If you're looking forward to a Halloween party but have no idea what to make for your guests, don't worry about searching the internet for hours to find the perfect food options for your party. I've got you covered.
I've made all of these myself (these are pictures of my own creations), so I will let you know what works and what doesn't! Without further ado, here are your spooktacular Halloween recipes:
A lot of Halloween get-togethers feature a table filled with an assortment of finger foods that guests can munch on throughout the night. Here are some ideas I tried out!
SPIDER DEVILED EGGS
For this recipe, I used a basic deviled egg recipe. I put the eggs on medium-high and waited for them to boil. I then removed them from the heat and covered them for 15 minutes. Peeling them was difficult, but I did it! I then mixed two tablespoons of mayo, a teaspoon of mustard, and one-and-a-half tablespoons of relish with some salt and pepper and added in the yolks.
The "spider" on top is made out of black olives, which I am convinced are the worst smelling food in the universe. I cut them in half for the body and cut them into 1/8ths for the legs. Jonathan (the hubby) tried them and said they were great, which makes me feel great since this was my first attempt at making deviled eggs on my own!
Cut your apples into four pieces and remove the core. Cut a mouth-sized slit into the back of the apple. Use the peanut butter to attach the candy eyes, strawberry slice, and sunflower seeds.
This was a really great snack Jonathan and I enjoyed on a weekend afternoon, so I know it will be great for Halloween get-togethers.
If you're having a Halloween dinner party, or you just want to offer something more substantial to your guests, you can make these monstrous mouth-watering meals:
I have two pieces of advice if you're planning on trying this for yourself. First, make sure you skip the cheaper Kraft cheese slices and opt for a cheese that was cut from the block, which they also sell packaged. This cheese is a bit more sturdy. The second is to get burgers that will not shrink too much when you cook them. Half of our cheese was off of the burger and just laying on the bun. Follow those tips for the best looking Burg-O-Lanterns on the block!
The best part of every meal is dessert. For your Halloween dessert, you need to make something that is tasty and follows the Halloween theme! Try out the following recipes for a terrifyingly tasty treat!
These look the best when you serve them in a see-through container. For easy clean-up, I recommend plastic cups.
My husband has always loved this dessert, and I know all of your family and party guests will absolutely love it as well!
I love these because they are so customizable and so cute. I have to give my mom a shout-out for suggesting these. They are sooo cute and I wish I had a party to take them to. But, I guess I will just enjoy these with the hubby for now! Make sure you add your decorations when the chocolate is still melty. Store these in the fridge until you're ready to serve them up to your guests!
I hope these spooky treats made your mouth water. If you try these out for yourself, PLEASE tag me on social media. I'd love to see how your attempts came out! Use #CookingWithGabbie so that I'll see it!
Happy Halloween Cooking!
