Ghoulish Dip Surprise!


Watch out for the spooky spider in your pumpkin pie dip. Be careful when you try the poison apple dip for the bean goblins might scare you right to the graveyard goop where you'll find bones in the cemetery dip.

Here are some Ghoulish Dip recipes to spice up your Halloween Party with. They are fun, spooky, scary and creepy. Give them a Ghoulish try. I'm sure they will make a hit with your gals and goblins.


  • 1 Large Apple
  • More Apples for Slicing
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 1 Egg White
  • Red Sanding sugar
  • 1 Small Tootsie Roll
  • 1 Green Gummi Slice


  2. With a hand mixer; mix cream cheese until creamy. Then add brown sugar, honey and vanilla. Beat until mixture is smooth. Add green food coloring to give it that poisonous look.
  4. Cut off the top quarter of the apple. Use a melon baller to carefully hollow out the inside of the top and bottom of the apple. Whisk one egg white in a bowl and brush it onto the surface of the top and bottom apple pieces. Roll the apple pieces in red sanding sugar to coat them.
  6. Roll a Tootsie Roll between your hands to soften it. Roll it around a toothpick and shape it like an apple stem. Leave the bottom 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top. Insert another toothpick into the green gummy slice. Leave a 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top. Stick both pieces into the top of the apple. Allow them both to dry on a wire baking rack. When the apple surfaces are dry, fill the hollow apple bottom with the "poisonous" dip. Slice up the other apples for dipping.

I'd be hard put to pick a favorite, but I'd have to say I love the Bone Dip! That's just cute, as well as yummy sounding. As for the sweet one, Pumpkin Pie Dip, I'd probably have a hard time staying away from that one after I filled up on the Bone Dip. Gotta have a little sweet to finish off!
