When autumn arrives, it’s time to start planning Halloween parties. You can make a deliciously spooky spread with these themed Halloween treats. They are appropriate for all ages, though some of them have a creepy twist. Kids and adults alike will enjoy them and ask for more.

1. Witch Finger Cookies

These spooky delights will definitely get your guests’ attention. With almond “fingernails” and jelly “blood,” these cookies are just gruesome enough to be fun. They are based on a traditional shortbread dough, making them a tasty addition to your Halloween party.

2. Halloween Spiders

These chocolate, no-bake treats can be on the table in no time. Simply combine dry chow mein noodles and peanuts with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Make them into a small pile resembling a spider or a haystack. Scoop the mixture onto a wax-lined pan and let them chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

3 Jack O’Lantern Watermelon

This is a quick and easy fruit salad that anyone can make. Simply cut into a watermelon as you would a pumpkin and scoop out the melon inside. Carve your pumpkin with a toothy grin. Chop the watermelon and combine it with honeydew melon, grapes, and strawberries. Serve the salad as if it is pouring out of the jack o’lantern’s mouth. This will make the kids laugh while helping them balance their treat consumption with something healthy.

4. Rice Krispie Treat Mummies

This recipe takes one of the most popular sweet treats and dresses it up for Halloween. Simply make Rice Krispie treats and cut them into rectangles. Dip the rectangles in melted white chocolate. Drizzle more white chocolate over the top for “wrappings.” Add eyes with food coloring for a cute but creepy touch.

5. Strawberry Ghosts

This is a variation on traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries. Dip a whole strawberry in white chocolate, leaving the top exposed. After the berries are dipped, add eyes and a mouth with mini chocolate chips. This is another way to trick the kids into eating some fruit on Halloween.

6. Spider Oreo Pops

Put an Oreo on a stick and dip it in chocolate. Add legs made from black licorice and candy eyes. This will give your spiders a cute and quirky look.

All of these treats are simple to make and will have your party guests coming back for more. When you need to have a party catered, call us at Foodini’s. You’ll be sure that you are getting the best possible food and service for the price.
