Creepy Halloween Party Food
Planning a Halloween party? There are certain spooky snacks you just can’t forget to serve to your ghoulish guests – otherwise it would just be a plain, old, anytime-of-year party, not a super-scary fright-night fiesta! Take our word for it – the following Halloween party snacks are a must – unless you want to scare your guests away!
This super-easy recipe will scare your party guests silly! Just take a can of tomato soup and a package of crackers that are shaped sort of like fingers. Cook the soup and add a few “fingers” to each bowl!
These shortbread cookies look like fingers with sharp, red fingernails at the ends! You’ll have to get help from an adult to make some easy shortbread cookies – but instead of shaping the dough like normal, round cookies, roll each piece of dough into the shape of a finger. Get a package of red almonds and stick one at the end of each “finger” to make it look like a pointy witch’s fingernail!
Ask an adult to help you make an icebox-type dough that will be easy to color with food coloring and will easily push through a colander to make long, noodle-like strands of dough. The color you should use to dye the dough should be a sickly blue/purple color – make sure the food coloring you use is OK to eat! Then, push the dough through a colander so you end up with gray-ish spaghetti-like pieces. Loosely pat handfuls of the noodly dough pieces into brain shapes before baking.
Buy a can of lychee fruits and stuff each one with a grape (red or green grapes). Serve in a hollowed-out gourd.
Crush a full bag of Oreo cookies and spread half the bag in the bottom of the pan. Save the other half for the top. Mix chocolate pudding and whipped cream and spread over the Oreo crumbs in the pan. Spread the remaining crumbs over the pudding, covering completely. Use whole cookies to represent tombstones – you can even pipe on sayings with icing (like “R.I.P.”). Just use your imagination to decorate your graveyard!
Cut the crusts off of some slices of white bread. Spread peanut butter and jam on the bread. Roll the sandwiches up. Ta da! Bones with blood and marrow for dinner!
Easy Edible Insects
Melt a package of butterscotch chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove chips from heat and stir in a cup of peanuts and three cups of chow mein noodles. Drop teaspoon by teaspoon onto waxed paper and cool.
For deep-red ice to serve in drinks, try freezing prepared cherry Kool-Aid in your ice-cube tray instead of plain old water!
