Quick and Easy Recipes – Halloween Edition

Halloween. A time for drinking, provocative costumes and YUMMY treats!

And since Halloween falls on a Wednesday, why not throw a little study break soiree?! (or maybe just a soiree- studying is so overrated)

so get on your slutty nurse/baseball player/ninja turtle costume and get into the kitchen!

Gummy Worm Ice Cubes (from Martha Stewart).

Sure this idea was made more kids but who says we can’t spruce up our vodka tonics with these creepy cubes?

What you Need:

Gummy Worms

Ice Cube Tray


(and a selection of alcohol (or non alcoholic) beverages and mixers.


Breed gummy worms in ice and infest a cold Halloween drink. Put the worms in an ice-cube tray, letting them stick out of the top and sprawl over the edges, and fill tray with water; freeze. Add cubes to a clear beverage, and watch as kids squirm with delight.

Berry Scary Martini (from Martha Stewart)

Serves 1

1 cup ice

1 ounce black vodka

2 ounces cherry juice

Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish

Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.

Spider Cupcakes (from allrecipes)

What You Need:

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix

1 pound black shoestring licorice

1 (16 ounce) can white frosting

48 pieces candy corn

48 cinnamon red hot candies

1/4 cup orange decorator sugar


Prepare cupcakes according to package directions. Let cool completely.

Cut licorice into 3 inch sections. Working with one or two cupcakes at a time, so the frosting doesn’t set before decorating, frost the cupcakes with the white frosting. Insert licorice pieces into the outer edges of the cupcakes to make the legs of the spider, 3 legs on each side (4 takes up too much space). Place two pieces of candy corn on the front of the cupcake for fangs and use two red hots as eyes. Sprinkle with decorator sugar. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.

and if going all Martha isn’t your thing? Pizza, Beer and Candy corn should do the trick!

Happy Halloween!
