I thought I would start with the easiest and ickiest recipe of my Halloween foods….Chocolate Covered Cockroaches!

Here in Vegas we get a lot of roaches.  I have a great phobia of them.  They really freak me out.  But I decided if they were covered in chocolate they may not be all that bad!



So, here they are.  They are SUPER yummy


  • whole pitted dates
  • dipping chocolate (or milk chocolate chips)

Directions:  Melt the dipping chocolate according to package directions.  Dip the dates in leaving a little of the “roach” showing.  Looks best if you leave the end that the pit came out of because it more closely resembles a cockroach.  Place on parchment paper and refrigerate until firm.  Be sure to label them before serving!  Enjoy freaking out your guests!


  1. Oh my gosh! AAAAAAH!!!! I never would have guessed they were dates!

  2. The dates have the exact color and sheen of a real cockroach!!! Wow. Creepy. Bet they are good, though!
