Best Halloween Recipes

The Top Ten


Halloween can be a scary or light-hearted holiday; take your pick! If your kids are little, you probably want friendly ghosts and pumpkins. But if they're older, you can get really spooky. The food can be fun or spooky too - but it has to be delicious. These ten recipes are some of the best Halloween fare around. Have fun decorating these recipes and mix and match them for a fabulous Halloween party. Have a safe and creepy Halloween!

1. Spiderweb Cake

This gorgeous cake is fun to make, and it's easy too. You don't even need a very steady hand - in fact, if the spider web is a bit wobbly, all the more spooky!

2. Mummy Pizza

This cute little pizza is draped with melted white cheese to look like the wrappings of a mummy. Have your kids make their own!

I love this spooky looking recipe. The dip is delicious and the fingers are so fun to make! This could be a great project for kids.

4. Swamp Dip

Green slime - that's what this dip looks like! But it tastes wonderful, because it's guacamole, served with those great green guacamole chips. I don't know if the chips are made just for Halloween, but they're perfect!

5. Mummy Franks

Hmmm, puff pastry really is my theme for Halloween, isn't it? But it's delicious, easy to work with, and transforms ordinary ingredients into something special. These little hot dogs are wrapped in mummy rags made from pastry. A couple of dots of ketchup complete the look for some red eyes.

6. Pile of Bones with Moldy Dip

With leftover puff pastry from either Mummy Franks or Mini Mummy Meatloaf, make these fun breadsticks with a blue cheese dip.

7. Spider Dip

A creamy shrimp mixture is topped with seafood cocktail sauce and a special spiderweb to make a fun appetizer. Serve it with lots of crudites and chips.

Meatloaf can be wrapped up to look like mummies too! This cool recipe is fun to make and eat.

9. Crisp Halloween Sammies

These cute little sandwiches are made from frozen puff pastry, with meats and cheeses sandwiched in between the layers. The crisp pastry is the perfect foil for the warming and melty filling. Yum.

10. Crunchy Caramel Pumpkin

This fabulous recipe would be the perfect centerpiece for a Halloween party. And it's easy to make, in spite of the fact that it looks so impressive. Plus, it's delicious.
