Eat: Roundup of Halloweeny Snacks
Last weekend we went to our first Halloween Party of the season (which was very delightful), and it very much got me in the mood for goulish treats and creepy snack items. I went on a pinning rampage and just HAVE to share with you all the fun things I found. I’m excited to make some of these for the kiddos!
1. Mummy Pops
We ate these at the party, and they were a hit- not only were they a treat for the eye, but delicious too!
2. Witches Hats
Chocolate creme in chocolate covered ice cream cones? I want to make these right now! The hardest part about this recipe is the waiting involved… 🙂
3. Spider Web Nacho Dip
Our family loves seven-layer dip to an embarrassing degree….but ya’ll, it is just SO GOOD! It has all the basic food groups…protein (beans?), vegetables (salsa? avocado), dairy (cheese? sour cream?)…could there be a more perfect combination of tastes? For this spider web dip, you could use whatever nacho dip recipe your family likes best, because it’s all about the sour cream and plastic spider placement on top :).
4. Veggie Witch Dip
This is what we brought to the party, and my kids LOVED it! Aly and Asante thought it was HILARIOUS, and it made them want to eat a lot of carrots. My only tip is to make sure you make (or buy) a thick dip in order for the carrots to stay standing up inside the dip. I also made a ton of carrot fingers for people to dip. And I colored the dip green (so it looked like the witch had melted into the bowl and all that was left of her were her fingers. whahaha).
5. Halloween Pizzas
You could go individualized (think lunch) or a family-size (perfect for dinner). Or both! I like this idea because it’s one that kids both young and old can enjoy. Perhaps invite another family over and see who can make the funniest/scariest pizza!
6. Jack-o-Lantern Burgers
This is a good one if you don’t have a whole lot of time to dedicate to this Halloween-eats business, but you want to do a little something to surprise your family at dinner.
7. Pretzel Fingers
These are incredible! They look just like fingers. I always love the chocolate covered pretzel rods at Christmas, so why not start in on them a couple months early?
8. Ghosts in the Graveyard
I remember making this back in high school, and it is so much fun to decorate! And eat…basically it’s dirt cake under that graveyard. Yuuuuuuuuuuum.
9. Orange Pumpkins
So. Easy. But cute! And full of nutrients. Why didn’t I think of this?!
10. Monster Mouths
These are so good, but take a bit of time to make. Instead of using marshmallows for teeth, I would suggest yogurt covered raisins…a bit tastier, a bit healthier, and it includes a little iron!
