Make a Cheese Candy Corn Platter from your favorite white, orange, and yellow cheeses.  Brie or Goat Cheese for the tip, Cheddar for the middle, and Swiss, Gouda, or Havarti Cheeses for the end!

Here is one for your punch bowl!  Simply take a rubber glove, fill it with water, freeze, and once frozen entirely, cut the rubber glove off.  Then, add your frozen ice hand to your Halloween Punch.
