Creepy Gross Halloween Recipes For Spooky Fun
I also love making food that looks horrifying. It’s just… FUN. These are great for kids parties, OR adult parties, as these ideas (baring one) have a pretty good ICK factor. A few of these Creepy Gross Halloween Recipes, REALLY aren’t for the faint of heart!
I have to start with my absolute favorite Creepy Gross Halloween Recipe!
Witchy Finger Cookies
With an almond shortbread cookie, some slivered almonds, red icing and a few mini chocolate chips, you can make some pretty impressive cookies that ACTUALLY look like fingers. And it’s not hard. I won’t lie… it’s somewhat time consuming, so if you’re looking for a quickie… check one of the other ideas. But the cookies are delish and I promise you a reaction people will remember year after year!!
Check out the tutorial I wrote last year right here on the Family Focus Blog: HERE
Gross-Out Intestines Pastry
Wow. Yeah. These are intense looking. I tried it and it came out amazing and yummy. I got this idea from the WannaBite website, who says that even some of the adults wouldn’t take a bite… which I could see. I am 100 percent making this Creepy Gross Halloween Recipe again for Halloween night.
We’re basically talking puff pastry ripped up, rolled up with some chocolate (or whatever), curled into a dish with a little red/blue food coloring paint.
You can find a great tutorial on this site including a bunch of great pictures:
This is an easy and fun one for any family. A quick throw together. Take any pizza (sure, you could make your own, but you could also just buy a plain frozen pizza), then get some salami, fresh mozzarella, slice it up, toss a few on top, and include a black olive slice.
Easy-peasy, fun, and the silly type of gross that still holds a bit of an ICK factor.

Bananas and Clementine Oranges
Looking for healthy because you’re overloaded on sugar? Check this out:
Yeah… bananas with tiny chocolate chips for eyes/mouth (or just eyes) And yeah, you could us raisins, but come on… a little more chocolate won’t hurt! Personally, I sliced them in half length-wise, stuck a popsicle stick in the bottom, and popped them in the freezer! Yum!
And then clementine oranges with a tiny piece of celery as a pumpkin stem. I want to make those darn things every day they’re so cute.
Not scary folks. Even the ghosts, just not scary any way you cut it. But adorable, simple and creative enough to make list anyway.
Great tutorial from DailyLeisure.com she even gouged out holes for the chocolate chip eyes!
Band-Aid Graham Crackers
Graham Crackers + white cookie frosting + red gel frosting = super unique, quick (and cheap!) party idea. I’ll be honest. I haven’t tested this one, because I just don’t see any way this could fail.
Graham crackers? Good. Icing? Good? Crackers that look like Band-Aids??? GOOOOOOD.
(I do suggest using cookie frosting for the white part though, it’ll dry harder)
I’m happy to credit me finding this recipe to: Devilish Delists and Sinfully Good Treats! At this link: HERE

After a week of all kinds of horrible looking foods going through my kitchen, these are my top five Creepy Gross Halloween Recipes, from benign Band-Aids to the terrifying Witchy Fingers and from the adorable Clementine pumpkins to stomach turning intestine pastries, I am confident there is a Halloween treat here for everyone!

Kids Halloween Party Tips For A Spooktacular Time
Karen Woodall says
The eyeball pizza is great! My kids will love it! Thanks for sharing this funny idea!
As much as we love Halloween, I think the intestines might be over the top for my family. The eyeball pizza and the band-aid graham crackers will work, though. Going to have to try one or both.
Erika Wassall says
Thrilled both of you found ones you like. Thanks for stopping by. (and yeah, the intestines are INTENSE! lol)
So far the eye-ball pizza seems to be the favorite. Any other voters???
Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says
Those intestines are so gross, but so cool at the same time.
Jenna Wood says
I don’t think I could do the edible intestines, but spaghetti as ‘brains’ was popular growing up. I’m more of a fan of cute Halloween food, rather than gory.
These are some great Halloween treats! I would love to make the edible intestines they look scary and yummy!
Deborah A. says
I love that eyeball pizza! Not sure my kids would go for it, but it’s pretty awesome.
Dawn Lopez says
Those are some pretty cool Halloween treats. Honestly, those intestine pastries are going to give me nightmares. 😉
Chelley @ A is For Adelaide says
I love these ideas! We are making eyeball pizza for Halloween dinner!
That eyeball pizza is awesome! I might actually have to try that on Saturday!
Janis @MommyBlogExpert says
What fun Halloween party food. That eyeball pizza is particularly clever and I bet would be a real hit with kids.
OMGosh! The Band-Aid Graham Crackers are super cute and so creative! I’ll definitely be making those for my son’s party tomorrow, thanks!
Amy Desrosiers says
I think these treats are all super creepy! The bandages one is so gross!
Really cool Halloween treats. I really like the spooky pizza, too fun!
