Disgusting Diaper Dip Halloween Recipe
A tasty hummus made from black beans and chickpeas, it’s actually pretty awesome! But this is one of those disgusting Halloween recipes that’s all about presentation. And if you present this Diaper Dip right, only the bravest of your guests will be willing to try it.

Ingredients:
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained
1 C. cooked, drained chickpeas (garbanzos)
2 tbsp. tahini
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 C. chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Greek yogurt or olive oil, if needed to thin

Instructions:
1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine all of the ingredients.
2. Process until smooth. If mixture is too thick, thin out with a bit of Greek yogurt or some more olive oil.
3. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate, covered, at least an hour before serving and up to 48 hours.

Severed Fingers Halloween Recipe
You can also try a small piece of onion for the nail, if you like, but I think the yellow bell pepper gives the best impression of thick, gross-looking yellow nails. Recipe below is for one serving– just multiply to make as many as you need.

Ingredients:
3 cocktail sausages
3 triangles of yellow bell pepper
Ketchup or BBQ sauce, as needed

Instructions:
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
2. To make each serving of three fingers, create 3 shallow horizontal slices about halfway up each cocktail sausage for “knuckles.”
3. Boil sausages until cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Let cool slightly.
4. With a sharp knife, cut a small flat space at the tip of the sausage for a “nail.” Using a bit of ketchup, mayonnaise, or BBQ sauce, press a nail into each finger.
5. Fill a cup (in the photo it’s a plastic muffin cup, but you can use a ramekin, a little clear glass, or whatever) with a couple tablespoons of ketchup, BBQ sauce, or any other red-colored sauce. Place assembled fingers in the cup, burying the ends slightly in the sauce. Serve hot.

Tip: Heating the sauce helps keep this disgusting Halloween food from cooling down too fast.

Halloween Pumpkin Eggnog Recipe
Ingredients:
4 C. milk (I use 2%)
1 C. canned pumpkin puree
7 lg. eggs
1 C. granulated sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
1 C. whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Spiced rum (such as Capitan Morgan), to taste
10-12 cinnamon sticks (to garnish)
Pumpkin pie spice, as desired (to garnish)

Instructions:
1. In a large, heavy saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin puree and the milk. Bring slowly to a gentle boil. Remove from the heat.
2. Meanwhile, beat together your eggs and sugar in a heat-resistant bowl.
3. To temper your egg mixture, pour a small amount of your hot milk into the eggs, whisking constantly. Add a bit more, whisking all the while, until your egg mixture is hot and close to the temperature of your milk mixture.
4. Slowly and gradually whisk your tempered egg mixture into your milk mixture. Return to a medium-low heat.
5. Add cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in cream, vanilla, and rum to taste.
6. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. You’ll want to let it chill for at least four hours to let the flavors combine. Garnish each serving with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Tip: If your eggs weren’t tempered perfectly, you may end up with a few egg bits in your nog. If this happens, simply strain the pumpkin eggnog into your Halloween party punch bowl before chilling.

Decorating: If you want to make this Halloween party punch look a little more spooky, you can add a bit of orange food coloring before you chill it. Decorate with a little bit of black-colored sugar. Serve in a punch bowl or pretty little cups. I like clear ones.
