10 Halloween Finger Foods & Party Treats
If you are thinking of organizing a Halloween party this year, then it is time to start planning. One of the most important parts of this celebration is serving festive, Halloween finger foods and party treats to your guests. Here, you will find some brilliant Halloween food ideas to make your party more entertaining.
1. Fingers in Blood
Boil cocktail sausages in multiples of 3, by giving 3 shallow horizontal cuts on one side for each of them to look like fingers. Once they are done, cut a small flat space at the top of each sausage and put small triangle of yellow bell pepper on that space creating a nail for the finger. Now, take a small bowl with some amount of tomato sauce and put 3 sausages together to make it look like a hand with 3 fingers. To make it more spooky, you can sprinkle little bit of tomato sauce on the sausage fingers.
2. Mummy Pizza
Take the English muffins, cut them into half and toast the open sides. Now use the pizza sauce to spread over the toasted part of the muffins and then put long and thin slices of mozzarella cheese to form a bandage like thing over the muffins. Make eyes with sliced black olives on every muffin. Bake these mummy pizzas for another 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts and the pizza turns crispy.
3. Mummy Dogs
Take hot dogs to prepare this creepy-looking finger food. First, wrap the hot dogs with cheese slices being sure to leave a small space free for designing the face. In the face portion, make eyes with mustard seeds or sesame seeds and make a little slit for the mouth. Now, take Pillsbury crescent roll dough and wrap bandages on the hot dogs to look like mummies. Place these hot dogs in a baking sheet and allow them to bake for 10-15 minutes.
4. Tapeworm Sandwiches
Take hot dog to cut it into long strips, so that it looks like tapeworm. Now put these strips into salted, simmering water and wait until they get curled. Thoroughly drain the excess water and put them in a large bowl to coat with ketchup. Slit the hot dog buns in the middle and place a couple of strips inside to prepare this weird, but delicious, party treat.
5. Ghost Sticks
Use pretzel sticks and white chocolate to prepare this spooky recipe. First you need to melt the white chocolate. Then, take each pretzel stick, dip it into the melted chocolate and set them aside on a wax paper for drying. When the chocolate is about to dry take small chocolate chips and use them to make the eyes and mouth on the head of the sticks.
6. Monster Toes
Take cocktail sausages and slice the top off to make room for the nails. Now cut soft tortillas in strips to wrap around the remaining part of the sausages, using a small toothpick to secure the end. Now bake the sausages in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Take them out and fill the open nail portion of the sausages with ketchup. Remember to remove the toothpicks before serving.
7. Caramel Apple Monsters Take caramel candies and in an oven-safe glass bowl and after adding milk to this, place in the oven for melting. Make sure to stir the mixture quite often. When it is ready, take fresh apples to insert sticks on one side. Now, holding the stick, coat the apple evenly with melted caramel. When the caramel is about to set, then use candies to put on one side to make monster face.
8. Creepy Eyeballs
Using peeled, hard boiled eggs, halve them on the vertical side and take the yolk part out, placing it into another bowl. Now put minced onion, dried parsley flakes, dry ground mustard, garlic powder, salt and paprika in the yolk mixture and combine thoroughly with a fork. Put few drops of blue food color to make the yolk look light green. Fill the cavity of the white part with this mix and add 1 sliced black olive to each of the eggs. Make red pupils of the eyes with a small piece of red pepper or tomato.
9. Salty Bones
Take breadstick dough and cut into small pieces. Now, for each piece of dough, cut a slit at both ends and round the flaps in such a way that they look like small bones. Sprinkle coarse salt over the bones and then put them over an ungreased baking sheet to bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
10. Pretzel Spiders
Take two round crackers to make a sandwich using peanut butter as the filling. Now take thin pretzel sticks to make 8 legs around the cracker sandwich, so that it looks like a spider. Use little bit of peanut butter in the place of eyes and stick raisins or black olive slices to make eerie eyes of the spider.
