Roasted Heart

Found this in my files...sounds a little time consuming, but well worth it. Here's what the original poster (?) had to say: "This is probably the recipe that I am most proud of in this collection of 100+ Halloween recipes. It is the piece de resistance. It looks great, tastes heavenly, and can even be gross for the kids. It can be elegant, or it can be kitsch. It works on a lot of levels. The recipe is very simple and quick to make. I have it down to under half an hour from start to finish (we like it so much we make it a lot, except that we use a low fat tomato sauce instead). The glossy slightly moist bright red pepper looks exactly like a heart. The consistancy as you cut into the dish is very realistic as well. The red sauce oozing out is just the frosting on the cake. There really is only one thing to be careful about, and that is making sure that you be very careful when peeling the red pepper to keep it intact. It is essential to the whole effect of the dish that the "heart" looks whole. For a more "bloodlike" sauce, add some red food coloring to deepen the color, maybe with one small drop of black for depth. Enjoy!"

1¼ hours | 15 min prep

SERVES 6

1/3 cup tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 small onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
salt
pepper
6 chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3 roasted red peppers, 6 halves
Mix together the tomato paste, crushed garlic, 1 teaspoons Italian spices, and brown sugar in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
While the tomato sauce is cooking, fill a large pot with enough water to easily cover the chicken breasts by a few inches, but don't add the chicken yet. Add the onion, garlic, 1 tablespoons Italian spices, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.
Toss the chicken breasts into the pot, cover, and turn off the heat. Leave on the burner, but let sit for about 20 minutes. Do not peek. Remove the thickest piece of chicken, and check to make sure that it is thoroughly cooked. If not replace to the pot, recover, and let sit for a few minutes more.
When the chicken is cooked, drain thoroughly, and discard the vegetables and spices along with the water.
While the chicken breasts are cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan, but don't brown.
Add the flour and whisk to form a roux. Cook until lightly browned, then slowly add the heavy cream. Whisk briskly. Continue to cook the sauce over medium heat until thickened.
Add the tomato paste mixture and mix well. Lower the heat to keep warm while you assemble the dish.
Place a pool of the tomato sauce on an individual serving dish. Top with a chicken breast, and thoroughly cover with more of the tomato sauce. Top with half of a roasted pepper. Serve hot.

Halloween is celebrated more and more often over here, too. For your Halloween party you might make these

SCARY SPIDERS

2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 1/4 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 pck. baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 c margarine or butter
1 c sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 pck. vanilla powder or vanilla sugar
1 pck. red candies for decoration

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
In a saucepan melt chocolate over low heat. Let cool. In a small
bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, beat
margarine/butter on low speed until creamy. Stir in egg, vanilla and
chocolate. Add flour mixture and mix well, forming a stiff dough.

To make a spider, shape a 2-inch flat oval for the body. Make the
spiders head by flattening a circle about 1/2 inch wide. Shape dough
for eight legs, each about 2 inches long and less than 1/4 inch
wide. Attach the head and legs to the body. Use 2 red candies for
the eyes.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 5 to 8 minutes. Let spiders cool on
baking sheet to avoid breaking when removing. Makes about 20 spiders.

I made this one for last year's Halloween Office Potluck:

Eyeball Cupcakes


1 pkg. (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Chocolate Cooked Pudding and Pie Filling
1 pkg. (250 g) PHILADELPHIA Brick Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups icing sugar, sifted
24 ring-shaped chewy fruit snacks
24 miniature candy-coated chocolate pieces Red decorating gel

PREPARE cake batter as directed on package; blend in dry pudding mix. Spoon evenly into 24 paper-lined medium muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool completely.

BEAT cream cheese, butter and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition. Spread evenly onto cupcakes.

PLACE 1 fruit snack on top of each cupcake. Add 1 candy-coated chocolate piece to centre of each to resemble an eyeball. Draw squiggly lines with decorating gel around the eyes to resemble veins.

If you could find an old mannikin's head or wig head and saw the top off, then put a nicely chilled serving bowl in the top of the head and serve it that way?

Creepy Hands


2-1/2 Cups Boiling Water
4 Pkgs. (4-Serving Size Each) Jell-o Gelatin, any flavor

Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl at least 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Refrigerate 10 minutes to cool.

Meanwhile, soak two clean disposable gloves in warm water; rinse well. Squeeze gloves dry. Spray insides of gloves with cooking spray. Gloves will be very difficult to remove later if they are not sprayed. Slowly pour gelatin into each glove; tightly tie top of each glove closed with twist-tie or rubber band. Place on baking sheet. Refrigerate 4 hours or until gelatin is set.

Cut gloves away from gelatin "hands" with scissors. Add to large punch bowl of chilled prepared Kool-aid Drink Mix, Country Time Lemonade Drink Mix or clear carbonated beverage. Or, place hands on plate and use as a decoration for your Halloween table.

I snagged this from recipezaar.com:

Halloween Worms Recipe #3092
Notes: Use a cleaned 1-quart milk or orange juice carton to hold straws
by Linda Johansen
20 min | 15 min prep

100 worms

1 (6 ounce) package raspberry gelatin powder or grape flavor gelatin
3 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water
100 flexible plastic straws
1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height as extended straws)
3/4 cup whipping cream
12-15 drops green food coloring
In a bowl, combine gelatins.
Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, gently pull straws to extend to full length; place in tall container.
Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Pour into container, filling straws.
Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.
Pull straws from container (if using a carton, tear carton away from straws). Pull straws apart; run hot tap water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time. Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with rolling pin, or use your fingers; lay worms on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.
Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
Worms will hold at room temperature up to 2 hours.
