Skeleton Hand Pudding

Chocolate pudding cups are a kid favorite. Turn the scare factor up a notch by adding skeleton hands made with sweet icing. And don't worry if you break a (skeleton) bone while pressing the hands into the pudding; leftover icing makes repairing broken bones easier than ever.

Chocolate Candy Pie

This versatile pie can morph to fit many moods. Freeze it for an icy delight, or just refrigerate it instead if you're looking for something a little softer (or you run out of time). Or leave out the candy altogether for something a little less rich. You decide.

Tempura Octopus Hot Dog Bites

Spicy Juicy Lucy-fer Sliders

To ensure a nice browned top to your sliders, check that the broiler flame is on when you pop them in. Many broilers cycle on and off as they work, so it's important to broil these fast-cooking burgers during an "on" cycle.
