Have a fun and spooky night watching an episode (or multiple episodes) of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror and enjoying these fun recipes! For a cocktail, make the Marge-arita. It's an orange juice margarita with a blue curacao floater so it looks like Marge. For the treat, make some spooky homemade raspberry jam filled donuts. Perfect for Halloween!

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Dinner and a Movie

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Movie Night


Can you believe that the 32nd episode of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror airs this year? When creating recipes for The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror, I wanted to create recipes that could fit for all of the Halloween episodes so it's not just tied to one.

There's one food that everybody thinks of when they hear The Simpsons- a pink doughnut with sprinkles. So I created a Simpsons classic with a spooky twist. Let's get to it!

31 Days of Halloween

These Simpsons themed recipes were created for my 31 Days of Halloween where every day in October I come up with Halloween snacks and drink recipe to pair with horror films, Halloween movies, or a Halloween activity. It's so much fun and a great way to celebrate the spooky holiday.

The Marge-arita

Simpsons Cocktail Recipe

The Simpsons Cocktail

I present to you- the Marge-arita- a margarita that looks like Marge Simpson!

The bottom of this cocktail is a orange juice and lime juice combination (AKA: Marge's face). The top of this cocktail is a blue curacao and silver tequila combination (AKA: Marge's hair).

It's a classic margarita with an orange tang! I garnished with maraschino cherries to resemble Marge's red bead necklace.

Raspberry Jelly Filled Donut

Raspberry Filled Doughnut Recipe

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Treat

Let's make that Homer pink donut into something spooky! These are my raspberry jelly-filled donuts, but for The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror viewing they are known as blood-filled pink donuts.

This donut is made from a delicious yeast dough, allowed to rise twice, fried, and then filled with tasty homemade raspberry jam. Lastly, it's covered in pink icing and topped with some sprinkles.

To make the pink icing, combine 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1-2 tablespoons of milk or water, and some pink food coloring. You want it to be pretty thick so you may need to add a little more powdered sugar to thicken it up.

These donuts are soo addicting. I can't even imagine how many of these donuts Homer would eat. My husband definitely ate his fair share of them!
