If you’re putting together a Halloween party (or any sort of fall fete) and need a pile of EASY party food ideas, this is your post!
Most of these were made by my kids (so EASY). I did include basic instructions for most of them, but almost all of them don’t even need those.
And they’re all so festive and fun and fall-ish!
Jackolantern veggie tray
To make this fall veggie platter- position your dip ‘eyes,’ cucumber ‘smile,’ bell pepper ‘nose’ and cucumber stem and then fill in the rest with carrot matchsticks.
Spider ritz cracker sandwiches
To make these ‘spiders’- spread a thick layer of peanut butter on a ritz cracker and position eight half pretzel sticks as ‘legs.’ Then add another cracker on top and position candy eyeballs on the front of your ‘spider.’
To make apple teeth- Cut an apple into eight to ten apple slices. Spread peanut butter on one side of two apple slices. Position a row of marshmallows in the peanut butter of one apple slice and add another apple slice on top of the ‘teeth.’
Pumpkin Munch/Scarecrow Crunch (full recipe/instructions here)
Halloween treat grazing platter
To assemble this fall treat platter- Stack a dessert plate and a platter. Fill the dessert plate with one type of Halloween treat. Then gather a pile of various Halloween and fall themed treats and arrange in wedges extending from/around the dessert plate.
To make- Buy (or make) white meringues and press candy eyeballs into them.
Treats with candy eyeballs
To make- Add candy eyeballs to any treat!
Treats with pumpkin pom pom toppers
To make- Make a pile of pom poms (you can just make orange ones if you’re going for a more traditional pumpkin). Poke a small skewer into the base of the pompom and hot glue a stem and leaves to the top.
Pumpkin patch pudding shots
To make- layer chocolate pudding, crushed oreos (or chocolate cookies) and a pumpkin shaped candy corn into shot glasses.
