Halloween without the treats?

That's just downright....ghoulish!

The trick to great Halloween party food is to let everyone in on the joke -- as you create some of the grossest, but most edible dishes ever.

Worms & Dirt
Check. Spaghetti & Eyeballs? Check. Deviled Eyeballs? Yum!

And since this is Halloween there has to be, um, finger food....

Have fun!

3. Bake for 8-10 until golden brown.
