SPOOKY WITCH CUPCAKES

If you’re looking for the perfect Halloween dessert idea for a party, look no further than making witch cupcakes.

You can make the cupcakes in whatever flavor you want them to be – red velvet, chocolate, or vanilla – and then top them with spooky witch colors like green, orange, and black.

Once you have that all done, you can add a cupcake liner to the top in the shape of a witch hat. Just use a frosting tip to shape the tip of the hat, and then lay it right on top!

This will be a hit at all of the Halloween parties you have! If you’re not in the mood for witch cupcakes, try witch hat s’mores!

HALLOWEEN SNACK MIX: AN EASY HALLOWEEN PARTY SNACK

If you want a somewhat healthy snack for Halloween, making a snack mix is a great idea. You can do this in a variety of ways. It can be made with powdered sugar and candy eyeballs and candy corn.

It can also be made with healthier options like Chex mix, pretzels, and chocolate chips for the Halloween colors.

SCARY MONSTER WRAPS

Another appetizer you could use for your Halloween party, or bring to a party you are going to, is a monster wrap.

Grab some spinach tortillas (to get the green effect). Then use cheddar cheese or blue tortilla chips to make the scary hat on top. You can use olives as eyes to produce the red pupil effect.

To make it even scarier, add sweet or dill pickles as the eyebrows angling down in the middle to create an angry effect. 

SPIDERWEB NACHO SPREAD 

If you aren’t drooling yet, you’re about to be. Creating a spiderweb nacho spread is the perfect dish for a Halloween party.

Add tomatoes around the edges and guac on top. To create the actual spider web, use sour cream to drizzle in the shape of a spider web.

This nacho spread is also perfect for Halloween dinner with family or friends!

DEVILED EGGS – HALLOWEEN STYLE

You may not think about deviled eggs as something to make for Halloween. However, making them to be eyeballs can be quite creepy.

First, make some hardboiled eggs and fill them with guac. On top, add an olive to create the evil eye effect. You can create a sour cream mixture to create eyeball-like detailing that will make it extra spooky and weird to look at!

CANDY CORN CUPCAKES

Much like the witch cupcakes, these are made pretty similarly. However, the recipe calls for splitting the batter to dye some yellow and some orange.
