Don’t you just love Halloween? The costumes, the scary movies, and the hauntingly chilly air that follows you around? For me, it’s really the fact that I get to host my annual party, where we have spooky, Halloween treats and play creepy games (such as mafia, but with werewolves or vampires). I try to vary it up every time with something new and exciting, but I always maintain the scariness. Nope, there’s no cutesy Halloween at our place.
Here are some truly creepy appetizers, entrees, and desserts to flow with the theme at your next party.
Evil Pumpkin’s Revenge Dip
This puking pumpkin doesn’t look sick, he looks downright scary! This is probably just part of his plot to come after you.
Vegan Deviled Purple Potatoes
Need I say more? These “deviled eggs” are so delish, and they’re the perfect finger-food.
Black Bean Spiderweb of Lies Dip
Packed with protein and sure to be a hit, this dip barely lasted through 30 minutes of my party in the previous years. It’ll be gone before you know it, so plan to make a good amount!
Skull Pot Pie
This savory pie will catch your guests by surprise.
Jack-o-Lanterns Stuffed with Evil
These peppers are super versatile, since they can be stuffed with a thick 3-bean chili, noodles, quinoa, rice, you name it!
These burger buns are made with activated charcoal for their black color. Get the recipe here.
Bloody Witch Finger Cookies
These cookies aren’t for the faint of heart, but they are delicious!
Poison Toffee Apples
How do you like them deadly apples?
Bloody Chocolate Cups
These are basically like Reese’s, except stuffed with blood-red raspberry jam.
Keep it Green this Halloween
Remember, a party isn’t an excuse to throw a bunch of plastic in the trash. Let’s do our part to keep it green and use reusable plates, cups, bowls, and cutlery for our guests. Most hard plastic can be rinsed off and used again without any issue. Ideally, you should keep a great set of versatile dinnerware so that you don’t have to rely on any plastic to enjoy your Halloween treats.
That said, here’s to a fun, eco-friendly Halloween in 2017!
