    Certainly worth the small cost, so three stars. But I was disappointed in the number of recipes that have no photograph of the finished item. Given the topic of this cookbook, a photograph of every recipe would have made the book more useful and fun to flip through. For those recipes with no picture and a humorous name, you need to read the recipe to find out what it is. But there are some fun ideas and largely the recipes seem easy enough.

    If you’re looking for some fun treats for Halloween, then Ghoulish Goodies is for you! This adorable cookbook has recipes for candies and goodies, cookies, cakes, party food, drinks and even a Halloween supper. There are darling photographs for most (but not all) of the recipes. There are some deliciously scary looking treats in here that would be great to make for the classroom!

    Since olives and cheese are two of the major food groups, I decided to try making the Cheddar Eyeballs. The recipe was easy and delicious, but I came out with about half as many eyeballs as it said I would.

    A great idea in this book is to make a frozen hand for your punch bowl. All you have to do is take a rubber surgical glove and rinse it out several times. Fill it with water, tie the wrist tightly closed, and freeze. Once it’s frozen solid, cut the glove off the palm and each finger with sharp scissors.

    This is a great book for those with kids or for the kid inside of you!

    I pre-ordered this book and I’m glad I did! The recipes in this book are great for childrens parties and some are fancy enough for an adult halloween party. I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet but they appear easy enough to follow and the photographs are beautiful. Makes me want to pull out the mixing bowls and get started. If you are a fan of Halloween like I am this is definitely a book to add to your collection. Happy Haunting!!

    My son fell in love with this book from the moment he saw the cover. He has a list of foods he wants to make from it, and he has already made the cocoa bats and the white chocolate bones. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and the illustrations put the book over the top. These recipes will be used year round in my household.

    I picked this up at the Scholastic Book Fair at my son’s school – and it’s fantastic! I have several Halloween recipe books b/c it’s my absolute favorite holiday, and this one is amazing!

    1) Fun, unique recipe and “food craft” ideas. The “Ice Scream” cake alone is worth the price of admission

    2) Love Sharon’s funny, friendly voice

    3) Recipe ideas for leftover Halloween candy is brilliant

    4) Great ILLUSTRATIONS! The clever art direction and illustrations really set the book apart. A book like this doesn’t *need* illustrations of creepy crawlies or scary monsters, but they add such charm and whimsy and shows that the author and publisher were really committed to taking the book to the next level – love it!
