11 spooky eats and haunted treats for Halloween

With the arrival of October, we have officially kicked off the holiday season! The next few months will be full of pumpkins, trick-or-treating, turkey and stuffing and presents! I love the holiday season and all of the fun that comes along with it.

My family really loves Halloween, and we have a fun Halloween activity planned every weekend in October. One of my favorite things we do is our annual pumpkin carving and Halloween food party.

There are so many cool ideas involving Halloween food and our ideas have really evolved over the past few years. Our recipes range from healthy to cool looking to just plain gross. But all our Halloween foods are delicious and fit the Halloween theme perfectly!

These are some of my favorite Halloween dishes that my family has made over the years.

Frankenstein Pudding Cups

These are super easy to make – just add green food coloring to some vanilla pudding and put it in a clear cup. Add crushed Oreos to the top and draw on a Frankenstein face. This is a great Halloween treat that kids can help make.

Eyeball Cookies

This is another easy recipe for kids to help with. All you have to do is make sugar cookies and decorate them to look like eyeballs!

Meathead Lunchmeat

This idea is a little bit creepier but still fairly easy to do. For this Halloween dish, a skull was purchased and covered with ham from the deli counter. Place it in the middle of a platter with lunch meat and a few severed fingers and you have all the fixings for Halloween sandwiches!

Colorful Halloween Cake

This purple, orange and black cake had a fun surprise – it was colored on the inside too!

Pumpkin Puke

Although it looks disgusting, this guacamole dip was delicious and everyone got a kick out of it!

Earwax Q-Tips

This is another Halloween food that looks gross but tastes great and is super easy to make. Use mini marshmallows on the end of a toothpick and dip into melted caramel. This is also a food idea that would be great for kids to help make.

Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins

Who doesn’t love rice krispie treats?! These were easy to make by adding orange dye to the rice krispie treat mixture and forming into pumpkin shapes. Add a tootsie roll at the top for a stem.

Meatloaf Feet

If you really want to scare your guests, serve meatloaf feet! It’s just meatloaf shaped into feet with a little bit of ketchup on top for that freshly severed look.

Mummy Pizzas

Pizza is the hit of any party but be sure to give yours a little Halloween flair by using cheese and olives on English muffins to look like little mummies!

Snake Cake

A party always needs cake! This snake cake is a little harder to make than the other dishes but it’s worth it in the end. It’s such an awesome looking cake!

Broken Glass Cupcakes

There aren’t even words to describe how fantastic these cupcakes are! The best part is that the glass is totally edible!

Over the years, my family has come up with some really awesome Halloween food ideas. We look forward to getting together every year to see what new and exciting Halloween food ideas we can come up with. Making great Halloween food is fun but the best part is getting to eat them all!
