Using your favorite meringue recipe (or our recipe for Meringue Phantom Cookies), form the meringue into bone shapes and bake as directed. Crush Oreo or other chocolate cookies until it resembles dirt. Once the meringue shapes are ready, place the "dirt" on a platter and top with the "bones". You can garnish it with spiders, gummy worms, and other Halloween decor.
Oozy Orange Halloween Cupcakes
Submitted by : Ashly
Serves/Makes: 8 | Ready In: 30-60 minutes
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
yellow food coloring
red food coloring
6 ounces chocolate chips
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil, PLUS
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 can white frosting
yellow food coloring
red food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line cupcake baking pans with paper cupcake liners or spray with vegetable spray.
In small mixing bowl, use electric mixer to combine cream cheese, egg and sugar. Blend in 2 drops yellow food coloring and 1 drop red food coloring, adding more coloring if necessary to reach desired shade.
Use mixing spoon to stir in chocolate chips; set filling aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a second small mixing bowl, combine water, vegetable oil, vinegar and vanilla. Add contents of small mixing bowl to large mixing bowl and stir with mixing spoon to combine.
Using a tablespoon, fill cupcake liners half full with cupcake batter, then place 1 teaspoon filling at center of each. As cupcake bakes, the batter will rise to surround the filling.
Place pans in oven; bake approximately 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.
For Frosting: Use your favorite frosting and add a few drops of yellow and red food coloring.
This cupcake has a double frosting whammy: you've got the stuff on the top of the cupcakes and then you've got the stuff that oozes out of the middle (if you don't want it quite so sweet, just leave off the frosting on the top; maybe place a gummy worm on the top of each cupcake instead).

Prepare and frost a batch of brownies. You can use a mix or one of our recipes for brownies. Next make a batch of cookies (sugar cookies work well for this) and either use tombstone shaped cookie cutters, or cut them freehand. Frost and decorate the cookies to look like headstones with phrases like "R.I.P" on them. Using frosting, attached the finished cookies to brownie squares. Garnish with other Halloween decor like tiny pumpkins, goblins, ghosts, candy corn, etc.
Kitty Litter Cake Recipe

Category: Halloween Candy Treats & Sweets
Serves/Makes: 20 | Difficulty Level: 3 | Ready In: 30-60 minutes
1 box (18.25 ounce size) German chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 box (18.25 ounce size) white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
2 packages (3.5 ounce size) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 package (12 ounce size) vanilla sandwich cookies
3 drops green food coloring
1 package (12 ounce size) tootsie rolls
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).
Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won't need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy. Line a clean, new kitty litter box with a kitty litter liner.
Put cake mixture into box. Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape the ends so that they are no longer blunt, and curve the tootsie rolls slightly. Bury tootsie rolls randomly in the cake and sprinkle with half of the remaining cookie crumbs.
Sprinkle a small amount of the green colored cookie crumbs lightly over the top. Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green cookie crumbs.
Serve a clean, new the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.
