30 Scarily Perfect Recipes to Serve at Your Halloween Party
Who's ready for Halloween, the most bewitching, devilish day of the year? No party is complete without easy Halloween recipes that satisfy both your sweet and dark sides. If you're throwing a bash for all your ghoulish family members and friends, then these bite-sized appetizers, desserts, and beverages are sure to hit the spot.
Thematic desserts such as the halloween brownies, seen here and our "I Scream" graveyard pie are sweet treats that princesses, firefighters, and ghosts are sure to adore. Make use of any leftover Halloween candy in our tasty blondies, which are topped with hard-shelled chocolate candies.
Planning an adults-only bash? The creepy cocktail recipes here are sure to taunt guests until they reach the very last drop. One of our favorite Halloween cocktail recipes features black vodka, blood-like Maraschino cherry liqueur, and stuffed "eyeball" olives—that's enough to send shivers up any spine. But if you're inviting little ones along, you'll be pleased to know that there are also recipes for the little goblins in your life—our pumpkin pie milkshake can be served either virgin or with a boozy twist for grown-up ghosts.
A fun element to add to your beverage service is dry ice, which will keep liquids bone-chillingly cold, and adds a spooky, smoky effect. It's completely safe to let it float about—just make sure guests do not touch it with bare hands as it can burn skin.
When setting up Halloween décor for the party, create a spooky spread of bowls of candy, trays of tartlets, and more. Light a match on flickering candles, hang make-shift cobwebs, lay out black and orange linens, and arrange books of spells and potions to help your guests get in the supernatural spirit. Party-goers will revel in these twisted, tasty Halloween recipes.
