Traditional Halloween Party Food is always fun and actually fairly easy to prepare with a few minor tricks and tips.
These Halloween food recipes are all fairly simple and require very little preparation. Great for home or office Halloween parties. We made most of these for our kid friendly Halloween party. Nothing spooky, just fun.
1. Brownie Ghosts Parfait
Make these Halloween Brownie Parfaits for a cute, delicious, and fun to eat Halloween party treat.
2. Corn Chip Halloween Dessert Bars
Sweet and Salty Halloween Dessert Bars are super easy to make with only a few ingredients. Fair warning, make two batches because these vanish quickly.
3. Green Punch
Our Halloween punch dispenser was a clearance find at the grocery store. However, here is a nice punch dispenser on Amazon you can decorate for any occasion. Walmart has lots of beverage dispensers including for Halloween parties.
4. Mummy Hotdogs
What ‘s old is new again. Let’s face it, Mummy dogs are easy and fun and everyone loves them for Halloween party food.
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) crescent rolls
- 1 pkg. Hot dogs
- sliced cheese, optional
- mustard or candy googly eyes, like these
Unroll the crescent rolls and create four rectangles. You will need to press the seams together. Roll out thin.
Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut each section of crescent rolls into 10 long strips as seen in the photo above.

Now cut each slice of cheese into approximately 5 small strips.
Place one strip of cheese next to a wiener and wrap as seen with crescent roll strips. Be sure to leave a gap at the top for the edible eyes.
Bake in preheated oven at 375° for 14-18 minutes. Allow to completely cool before adding the eyes.
5. Charlie Brown Cookies
Charlie Brown and Halloween belong together. These cookies pay honor to Charlie’s iconic yellow shirt with the chevron stripe. Go here for our super easy Charlie Brown Cookie tutorial. It’s a cheat ‘recipe’ with no baking. ~wink~
6. Chocolate Chip Banana Ghosts
These fun Halloween banana ghosts were the first food to disappear at our kids Halloween party. They loved these.
- Chocolate Chips
- Mini Chocolate Chips
Peel the banana and break it in half. Now you have two ghosts for each one banana.
Place one large chocolate chip for the mouth and two small chocolate chips for the eyes and you are done. Arrange your banana ghosts on a serving platter.
7. Cutie Halloween Pumpkins
- Cuties from the produce department
- one green sweet bell pepper
Peel the Cuties and arrange them on a platter. Set aside while you prepare the pumpkin stems.
Cut the bell pepper into strips. Remove the seeds and rinse then pat dry with a paper towel. Cut each strip into small stems. Insert each pumpkin stem into the top of the Cuties and you are done.
8. Pumpkin Shaped Sandwiches
You can make any kind of sandwiches you like. All you need is a good big pumpkin cookie cutter like this one.
I placed my pumpkin shaped sandwiches on a large platter next to baked chicken nuggets. We made grilled cheese with pepperoni for our sandwiches.
9. Orange Iced Candy Corn Cupcakes
You know around Fall and Halloween every year, orange colored icing appears in the grocery store. Kids love the bright colors and I love a good recipe cheat. I used Pillsbury Funfetti Orange Icing and a box of yellow cake mix.
