Halloween isn’t just for the kids. Adult parties and costumes are just as fun as wandering the streets looking for candy handouts. For people who plan to throw a Halloween party, the food can add a fun touch to a great bash. These Halloween party foods add a gross, disturbing touch to a fun costume party or just a family get-together to celebrate the holiday.
Mummy Hotdogs Croissant Wraps
This Halloween party food is easy to make that even a new host or hostess can make them. Mummy hotdogs are the croissant bread wraps that surround the mini-hotdogs. You can buy the material in the freezer section of the grocery store. Break the center of the croissant to expose the center of the hot dogs. Use ketchup or mustard to create eyes for the mummy heads. This is a quick, easy and cheap finger food for a Halloween party.
Get Creative with Breadsticks
The breadstick dough you find in the breadstick section of the grocery store can be molded into different shapes. The Halloween hostess can even use cookie cutters to shape and cut the dough into fun Halloween bones, skeleton faces, fingers, and other fun shapes. Heat the breadsticks in the oven and add a little cheese for cheesy breadsticks. Place them on a dish with some sauce for a filling finger food at your Halloween party.
Cupcakes are found pre-made at your local baker. Purchase cupcakes with white frosting. The frosting is made to look like a ghostly top with the black cupcake batter that looks like soil. Use candy corn or other tiny, round candies as the eyes. This is a sweet treat that can be used as a finger food or a cheap Halloween food for dessert.
Microwave or fresh popcorn – either of these types of popcorn mixes can be used to create a cheap Halloween food for everyone to enjoy. Add flavors to the popcorn that also include coloring. For instance, cheesy orange flavoring can add a festive color to your popcorn mix. Other common flavoring includes butter, caramel or leave the flavoring off the popcorn for a low-calorie popcorn finger food for your Halloween party guests.
Cheese Ball Monsters
Cheese balls allow you to create fancy monsters using accessory foods such as crackers, candy, pretzels and other food that creates eyes, nose, hands, arms, legs and feet. Again, these foods are found in the freezer and snack section at your local grocery store. Cheese balls can be shaped and molded into creative monsters for your Halloween party guests.
