We love October! With it comes a slight chill in the weather that brings a crispness to the air and the fall foliage color we all look forward to. October also brings Halloween, our favorite holiday of the year because we don’t have to make a big holiday meal or buy presents, and we get to dress up in scary costumes and eat as much candy as we want!
Treat your favorite tricksters to delightful and delicious Halloween party foods that everyone will enjoy, such as Graveyard Smash, Whose Fingers Are Those?, Scary Centipizza, Critters Cracker Snack, Witches Warts, Dare You to Dip into these Body Parts, Mummy’s Tombs, Graveyard Gravel, Bucket of Bleached Bones, Terrifying Tarantulas, Bloody Massacre Martinis and My Punch Is Staring At Me! You’ll have a Halloween party spread your guests will be talking about for years to come!
Check out My Punch Is Staring At Me! recipe below and keep your eyes on the San Jose Easy Meals Examiner page throughout October for the rest of the above Halloween party recipes and more! And remember to visit our local Cash and Carry and/or Smart and Final stores for great bargains on groceries, utensils and everything else you need to throw a haunting Halloween party!
My Punch Is Staring at Me!
canned litchis, drained (readily available in grocery stores typically in the ethnic foods aisle)
maraschino cherries (without stems), drained
equal parts of cranberry juice cocktail (or your favorite cranberry juice mixture such as cranberry/raspberry, etc.), pineapple juice, maybe some pomegranate blueberry juice, whatever sounds good to you as long as the end result is red in color and states good!
Note: you can make this a punch with Punch! simply by adding vodka.
- Using a small, sharp knife, cut a small slit in each litchi and insert a maraschino cherry into each slit.
- Place these on a baking sheet, keeping them separated, and freeze until frozen solid.
- When ready to serve, mix your chosen juices together in a punchbowl.
- Add the frozen “eyeballs” and serve.
