It is almost Halloween! And now that my boys are too old to dress up and trick or treat, we normally do something fun for dinner and then sit in our driveway to hand out candy to the littles that stop by. In the past, I've made spooktacular pizza dinners (complete with honeydew bats and alien egg cookies), whipped up a batch of Vampire Floats and made Scary Berry Parfaits for dessert. But this year? I'm channeling my inner zombie for a plate of these fun Halloween Dessert Nachos ... ZOMBIE NACHOS!!
Zombie Nachos ~ Halloween Dessert Nachos
Cam and I are hooked on The Walking Dead, so I immediately thought of zombies (or Walkers for my fellow TWD fans) when I added those gobs of raspberry 'blood', graveyard 'dirt' and random candy eyes. But you can call them monster nachos or just Halloween dessert nachos, too. Whatever you decide to call them, just decide to make them because this sweet treat will score big with your guys and ghouls!
- First, spread cinnamon sugar pita chips on a baking sheet or serving tray.
- Drizzle with warm hot fudge. Call this 'goo'or 'gak' or something equally as gross.
- Sprinkle on your crushed cookie 'graveyard dirt'.
- Spoon on globs of raspberry pie filling. It is the perfect color and consistency for blood!
- Add a few candy eyes (or gummy eyeballs, gummy bones, gummy brains or gummy worms ...).
- And finish off the whole tray of delicious Halloween dessert nachos with a sprinkling of Halloween sprinkles.
I know these should be ghastly and gory, but I really think the little eyeballs peering out from globs of raspberry blood and ooey gooey chocolatey gak are kinda cute! And downright delicious, let me tell you!
EYE can assure you that kids and grown-ups alike will gobble up this tray of sweet layered goodness! 😉
