Whole white button or who cremini mushrooms

1 stick butter

Italian Pleasoning to taste

Mushrooms and butter are 1:1 ratio, but I used less butter

Cook on low for about 6 hours. Mushrooms need to cook down and be covered in liquid.

Severed-Finger Cheese Sticks

6 string cheese sticks

12 almond slices

2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce, or to taste

Round off each end of cheese sticks with a paring knife to resemble a fingertip. Roughly tear each cheese stick in half for 2 "fingers". Shave off a piece of each "fingertip" to form a nail bed; place an almond slice on nail bed to form a "fingernail." Cut a few shallow lines in center of each finger for knuckles. Pour several drops of hot sauce into small pools of "blood" on a serving plate. Dip torn ends of fingers into blood for bloody fingers. Lay each finger in its own pool of blood. "This would make an eye-catching appetizer tray for your upcoming Halloween party . . . Be sure to tear cheese sticks in half as irregularly as possible, to provide realism. You can use ketchup instead of hot sauce, if desired."

Flayed Man Cheese Ball

1 plastic face mask (from crafts store)

2 (3 ounce) packages prosciutto

2 pimento-stuffed green olives

24 ounces cream cheese, softened

6 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

6 ounces shredded Havarti cheese

½ cup pitted green olives, chopped

¼ cup roasted red peppers, drained and chopped

Lightly coat plastic face mask with cooking spray (see Cook's Notes). Line mask with plastic wrap; be sure to press it down fully into nose and eyes. Reserve two or three slices of prosciutto; tear remaining prosciutto into strips. Lay strips in mask to form "muscle tissue." Start around eyes, leaving eyes blank; create cheeks, chin and forehead. Position whole green olives in eye holes, pimento side-down. Set the mask aside. Combine cream cheese, Cheddar, and Havarti in a mixing bowl. Add chopped green olives and roasted red peppers. Use an electric mixer or clean hands to mix until thoroughly combined. Take a heaping spoonful of cheese mixture; arrange it to form an eye around each olive. Gently fill mask with cheese mixture, taking care not to move prosciutto around. Press cheese down as you work to fill in all crevices. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Invert mask onto a serving platter; gently remove mask and plastic wrap. You should be left with a gorgeous (and freaky) face. If there is cheese showing around the bottom edges, use the reserved prosciutto slices to cover it before serving.

12 thin slices deli salami

¼ cup honey mustard

1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme (optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place salami slices in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crisp and edges begin to crackle, 12 to 15 minutes, watching carefully so they do not burn. Drain slightly on paper towels. Combine honey mustard and thyme in a small dish.* 4 servings (thekitchenwitch.com; from: Real Simple) * I baked some and pan-fried some over medium heat. Either way works well, but if you pan-fry them, you will need to turn them once or twice.
