Whether you are hosting a Halloween party or have signed up to bring extra special treats to the classroom this year, the hungry ghosts and goblins will most likely have a certain level of expectation. Blow those expectations out of the water by serving some of our creepy Halloween party food!
Your youngest superhero and oldest vampire are going to love taking a bite out of our popcorn eyeballs, creepy cheese fingers and monster donut holes. It might take your arachnophobes an extra second to conquer their fears, but our crazy yummy spider deviled eggs and buckeye spiders will eventually win them over. And just when all the adults can’t stop talking about how good and clever your spread is, you can really wow them with a ‘Mind Eraser’ or ‘Frankenstein’s Blood’ test tube shot.
We’ve got the recipes for Halloween success and the keys to creating a serious amount of memories—all you have to do is unlock the door and walk on through…if you dare!
halloween recipes your ghoulish guests will love!
The kiddos get all the free candy, so we decided to head to the lab to create some tasty concoctions of the alcoholic variety for the adults. Our hair-raising brew of ‘Frankenstein’s Blood’ and ‘Mind Eraser’ shots, served in test tubes, will certainly add a playful twist to your Halloween event and your guests are going to love slurping them down!
OK, our witch may not be melting, but we sure dropped a delicious looking stack of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on her instead! Part snack and part DIY project, our adorable sand’witch’ is an inexpensive way to turn an old standard into a festive Halloween treat the kiddos will go crazy for.
black widow buckeyes
You can’t get much simpler than buckeyes—there are only three ingredients in the dough! And since the big one is peanut butter, you know they are always going to be awesome. A totally kid friendly recipe, we shaped our dough into balls and added pretzel legs to create spider shaped candies that are actually pretty darn cute and tasty.
eye see youuuuuu!
Creepy? Yep. Ghoulish? Uh-huh. Everything your kiddo is looking for in a Halloween party snack? You bet! All you need are five ingredients to whip up these bone-chilling eyeball treats: popcorn, soft caramel candies, butter, white candy coating and red piping gel. These yummy eyeballs will give new meaning to the phrase ‘The treat table is staring at me.’
point the finger
Gross as it may seem, the kiddos get a huge kick out of eating things that look like body parts on Halloween. Since we aim to please, we fashioned witch fingers out of string cheese and bell peppers, and the result was a healthy snack disguised as a ghoulish Halloween treat. Total high five, Mom!
spider senses tingling?
Deviled eggs are always a hit, even if they are dressed up with black olive spiders! This creepy but super delish recipe is perfect for your Halloween crowd and is made with healthy olive oil instead of your standard mayo. Now remember, they are not actually spiders, so just close your eyes and take a bite already!
These yummy little monsters are made with store bought donut holes and colored shredded coconut. No monster will look the same and the possibilities are absolutely endless! Your kiddos are going to have a blast helping you make these and will have even more fun showing them off to their friends on the big night!
