Warning: This Halloween Story is Super Gross

Ewwww! That's the reaction most people have when they see the creepiest of the scary Halloween dishes shared on our site. We're talking Bloody Rats, Slimy Eyeballs and disembodied body parts. Don't say we didn't warn you, but if you're amused instead of aghast, check out these popular, super frightful creations.

1. Halloween Shrimp Cocktail Brain

There are tons of foods you can stuff into a brain-shaped mold, but this version gets extra gory points for coming pretty close to the actual texture of the stuff in the ol' noggin, right? Add a bloody good cocktail sauce and serve on crackers.

3. Ratloaf

Yes, the photo below makes this dish lean a little toward adorable, but come on. We're talking about rats! This beefy preparation is even better when it's smothered in Chef John's Homemade Ketchup.

4. Creepy Halloween Eyeballs

It's one thing for your appetizer to stare back at you, but -- double scream -- these are ultra-goosebump-causing when you stick toothpicks or itty bitty plastic swords in those eyeballs. For those who are confused, wondering what the main ingredient is, lychees are called a "nut" but it's really a tropical fruit with a sweet flavor and a crunchy texture. So, in other words, perfect for these creepy eyeballs.
