These are all super easy to make and perfect for Halloween parties.


Dead Man's Meatloaf 

You can find the recipe here, (the original recipe is by Lucy Monroe author of Creepy Cuisine) but I normally make my own meatloaf, mould it into the shape of a body, pour a tomato based pasta sauce over the top and bake it for about an hour on 350F.  I found the ghoulish mask at a Halloween store and popped a knife in the chest.




For the life of me I can't find the website that I initially snaffled this idea from (I truly hate it when I don't save things), but I've been carrying this idea around for a couple of years and it's always been a hit.  It's a fabulous healthy alternative for a party.  I do remember that whoever had come up with this had used the Land O Lakes spooky hot cheese dip, but I was a little lazier and purchased a couple of tubs of my favorite dip instead.

*UPDATE – Check out Skeleton dip, it's featured on The Crafty Crow

*UPDATE 2 – Dead Man's Meatloaf and Skeleton dip, featured on All About You – Wacky Halloween Recipes




All you need to make these creepy fingers is hot dogs, refrigerated biscuit dough and sliced almonds.  You can find the recipe here.  Don't forget to put out some blood tomato sauce or ketchup for dipping

The meatloaf is killing me (pun intended) I want to make this for my kids – they would love it.

That meatloaf is delightfully disgusting! We always have fondue on Halloween (Fondueween) and I could arrange the veggies like that skeleton guy. Neato

When I clicked I was thinking in my mind…hmmm something for B’s kg class party…then I saw the meatloaf, don’t think that would go too well! It is hilarious though!

I love that crazy meat loaf! Reminds me we haven’t had meatloaf in a while… mmm comfort food. My mom once made a meat loaf sculpted to look like my dad’s face. It was kind of gross. I guess that’s true love?

The veggie skeleton came originally from Family Fun I think. I have the magazine from about 12 years ago. They used to have it on the website, too but I couldn’t find it this year.
