We really love Halloween. When I was growing up my dad went all out for Halloween, so I think my love for Halloween grew from that. It’s just such a fun and silly holiday! Here are some pictures of the spooky eats from a Halloween party we hosted a few years ago.
Nutter Butter Ghosts: Simple to do. Cover Nutter Butters in White Candy Coating and use black gel or chocolate to create ghost faces.
This was a yummy pumpkin dip using pecans to make the jack-o-lantern face. We used a bat shaped cookie cutter to cut tortillas into bat shapes. Then we sprinkled with some cinnamin and sugar and baked them.
These spider breadsticks were the perfect match for a caldran of chili.
These little cutie bugs were fun. It was also simple (do you see a pattern here). I always consider the time it will take to complete a certain party element to ensure that the impact to time ratio is good. These were snack sized snickers, a tube of red frosting to make legs and some m&m’s for eyes.
More treats! I love treats…especially for Halloween because there are a million ways to make fun Halloween themed treats. Below there is a chocolate cake frosted with white frosting and a little black cake gel to make a spider web. A halloween party must have is dirt! This one always reminds me of my aunt Debbie. This is a super simple crowd pleaser…well it always makes me smile. Dirt = Chocolate Pudding, crushed chocolate crackers (chocolate Oreos work) sprinkled on top and then some gummy worms coming out of the dirt.
Another worm dish! This was apple pie filling in a baking dish toped with pre-made pie crust cut in strips and then layered randomly on top.
The food for this party was so much fun! YUMMY!!
