3 Creepily Delicious Recipes Inspired by The Undertaker
They say that “no grave can hold him, no God will claim him, and no devil will have him!” He is The Deadman, The Phenom. He is sports-entertainment’s “grim reaper of justice.” And he rolls his eyes all the way to the back of his head. I’d say he amplifies the entire spirit of Halloween! If you know WWE, you most definitely know The Undertaker.
Here are 3 creepily delicious recipes inspired by the aforementioned grave- digger for your Halloween party this year. These are sure to make your guests, as The Undertaker would say, “Rest in Peace;” well, at least until next day!
- 1/2 oz Pomegranate juice
- 1/2 oz Guava juice
- 1 oz Vodka
- 1/2 oz Lemon juice
- Carrots- baby carrots work really well for this one
- Mix up the two juices, and add Vodka to jazz up things. There are no real proportions to follow, really. It all depends on individual taste.
- Cut the carrots to look like fingers.
- Pour into individual glasses and drop a few blueberries. Add a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice. And stick a “finger” into each drink. It almost appears like a creepy finger rising from a pool of “blood!” Eerily delicious!
If you were to dig up The Undertaker’s opponents after he “buried them alive,” they would look like these stuffed bell pepper jack-o-lanterns. I’d say, “brainalicious!”
- Bell Pepper (assorted colors)- 1 per person
- Walnuts- about 4-5 per bell pepper
- Cooked spaghetti in marinara
- Cheese of your choice- grated
- Salt and pepper for seasoning, per taste
- Olive Oil for drizzling
- Carve the bell peppers- I promise it is way easier than carving pumpkins! Cut off the top, and de-seed. You can save the tops, or discard- your choice.
- Stuff the bell pepper jack-o-lanterns with the cooked spaghetti in marinara. Place 4-5 walnuts on top, and grate some good cheese over this.
- Arrange the stuffed bell peppers on a greased baking pan/dish. Drizzle some olive oil on all the peppers, and sprinkle salt and pepper to season.
- Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
- Serve these over a bed of spaghetti. Add some fun elements such as spiders made with olives, and maybe bits of sausage sticking out of the bell peppers.
- Brownie mix
- Brown Sugar
- Gummy worms
- White Icing (available in tubes in stores)
- Bake the brownies according to directions on the package.
- While it is still warm, cut small pieces from the big brownie, and shape them into coffins/graves.
- Spread some brown sugar on a serving platter to represent dirt (crushed oreo cookies work well too).
- Place the brownie coffins/graves on this “dirt.”
- Get creative and add special effects with gummy worms to represent snakes slithering around the graveyard (yikes!).
- This graveyard might in fact turn out be too cute for The Phenom to walk into!
