Halloween Party Snacks:
The spooky season is upon us! Every great Halloween party has themed foods and snacks. But sometimes, doing all that work just for some spooky snacks seems like a hassle! We’ve put together a list of some simple, fun, and delicious snacks for your Halloween party.
First up are these super simple spider crackers!
- 1 box of snack crackers
- Creamy peanut butter
- Small pretzel sticks
- Mini chocolate chips
- Cut 4 pretzel sticks in half. Then spread peanut butter onto a cracker. Place the four halves into the peanut butter so they stick out like spider legs.
- Place another cracker on top, and give it two dollops of icing for eyes. Then place a mini chocolate chip on the top of each eye.
Next are these spicy, spooky, mummy jalapeno poppers. They’ll be a hit
- Ten jalapeño peppers, sliced in half lengthwise and pith/ seeds removed. Leave the stem if you can on some or all of the halves.
- Eight ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- Eight ounces jack cheese, shredded
- One scallion (green onion), finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Candy eyeballs
- Preheat oven 400° F. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, jack cheese, scallion and salt until well blended.
- Roll out the crescent rolls and separate into 4 rectangles (not triangles) with a perforation in the middle of each. Press your fingers into the perforations to seal them. Using a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 long pieces lengthwise.
- Fill each jalepeño half with the cheese mixture. Wrap each jalapeño half with the dough, leaving a space for the eyes. Use two pieces of dough if necessary. Brush with egg mixture and place on baking sheet.
- Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press the eyes into the cheese where the opening is. Serve immediately.
For a sweeter treat, we’ve got white chocolate strawberry ghosts!
- 1 bag of white chocolate chips
- 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
- Whole strawberries
- Lay down a sheet of parchment paper for your strawberries to rest on.
- Melt the white chocolate and the milk chocolate separately using either a microwave or your stove.
- Wash and dry the strawberries and dip them in the white chocolate. Make sure to drag them a little on the parchment paper before you set them down. This will give them a nice little tail.
- Once the white chocolate has dried. Put the melted milk chocolate into a piping bag, or a ziplock bag with a small corner cut off. Pipe two eyes and mouth onto each strawberry ghost.
- Let them dry and serve for dessert!
