We have several very cool and spooky recipes here from Brandy

) Worm Sandwiches
Hot dogs
Hamburger rolls
Cut the hot dogs into thin slices and score the edges (agout 3 cuts per slice)
Boil or microwave until the slices curl like wiggly worms. Serve three or four worms to a bun. For an extra-icky touch, add a few squiggles of ketchup
2)Putrid Punch
1 13-oz. package lemon-lime Kool-Aid (Use your favorite)
1 cup sugar
8 cups water
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
4 cups ginger ale
Worm cubes (ice cubes with gummy worms frozen inside)
3 scoops orange sherbert
(Also you can put some dry ice in the bowl to make it fog like a witch’s brew)

This sick-colored punch looks disgusting but tastes divine. Empty the Kool-Aid package into a punch bowl. Add the sugar, then the water and stir until dissolved. Stir in the orange juice. Just before serving, add the ginger ale and worm cubes and float the scoops of sherbert on top. Before long, the punch will be green and infested with worms.
