EASY HALLOWEEN PARTY IDEAS

 For Halloween-themed birthday parties Sara from Our Easy Bites has made a fabulous collection of easy kid-friendly party food.  Clever Sara has turned average food into a Halloween food with the addition of a) eyes or b) plastic spiders.  The great thing is that a lot of them are healthy (or semi-healthy) options, (just don’t tell the kids!) which is a nice thing compared to the loads of candy you usually see.

Mummy Dogs

 

Look at these darling little Mummy dogs.  They are so easy to make. Cut crescent roll dough into thin strips and wrap around hot dogs. Bake according to crescent package directions and use ketchup or mustard for eyes. Cut hot dogs in half to make them bite-sized.

Monster Jaws

 

Quarter apples and take a wedge out of the center of each quarter. Dunk them in water with a little lemon juice to prevent browning. Use slivered almonds for teeth (I toasted mine for color and taste!) Eyes are optional. I stuck pretzel rods in and attached candy eyes with peanut butter.

Bones n’ Blood

 

Use breadstick dough (store bought or homemade) and cut into strips. Use scissors to snip the ends into 2 pieces and roll them down to make the bone shape. Dip in “bloody” marinara! For extra flavor sprinkle with garlic and Parmesan

Cheesy Fingers

 

Super kid friendly- who doesn’t love string cheese?? Again, I cut them in half to make them kid-sized. Use the flat side of a knife to make the knuckle marks and attach slivered almonds with a dab of cream cheese for the nails. I also used a knife to shave off just a bit of the cheese at an angle before attaching the almond.

Dirt n’ Worms

 

Use chocolate pudding for your mud and put some crushed oreos on top for dirt. Hide those gummy worms in there for eeek factor!

Spidey Cookies

Red hots and licorice turn oreos into creepy (but kinda cute) spiders. Shoestring licorice is hard to find these days, but Twizzlers makes “Pull-Apart” candy that works perfectly

 

Spider Web Dip

This trick works for pretty much any dip that you could pipe sour cream on top of! I always do a basic 7-Layer taco dip. Put some sour cream in a plastic baggie with the end snipped off and use it to draw a web pattern. Throw on a fake spider or two and your favorite party dip is instantly creepy!

 

Slimy Worms on a Bun

Just slice hotdogs and drop them into boiling water for just a minute or two and they’ll curl a bit. Dunk them in some bbq sauce and you have slimy worms :)


Caramel Toffee Dip

 

Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip1 8-oz. package cream cheese (you can use light cream cheese)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla (you can add more to taste)
Toffee bits (look by the chocolate chips and try and find the chocolate covered ones if you can! Your dip won’t be pretty, but it will sure taste good!)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. (about a pinch) nutmeg

Dippers
Cinnamon chips, cut out in spooky shapes
Hollowed-out pumpkin

You’ll also need:

Assorted fruit (I just buy a fruit tray at some place like Costco or Sam’s Club and a carton of strawberries if they’re on sale. This dip is the best, however, on tart Granny Smith apples).

Bamboo skewers (if you want to kebab your fruit)
