In honor of Oreo's incredibly adorable new ad for their Halloween "Nomsters," we decided to scour the Internet for some fun ways to kick up our festive food decor. We're going beyond the dry ice in punch bowls and candy corn figurines (though we still love those too). Share links to your favorite spooky food ideas in the comments at the bottom of this post.

If you think Halloween is a kids-only sweet zone, blogger Courtney Whitmore might change your mind. Puff pastry topped with gruyere and asparagus gets a lively makeover with the simple but ingenious addition of provolone rounds and capers for googly eyes! Read how to make your own Monster Eye Tart on Courtney's blog, Pizzazzerie.

 

Ghosts are necessary for any Halloween celebration.  Blogger Susie Gall of Simply Sated, decided to make them out of sugar! Click over to her site to find out how to make these BOO-tiful meringue ghosts.

 

Using mini chocolate chips for eyes gives these mummy-like meringues a truer-than-life look.

 

If you want to get a little more crafty, Beth Klosterboer from the blog Hungry Happenings has some great ideas to get you started. You'll have to put in some extra effort for these stuffed olive owls and black cats, but the results are really worth it.

 

Blogger Kathleen Siegle from the blog Yummy Crumble has me thinking of the musical Little Shop of Horrors with these frightfully fun treats. A fun activity to do with family and friends alike, these strawberries are attention-grabbing and a crowd-pleaser for sure.
