Severed Fingers, Brain Goop,
Pumpkin Pudding and Spooky Shakes
Hello you ghoul-geous lot (lol)!! I hope you’re good and thanks for stopping by today. Today’s blog is a an amazing spooky two course meal or could be adapted for party food! I however whipped this up for my little lads as Halloween treat.
You will need for the….
Severed Fingers and Brain Goop
Salt and pepper,
Red food colouring,
Vegetables diced small, (optional)
- Add about a teaspoon of the food colour to a pan of water. You could use any colour you like but I used red.
- Add the spaghetti and start to boil.
- Take you hotdog and cut the end off. Not much just a little to take the round edge off.
- Slice the end up until it looks shredded.
- In the centre of the hotdogs slice three small lines.
- Then slice thinly a little nail shape at the rounded end and place on a flat oven tray.
- Pre-heat the oven to 200’c.
- When the spaghetti is softened put the hot dogs in the oven for about 10 minutes.
- Drain the spaghetti and put it back in the pan. Add the tin of tomatoes and extra veg if you want. Dice it though so it looks lumpy. Also add the salt and pepper. Let it heat through.
Once it’s all done plate it up and you have this rather gruesome looking thing! However I was handed clean plates back so it must’ve been a hit!!
Now onto pudding! Whilst I was making this I thought I had actually had a huge fail but as it turned out it I managed to save them (lol).
You will need for….
Pumpkin Crispy Cakes and Spooky Shakes
White Chocolate 300g,
Red and yellow food colouring,
Marshmallow fluff for decoration (optional),
- Break up the chocolate in a bowl and melt. I did it on the hob and this is how I nearly failed so I will share what went wrong. You could also melt in the microwave, check your guide for lengths of time.
This is how I nearly failed! I used a pan that was too small with a bowl that was too small for the chocolate.
In doing this my chocolate became cakey at the bottom. I turned the heat right down to 1 and added about 4/5 tablespoons of milk and slowly mixed it through. YAY saved it!!
- Once the chocolate is melted add a teaspoon of golden syrup and mix well.
- Then add about 6/7 drops of the yellow food colour and only about 3 of the red. I found at first it looked to be turning green. However when they were dry the were a light orange colour. I could have used a drop or 2 more red so be brave unlike me hahaha!
- Mix the chocolate into a bowl of crispies but don’t have to many at the start. You can always add more but you can’t take them away. Keep adding the crispies until they’re all well covered in chocolate.
- Shape the mix into ball/pumpkin shape. mine weren’t great but with the earlier disaster I just wanted them made!
- Add a mini Rolo to the top for a stalk.
- I decorated the corner my plate with a coweb using marshmallow fluff
8. Leave in the fridge to set.
I served this with an amazing red Spooky Shake with a added festive pumpkin gingerbread biscuit. My boys loved it! They looked great and tasted really good! I am so glad I manage to save the crispy cakes!
Anyway my sweets I hope you enjoyed this blog as much as I enjoyed making it!! I will defo be using this another year! Perhaps as actual bloody finger hotdog mwahahaha!
