Halloween is right around the corner!

One of my family’s favorite themes for celebrating Halloween is witches.  My daughter is nine and dressing up as Maleficent this year.  Halloween is one of her favorite reasons to party.  

Have your kids picked out their costumes?  Will you be hosting or going to a party?

I’ve collected some ideas for Halloween food that will give you some ways to create delicious, and exciting treats.  No tricks!

Usually I like to make as much as possible ahead of time, but there are some Halloween food treats that can also be a party activity.  When everyone participates in creating the food, they enjoy it even more.  I set my guests at the kitchen table and had them create the Witches Broomsticks while I prepared the main course dishes.  It worked well – fun for them and I had help!  By the time everyone was finished with the broomsticks, we were ready to eat sloppy joes and pasta.  Then, after dinner, we turned to the Snack Pack Pudding Mix-Ins  for more creative fun.  Decorating the Snack Pack containers, creating witches hats, and making custom recipes was not only a delicious dessert but a fun activity, as well.

Here are some fun ideas for a Be-WITCH-ing Halloween Party!

Witches’ Broomsticks


#MixInMonsterMash Witches Broomsticks

These are easy and delicious!  Just take a piece of string cheese and cut it into thirds.  Separate one end into strings, to make the bristles.  We found it helps to take out the piece in the middle of the bristles to get a broom-like look.  Insert a pretzel stick for the handle and voila, it’s that easy!

Caramel Dip

#MixInMonsterMash Caramel Dip

Perfect for a fall treat is apples slices and grapes with a caramel dipping sauce.  It makes a beautiful plate and a few Halloween toothpicks add to the fun.  Everyone likes to dip!

Magical Popcorn


#MixInMonsterMash Magical PopcornPopcorn is a great snack at any party, but to give it a Halloween twist we dusted ours with orange colored sugar crystals.  We used Orville Redenbacher – we knew it would be tender and delicious.

Sugar-Rimmed Glass for Punch


#MixInMonsterMash Sugar RimsSpeaking of colored sugar crystals, there is so much you can do with them.  I coated the rims of our drink glasses, with orange, black, and orange-and-black crystals to add a fun touch.  Halloween-themed straws complete the picture.

Hot Chocolate


#MixInMonsterMash Swiss Miss Reddi Wip

When you live in Chicagoland, the end-of-October weather is completely unpredictable.  No Halloween celebration is complete without hot chocolate.  We put our Swiss Miss hot chocolate in a spoooooky owl mug and topped it with Reddi Wip.

Sloppy Joes and Pasta


#MixinMonsterMash Manwich and Bertolli

For our main dishes, we loved sloppy joes and pasta.  Who doesn’t, right?  The perfect treat on Halloween!

Snack Pack Mix Ins


#MixInMonsterMash Snack Pack Mix InsThe most fun of the night was creating fun and delicious Snack Pack Pudding Treats.  I put together a little “buffet” of mix ins and let everyone create their own unique and spooooky desserts.  We started with foam pieces that assemble to create wacky monsters on the pudding containers.  Then we added traditional candies like gummy worms, sprinkles, and candy corn.  The laughter was the only thing more delicious than the dessert!

It’s super easy to make the witch’s hat for the top of a Snack Pack.  You need:

  • chocolate ice cream cones
  • chocolate wafer cookies
  • green frosting
  • white, yellow, or orange frosting

Assemble by placing the wafer cookie down first, then the ice cream cone.  Put a ribbon of frosting around where the cone and wafer meet.  In the front, finish off the hat with a “buckle”.  Easy, done!
