stem from the pears. Using a wooden skewer, make a hole in the stem end of each pear. Insert a lollipop stick in each hole.
  2. In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, melt white chocolate. Let stand until cool. Dip the pears in the chocolate, turning to coat. Stand the pears up in a piece of foam or oasis. Let stand until set, about 40 minutes.
  3. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, melt the semisweet chocolate. Let cool for 5 minutes. Fit a small pastry bag with a #4 tip, and fill with melted semisweet chocolate. Pipe chocolate onto pears to create facial features. Let stand until set, about 10 minute

Be sure to use chocolate with Fair Trade on the label!  For more fun recipes like this, check out Martha Stewart online!

Swamp Juice:

"Swamp Juice."

This spooky drink will creep out any party a delicious way!

  • 1/2 cup small tapioca pearls (found in the baking aisle of most grocery stores)
  • 100% natural food coloring
  • 4 tablespoons organic sugar
  1. MAKE THE EGGS: Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add the tapioca pearls. Reduce the heat slightly and boil the pearls, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. COLOR THE EGGS: Divide the pearls, with the remaining water, between two bowls. Add 4 drops of food coloring (we used 3 drops of yellow and 1 drop of green in one bowl, and 4 drops of blue in the other) and 2 tablespoons of sugar to each bowl. Stir the mixtures, then allow them to sit uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and rinse the pearls with cold water.
  3. ASSEMBLE THE DRINK: Spoon 2 tablespoons of pearls into each glass and drop in a gummy fish. Fill the glasses with seltzer water, then add a splash of lemonade. Place a gummy worm around a spoon as shown.
