Halloween is coming up, and if you’ve already got your outfits chosen for you and your significant other, it’s time to decide whether you’re going to a party or throwing a party. And, of course, if you’re throwing a party you’re going to need to come up with some Halloween themed party food. I’d like to make a few suggestions in this article.
Here are 20 Halloween food ideas.
Everyone hates spiders, but everyone loves Oreos, so if you make Oreo spider’s you’ll essentially be making a very neutral kind of food. And it’s so easy! All you need is to shove some sticks into the white cream of an Oreo and you’re done!
The beauty of Halloween food is that there are some very clear symbols that are associated with the evening. Spiders, pumpkins, bats, witches, etc. So, if you decorate your cupcakes with any of these symbols — you’re golden. And making a cupcake look like a pumpkin is just so simple. You’d be a fool to not try it out.
Who doesn’t want to eat something that looks like the severed fingers of a human being? And on a night like Halloween it seems like the perfect finger food.
I love bad puns almost as much as I love food.
And if fingers just aren’t cutting it, why not make a pie that looks like a whole hand? The key here is to make it either a raspberry pie or a cherry pie, so that when you cut it open it looks like the whole thing is filled with blood. The creepier you make it, the closer you’ll be to the overall theme of Halloween.
Mummies in a Blanket
Everyone knows that pigs in a blanket are a great party food. They’re easy to make, really easy to serve, and really easy to eat. If you get the dough right they won’t even leave any crumbs behind. So, all you have to change in the recipe is to use a little less dough, so that it looks like your little piggies are wrapped like mummies.
The “Sweet Tooth”
Take two cookies, put some jam in-between them, and then use marshmallows (the small ones you usually use for cocoa in the winter) to make them look like tiny teeth. This snack is really easy to make and really is going to add to the overall “Halloween” look of your food table.
Freaked Out Donuts
All donuts are already 90% on their way to looking like the terrified open mouths. So, all you have to do is add some eyes to the decoration and you’ve got your Halloween snack ready to go.
