Once a year, the spookiness of Halloween brings the kid out of all of us. Tonight is Halloween, but in our house, we’ve been celebrating all weekend. We went to a Trunk or Treat Friday night, a Halloween party on Saturday night, our neighborhood Halloween party last night and tonight we’ll be trick or treating.
Since we have the friends we trick or treat with over before the festivities begin, I am always looking for fun, but quick Halloween-inspired eats to put on the table. It’s nice to know the kids all have a somewhat nutritious meal in their bellies before the candy bartering and chow down begins.
These nine recipes will help you create a fun spread for your guests and your kids.
Those are so easy to make, I can’t wait to put them out on my table to spark a reaction from the kids! If you have time, those two recipes would be fun to make with your kids so they can feel like they are the mad scientists in the kitchen.
Me, I’m a sucker for taco dip no matter what the foodie gathering. So, spruce up your favorite recipe Spider Web style!
All of these recipes make great Halloween lunches and dinners for your family. If you’re looking for a way to include more fresh fruit while minimizing the number of pieces of candy that get eaten, try these simple to throw together Jack O’ Lantern Tangerines. Just peel, add a celery stalk and plate!
What’s your family’s favorite spooky Halloween meal?
