It’s almost time for Halloween! Maybe you’re hosting a party or contributing to a potluck. Perhaps your kiddo volunteered you to contribute baked goods to the classroom Halloween party. Or maybe you want to have some unique snacks for Trick-or-Treating. Whatever you’re planning, we have a list of thrilling, spooktacular, delicious and super simple Halloween party snacks that are sure to satisfy all the little monsters in your life.
Create a monstrous appetizer by whipping up a batch of guacamole and transforming it into a tasty Frankenstein look alike. Use some blue corn tortilla chips for the hair; add some sour cream or plain greek yogurt for the whites of the eyes and place some black beans in the center for the pupils (or if you want to get really creepy, use tomatoes for the pupils); add some more black beans for face texture. Bottom line… get creative!
Kids love hotdogs. Well… everyone loves hotdogs. It’s a fact. And everyone loves crescent rolls, too. Combine the two and get a mummified snack. You’ll use the same technique you would with Pigs in a Blanket, except you’ll cut your crescent rolls into small strips to mimic mummification. Dot some eyes on with ketchup and mustard, and serve with ketchup, mustard, and some “creepy” relish.
Everyone loves a seasonal snack mix. The salty and sweet, chewy and crunchy textures bring snackers back for more and more! We love this recipe from the original snack mix makers, Chex. But you can certainly change up your ingredients if you’d like! Replace the candy corn with some Reese’s Pieces or orange and yellow M&M’s. Mix in some marshmallows or gummy worms. Trade out raisins for some craisins or dried cherries. Throw in some popcorn instead of pretzels. The snack mix is yours to conjure up.
All you need are some oranges (or mandarins), a food-safe black marker, and a little bit of drawing talent and you’ve got a cute, healthy snack! Simply draw some faces onto the oranges and let the kids pick their favorite!
Candy Corn catches a lot of flack these days, but it’s tradition, right? Turn this nostalgic treat into a flavorful fruit parfait. Start with a layer of cut up pineapple, add some pieces of mandarin orange (you can use fresh or canned), and top with whipped cream or Cool Whip. Sprinkle some actual candy corn on top and voilà! It’s up to you if you want to make this in individual jars or in one giant bowl.
There are really only two things you need here: pretzel sticks and, of course, Oreos. However, grab some other ingredients to truly make these fun! Find some cookie frosting so you can “glue” the eyes onto the cookie. Grab some candy corn to use for teeth. Make these as cute or as creepy as you want!
A simple, yet festive dessert that all the kids will love. All you’ll need is some instant pudding, some Oreos (vanilla and chocolate will do), some Cool Whip, and some Halloween-inspired garnishes. Shape the cookies into gravestones and use food-safe markers or frosting to decorate the gravestones. Add some gummy worms to make it extra creepy, but extra delicious. Want to make it even simpler? Use packaged pudding cups!
A spooky twist on the classic party punch, this is a great way to let the kids go wild with the garnishes. Choose the sherbet flavor (or color) of your choice, pour in the matching Gatorade, and top with lemon-lime soda. If you’d like, you can place ingredients into a punchbowl instead of making them individually.
You can never go wrong with a classic Rice Krispie Treat. Follow your favorite recipe but take the extra step to use a ghost cookie cutter to cut them up. Pick up some candy eyes, use some cookie icing, or even some chocolate chips to dot some eyes on your ghosts.
A simpler take on the already-simple thumbprint cookie, this recipe uses fudge-striped cookies and Hershey’s kisses. We’d recommend the Hershey’s Hugs so you have a cute striped pattern, but of course, there are cookie frostings and decorations that can make these even cuter!
No Halloween snack stress allowed! These super simple Halloween party snacks are sure to enchant and satisfy the little ghouls and ghosts in your life. We hope you’ll be well-prepared to host a family-friendly celebration that’s both fun and delicious. Enjoy a spooktacular snack feast this spooky season!
