Brace yourselves, Halloween themed food is coming. With Thanksgiving done and out-of-the-way – Until the Americans do theirs on some football/retail therapy filled weekend in November – Halloween everything is full swing.
These donuts, are not in and of themselves Halloween themed as much as they are Harry Potter themed. With that said, witches, wizards, enormous spiders, magic, and dementors all fall in the Halloween category, so a Golden Snitch is Halloweeny by association.
Sugar Shack Donuts in Virginia came up with this Butterbeer donut made available through the month of October – made them available for pre-order and everything because Potter fans get pretty serious about this sort of thing. With this photo becoming a viral sensation, the store has offered a free “house donut” to anyone who comes in with a wand. When I hear “house donut” I think “House Elf” but I’m not sure any of these treats comes with socks.
You, however are free to pull some food ideas from the photos below:

Can’t believe Halloween is almost here – what tricks or treats do you have up your sleeve? How about a Zom-BEET platter?! Zero shame in my puns, sorry I’m not sorry . ⠀ This is perfect for a party – a giant brain made of beets and @miraclenoodle spaghetti and beet pickled eyes (I mean, eggs) with extra roasted beet slices, pimento olives, and cornichons.⠀ .⠀ Swipe left for more views of my @miraclenoodle beet brain – when you serve the brain slices, you can see the noodles wiggling out. ⠀ .⠀ All you need to make your own BRAAAAINS is a plastic jello mold (like $5 on Amazon), a can of beets, a few packets of gelatin, and a bag of noodles.⠀ .⠀ 1. Microwave the noodles to dry them off (my favorite quick prep method) and lay them down in your plastic mold. Miracle Rice also works great for this – and it’s actually easier to slice. . 2. Blend the whole can of beets, including the liquid. If you want it sweet, add some sweetener and perhaps balsamic vinegar or fruit juice; if you want it savory, add some dill or horseradish. . 3. Pour 1 cup of boiling water over your gelatin (I used 3 tablespoons of gelatin) and stir to combine. Combine gelatin mix into blended beets. . 4. Pour the gelatin/beet mix into your mold (over your noodles) and let set in the fridge for 4-8 hours. To get the brain out of the mold, put the mold in a bowl of warm water for a minute or two – the brain will pop right out.
