Halloween Party Food Ideas

I'm having a Halloween party and I have the decorations set but I need a little help on ideas with the food. I have eyeball ice cubes and I'm putting little plastic spiders on toothpicks but what else can I do? Thanks!

I made the cutest cake. Easy! Mix a cake mix pour in a bundt pan and bake. Place on platter and put orange icing on it. Take Little Debbie swiss cake rolls and put in middle for "stem". Soften a large hershey bar and cut out a mouth and eyes. Very cute!!

Are you wanting gross scary food items? If so, use a 13 X 9 cake pan and fill it with granola cereal, then place unwrapped tootsie rolls scattered throughout the pan. This is called "kitty litter".

3/4 C. shoestring potatoes or chow mein noodles

ketchup, bbq sauce and/or mustard for decorating

1 C. ranch dressing
1 T. ketchup

1. Heat oven to 375. Unroll dough; separate at perfeorations into 12
breadsticks. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each breadstick in half


crosswise, making 24 pieces.
2. Wrap each piece of dough around center of each sausage, pinching to seal &
leaving each end of sausage showing. Place seam side down & 1/2 inch apart on
ungreased large cookie sheet.
3. Bake 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie
sheet; place on serving plate or tray. Cool 2 minutes
4. Insert shoestring potatoes into baked dough to resemble legs & antennae.
Decorate "bugs" with dots or stripes of ketchup.
5. Spread dressing in 9 inch glass pie plate or on dinner plate. Spoon ketchup
into small resealable food storage plastic bag. Seal bag & cut tiny hole in
bottom corner. Squeeze bag to draw a coil of ketchup over ranch dressing. Drag

Anti-Vampire Popcorn
Keys: Halloween
Yield: 1 Servings


1 bag Pillsbury Microwave popcorn
2 cup Crisp wheat square cereal
2 cup Chedar cheese-flavored goldfish crackers
1 3/4 oz Can shoestring potatoes
1 cup Unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup Margarine or butter
1 tsp Dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Onion powder
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese.
MICROWAVE INSTRUCTIONS: Prepare popcorn as directed on the packaged.
Remove any unpopped kernels. In a large bowl, combine popcorn, cereal,
crackers, shoestring poatoes and peanuts.
Place margarine in a 2-cup microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave on
high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in parsley flakes,
chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Drizzle seasoned mixture
over popcorn mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Toss until evenly coated.
Transfer half of mixture to ungreased 12x8 inch microwave safe dish.

Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes or until thorougly heated, stirring once
halfway through heating. Spread on paper towels to cool. Repeat with
remaining mixture.
Makes 12 cups.
The garlic in this popcorn keeps vampires from getting too friendly!
Another way people used to keep vampires away was to scatter mustard
seeds on their roofs. Supposedly if a vampire saw some mustard seeds he
would have to stop and count each one. People scattered so many mustard
seeds on their roofs that it would take all night for the vampire to
count them. By that time it was dawn and the vampire had to return to
its grave.

Back when I had a larger apartment and my own Halloween parties, one of the things I did was get a few mini pumpkins, hollow them out, and put dips & salsa in them. My guests thought it was a great idea and very festive! You could also hollow out a large pumpkin, line it with plastic wrap, and put chips or other foods in it. Have a great party!

This is a great twist on candy or chocolate dipped apples. Instead of using a stick from an arts and crafts store use an actual stick! We picked some good strong sticks, make then the correct length and shave off the end. Clean the end if you want but the part of the apple it's stuck in does not get eaten. You can decorate around it with leaves..etc.

Road kill puppy dip platter: One year at a work party, we had a scary foods contest and this one won! Rip the back and stuffing out of a stuffed toy. One laying down works best, and I used a dog. Place in the hole you ripped out, a bowl with a pinkish or green dip to serve with chips or crackers. Yeah, yuck. Now add some icing tinted red for blood and make sure the dip is chunky!
