Deadly Desserts

Tim and Kelsey had an Appetizer/Dessert contest at their halloween party this year. Betty crocker and i made Spooky Brownies! Spiders, Frankensteins and Ghosts.

i think they are more "cutesy" than "spooky" but thats okay..and they would have been better if i hadnt put them in the pan so close together and THEN tried to draw their detailed 1:ooam the morning of. whoops.

Mr. Anthony did a wooonderful job on his Spider Web Seven Layer Dip. it was a big hit and won the appetizer contest! tim and kels gave us a gift card to macaroni grill/chilis/maggianos.

Daddy made icky looking Stuffed Cockroaches. yuuuck. but actually they were probably my favourite desserts there..if you pulled out the antennae, walked away and cleared you mind for a bit before popping them in your mouth, they were faaabulous. cream cheese and walnuts inside.

Jess, love all your great ideas. Could you tell me what you use for the antennae on the stuffed roaches? I am having a BIG party on Halloween and I think the roaches would be a big hit!

Thanks, Jane
