With halloween just around the corner, I’m sure you’ve been trying to figure out what to do and what plans to make for the most anticipated day of the month. Maybe you’re planning on going out trick or treating by yourself or with your kids, perhaps you want to go to a Halloween party that your friend is hosting, or maybe you’re hosting a little Halloween get-together of your own this year! When hosting a Halloween party, you have to have a spooky and spunky music playlist, some ghoulish decorations and of course, plenty of cool snacks and foods for your friends and guests. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party this year or just staying in to cozy up and watch a scary movie, these top five fun Halloween themed snacks will get you in the spirit!
Hosting a Halloween party, shin-dig, whatever you want to call it, can be so fun and give you the opportunity to show your creative side not only in terms of decorations, but also with food too! Halloween is a golden opportunity to really have fun and show how creative you can be with your food. Other holidays, of course, offer the same chances, but not quite like Halloween does.
Fun Halloween Party Snacks – Crescent Mummy Dogs
Who doesn’t love a good hot dog? I bet you never thought of a Halloween-themed dog before! These crescent mummy dogs are the perfect little snack to have at a Halloween party or even feed to your kids before they go trick or treating! Not only are these fun treats inexpensive to make, but they also only need three ingredients to make! Using one can of crescent rolls, slices of American cheese, hot dogs, and ketchup or mustard (for the mummy eyes), you can make the one awesome Halloween snack that people are guaranteed to love.
Fun Halloween Party Snacks – Ghost Pizza Bagels:
Remember the pizza bagel bites from your childhood? They were always one of my favorite snacks as a kid. If it were socially acceptable to eat them as a 23 year-old adult, I probably would. That’s besides the point. Halloween is so much about the fun and nostalgia of being a kid, and what better way to remember that than with ghost pizza bagels? Just like your childhood, these ghoulish snacks are made with mini bagels, pizza sauce, Mozzarella cheese, and some black olives (for ghost eyes)! Another inexpensive way to be creative on Halloween with food!
Fun Halloween Party Snacks – Deviled Eggs
By itself, the name “deviled eggs” is perfect for Halloween. These addicting snacks can also be perfectly festive for the holiday outside of their name too! Combining delicious hard-boiled eggs with mayonnaise, dijon mustard, the iconic paprika garnish and some chives to mimic pumpkin stems, deviled eggs are a great snack for adults and kids too. If you want to get extra creative, you can dye your egg mixture a funky color and add spooky designs!
Vampire Mouth Sandwich Cookies
A party can’t be complete without some kind of cookie. These vampire mouth sandwich cookies are not only cool and spooky looking, but they’re also delicious and easy to make! To make these yummy treats, all you need is a tube of chocolate chip cookie dough, a can of vanilla frosting, red food coloring, mini marshmallows and slivered almonds. It’s just that easy! These ones could be fun to make with friends or your kids to get everyone in the Halloween spirit.
Every meal must have a balance of savory and sweet, and this monster munch is the perfect combination of both. Tie this treat up in cute Halloween bags to hand out to the kids in the neighborhood or cuddle up with some much on the couch and watch a movie- it’s good for several occasions! Sweet and salty kettle corn is mixed with pretzels, candy corn, m&ms, and Halloween-colored nonpareils then drizzled with semisweet and white chocolate. Drooling yet? Just don’t sit around large quantities of monster munch because you’ll be spellbound and eat the entire batch!
Feeling spooky yet? Be sure your Halloween is complete with these five fun snacks and let me know how you enjoy them!
