Are you having a Halloween party this year? Or do you want to have some extra snacks for your friends to munch on when they stop by with trick-or-treaters? Here are some fantastically spooky fun and festive recipes, as well as a few tricks for making fabulous treats.
Homemade Halloween Treats for Everyone
Crunchy Crab Cake Spiders – Crunchy crab cake spiders are a delicious appetizer. Use the crab cake as the body and long thin strips of red bell peppers for the legs. Voilà you have a creepy spider.
Ghostly Grilled Cheese – Ghostly grilled cheese are sure to be a hit with the little ones. They can even get in on the fun of making them because they are so easy!! All you need is a ghost-shaped cookie cutter (which can be found at most large craft stores), some bread, cheese, and butter. Use the cookie cutter to cut out the center of the bread and munch on the scraps while you cook.
Ghoulish Grins – Ghoulish grins are a fun and healthy snack that the kids will also enjoy making. Two apple slices make the grin—fill the center with peanut butter and use marshmallows or other small candy for the teeth. Set a bunch of them on a large platter, and they will be sure to crack a smile.
Deviled Eyeballs – Deviled eyeballs are a real creepy snack. Use these helpful tips to turn an average deviled egg into a realistic-looking eyeball. The pimento-stuffed olive works perfectly as the center of the eye, and red food coloring is used to draw in the veins. Your friends will be so impressed.
Monster Mash – Monster mash is a yummy black bean dip. Chili peppers and taco seasoning give it that great spicy bite. Serve it with some tortilla chips for dipping.
Cheese Ball Goblin – The cheese ball goblin will make a great centerpiece for your table of treats. Trick your friends into thinking you spent hours on this simple cheese sculpture. The green tortilla chip ears, purple cabbage hair, and olive eyes bring this cheese ball to life. Serve it with an assortment of crackers and bread, and let your guests giggle while they nibble.
