Halloween party food


Halloween is just around the corner and it's always fun to plan for a spooky Halloween party. If you do celebrate Halloween, you'll love these easy and kid-friendly food ideas for your party!
Mummy DogsCut crescent roll dough into thin strips and wrap around hot dogs. Bake according to crescent package directions and use ketchup or mustard for eyes.
Witch BroomsUse cookie dough to form a broom shape around the end of a large pretzel rod. Use a tooth pick to make indentations in the cookies if you want. If your cookies spread too much during baking just use a knive to trim the edges when they come out of the oven and are still warm. Then decorate as desired.
Witch HatsOne of the easiest Halloween tricks (and treats!). Place a Hershey's Kiss on top of a Keebler Fudge Strip Cookie and you have a little hat. Use the little tubes of frosting you can buy in the grocery store baking isle. Pipe a ring around the outside of the bottom of the kiss and press onto the cookie. It will squeeze out and make the ring around the kiss. Then pipe on the bow.
Spider Web DipThis trick works for pretty much any dip that you could pipe sour cream on top of! Put some sour cream in a plastic baggie with the end snipped off and use it to draw a web pattern. Throw on a fake spider or two and your favorite party dip is instantly creepy!
Spidey Cookies
Red hots and licorice turn oreos into creepy (but kinda cute) spiders. Shoestring licorice is hard to find these days, but Twizzlers makes "Pull-Apart" candy that works perfectly.
Pumpkin Sammies
This is a great staple for a Halloween party spread because it pleases both kids and adults and is something with substance! Use Halloween cookie cutters to cut your bread. Fill some with peanut butter or cream cheese and orange-colored jam (like peach or apricot) for the kiddos, and something more sophisticated like Teriyaki Chicken Salad for the grown ups!
Nutty Ghosts
Nutter Butters are naturally ghost shaped, which make them perfect for dipping! Give them a bath in some almond bark and put on a couple of mini chocolate chips for eyes.
Dirt n' Worms
Another classic. Use chocolate pudding for your mud and put some crushed oreos on top for dirt. Hide those gummy worms in there for eeek factor!
Chocolate Cherry Mice
You'll need marichino cherries for this one. Make sure you buy ones with stems. Drain them and dry them well with paper towells. Dip in almond bark, or chocolate bark. When they are semi dry, attach a chocolate chip for a nose, slivered almonds for ears, and little candies or sprinkles for eyes.
Cheesy Fingers
Super kid friendly- who doesn't love string cheese?? Again, I cut them in half to make them kid-sized. Use the flat side of a knife to make the knuckle marks and attach slivered almonds with a dab of cream cheese for the nails.
Monster Jaws
Quarter apples and take a wedge out of the center of each quarter. Dunk them in water with a little lemon juice to prevent browning. Use slivered almonds for teeth (I toasted mine for color and taste!) Eyes are optional.
