Vanilla panna cotta with pomegranite sauce:

This got devoured - nothing was left at the end of the party I took it to last night. Once you got over the appearance, the vanilla against tart pomegranite was really, really good. Lots of shudders, though :cool:

That is excellent, tejon! The flavors sound delicoius as well. I may try it in ranekins for a non-Halloween effect also...

"Under the dusty almond trees, ... stalls were set up which sold banana liquor, rolls, blood puddings, chopped fried meat, meat pies, sausage, yucca breads, crullers, buns, corn breads, puff pastes, longanizas, tripes, coconut nougats, rum toddies, along with all sorts of trifles, gewgaws, trinkets, and knickknacks, and cockfights and lottery tickets."

-- Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 1962 "Big Mama's Funeral"

I used one of the brain shaped molds (like this one). They look remarkably realistic, especially with the sauce accenting all the folds and crevices.

I just love Halloween :cool:

Edited to add: the finger cookies won the contest :biggrin:

If you check back in October on Chocolates with that Showroom Finish or Confections we have made - you'll see a few things. Chocolot does eyeballs every year!
