Truly Spooky Vegan Halloween Treats: Savory & Sweet!

Truly Spooky Vegan Halloween Treats: Savory & Sweet!

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.

 

Appetizers

 

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!

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!
