If you’re throwing a big Halloween bash for your kids, you’re going to need some spooky snacks that are easy to eat and easy to make. Here are some delightfully creepy party snacks for your next big BOO bash.
Hot Dog Mummies
Every little trick-or-treater loves hot dogs, and what better way to serve them than wrapped up in breadstick dough with a dip of mustard? All you have to do is wrap each hot dog with store-bought raw breadstick dough. The messier you wrap it, the more it will look like a mummy. Leave a strip at the top (about where you would expect mummy eyes to be) for the mummy’s face. Bake your hot dogs on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. You can serve them with a side of mustard, and don’t forget to add two mustard eyes in the open space. Remember to let them cool before you serve them at your spook-tacular party.
These are ridiculously easy to make and eat! You only need two ingredients: pretzel sticks and individually wrapped miniature peanut butter cups. Unwrap your peanut butter cups and insert a pretzel stick into the bottom of each one to make miniature witch's brooms. These are very cute served upon a big platter, and they’re easy to eat because they come with their own built-in handle.
Worms And Dirt
For a tasty but icky-looking dessert, go for worms and dirt. For this recipe, you’ll need chocolate pudding, chocolate sandwich cookies, and gummy worms. Start by crushing the chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, just put your cookies in a freezer bag and use a rolling pin or large soup can to crush them into crumbs. Using individual clear party cups, layer in chocolate pudding for dirt, chocolate cookie crumbs as soil, and gummy worms on top. For extra yuck factor, you can get creative with the worms and have them wriggling throughout the entire cup.
For a healthier treat, try making banana ghosts. You only need three ingredients: bananas, chocolate chips, and yogurt. To get started, cut each banana in half. Dip the banana halves in yogurt and put them in the freezer on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Once the yogurt has hardened, you can stick miniature chocolate chips on for eyes and a mouth to create your banana ghost’s face. Bon appetite!
