Halloween is a fun and spooky holiday, perfect for holding parties with family and friends. Apart from costumes which are a key part of the holiday, Halloween recipes and sweet treats are another essential part of any Halloween get-together. Whether you’re catering for a gaggle of excited children, or just adults who are young-at-heart, then there are plenty of brilliant Halloween recipes that will set up the perfect mood for your party!
It goes without mentioning that candy apples are essential at this time of year. Why not mix things up by trying caramel and chocolate-dipped apples as alternatives? Particularly if you’re short of time, dipping apples in melted chocolate is much less time-consuming and less difficult than toffee-coated alternatives. Decorating with sprinkles or smaller candy pieces makes these a feast for the eyes as well as for the taste!
Aside from the classics, don’t forget to add a spooky element to your food.
Pizza is a staple of party food, and unbelievably easy to customise. Simply buy shop-bought pizza, or make your own and use the toppings to create different images. Try triangles of pepper to make a pumpkin’s face, ghost-shaped mozzarella pieces to haunt the tomato sauce or half-meatballs with anchovies to create gruesome eyeballs!
It could not be simpler to turn your Halloween recipes into a fun activity for younger guests. Decorating plain, iced cupcakes with the scariest possible decoration is a perfect pass-time. Simply provide an array of sweets, cupcakes toppers and coloured icing and watch their imagination take over… They’ll love showing off their designs before enjoying this tasty treat!
If you’re looking for a healthier option, try arranging a plate with dips such a guacamole with some scary vegetable fingers sticking out of it. It’s delicious, nutritious and perfect for Halloween! Use cream cheese to create fingernails on the vegetable sticks for an even more effective look.
With these Halloween recipes, young and old guests alike are sure to have a fantastic time and enjoy an array of classic and creepy foods!
