Halloween is finally here! We love the creative decorations and costumes, but we especially love the parties. It seems like there are an infinite number of Halloween parties to choose from, so if you decide to host your own party, make sure it stands out from the crowd. Here are some exceptionally clever (and delightfully creepy) snacks to make your Halloween party a memorable one.
These spooky frankfurter mummies are so cute that we don’t want to eat them. Ok, that’s a lie… we can’t wait to bite their little mummy heads off! Serve a platter of these up with some assorted dipping sauces and they’ll be gone before you know it.

Spider Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs may be a somewhat old-fashioned party snack, but this revamped spider version is a quick and easy Halloween treat that’s sure to delight your party guests. Juse use black olive halves for the bodies, and slices for the legs. You’d better eat them quickly though, before they crawl away!

This delightfully gross hors-d’oeuvre is a hearty, protein-filled Halloween snack that will leave your guests completely disgusted, yet asking for more. Use green olives as pupils and a side of “bloody” tomato sauce for a creepy but delicious Halloween treat.

White chocolate strawberry ghosts
Boo! These Halloween treats may be spooky, but they’re also classy and decadent, just perfect for a grown-up Halloween party with a touch of style. Just dip strawberries in melted white chocolate and add milk chocolate faces and voila – a delicious and supernatural Halloween treat. Don’t worry though, because these are friendly ghosts.

Brownies are a classic no-frills dessert, but they can easily be dressed up for your Halloween party. Just add some crumbled Oreo cookies for dirt, biscuits with chocolate frosting as graves, and some candy pumpkins for a colourful touch. For an extra-scary zombie effect, try adding mini plastic hands reaching out from the graves.

Hummus with Carrot Fingers
Hummus is another standard snack option that can easily transform into a spooky and delicious Halloween snack. Peeled carrots masquerade as eerie witch fingers, complete with pumpkin seed fingernails. Use store-bought hummus to make this extra quick, serve with pita bread triangles and dig in… if you dare!

No Halloween would be complete without vampires, and this tasty but creepy Halloween snack is the perfect tribute to our favourite pale-faced friends. Plus, they’re easy to make – anyone can make a sandwich, after all. Just cut them into coffin shapes and use your condiment of choice to add those chilling letters: R.I.P.

Broken Glass Cupcakes
These broken glass cupcakes may look complicated, but they’re actually quite simple to make and are a delicious Halloween dessert. Melted mints are all you need to create convincing shards of glass while raspberry syrup adds the perfect bloody finish. We think Dexter would approve, don’t you?

Not for the squeamish, these shiver-inducing Halloween treats are just dates stuffed with cream cheese (and are utterly delicious) but they look exactly like stuffed cockroaches. Add a couple of rubber roaches to the plate to make them especially realistic, and see who is brave enough to reach for one.
