In Which I Need Help With Monster Food

I am disappointed.

One of my friends sent me a picture of this:

Mummies in a Blanket--How awesome is THAT?!?


I thought, "Now THIS is a culinary style I can get behind! Foodstuffs shaped like monsters! I'll make vampire pancakes! Frankensteinian vegetable crudite plates! MERPIRE FISH AND CHIPS!!!!

And I googled.

I found nothing. Has my google-fu failed me, or are there no monster foodstuffs out there other than cake?!? My faith in the world is compromised. Please tell me that you know of something that will make me smile again.

Oh wait. This weekend, I get to chase a zombie through the halls of a school with a sword. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm happy again, but I'd still love to hear about any monster foodstuffs you might know about.

I once saw a brain shaped meat-loaf, but I think it was on TV.

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

I've made those mummies! We go all out for Halloween. Look up Halloween food recipes and you will find a lot. I even put out dried cranberries and labeled the bowl "scabs". You can find all kinds of jello molds too! BRAIIIINS!

Those look cute and delicious. I tried googling monster foods, but all that pulled up were cupcakes. I think I google-failed too :(

Man, I don't KNOW any! I'm a total disappointer. That's right. Flog me now. Obviously I deserve it.

But I love those little mummies in a blanket!

You have to google Halloween treats, I think the problem you are having is that normal peeps don't make monster food except on Halloween.lol I say that with love.

Oh, I have a whole cookbook on this kind of stuff. You need to maybe google Halloween foodstuffs, because that's when I see all the zombie stuff. And kid's cookbooks. They always have whack stuff in them to do to hot dogs.

Holy crap those things look awesome!

Oh those are brilliant! And not too creepy-looking to still look delicious. WANT.

There's always the floating hand in the punch bowl (punch that's been frozen in a rubber glove). That's all I got. And suddenly it's a little more clear to me why no one shows up to my parties.
