Halloween Food Ideas - Nice Recipes to Serve at Your Party

Are you cracking your head for Halloween food ideas?

Making for a festive Halloween doesn't just have to do with ghosts and goblins and a great costume, it also has to do with the festive food you serve during this occasion. Here are some Halloween food ideas that are fun and will taste great.

If you're having a party, chances are you can skip the big meal and just work with some appetizers. The right recipes will allow you to make many of them ahead of time, so as to make prep work and planning easier than you ever thought.

Beef Recipe

This beef recipe is festive and fun, easy to eat and you can even make them ahead of time. This recipe makes about two dozen, so if you want you can make more.

What you'll need for this Halloween food idea:

  • About a half pound of ground beef
  • One small chopped onion
  • One third cup of golden raisins
  • One tablespoon of olive oil
  • Two tablespoons of ketchup
  • Two refrigerated rolled pie crusts
  • One large beaten egg
  • One quarter teaspoon cinnamon
  • One quarter teaspoon lime zest
  • A half cup of sour cream

Directions for this Halloween food idea:

  1. Preheat your oven to about 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet and over mid heat, heat the oil.
  3. Add onion and then cook it until it's soft.
  4. Once the onion is cooked, add the ground beef and cook, breaking the meat up with a spoon until it's in fine pieces.
  5. Once the beef and onions are cooked, add the raisins, cinnamon, ketchup, a quarter teaspoon pepper and one half teaspoon salt
  6. Unroll the pie crusts and use a two and a half inch round cookie cutter to cut circles into the pie crust.
  7. Divide the beef mixture (prepared earlier) between the crust circles and fold them over in half, to make half moons.
  8. Crimp the edges closed by pressing the tines of a fork into the dough.
  9. Brush with egg and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  10. Place the sour cream in a bowl and sprinkle the lime zest on it. Serve warm with the sour cream.

To add Halloween flair to your party, why not offer a fruit based dessert? Your guests will love the something healthy with something sweet, and you'll love the spooky finish of this next recipe.

Caramel Apples

This is something we learned from Martha Stewart. We tried it and loved it, and here are some basic instructions to prepare this recipe.

For this Halloween food idea, you will need:

  • Six Macintosh apples (you can double or even triple the recipe if you need to)
  • Two cups of sugar
  • Two cups of heavy cream
  • One half cup of dark corn syrup
  • One quarter cup of unsalted butter
  • Spun sugar

Directions for this sweet but spooky Halloween food idea:

  1. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet and prepare an ice bath.
  2. Stem and wash the apples
  3. Add the cream, corn syrup, sugar and butter to a saucepan and allow it to come to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Use a candy thermometer to see when the temperature reaches 245 degrees F.
  5. Remove the mixture from heat and plunge it into the ice bath so the caramel stops cooking.
  6. Dip the apples into the caramel mixture, making sure to cover them well and place them on the cookie sheet to cool.
  7. To make the spun sugar effect, dip a whisk into the spun sugar syrup and spread it into thin web-like coating for the apples. Repeat for all of the apples and serve.

And these are a couple of simple Halloween food ideas which you could explore for your upcoming Halloween party. Have fun!
