Halloween is an excellent time for getting together with your friends and family. And whether you plan a big party or a small gathering, you’ll need snacks and food to serve. But you also want food that fits with the Halloween theme. Serve up these delicious Halloween recipes to spruce up your party.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Don’t let all those seeds from the pumpkins you carved go to waste. Save the seeds and roast them for a yummy snack. For every one and a half cups of seeds, toss with two teaspoons of melted butter and a pinch of salt. Then, preheat your oven to 300℉, and roast the seeds for 45 minutes. Let them roast until they are golden brown, and stir them occasionally.
Apple Teeth Treats
Core and cut into wedges four of your favorite type of apple. Then, rub the cut parts of the apple with a little lemon juice to keep them from browning. Of course, if you leave the skin on the outside of the apple, it’ll be more colorful and look more like mouths when you arrange them. Finally, arrange two wedges to look like a mouth and poke five or six slivered almonds into the edges to look like teeth.
Witches’ Hats Cookies
Grab a pack of fudge stripe or crisp mint cookies and a bag of chocolate kisses. You’ll also need gold or yellow decorating gel. Then, turn the cookies to the chocolate side and place a chocolate kiss in the center. You can use a little dab of honey to get the kisses to stick. Use the decorating gel to draw a hat band and buckle on the hat, and you’re done.
Ghosts and Bones
These fluffy treats will melt in their mouths. First, preheat your oven to 225℉. Whisk two egg whites with two drops of lemon juice. As you are whisking, add seven tablespoons of white sugar, about one tablespoon at a time. Then once the whites have become thick and can hold their shape, transfer the meringue to a piping bag. You can use it to create bone or ghost shapes, then bake them for about an hour. After that, turn the heat off and leave in the oven for another hour until the treats are cool and firm. Finally, melt some chocolate and use a toothpick to dot the eyes on your yummy ghosts.
