Liven up Your Halloween Extravaganza with These Spooky Party Snacks10.12.18
The spookiest day of the year is rapidly approaching, and that means it’s time to prep for your upcoming Halloween party. Already stocked up on scary décor and refreshing drinks? Start thinking about spooky snacks that will keep guests coming back for more. We’ve collected a few of our favorite sinister snacks that deserve a place on your party table
Brie is a cheese that’s beloved for its luxuriously soft texture and accessible flavor. This makes it an excellent choice for any holiday celebration – Halloween included. For a simple way to put a spooky spin on this time-tested favorite, create Mummy Brie by wrapping strips of puff pastry around one round of brie. Brush the pastry with a blend of egg and milk, and then stick your creation in the oven. Once it’s baked, add two slices of olives for eyes, and place a mini pepperoni inside each to create red, devilish pupils. Don’t forget to add a selection of fine cheeses and a charcuterie board to round out your Halloween spread.
Jack-O-Lantern Halloween Stuffed Peppers
This terrifying treat fuses the quirky appeal of the jack-o-lantern with the mouthwatering flavors of stuffed peppers, which are yet another holiday favorite. Prepare Jack-O-Lantern Halloween Stuffed Peppers with any stuffed peppers recipe, except opt for orange bell peppers for a more Halloween-friendly look. Plus, before stuffing the peppers, use a sharp paring knife to carve a jack-o-lantern face (or another spooky design) into the pepper just as you would with a pumpkin.
Veggies and dip are a great way to offer a more health-conscious treat at your Halloween party, and they’re always popular with guests. That doesn’t mean they have to be boring – why not inject your favorite produce with a healthy dose of spooky spirit? Create your Veggie Skeleton with a row of sliced cukes for the spine, and then build a ribcage out of sliced bell peppers. Limbs are easy to craft with celery and carrot sticks, while cauliflower and broccoli are perfect for hands, feet and kneecaps. Use a dish of ranch for the head to keep savory dip close at hand. Plus, lend this dish a soul-penetrating stare by topping the dressing with two sliced black olives.
