Satan is spawning! This Satan’s Spawn is a wonderful and creepy take on the deviled egg Sriracha gel is used as a bloody amniotic fluid and the little Satan fetuses are piped into the egg casing. Totally gross and amazingly delicious.
Many many years ago I received this rubber Devil in a gift basket from Screemers at work. I loved this adorable red monster so much that I held on to him and decided to work him into my costume one year. It was such a hit and I took home the first prize in a costume contest.
These deviled eggs were the next inspiration. I developed these so they look super creepy and there are many that have refused to eat them – after all, they aren’t for the faint of heart.
Over the years I have made these several times and this year I decided to remake the recipe and take better photos and video. It was absolutely a great co-incidence that my BFF decided to throw the best ever Halloween party so I got to dress up and make these delicious eggs as well. Make sure to watch the video as well for scenes from the party!
I’m crazy about Halloween – every year I love to think about spooky recipe ideas, but I realize that many people just want something super easy and quick to grace their Halloween table, and this recipe will do just that! Chicken Weiners are carved to look like fingers, wrapped in puff pastry bandages and painted with Sriracha blood. Simple. Easy. Creepy
Happy Halloween to all friends of Kravings Food Adventures. Next to Christmas, Halloween is one of my favorite celebrations. There’s all the cute little kiddy costumes and then there are the fun adult costumes that make us feel like kids again … and let’s not forget the food! At this time of year, I love to make really creepy looking food. I get a great kick out of people saying ‘eww that’s gross’ or ‘that’s nasty’. As a food creator, you never want to hear those type of comments 🙂 except on Halloween 🙂
In this recipe I’m making Vegan Zombie Eyeballs. This can easily be made with milk as well, but the gelatin I’m using is made out of seaweed and is called Agar Agar. This is called China Grass among the Christians in India, perhaps because it comes from China and looks like grass. In muslim households they make a similar preparation and call it Falooda. Whatever the name, I know this will be perfect to set my zombie eyeballs.
This very simple recipe is made using 6 ingredients
There’s nothing more magical or ghoulish about the magic of Halloweeeeeeen and if you want to throw a costume party, you’re sure to have a howling’ good time. Here are some suggestions on how to make your party extra fun!
Every good party starts with a really clear plan. If you’re like me, you’ll have a lot of bits and pieces of theme parties tucked away in your basement. If not, just take stock of what you have, what you can borrow and what you can buy. You don’t have to break the bank, just be super creative! Make a list, hell make several lists and check them and update them as required. If you suddenly get hit with a great idea, write it down or record it on your phone so you don’t forget.
At my parties, I like to serve a variety of themed appetizers and follow it with a dinner menu that is served much later. When appetizers are planned, I like to balance the items with some that can be prepped ahead so I don’t have a crazy schedule the day of the party. I also like to balance the items need to be fried with ones that can just be baked so I can heat up multiple apps at the same time. Here are some suggestions
Cut wieners in half, using a pasta cutter, cut pasta in thin strips and roll around the wiener. Bake. Similar recipe
Fill egg halves with a sriracha mixture and pipe in the yolk and mayo mixture to look like Satan fetuses. Full recipe
Under the Sea
Mix canned Tuna with chives, mayo and gelatine and set in a plastic mold.
Top regular Deviled eggs with a star cut out of a cheese slice
Top a cracker with cream cheese and herbs and add a quartered cherry tomato and half an olive as the head
For libations serve a cocktail like Black Magic Gin – Blackcurrant, Gin & GingerAle or a Bloody Caesar.
Apps and libations naturally morp into a dance party. Make sure you have plenty of great dance music to keep your witches and goblins on the dance floor. And when they’re ready for dinner I like to follow with more themed food
Pirates Scurvy Stew
Crab, Fish and Shrimp cooked in a Thai red curry. Made with this Red Curry Paste.
Halloween is upon us and if you’re hosting your own spooktacular party, here is the perfect simple bevvie for you – Lychee LemonEYEd. This recipe is super simple, you can serve it to the kids or spike it up for the adults. I’m going to use canned Lychees in this recipe to take the Lemonade to an exotic level. Reserved the firm ones for the garnish, pop a black grape in the centre and keep it aside. Throw the rest of the Lychees into the food processor with some of the juice and puree it.
This Lemonade is flavoured with this Lychee puree and garnished with the eye as well as some bloomed Sweet Basil or Chia seeds. This is such a simple recipe but will compliment your other spooky snacks so beautifully!

I love this time of year, when you get to dress up and be someone totally different. Not that I think being a witch is too far from my real personality. Every Halloween I try to think up spooky and creepy ways to present something tasty. In the past I’ve made Deviled eggs look like Satan’s Spawn and White Chocolate mice with gummy centers. This year I’m decided to make a Finger Lickin’ Cauldron Curry, I’m going to fashion witches fingers out of ground meat. Bake them till they are a bit firm and then immerse them in a blood stained curry … finger licking good!
The whole idea was inspired by a purchase of a cooking pot in the summer. I happened to find a Chinese soup pot that looks so much like a cauldron, that I snapped it up. I’ve piped meat before to fill pastries and spring rolls before, so I figured this technique would be well suited to creating fingers as well. Using egg white to secure the almond flakes worked really well and this concoction turned out creepier that I envisioned. Make sure to watch the video where I don the make up and work the Witch’s hat!
To say I love Halloween is an understatement. Every year I think of something interesting to wear and serve! Even if I’m not throwing a crazy Halloween party like I did last year, there’s always a potluck or event to show off your creations. This year I settled on the idea of making some creepy yet delicious mice. They are covered in white chocolate and have a gummy center for a maximum gross factor.
