Right now I'm leaning towards 'Bleeding Cupcakes' - http://www.bonappetit.com/blogsandforums/blogs/consciouscook/2009/10/how-to-make-bleeding-cupcakes.html

1) Bake cupcakes using your favorite recipe.

2) Once cooled, dig a small lump of cupcake out of the top. Set the removed chunk aside.

3) Pour a little bit of an edible, reddish, runny substance, such as strawberry jam or cherry pie filling, into the hole.

4) Re-insert removed chunk.

5) Frost the top (thereby covering up the evidence of step 2).

6) Dip a toothpick into some of the leftover jam (filling, sauce, red icing, etc.) and stab the top of the cupcake twice to give the appearance of fang marks.

eyeball cupcakes http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/photo/Eyeball-Cupcakes-232942 pretty close to how they turn out.

Also used to make Witches Hats for the kids' classes at school. Take a fudge covered cookie. Keebler makes some that have chocolate stripes on the top and the bottom is all chocolate. Turn them upside and "glue" an unwrapped Hershey's kiss with a dab of frosting. then I piped orange frosting around the bottom of the kiss and made a bow. Ta da! Witches Hats kind of like this: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/witches-hats/c04c58a6-9fb7-46ef-a45f-9bfabbf96b0d

@lavikinga: ah very nice! I should probably try the bleeding and eyeball cupcakes out beforehand to see if one is better than the other ;-) - or maybe I'll want to make them both :-)

@tygerdave: oooh! why not combine them both? You could even find those little cocktail swords and stick it in the wound! Yummy! What 8 year old little kid could resist???

@lavikinga: excellent idea! Vanilla pudding as puss coming out of the eye, or just stick with the "blood"?

@tygerdave: by giving you this recipe, I fully expect you to make it!

you will need:
1 bag marshmallows
1 tube of crescent rolls
1/2 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
muffin pan (sprayed)

First, combine cinnamon and sugar in small bowl, then melt butter in seperate small bowl. Now dunk a marshmallow in the butter, roll it in your cinnamon/sugar mix, making sure it's covered. Now roll the marshmallow up in one of the crescent rolls, making sure there are no openings where the filling will pop out (this might take a few tried to get it right, and some will still pop, so don't be frustrated). Repeat the process till you have them all done, cook for recommended time, serve and enjoy!

Since it's halloween, you can substitute anything you like, caramel, bite sized candy bars, you get the idea...

@lavikinga: ewwwwwww - I like the taste of vanilla better, but green would be more impressive

@311feen: That sounds really good, guess I could call them Egyptian Tombs and the marshmallow could be the mummy

@tygerdave: The mallow is a gooey mess once you cook them, so pus pockets would be appropriate :)

@tygerdave: you could tint the vanilla pudding with the tiniest bit of green food coloring. You'll need to add yellow too.

@311feen: positively revolting! A winner for sure!

Cookie dough cupcakes. Make cupcakes, put cookie dough in them. Use a little bit of vanilla pudding mix with the cake mix, pour it out into the cupcake pan, put chunks of cookie dough in (the more the better), bake it, put some halloween frosting on it. 'Nuff said
