Everyone’s favorite Halloween movie just came out with a part two. To celebrate the release of Hocus Pocus 2 and spooky month (aka October) we’re doing a movie night I Heart Bins style with themed food, of course!
Before we get to the food, the movie itself was good. My 11 year olds enjoyed it and there was nothing to scare them (my kids get scared of ANYthing). Our 6 year old was in and out, her attention span is pretty short, but I didn’t really have any concerns with her watching it either. Ok, now for the food.
Spider Bread Bowl w/ Eye(meat)balls
I hit up Pinterest, as one does, and found the perfect (and easy) spider bread bowl recipe. Instead of dumping marinara straight into the spider I opted for an actual bowl set into the body. For dipping I heated up some pre-cooked meatballs and topped them with eyeball-looking pieces of provolone cheese. To make I used a circle cutter for the general shape and a straw to punch out the inner circle.
To keep with the Hocus Pocus color scheme, I attempted to give the eggs a green crackled effect by cracking the shells and soaking in green food coloring. They probably needed to soak for waaaaay longer to get a good effect, but it was good enough. I then colored the yolk mixture with purple food coloring. The eggs were plate on this super cool spider web cheese board.
Bloody Jell-O Cups
This one was simple enough. Fill individual serving size cups with jell-o and, once set, top with some creepy gummy candy. I found a mixed bags of eyes, brains, bones and fingers at World Market.
Black Cat Dessert
To cap things off with something sweet I made up these cutie black cat treats. To make take a Ding Dong and attach Hershey Kisses as ears with some melted chocolate. Once that dries, add eyes and whiskers details with white chocolate in a piping bag. I added some pink sprinkles on the ears too.
Witches Brew Punch
To drink we whipped up some witches brew punch (a mix of Hawaiian Punch, Sprite and rainbow sherbet) topped with a ghost Peep. I couldn’t resist the cauldron mugs either, they were just perfect.
