Superhero Party Food With the WOW Factor!
Parties are always a licence to eat sweets and treats, but offering some appetising looking healthy snacks is always a great idea.
We love this idea from Simply Sarah Style for superhero-themed fruit skewers. Just pick your favourite character, and then use their signature colours as inspiration.
Make the most of the rainbow fruit colours to find the best-suited colours for your favourite superhero – blue and red for Superman or Spiderman; black and yellow for Batman; green and black for the Incredible Hulk; red and yellow for Iron Man; and so on.
Alternatively, you could try dishing up a superhero salad bar like this one from Sweeten Your Day Events. We love the idea of picking your own super power – those shape-shifting grapes look yum! You could also try ‘laser vision’ carrots, ‘super strength’ broccoli florets, ‘super speed’ celery sticks or ‘force field’ melon wedges.
These Thor hammers from Masshole Mommy not only look the part, but they are quick to assemble and tasty to eat!
All you need to do is cut some cheese into cubes, insert the pretzel stick handles, and you’re done! Thor would be proud.
If you have enough healthy options already, these Thor hammers could also be made with a marshmallow instead of cheese – the end result is just as quick, easy and impressive.

These is something so deliciously more-ish about bite-size party food! This is definitely my guilty pleasure – but they’re so tiny they don’t count, right?
Sometimes all it takes is the right packaging. Parcel up some crisps, popcorn or sweets in little homemade cones – they look fantastic and take minimal effort!
For added style, why not try comic book printed paper or pages?
If you need a holder for the cones, try using an upturned shoe box or cereal box. Cover it with paper (even wrapping paper would work well), then pierce a pattern of holes approximately 1-2 inches in diameter in the cardboard to hold the cones.

Party guests of all ages will appreciate this superhero platter. Designed by Cheryl Cavanaugh to look like Captain America’s shield, it is the perfect mix of naughty and nice. This combo of bite-sized bits is really effective, but this could also be recreated for other superheroes – for example, a bat-shape made of blackberries in the centre of a melon or pineapple chunk oval platter.
This idea for Poison Ivy seeds could not be any easier! Varying shades of green – Skittles, M&Ms, Smarties – do all the work for you.
