Severed Fingers and Giant Frog Eggs
I cut hotdogs in half, trim a little off the tip for the fingernail, and cut a few little slits for the knuckles. Boil until hot and then dip the cut end in ketchup. The "eggs" are canned black olives just because I needed something in the middle of the plate to make it look good.
Only a few hotdogs were eaten when I picked them up. Partly that is because there was so much food brought. And it's also partly because apparently kids were freaked out.
Monster Barf (I didn't get a picture.)
I just mixed up a yummy, easy fruit salad with canned fruit cocktail, cool whip, and a package of Jello (just the dry powder.) But then I put it in an empty gallon ice cream bucket and wrote "Barf Bucket" on the side.
It didn't get eaten at all! I guess kids were a little too nervous about that one. I thought it was delicious.
Pumpkin Jack-o-Lantern Cookies
These are just these cookies but instead of mixing the chocolate chips in, we stuck them in after scooping to make it look like a pumpkin face.
The stem is a piece of pretzel stick. I may have to figure out a better way to do these, though, because the pretzel ended up soft and kind of weird texture.
