Bloody Ears

Ive been wanting to make these for a while and finally remembered to pick up everything I needed to make them. They look gross. Just like little bloody ears!  This is a great recipe to have on hand for Halloween. They couldnt be simpler to make either.


1 sheet puff pastry, thawed

1/2 cup red jelly- I used strawberry

1 egg, beaten

1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar


Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Spread jelly evenly on puff pastry.Beginning at one long side, roll dough to middle. Repeat with other side. Using pastry brush, cover outside of the log with beaten egg. Spread sugar out onto platter and roll log until covered. Using knife, cut the log into 1/4 in. pieces. Arrange on baking sheet and bake 20 mins.



Full Moon Sundaes

Even a man who is pure in heart, And says his prayers by night, May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms And the Autumn moon is bright.

Above is a quote from the 1941 movie, The Wolf Man.  I grew up watching this movie and still love it just as much today as I did then. The recipe for full moon sundaes is from Rachael Ray. I decided to make this to go along with my sea monster sandwich as a ode to the great Lon Chaney aka the Wolf Man.

This sundae is sure to have you howling at the moon! 🙂


fudge sauce, heated-I used sugar free

fudge swirl ice cream- I used fat free vanilla

4 moon pies, chopped- I used 4 mini moon pies

whipped cream


For each sundae, layer the ice cream, moon pie chunks, fudge sauce, and whipped cream.


Sea Monster Sandwich

Aside from Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Maybe its because I love all things horror or maybe because my birthday is just two days before All Hallows Eve. Either way, I love it. This really isnt a recipe but its just too darn cute not to post.

I found this  in a Pillsbury Halloween magazine that I picked up at Walmart a couple of weeks ago. Basically you just buy a can of refrigerated french bread and form it into an S shape and bake as directed. Let it cool for a few mins and slice in half horizontally. Pile on your favorite sandwich toppings. The eyes are simply a carrot that I cut into some small rounds and the tongue is the end piece of a tomato that I cut into a fork shape. You make a little cut right underneath were you sliced the bread in half and gently push in the tomato. There you go. You have a sea monster!
