At our parties, food disappears faster than you can say “bone” appetit! I display our menu in a scary font to announce the creepy specialties of the haunted house.
Here’s a sampling of our favourite frightening foods:
mozzarella cheese strings with green pepper “nails”
Ritz crackers and peanut butter with pretzel “legs” and chocolate chip “eyes”
apple “mouths” with slivered almond “teeth”
chocolate-covered shortbread cookies topped with Hershey’s kisses
cookie and pretzel “brooms” drizzled with chocolate
Cream cheese covered bagels decorated with red gel and sweet pickle.
How To -Spread cream cheese on mini bagels. Cover the bagel hole with a slice of sweet gherkin pickle. Use red decorating gel to add “veins” and “pupils”.
Bare Bones Shortcut
If all that sounds devilishly delicious but way too involved, here are some easier options.
Green grapes already look like eyeballs and sliced kiwis are pretty creepy, too.
For vampires who prefer something less meaty! Don’t forget to include some brain-like cauliflower. Sometimes I use a small, hollowed-out cauliflower to hold the veggie dip.
Bugles corn snacks (they look like witches’ hats), Goldfish crackers, gummy worms, kettle corn or popcorn, and candy corn all get gobbled up at our parties. Give snacks like popcorn a Halloween twist by mixing in some candy corn or candy pumpkins. You can also serve snacks like crackers and popcorn in Halloween-themed paper baking cups
