Festive sweet and savory snacks to celebrate Halloween

Festive sweet and savory snacks to celebrate Halloween
By Cassie (cynefin)

Halloween is an exciting time of year for many, whether you're a child or an adult. It is the time of year that encourages creativity and even imperfection. Here are some simple, sweet and savory foods for you to make to show what Halloween's all about. Make these on your own as a form of self-care, with family and friends, or use these as crafts with the children in your life.

Sweet foods and snacks


Halloween pretzels are an easy snack to make and they are also easy to store when you're done. Put Hershey Kisses on top of small pretzels, and then heat them until the chocolate begins to melt. Next, press a piece of candy corn to the melted chocolate and wait for the pretzels to cool.

Make a Jello brain! Find a brain mold and your favorite flavor of Jello mix. Follow the directions on the box, then pour the Jello into the mold and allow for it to set. Add some fruit if you'd like. When you're done, you have a treat that looks like a brain and perhaps feels like one, too.

If you are looking for a healthier option, purchase some oranges or clementines and celery. Peel the orange, but leave the slices in their original circular shape. Trim a piece of celery and stick it into the little space at the top of your orange to make pumpkins. Garnish with a celery leaf.

Stick marshmallows on either side of small pretzel rods, then cover them with white chocolate and let them cool. The rods connected to the marshmallows make this creation look like bones.

Poke pretzel rods through large marshmallows. Next, dip the bottoms of the marshmallows in caramel and sprinkle them with Halloween themed sprinkles. These are also easy to make, and they sort of look like mini caramel apples.

Get your favorite brownie mix, or make them from scratch. When they cool, make your brownie pan into a grave yard. Use candy (cupcake and cake toppers), gummy worms, pretzels, marshmallows, or anything you feel completes the look. Alternatively, you can use the sugar candy pumpkins that are packaged with Brach's candy corn to create a pumpkin patch.

Savory snacks and appetizers


Using a knife, cut knuckles and a nail bed into a few hot dogs. Next, cook them in whatever way you choose and add some ketchup once they're in the bun to make the fingers look bloody.

Take a scoop of guacamole and put it onto a plate. Next, place a purple tortilla chip in the left and right side of the guacamole, and use two tiny pieces for the top. Put two small sliced olives on the front to make guacamole bats.

For this idea, you'll need to make some deviled eggs. Make them the way you prefer, or look online to try something new. Gather your olives. You'll need a few whole ones and some that are sliced into crescent-slivers. Put the whole olive on top of the egg. Next, put the slivers slightly dipped in the egg but leave them hanging off the side as well. You'll need four slivers on each side to make spider topped deviled eggs.

Make a vegetable plate in the shape of a skeleton. You can buy pre-cut vegetables, or buy your favorites and slice them the way you prefer. You'll need a big plate, or a pan, to lay the vegetables out on. If you don't know where to start, try using cauliflower for the head, carrots for the ribs, or celery for the limbs.

Purchase some string cheese, small pretzel rods, and chives if you do not already have these in your home. Cut your string cheese into thirds and then begin to slightly peel them at one end to give them the appearance of a broomstick. Poke a pretzel rod through the other end, and wrap chives around the cheese to make it look like the wrapping on a broom.
