In its essence, Halloween is about all things creepy, eerie and evil. Somewhere along the line, the gross factor was also incorporated and ever since people have been whipping up foods that push the envelope when it comes to Halloween-inspired eats. The beauty of it all is the amount of creativity you can have and the fact that very little is off limits when it comes to Halloween gore, and that most certainly includes body parts. For something extra spooky this year, check out these Halloween treats inspired by body parts.
