Halloween Party Menus Perfect for All Kinds of Spooky, Delicious Gatherings
Halloween is about so much more than just sweet treats. Whether you're hosting the entire block for a ghastly fun party or simply having a few souls over for a smaller fête before heading out, food is at the heart of Halloween fun. Each of these Halloween menus will allow you to send your guests into the night feeling ready to scoop up as much candy as they possibly can; they may come back for more. Get in the party spirit by decking the halls with spooky touches and turning your front porch and backyard into a haunted play land. Before you start cooking, be sure to create some Halloween décor pieces that will make any tablescape spookily special.
Little ones can't run on candy power alone; a good Halloween dinner will provide fuel for the evening's revelry. But cooking a meal can be near impossible when someone needs to fix Batman's utility belt and the fairy can't find her magic wand. The trick: Prepare as much of the dinner as possible ahead of time, and then rewarm and serve it quickly before heading out. We're sharing menus full of dishes that can be made in bulk in advance, and they're full of staples that kids will love—chicken, salsa, corn tortillas, mild Monterey Jack—foods that appeal even when there's trick-or-treating to be done.
If you're hosting guests throughout the night, a table of sweets is a must—you can create a sinfully sweet spread of Halloween-themed cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and more treats to keep little ones happy all night. Any Halloween party gets better for adults when there's a handcrafted cocktail in their hands; while you can make them by the tray, you can also serve up a big-batch beverage for all to enjoy, like our twisted take on fruit punch. Round out your offerings with finger foods (literally!) that all can nosh on through the night.
