Stay-Puft Marshmallow Madness

While dressing up for Halloween is my all-time favorite part, making scary Halloween food runs a close second. Many people know about using spagetti for guts and peeled grapes for eyeballs, but my favorite is making Zombie eyes (aka deviled eggs with green food coloring and red squiggles on the egg whites and a black olive slice on the yolks). For all of you Ghostbusters fans, Nerd by Night (who you might remember from my Don’t Panic towel messenger bag post) has a great recipe and idea to make Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man meringue cookies.

Stay-Puft Meringue Marshmallow Men

Slightly smaller than the 100ft tall terror that rampaged through New York, these Stay-Pufts are just the right size to impress your friends AND be eaten! All you need is some sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar, (Nerd by Night links to a great meringue recipe as well), and some colored icing. Good luck, and great eats!

What a crazy random happenstance!

If you have these on your wall, what does it say to people who walk into your house?

“I have a PHD in horribleness.”
“You’re driving a spork into your leg.”
“I don’t go to the gym, I’m just naturally like this.”

somekindofrobot on Etsy has made these beautiful canvas paintings of your favorite Dr. Horrible characters. They’re definitely unique and will certainly liven up the place when Dr. Horrible gives you the keys to a shiny new Australia. 

Also in her shop you’ll find a Boba Fett canvas painting, Ghostbusters painting, and even a GLaDOS painting.
