Are you hosting a Halloween party? The great thing about Halloween Party Food is that you can go as crazy as you want in the kitchen! From eyeball tacos to spider crackers, here are 15 Tempting Halloween Party Food Ideas for Little Monsters, ensuring you create a feast fit for a ghoul!
#1. Halloween Brambrack
No self respecting Halloween Party would be complete without a Barmbrack, with a ring hidden inside!
Most kids love eating these cakes and hoping they’re the lucky ones to find the ring inside their slice. Make this the centre piece of your Halloween party table.
#2. Spooky Eyed Buns
These creepy spooky eyed buns will make a great addition to any Halloween Party Table.
They are essentially rice crispie buns with some added spooky-eyed toppings, so they are easy to make. Perfect for letting the kids get creative in the kitchen!
#3. Spooky Punch
Being scary is thirsty work. Create a spooky punch to re-hydrate your little monsters.
An extra spooky gruesome touch can be added using spooky-shaped ice cube trays, or you could freeze a surgical glove that is filled with water, and pop into your punch bowl, like Loveitsomuch.com have done..
#4. Ghost Cookies
Sure to be a hit with party guests young and old, our Ghost cookie recipe is simple and quick. Once baked, let them cool and have fun decorating them together with the kids.
These would also be perfect as a party activity – let the kids decorate their own to take home and enjoy.
For more ghost-y fun, we also have a great Gluten Free Ghostly Bites recipe.
#5. Frightening Witches Fingers
Or for an alternative, we love this recipe for realistic frightening witch’s fingers cookies from Kraft. They look super-scary and can be ready in just 35 mins. They do contain nuts so be sure to check for allergies first.
Hand them out (excuse the pun!) to party guests and watch them run!
#6. Pumpkin Orange Cheesecake
Great for using up the flesh from your jack-o-lanterns, this tasty pumpkin and orange cheesecake can be made the night before, and would be the perfect addition to any Halloween party.
#7. Hot Dogs Mummies
These hot dog Mummies from Seakettle are easily made by wrapping hot dogs in strips of shop-bought dough.

#8. Monster’s Toes
We love these lime-flavoured Monster’s Toes from Kraft. They are so easy to create and are ready in just 30 minutes. Perfect for making with the kids.
You could make them slightly longer to create monsters fingers too!

#9. Pumpkin Cake
If you like carrot cake, then you will love this clever Halloween tray bake, by BBC goodfood, which uses grated pumpkin instead of carrot.
Butternut squash will also work well in this recipe if you are all out of pumpkin.

#10. Popcorn Cones
For things that go bump in the night, try out our recipe for Popcorn Cones. A great treat anytime of year but a winner at parties – these are bite sized eat-in-your-hand finger food with no plates to wash up!
Simple to prepare, these are best served on the day they are made, but you can eat them up to 3 days after popping the corn. We doubt they’ll last that long!
#11. Eyeball Tacos

#13. Halloween Pumpkin Cookies
How cute are these little pumpkin cookies?! This recipe for Halloween Pumpkin Cookies comes from preschools4all, and is perfect for baking with the kids.
Using pumpkin puree and some lovely warming spices(cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) gives a lovely seasonal taste to these cookies – children may not have tasted these spices before, but we are sure they will enjoy eating them as much at baking them.
