Easy Halloween treats and drinks

Hi everyone,

Halloween is fast approaching, so I thought today I would share a couple of my favorite simple and easy food and drink favorites. Whether you’re going to/ hosting a party or just want something fun to have on Halloween while you’re handing out candy, these recipes tick all the boxes.

First we have a guaranteed hit at parties, Pumpkin Pie Dip:

What you need:

12 ounces of cream cheese

2 cups of powdered sugar

1 cup of canned pumpkin

1 teaspoon of ground ginger

1 teaspoon of cinnamon or pumpkin spice

2 cups of whipped topping

What you do:

Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the pumpkin and spices and stir until combined.

Fold in the whipped topping, gently, make sure it’s well combined and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Serve with graham crackers and your favorite fruits.

Next we have one of my all time favorites, Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Olive Spiders. I’ve made this for Halloween parties in the past, I’m actually making them for a party this weekend and they pretty much are gone the minute the platter hits the table so I always make sure to use 18 eggs opposed to 12, but if you’re hosting a smaller party 12 will be plenty.

What you need:

12 eggs

Mayonnaise

Yellow Mustard

Olives

Salt

Pepper

Paprika

What you do:

Hard boil the eggs, I do 5 minutes on high heat, then 25 minutes on medium heat. Once the eggs are done, remove them from the heat, dump out the hot water and cool them in cold water. When the eggs have cooled down you can start peeling them or stick them in the fridge for a little while before peeling. It’s up to you.

After peeling the eggs, cut them in half and carefully scoop out the yolk. Be sure to do this carefully otherwise the egg will tear and it will be difficult to get the filling back in.

Combine the yolks with the mayonnaise, yellow mustard, salt and pepper and mix until well combined and mixture is smooth.

Fill the eggs with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with paprika.

Cut the olives in half, take one half and put it on top of the egg, take the other half and cut into strips, putting four on each side.

Serve and enjoy

The third treat is great for the kids, or anyone that wants a little fun without the alcohol, although you could add alcohol to these if you wanted. And they are floats, specifically Lime and Orange Sherbet Floats.

What you need:

Lime:

One container of Lime Sherbet, any brand

One bottle of Lemon Lime soda, any brand

Orange:

One container of Orange sherbet, any brand

One bottle of Orange soda, any brand

What you do:

Mix the sherbet and the soda. You can do them individually or in a punch bowl. And to make them even more festive, top them with gummy worms, gummy eye balls or any gummy body parts you can find and enjoy.

My last two are strictly for the adults. Halloween cocktails. I searched through many different and delicious looking/ sounding recipes, but I found two that are simple and sound amazing.

The first is the Poisoned Apple martini.

What you need:

2 ounces of apple cider

1 ounce of pomegranate juice

2 ounces of tequila

Ice

Dry Ice

What you do:

Combine ingredients with ice in martini shaker. Shake to mix and strain into chilled martini glass.

Add dry ice before serving. You don’t have to add the dry ice, although it does give a spooky effect. But if you do go with the dry ice make sure you use small ice chips to avoid the possibility of your guests getting frostbite. This recipe makes one cocktail.

The next drink is the Black Widow cocktail.

What you need:

1/2 ounce of strawberry vodka

1/2 ounce of white rum

1/2 ounce of triple sec

3 ounces of cranberry juice

Ice

What you do:

Combine the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake to mix and pour into martini glass.

For extra spook and to bring home the black widow theme, top with a plastic spider and enjoy. This recipe also makes one cocktail.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any fun Halloween recipes let me know and if you make any of these tweet me a pic or tag me on Instagram. My links will be below.

Until next time, if you’re going to any parties have fun and I hope you all have a happy Halloween :).
