Halloween Recipes

This round-up of snacks, drinks, and treats is a super fun way to get your little ghosts and goblins excited for Halloween. All of these recipes are easy, fun to make, and are sure to be a hit for class parties, Halloween-themed play dates or parties, Family Movie Night, etc.!

1. Spooky Spider Parfaits

I served these delicious parfaits for dessert at my spooky-themed Supper Club a few years ago. They were a huge hit and everyone loved them. In stemless wine glasses, I layered chocolate pudding, whipped cream (with crushed Oreos mixed in), and a thick layer of crushed Oreos…then finished it off with a spider!

And in this version, I used a cookies & cream pudding mix as the layer between crushed Oreos for Family Movie Night.

2. Skeleton Snack Board

On a large board or tray, place a skeleton in the middle and add in meats, cheeses, fruits, crackers, candy, chips, etc.! It’s that easy and yet it’s always such a fun surprise for guests when they go to grab a cracker. All of my charcuterie board items are from Trader Joe’s. Get whatever meats, cheeses, and treats you like! I’ve got salami, prosciutto, berries, ghost chips, caramel-covered popcorn, goat cheese, rosemary crips, and more!

You can also make this as just a dessert board and add in lots of Halloween candy. I would also recommend a little bowl of pumpkin dip and spooky snack mix!

3. Spooky Halloween Snack Mix

This is the perfect treat for Halloween gatherings, family movie nights, fall class parties, or “booing” your neighbors with! It’s super easy to whip up, has only 5 ingredients, and is sure to be a hit.

4. 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Dip

Another perfect Halloween treats for teachers, bus drivers, neighbors, co-workers, etc. This recipe is SO easy to spookify for Halloween parties.

5. Candy Corn Jello Cups

These are SO easy to make. I started with a layer of pineapple jello and set it in the fridge overnight. The next day I poured a layer of orange jello on top and let it set in the fridge for a few hours. Then just before serving, I added whipped cream and a few candy corn. Ta-Da!

6. Mummy Hot Dogs

I surprised the kids last year with these mummy hot dogs for dinner before trick-or-treating. They thought it was the coolest dinner ever. All I did was wrap thin strips of crescent roll dough around hot dogs, baked them for a few minutes, then added some candy eyeballs.

7. Spooky Apple Slices Snack Cups

We made these for a festive post-soccer game snack and they were a HUGE hit!

  • The bottom of the cups are filled with almond butter (no allergies on our team). You could also use caramel or Nutella.
  • We soaked the apple slices in water with a splash of lemon juice for a few minutes so they wouldn’t turn brown.
  • Sprinkled in are a few candy corn and a spider for extra fun. FYI — the candy corn will get melty if they sit too long so add just before serving. We made our snack just before the game and they were perfect, but when I unloaded the leftover ones from the cooler later that night, they were gross. So definitely do not prep these until you’re going to serve them. You can also add spooky sprinkles if you wanted instead!
  • I purchased the disposable cups with lids from Walmart and the mini spiders from Amazon.
