Halloween Finger Foods

I love Halloween. I love decorating for it, partying on the day in a costume, and making fun and scary finger foods for all my guests to enjoy. Especially my little grandkiddos. 

Cute table decor can be as simple as a jar of candy corn. Isn't this so cute? My daughter put a jar inside the jar and just has the in between area filled with candy corn! Genius! 

Or decorate your chairs with simple pumpkin chairbacks made from orange felt. 

Everybody loves scarecrow cupcakes. This would be a great finger food for any fall party. 

Or individual pecan pies made in cupcake tins. Super easy and yummy. A good recipe for these is at All Recipes.com.

Add a little pizzaz to your chips and salsa by getting these orange and black tortilla chips that are in the stores now. But hurry because they go fast! 

I went a little crazy on the Halloween cupcakes a few years ago. Check out the blog for tutorials on all of them. The tutorial and more pictures are HERE.

Some of the spiderweb ones we later added spider rings we got from Walmart. 

My very favorite party finger food is potato skins. They are always a hit. 

These brownies I decorated with yogurt covered pretzels, white chocolate disks for heads and then used white icing in a small round tip for the rest. They were fun. 

Pigs in a blanket are always a hit. Find some hot dogs you like and cut them into thirds. Then wrap them with Crescent roll dough and bake. Mustard and catsup bowls for dipping the pigs. 

Pumpkin breads cut up into half slices are always easy as well as cream cheese ham and onion roll ups. Recipe I use is from Lee Drummond HERE  only I add pieces of ham or bits of bacon to mine. 

Buy some store bought pies with the whip cream or meringue on top and just draw black spiderweb over it. Add a plastic spider. 

Veggies and dip are always popular as are fresh salads. You can always do a salad bar and ask a few friends to bring one too. Then make homemade rolls and fresh butter. That's a fun party. 

Muffins of all kinds are great party foods. Add your favorite soups. Or better yet buy some bread bowls from your local market and ask them to make them half size. That also makes fun party foods. 

Everybody likes apple wedges and caramel dipping sauce. This on was really rich and caramelly. Here is a recipe for the one I use HERE.

Candy bars for take home fun are great for kids and adults alike. 

And you can't beat a pretty yummy sugar cookie any time. 

These glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme. Just add the vampire plastic teeth and 2 chocolate chips to each one for a cute vampire donut. Kids loved these at my classroom Halloween Party. But they loved the sugar cookies even better. And they were probably cheaper.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN all you ghouls and goblins!
