The Twilight Saga: Recipes & Food Ideas for Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn
*An Empty Plate: Since vampires don’t eat, be sure to include one empty plate for them.
*Bella’s Birthday Cake: Perfect for those guests who love to bake or for those who just don’t have the time. Make your own birthday cake for Bella or pick one up at your local grocery store! Red velvet cake or cupcakes are an especially appropriate choice!
*Twilight Fang Cupcakes: Using pie filling and your favorite cupcake mix, you can create these creative, delicious treats that even “Team Jacob” guests will enjoy! See directions below.
*Werewolf Kibble/Puppy Chow: The key to this great dish isn’t just the yummy “dog food,” it’s the container! Channel your inner Rosalie from Breaking Dawn and create the dog food bowl she makes for Jacob. Take a large aluminum foil roasting pan and fold down the sides. Crumple it and write “Fido” on the side before putting in your delicious treats. See recipe below for Werewolf Kibble/Puppy Chow.
*New Moon Cookies: Take your traditional Nilla wafer cookie and dip it into some melted bark chocolate to create a “new moon” cookie. Lay out on wax paper until completely cooled and enjoy!
*Mushroom Ravioli: Any Italian dish would be a great addition, but the meal Bella orders when she first goes out with Edward is perfect! Find great recipes at allrecipes.com .
*Red & Black Candy: Twizzlers or red & black M&Ms are great for decoration and for an easy treat. Place in a opposite color bowls for effect. Wal-mart now carries M&Ms in separate colors, including red & black. Or go to M&M's site to order them.
Directions for Twilight Fang Cupcakes
*One box cake mix or your favorite cupcake recipe
*Red pie filling
*Skewers or toothpicks
Bake the cupcakes according the instructions or your recipe. One they are completely cooled, carefully cut the tops off. Scoop out a small amount of cake from the center and fill with pie filling. Gently place top of cupcake back on and frost carefully. Dip the skewers or toothpicks into the pie filling and make the “fang marks” in the icing. Dip them again and dribble some pie filling out of the fang holes.
