8 Spooky Recipes for You Halloween Party

Posted On: October 26th, 2018

Halloween parties are a whole lot of spooktacular fun, and it seems everyone I know is hosting one. They are a great way to get adults involved in the holiday. One aspect that I really like is the decorations and themed food that go into throwing a great party. Even if you aren’t throwing a party, Halloween-themed treats are fun to take to the office or just make for yourself.

1.       Brownie cupcakes: I made these last year for my daughter’s daycare room, and they were a huge hit. They look intimidating but are actually super easy to make especially because you aren’t making the brownie or cake batter from scratch.

2.       Spider web taco dip: This is a fun twist on a party staple. You can easily change out ingredients to your liking.

3.       Hot dog spiders: These are actually super cute. Also, they appear to be pretty easy to put together; the most time-consuming part is cutting the little spider legs. I know my little one would love these.

4.       Bewitched Halloween popcorn: Here’s another fun twist on a classic snack. If you have never had M&Ms in your popcorn, you are missing out! This snack is going into our home’s snack rotation for sure.

5.       Roasted pumpkin seeds: Instead of throwing away your pumpkin seeds, use them to make this delicious recipe. Pumpkin seeds are a great healthy snack if you are trying to stay on track this Halloween.

6.       Tangerine pumpkins and banana ghosts: Another healthy recipe is this one for tangerines shaped like pumpkins and bananas turned into ghosts. This is a cute way to display a healthy alternative at your party. 


7.       Candy corn Jell-O: What a fun idea! I love the way the display looks. It doesn’t seem like a difficult recipe to make either. You could always turn these into Jell-O shots for an adult-only party.

8.       Halloween Chex Mix: Chex has a special Halloween mix recipe on its website that I just had to share. This would be a great snack to take into school for the little ones Halloween parties.
