I am doing desserts for a Depression Era Freakshow party next weekend and I am drawing a blank. So far I am doing finger cookies and I have some eyeball gum drops to place in a glass dish on the table. Any suggestions are MUCH appreciated.

Brain-shaped cake or Jell-O?
Rotten teeth-shaped chocolates?

I dont think it will let me attach a picture but here goes

I don't know why but it wont work so I am addding the pictures of the oreo ball mice, halloween lollipops, and paenut butter eyeballs to my photos right now.

Also You could do rice krispy treats cut out with halloween cookie cutters and covered in icing or chocolate on top.

found a really easy recipe (it found me by facebook lol) for forked eyeballs. you take ready made donut holes and spear them with a fork. then dip them in melted white chocolate chips, and while the chocolate is still warm, press a mini semisweet chip in the center. when it dries, pipe on red sqiggles radiating from the chocolate chip. really cute effect! you can also search halloween food ideas. they have some realistic looking "gross" foods.
