At the Table: Deadly Morsels and Twisted Treats


Halloween’s around the corner which means it’s

that time of year when Treats become Twisted . . .


Witch’s Cauldron Cupcakes


Chocolate cupcakes with frosting in a bubbling cauldron hue

and topped with cauldron potion Halloween sprinkles.


  Twizzlers Chocolate Twists make edible cauldron handles.


It’s also the time when seemingly normal ingredients can appear Spooky. . .

Spooky Lasagna Soup

Spooky Lasagna Soup

Mozzarella and olive slice eyes to stare up from

 your soup bowl with a quick trick & spooky treat!



 Scary Hand Pies are easy to scare up with pie filling,

refrigerated pie crust, and Wilton Candy Eyes.


Scary hand optional <|: >)


Beware. . . it’s the time of year when

morsels become deadly. . .


Death by Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

Death by Chocolate Cupcakes

A triple dose of chocolate deadly

enough for the most die-hard chocoholic.


Bottles were collected for potion ingredients. . .


Pick your poison. . .


And shake up a Skeletini Cocktail.



Ravens have gathered for twisted treats. . .

Brains of Cawing Ravens

aka, White Chocolate Popcorn Crunch


Candy Corn masquerades as Bat Fangs,

Dried Cranberries magically become Lord Neckswoop’s Blood Drops,

and White Chocolate Almond Bark is arsenic-laced

all by conjuring ingredient labels.


Wishing you a Happy Haunting!

    Love everything as usual. If you ever find the standing hands again please let me know. I look every year at Target as well as other stores including EBay. No luck so far. I just love them as there are so many things you can do with them. Happy Hauntings!!

    You are serving up some pretty tempting twisted treats and deadly morsels on your creepy new plates Mary! As I’ve told you many times, you are the Queen of Halloween! Nobody does spooky bites better than you, dangerously served by boney hands and guarded by ravens~ the embalmers bottle is extra skin crawling! Total fun!!

    NO ONE does Halloween better than you! Theplates are terrific, I was thinking they might have been “newly aquired”:):) Your tristed treats are looking delicious and I remember the Skeletini! Have got to make that this year!!! Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

    Love the entire look, especially the black hands. Where did the wonderful patterned treat plates come from.

    Had to laugh at the scary hand pie….Too funny!

    Lovely, and fun! I love the spooky plates! Wherever did you find those? I like your cupcake cauldrons and shared those on G+ the other day, but the scary hand pies are even cuter! A nice change from the sweetness of cupcakes, too. I love the presentation. I will have to hit all the after Halloween sales and see if I can find some plates like those and some cute hands! If not, I would serve those up on plastic skeleton hands!

    “Deadly Morsels & Twisted Treats”…definitely sounds like dinner at my son’s! His girlfriend is a lovely lady with many talents and skills, but cookin’ ain’t one of ’em!!! :-)

    This is so, so cool with all the fun spooky treats! I think my favorite might be the mozzarella & olive eyes! I know that would have people freakin’ out and laughing all at the same time! The hand pies with the Wilton eyes are hilarious!

    I love the variety of plates with all the fun motifs. Every guest can have their own to laugh about and share.

    I haven’t been to Home Goods in a bit, but I sure would love to have one of those spider web tablecloths! Fun!!!

    Such a dazzling post, Mary, filled with magic, child-like joy, and tasty (if twisty) tidbits. I knew the hand pie was your handiwork the moment I saw it. I love the little frown–it’s a Grumpy Cat hand pie. So cute!

    Beautiful…those plates are wonderful. Love all the details, especially the cobweb cloth.

    What a fantastic Halloween table…from the tablecloth to the plates, to the tray of snacks to the eyeball soup! The photo of the table with the water in the background is one my favorites, love it.
    Have a great week, Mary.

    This looks amazing Mary. I didn’t know they made chocolate Twizzlers. Great ideas.
