Halloween is one of the sweetest holidays, thanks to the abundance of treats baked into most of the holiday traditions. So when you’re doing Halloween party planning, there are so many spooky, tasty, fun Halloween-themed treats to include.
These snacks will help make your Halloween party skele-fun for the whole family!
Crescent Mummy Dogs
Pigs in a blanket are a popular choice for kids finger foods for a reason, and this recipe gives them a festive Halloween twist. Using crescent roll dough, press it into rectangles and cut them into strips. Wrap the strips of dough around hot dogs, adding small slices of cheese if desired.
After baking the mummy dogs, you can use condiments to decorate them with eyes or other facial features. Your party guests will love this boo-tiful dish!
Decorate Your Own Tasty Jack-O’-Lantern
Carving a jack-o’-lantern isn’t the only way to enjoy the Halloween tradition. Let your party guests decorate their own tasty jack-o’-lantern using whatever treat you prefer. Use a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter to make cookies or cut brownies into pumpkin shapes. You could also use cupcakes with orange icing.
Once you have your “pumpkins” ready, set out candies, edible eyeballs and frosting and let your guests decorate them to enjoy right away or take home.
No-Bake Oreo Spider Truffles
To make these adorable no-bake spider truffles, here’s what you’ll need: a package of Double Stuff Oreo Cookies, a tub of cookies and cream frosting, black candy melts or chocolate candy melts and candy eyes. Crush the cookies using a food processor or rolling pin, then put ⅔ of the crumbs in a bowl and reserve a tablespoon of frosting.
Next, combine the ⅓ of the cookie crumbs with the rest of the frosting. Scoop them into balls, rolling them into your palms, then coat them in the crumbs. Melt the candy melts and use them to create L-shaped legs on parchment paper. When they set, use four legs per side to create the spider, then use the frosting to place the candy eyes. Yum!
Halloween Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
This is an easy one! Use your favorite deviled egg recipe, adding some paprika to give the yoke an orange hue. After the deviled eggs are assembled, use a piece of chive or gherkin to make the “stem” of the pumpkin. If you want to turn your pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, you can cut black olives into small triangles and mouth shapes.
Spooky Pudding Cups
Your dessert table will shine with the addition of spooky pudding cups. Layer pudding, cookie crumbs and decorative elements to make a spooky scene. For example, chocolate pudding, cookie crumbs and cookie gravestones can make a spooky graveyard scene. Or add gummy worms for a creepy twist.
Pistachio pudding can look like slime or be used to make Frankenstein’s monster with some candy eyes and black licorice for a mouth. Vanilla pudding can be made into a ghost with a few candy or frosting facial features. If you want to get extra creative, you can use food coloring to make different colors of pudding and use candy to make multicolored pudding monsters!=
