Host an Epic Halloween party with These Recipes & Party Tips
First and foremost, a party is just not a party without the right food. Your Halloween party food really needs to set the mood. You can’t just put out some chips and dip and call it good. If you really want to throw the epic Halloween party of the year, you need the right recipes to do it. Here are some of my favorite Halloween party food recipes:
Mummy Pizza - Pizza is always a good party food. Mummy pizza? Now that’s a Halloween party food. (party tip: use the Handi-Foil Cookie Sheets for baking these. They can get messy and you want to be enjoying the party, not scraping the cheese off of pans.)
Dark Chocolate Halloween Cookies - Regardless of what the food type is, we are a big believer that your Halloween party recipes need to set a dark mood fitting for Halloween. Don’t you think? These Dark Chocolate Halloween cookies are perfectly fitting for a spooky party night. (party tip: use the Handi-Foil Cookie Sheets for baking these as well. I’m a big supporter of not doing dishes after throwing a party.)
Boogeyman Brew - This creepy drink will be a hit with all of your party-goers. (party tip: Grab some see-through plastic disposable cups. See-through is necessary for the creep factor, but depending on how many party goers you have, you will likely run out of your regular glasses so a big pack of disposable party cups is the way to go)
Haunted Graveyard Rice Krispies Treats - Is it really a Halloween party if you don’t have headstone shaped treats? These Haunted Graveyard Rice Krispie Treats are a great alternative to cookies but don’t take as much time and prep work as other deserts, which is my favorite part. (party tip: use the Handi-Foil Square Cake Pan w/lids when you make these. It’s easy to clean up and the lids are great for keeping your treats fresh until it’s time to enjoy.)
More Party TipsHonestly, we could go on and on and share countless other awesome and spooky Halloween recipes, but then you would be cooking for days and we don’t want that! So, let’s move on and talk about more party tips that can help in your quest to host an epic Halloween party.
Don’t stress the menuLike we were saying, don’t spend so much time cooking and prepping food that you are too worn out to enjoy the party. Stick to just a couple of awesome recipes and call it good.
DecorateTo host a truly epic Halloween party, you have to decorate for it. You can choose a specific theme, or you can just decorate in all things Halloween. This doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive though. The dollar store has an amazing amount of Halloween decorations, as will any party store.
Keep the Clean Up to a Minimum with the Right ToolsNotice that we recommended using handi-foil bakeware with the recipes that we suggested? That’s because cleaning up after an epic party is less than epic. It is not fun at all. Plus, the knowledge that you have a big mess to clean up can put a serious damper on your fun. Instead, prepare to keep the clean up to a minimum with the right tools.
Handi-foil products to save yourself from scrubbing cookware after your Halloween party food prep.
Keep wastebaskets for trash and recycling on hand in every room so people can toss their stuff in as they go.
Use disposable tablecloths to cover any and all tables that will be holding food or drinks. Any spills can simply be tossed out with the tablecloth.
Disposable silverware can help you avoid scrubbing forks and spoons all night.
