Proof that you can turn any food into something ghoulish and ghastly.
While the Halloween costumes and decorations are important, the food you serve at your Halloween party is what guests will remember for years to come. Instead of settling for your go-to appetizers — chips and dip, cheese and crackers, and so forth — lean into the holiday's creep factor with these seriously creative Halloween party snacks and food ideas. Why? Because October is truly the only time of year that you can serve up a platter of tongues, eyeballs, and intestines without weirding out your friends and family. Perfect for school parties or adult-only gatherings, these sweet, salty, and ultra-delicious snacks serve as a great warmup for Halloween's MVP: sugary-sweet cookies, cakes, cupcakes, candy, and other desserts. Some of these party-ready ideas are even small and kid-friendly enough to pass out to trick-or-treaters if you're looking for more unique options this year.
After you finalize your party menu, consisting of bones, worms, and brains (among other frighteningly good) treats, plan the best-ever Fright Night with these genius party ideas. Whatever you do, don't forget about the cocktails!
