1. Zombie Kettle Corn
This recipe makes rainbow-colored kettle corn, but if you just use green food coloring in place of the other colors, you have a perfectly creepy treat for your next Halloween movie marathon. This recipe is very kid-friendly, too! If you’re not sure what to make for a group of kids this is perfect because you can do this on the cheap. Tasty and cheap? Scary awesome! Serve in these cute containers.
2. Worms with Blood Sauce
Another kid-friendly meal, nothing is as easy as spaghetti. This dinner can be made spooky with just a few tweaks like I mentioned in this post. Simply add your favorite color of food coloring in a plastic bag and work it around your cooked noodles. Then place a few drops of coloring in your alfredo sauce and Boo! You have spooky spaghetti. Don’t forget your disposable plates for easy clean up.
3. Toxic Waste Mac and Cheese
I made this recipe for a Halloween party a few years back and it was such a hit with my nieces and nephews. It’s a great way to sneak in some veggies on your kids. Pair this with some witches slime punch and you have a spook-tacular meal that will feed a crowd.
4. Witches Snack Board
This witches snack board can’t get easier! Everything is store-bought and you can simply use the image as a guide to place all your treats so they look delightful and frightful. Pair this snack board with some popcorn and you can have a Halloween movie marathon with all the good stuff right at your fingertips.
5. Spider Web Guacamole
The perfect pairing for your Dia de los Muertos fiesta, this spider web guacamole is simple to create with just a few ingredients. Either using store-bought or your favorite guacamole recipe, just place thin sour cream circles around your guac and have the circles get smaller as you reach the center. Take a toothpick at the center circle and drag it toward the edge. Repeat around the whole bowl of guac and it will turn into a spider web. This is a great show-stopping appetizer that looks like you put a lot of work in it. Don’t forget the spiders!
6. Jalapeno Popper Mummies
Another deceivingly delicious party-pleaser, these jalapeno popper mummies come together quick with some crescent roll dough and your classic jalapeno popper recipe. Just wrap thin slices of crescent dough around your popper and bake it in the oven with an egg wash over the top. The results are terrifyingly spicy and delicious! Serve on this cute platter.
7. Monster Burgers
Monster burgers couldn’t be more simple and couldn’t be more fun! Whether these are for kids or adults, everyone will appreciate the spooky details of these mini sliders. Just by looking at the photo you can tell that the key here is where you place the ingredients. Have fun with this one!
8. Eye Poppers
These eye-popping cake pops are so fun! I love the fork instead of the traditional stick to give it more of a spooky and gruesome Halloween vibe. Pro tip: Use your favorite bakery cake donuts in place of cake mix. The cake pop dough will come together without the frosting and you simply dip the ball in the white chocolate. Place an eyeball candy on top and boo! You have an eyeball to sink your teeth in.
9. Haunted Eggs
This is such a fun take on hard-boiled eggs! Boil eggs like you normally do, then crack them all around on the counter top and place them in a plastic bag with some food coloring and work the color around the eggs until completely coated. The food coloring will seep through the broken shell and color the egg, revealing a spooky design when you peel them. I made these for breakfast and my kiddos ate them up! Serve these as a meal or as a deviled egg appetizer at your Halloween party.
10. Witches Potion
The best of both worlds, a witches potion with vodka or sans vodka to please the varied palates of your guests. This classic lime punch is flavored with lime gelatin and pineapple juice, which sounds refreshing! I like the idea of having one drink that can be used for both adults and kids. Serve with these straws to make it extra witchy.
