Don’t let throwing a Halloween Party be a frustration for you. Planning a party sometimes can be just what the doctor ordered (or therapist, whatever floats your boat). While planning the food for a Halloween party may seem incredibly daunting, especially with other things piled on your plate, it isn’t the end of the world. Halloween food ideas are sometimes the most fun to put together because you can really get creative in the process. There are TONS of Halloween food recipes available, some of which are extremely easy to tackle. Take a look.
Bobbing For Apples….Sort Of
You don’t necessarily need to set up bobbing for apples in order to have apples available for guests to eat. Let’s be honest, unless you’re that first bob, you probably don’t want to line up after anybody to give it a go. But you can still find a nice metal bucket (Home Depot, Lowes, etc) and fill it up with ice water and fresh apples for people to grab throughout the party. This gives guests a nice, healthy option for a quick snack on-the-go.
The best thing about making cupcakes is that you can do anything and everything with them. Much like Halloween invitations, hmm? Cupcakes are sugary, sweet, and decorative which is really a lot of what Halloween is all about. There are so many different recipes for cupcakes out there, plus ways to decorate them, you can easily get your guests in the spirit of Halloween simply by putting a few of these bad boys out on the tables.
You probably need a bit more sustenance than simply loading everyone up on sugar, which is where mini pizzas come to the rescue! Mini pizzas are easy to make, easy to bake and easy to serve. You can make them ahead of time and keep them heated, or simply pop them in the oven during the party and have them ready to go when everyone gets hungry. This is an inexpensive way to feed a bunch of people at once without having to spend the whole evening in the kitchen.
Chips & Dip With a Twist
You really can’t go wrong with having chips and dip on the table. People can munch throughout the night whenever they feel inclined and all you have to do is refill. Whether it’s salsa, guacamole, bean dip or more, you can go the extra mile and fill up a scooped out pumpkin! Buy some of the dark tortilla chips to mix with the light, plus maybe even an orange-colored cheese dip to make it extra festive. Place a few votive candles around the table and you’re set!
Mummy Hot Dogs
Pigs in a blanket is always an easy, go-to appetizer during parties. Yet, when you add a little bit of Halloween flair to the mix then you’re able to make the pigs turn into mummies and fit right in with your decor. Pig mummies are easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time. To find the recipe for these Mummy Hot Dogs, click here.
