This Halloween, pull off the perfect party appetizer ensemble with help from a few scary good ideas that we assembled. Your haunted celebration is sure to be a hit!
Check out these supernatural snack ideas:
#1 – Spiderweb Spread
First, every awesome party needs an equally delicious dip. This divine dish combines all your favorite Taco Tuesday ingredients into one delectable dip for your ghostly guests to enjoy! Savor the flavors of guacamole, refried beans, iceberg lettuce, cheese, tomato, black olives, and sour cream. Plus, this design arranges them all in the form of a spiderweb (No spiders included). How frighteningly festive! Overall, the entire preparation time takes roughly only 10 minutes, making this the perfect choice for when you are in a pinch.
Tip: Add some jalapeños for an extra kick!
Next, this classic Fall creation wins the ballot for simplest, yet sweetest treat to include in your appetizer spread. You need only 3 ingredients to quickly crank out this proven winner: water, apples, and caramel dip. Kids especially love to bite into these easy-to-prepare candy treats. You can even have the kiddos help out with the process! With 20 minutes of preparation and only 1 hour for them to chill, they finish in just the right amount of time so that kids won’t lose their patience! Not to mention, the caramel-dipped apples’ sweetness complements the spicy sensation from the Spiderweb Spread.
Tip: Choose NEW crisp SnapDragon Apples for this recipe for a sweet, “monster crunch!” They also provide hints of vanilla and spice. Find them in our stores through Fall.
Nothing says, “Happy Halloween!” better than a sweet treat. While you’ll need to let this next recipe cool for several hours, the end result totally warrants the wait. Try these Happy Halloween Dessert Cups for a refreshing, bite-sized sweet that captures the colors of the holiday (orange and black). Like most JELL-O recipes, this appetizer is easy and affordable to create. Per the note in the recipe, you can even turn your Cool Whip top into a ghost by adding miniature chocolate chips as eyeballs!
Tip: If you prefer other citrus flavors to orange, try changing it up in favor of a peach or apricot JELL-O. As long as they present the same color for the theme, you can choose whichever flavor best satisfies your taste buds.
Though seemingly complicated at first glance, this next recipe is totally simple and definitely satisfying. Try these Easy Halloween Truffles for your spooky celebration – your guests will thank you! This recipe also features two different results that add variety to your appetizer spread. These mouth-watering coconut and white chocolate truffles add unique flavors to your mix of terrifying treats. If you haven’t yet guessed what the truffles resemble, take a closer look. The orange colored coconut flaked truffles mirror pumpkins in the patch, while adding a face to the all white truffles reveals their true ghostly forms.
Tip: Place your green candy of choice on top of the pumpkin shapes to make it look like the pumpkins’ leaves.
#5 – Eyeball Cupcakes
Finally, let’s be honest. Every Halloween bash needs cupcakes. However, you cannot make just any old cupcake! Naturally, these cupcakes need eyeballs on them. You’ll have a monster mash making these cute, but spooky designs. We promise, they taste much better than they sound. Choose your cupcake mix of your choice and follow its baking instructions. This will cause the total baking time listed in the recipe to vary, so consider it irrelevant just this once. What truly matters is following the directions for decorating these anatomically awesome cupcakes.
Tip: Feel free to use a variety of colors when choosing candy for the eyeball ring and center. Peach rings add a nice, fruity compliment to the chocolate cake.
