Halloween is just a few weeks away, and time will go very quickly, so if you are planning on throwing a party on the scariest night of the year and you’re looking for some inspirational food ideas, here are a few that could help you along.
Halloween Candy Apples
What drew me to these lovely creations is the fact that real twigs are used for the candy apple sticks, which I think are more realistic and in-keeping with Halloween than the plain sticks you would use at any other time of the year.

Green Witches Fingers
Well…what can I say! These green witches fingers look absolutely amazing. They’re made by mixing up butter, sugar, egg etc and using almonds for the fingernails. If you take a close look, you should be able to see the blood (made from red decorating gel) under the nails – nice touch. They’re an ideal choice for your menu if you are planning a Halloween party. We sourced this fabulous idea from this site.
Creepy Crawly Brownie Bite Spiders
When I saw these brownie bite spiders I thought “yes!, what a great idea!”, and put them on my ‘to make’ list. I love the way they look so very ‘spiderish’, and the brownie recipe they’re made from looks delicious. The recipe and method to make these can be found here.
I think if you made these and served them on Halloween you’ll get a round of applause. They are such a simple, yet wonderful creative idea for foodies. Here are the full instructions on how to make Dracula’s Dentures!
Halloween Meat Head
I have to admit when I first saw this I was shocked at how good it looks, and I thought it must be extremely difficult to make. However, after reading how to make it I changed my mind. This is definitely would make a great centrepiece for a Halloween buffet.
Halloween Worms in Dirt
You have to admit it, these worms in dirt look very realistic! The way in which these gross worms are created is by using flexible drinking straws. These worms would be perfect to go on the table especially if you are holding a kids Halloween party (I’d say for children 8 years and above).
