Kids aren’t the only ones who dress up and have fun on Halloween. It’s a fun holiday for adults, too – and costumes are just the beginning. Dressing up and going to a Halloween party with your adult friends while the kids are out collecting candy is a great way to relax and channel your inner child. The right Halloween snacks and drinks make every Halloween party even more fun. It’s better than trick-or-treating for candy and gives you a chance to feel like a kid again.
Top 6 Halloween Party Food Ideas
Mummy Jalapeno Poppers

White chocolate dipped strawberries are always a party favorite. Switch it up by using white chocolate to create strawberry ghosts! Give each one a different face for a unique personality. They’re a Halloween party treat that’s sure to bring out the kid in all your guests. And they’re super tasty too!

Candy Corn Jello Shots
No party is complete without Jello shots! Create Candy Corn Jello Shots for a sweet alcoholic beverage that will remind all your guests of one of the most traditional Halloween goodies. The secret is in the flavored vodka and orange Jello. You’ll want to use tall shot glasses to get the perfect layering effect. Adjust the alcohol amount based on your tastes (and if you’re planning to have guests stay overnight or not.)
Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches
Eek! Bloody fingers! It’s ok. Don’t worry! No fingers were lost while creating this fabulous Halloween snack. But if you get the lighting just right, your guests might think you’re offering them a plateful of fingers until they take a second glance at these finger sandwiches. It’s amazing how well strawberry jam emulates coagulated blood. Peanut butter or cream cheese make the perfect filling and almonds truly emulate gnarled fingernails.
Smoky Pumpkin Punch
Wispy smoke and fog are the hallmarks of Halloween décor. Use dry ice to make fog and smoke curl around a pumpkin punch bowl and give your party an eerie quality. The pumpkin punch is potent enough for any adult party and captures all the best fall flavors. How much eerie smoke you get and how long it lasts will depend on how much dry ice you use. Keep some on hand to add throughout the party and keep the eerie effect going all night long.
Rice Krispies Pumpkins
