2. Spider Web Oreos
Creamy vanilla filling sandwiched between two decadent chocolate cookies. What’s not to love about Oreos?
But you can take everyone’s favorite sandwich cookie up a notch by giving it a Halloween-inspired makeover. You simply have to dunk the cookies in melted white chocolate and let them chill in the fridge.
Once the cookies are chilled, drizzle circles of melted dark chocolate to create “spider webs.” Whether you’re hosting a bunch of teenagers or adults, you can never go wrong with spider web Oreos.
3. Mummy-Inspired Desserts
Nothing screams “Halloween party” louder than desserts that look like tiny Egyptian mummies. It’s one of those snacks that’ll leave your guests salivating and spellbound at the same time.
While mummy-inspired desserts look like a work of art, they’re fairly easy to make. The best part is that you can choose from a variety of options, including brownies, cakesicles, cookies, and macarons.
Also, you’ll need tons of white chocolate and a piping bag. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle it on your favorite cookies or brownies to make them look like ancient mummies. Don’t forget to add a pair of edible googly eyeballs for a more realistic look.
4. Deviled Egg Eyeballs
Deviled eggs are a staple appetizer at any house party. So, why should Halloween be an exception?
Give the good old deviled eggs a makeover by topping the yolk with a slice of olive. Use beetroot juice or edible food color to draw eerie patterns all over the egg white. You could take the fright quotient up a notch by adding beetroot puree to the egg yolk mix too.
Don’t be surprised if your guests gasp at the sight of these scary eyeballs but can’t keep their hands off of them. The best part is that it’ll take you less than 30 minutes to prepare this classic party appetizer.
5. Curry Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
The arrival of fall coincides with the onset of pumpkin season. If you want to give your guests something to munch on, roasted pumpkin seeds are an excellent option. You’ll find them at any DK/ALON convenience store or gas station.
But if you want to go that extra mile, try tossing the seeds in spicy curry seasoning after roasting them. It’s one of the easiest Halloween party snacks that’ll make your guests gasp for breath (literally).
6. Hummus and Veggies
If you want to include a healthy snack option on the menu, you can’t go wrong with the classic combination of hummus and veggies. Get store-bought hummus if you don’t want to go through the hassle of making it from scratch.
Look for interesting flavors, such as pumpkin or beetroot hummus, for a quirky twist. The vast abundance of fall vegetables will ensure that your guests never run out of options. You can serve them raw or roast them in the oven. You could even serve pickled veggies for that extra zing.
7. Halloween Candy Bark
There’s something about the festivities that makes you crave a crunchy, lip-smacking chocolate bark. You can put your unique spin on a regular chocolate bark by using a variety of signature Halloween candies.
Temper some dark chocolate, spread it on a piece of parchment, and top it with candy corn, M&Ms, and other sweet treats. It’s just the dessert you need for a memorable end to your Halloween party.
While the threat of the pandemic still looms large, there are ways to organize socially distanced gatherings with your loved ones. Halloween is the perfect time to get together with your friends and family for a night of fun and laughter.
Light up your party with quick and easy snacks that don’t take hours of prep. Get store-bought cookies, chocolates, candies, and other treats. Let your imagination run wild as you turn them into ghoulish but delicious food items.
