Below are just a few of the Halloween kitchen ideas we’ve come across.

Gingerbread Mummy Cookies
Back from the dead, the gingerbread man will have his revenge. BettyCrocker.com suggests using white vanilla baking chips to create a mummy-wrapping effect. Place the chips in a re-sealable bag and microwave it until they have melted. By cutting a corner in the bag, you can drizzle the melted chips onto your gingerbread men – giving them that chilling mummified look.
Grape Lemonade Ghost Ice Pops
A simple but very effective way of turning a harmless lollipop into a frightening proposition: all you need is grape juice, fresh lemon juice, sugar, and melon balls with raisins. Thanks to MarthaStewart.com for this one.
Something definitely for the grown-ups this time, and thanks again to MarthaStewart.com for the idea. The eyeballs are made with radishes and pimento-stuffed olives. Peel the radishes, taking care to leave some of the red skin intact – creating an eerie veiny look – and use a melon baller to make a hole in the centre. Halve the pimento-stuffed olives crossways and place them in the hole. Add to an ice tray with water and freeze. Use a combination of vodka (or gin) with vermouth for the highball, and you have a drink that your unsuspecting guests will never forget.
