More an "Idea Book" instead of a Cookbook Oct. 16 2012
By Petite Fleur - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't be misled by the title, this isn't your traditional Cookbook. While it does have some unique ideas on how to decorate items for Halloween, you're required to buy specific Pillsbury pre-made Doughs, Box Cake Mixes, Bisquick, frostings, etc. Some recipes can get very pricey and you'll find your grocery list gets very long with the additional items on it.

I just bought this book. I reviewed it, page by page, and counted 40 Treat "recipes" that use pre-made dough or cake mixes. There are only ten treat recipes for items made from scratch, but they do use pre-made frostings, candies, etc. The remaining recipes use store-bought cookies, ice cream, and cakes. The drink and food recipes also call for store bought ingredients. For instance, the "Spiderweb Pot Pies" first two ingredients are Pillsbury Crescent refrigerated dough sheet and a 2 pound rotisserie chicken. If you need a recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, this book has it. You simply cut the sandwiches out like coffins and put "RIP" on the top with jelly.

I would really call this an "Idea Book." The photos are colorful, instructions are clear and easy to follow. I will keep my book because I do collect books with party ideas and these can be used for other holidays.

Pleasant family-friendly fare (but not my cup of tea) Sept. 10 2012
By Scary Jerry - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Betty Crocker cookbooks have been around since 1930, and this is the first ever all-Halloween edition. Featuring almost 100 recipes (each with an accompanying photo), the book is filled with silly spirit and the many quick cook short-cuts Betty fans have come to expect. It will definitely appeal more to parents with younger kids as many of the "recipes" involve drawing faces on food or shaping food to resemble witches and insects. These are not the overzealous and intricate Martha Stewart-type Halloween recipes that would appeal to the more sophisticated haunted holiday entertainer, but I can see using a handful of these recipes as a springboard for more adult fare. The Smores Shake Shot could be made with Godiva Chocolate Liquor instead of melted chocolate ice cream. The Spider Bites gelatin squares made with black vodka would be a clever jello-shot. And adding Midori to the Lemon-Slime Punch and serving it in test tubes would be great for a mad scientist theme. Beyond the liquor additions, I also liked some of the ideas for decorating cupcakes (tombstones! chocolate bats!), and the ubiquitous Pumpkin Cake. Overall, this book was not my cup of tea, but it's nicely produced in full color with good photography throughout.
