Collegiette Cooking: Kitchen Witchin’

Ah, Halloween. It’s a time to explore your dark side, play Monster Mash on repeat, and eat hors d’oeuvres shaped like fingers. You’re too old for trick-or-treating but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some tasty treats! Here are a couple of my favorites:

Pizza Mummies from Spoonful

– Preheat your oven to 350° and toast a bunch of English muffins.

– Spread pizza sauce on your toasted muffin slices.

– Strategically place slices of white cheddar cheese over the sauce so they look like bandages

– Put two black olive slices on top to make eyes!

– Optional: insert little bits of scallion or green pepper into the center of the olive to give your mummy some personality and flavor.


Pretzel Fingers from Delish

– In the microwave or on the stovetop, heat up some white or regular milk chocolate.

– Get some giant pretzel sticks (not those little snack-sized ones) and coat them with the chocolate. 

– Place them on a sheet of waxed paper, and immediately press a pumpkin seed onto the tip as if it were a fingernail.

– Refrigerate at least 15 minutes to set the chocolate.

Hot Spiced Cider (21+)

I’m going go out on a limb here and assume you don’t have any vermouth or grenadine lying around.  If you want to get into some real mixology, or you’re looking for something resembling brains or eyeballs, check out the rest of Mr. Booze’s treasure trove of Halloween party drinks. With the typical broke and/or lazy Barnard student in mind, here is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser—the classic apple cider punch. This recipe calls for Applejack, a liquor made from apples, which is not only delicious, but is available at your local International Wine & Spirits.  From Mr. Booze himself:

2 quarts apple cider

4 cloves

3 cinnamon sticks

5 shots Applejack or Apple Brandy

Heat cider with cloves and cinnamon, add booze and stir. Pat the rims of mugs in brown sugar and serve the cider in them.

Drink responsibly, witches!
