When throwing a Halloween party, it can be fun to serve food that related to the holiday. It gives you the chance to be creative with the Halloween theme and still make sure everyone has something to eat. Here are a few ideas for Halloween party food.
For starters, you could cook hotdogs wrapped in biscuits so that only the tip of the hotdogs are sticking out. They will then look like fingers (finger food, anyone?). You could also cook the hotdogs in the same way, but instead of calling them fingers, you can call them mummies. You can place bottles of mustard and ketchup on the side for anyone who wants to use them. Here is a fun hint: you can label the ketchup bottle as “Blood”.
If anyone likes to eat olives, then here is a fun idea. Buy a jar or two of green olives (with the red spots on them) from the grocery store. Dump them into a bowl and label the bowl as “Monster Eyes”.
Take some red Jell-O and green Jell-O and mash them up in separate bowls (red in one, green in the other). Label the bowl with the red Jell-O “Blood and Guts” and label the bowl with the Jell-O “Monster Blood”.
Do you remember the candy that looks like mini dog bones? Look for a pack of the candy dog bones in the candy aisle of the grocery store. White or colored will do. Pour them into a bowl and label the bowl as “Bones”. You can also leave the bowl unlabeled, as the bones will speak for themselves.
If you want to serve some sweet Halloween party food, then you can serve Halloween cupcakes. You can use jelly beans or sprinkles as eyes and use Twizzlers as the legs, and you will have a spider cupcake! You can also use white and colored icing and decorate the cupcakes as eyeballs. If you want something simple, use orange, black, or even white icing and decorate with Halloween sprinkles or cupcake toppers.
Of course, you can also bake some Halloween cookies and set them out on a Halloween plate. You can also pour Halloween candy into a Halloween themed candy bowl.
For drinks, you can serve fruit punch and mark it off as blood. Green drinks can be marked as “Monster Blood”. Orange soda can fit the Halloween colors. You can also serve other drinks, even if they are not Halloween themed.
You can also serve other food, even if they are not Halloween themed, to keep a variety of food on hand. This can include hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, pretzels, and more. You may even come up with your own ideas for Halloween party food! Have fun cooking and serving up the food and Happy Halloween!
