8 Creepy Halloween Finger Food Ideas Kids And Adults Will Love

Updated on April 3, 2016

When you are planning a Halloween party for kids or adults, the food is key. It has to be good to eat and ghoulish to look at. Here are some easy recipes to get you started with creepy finger foods for guests of all ages. I bet everyone will love these treats.

Halloween Food For the Kids

1. Pretzel Skeletons

Stack up pretzels covered in white chocolate and stick a white marshmellow on top to make a skeleton. Make faces with edible black food gel, and place on top of a cupcake for a fun treat.

2. Eyes Of Frog

Kids love their savories too, so don't forget to place some on the table. If you have a favorite recipe for deviled eggs, simply add some green food coloring to it. When arranging, place pairs of deviled eggs like eyes, with olive slices for pupils and red food decoration gel for bloody veins on the whites.

3. Bloody Hot Dog Fingers


Slice hotdogs in half along the width and then slice lengthwise to get four quarters. Roll crescent roll dough very thinly and cup into strips. Wrap the strips around each quarter piece of hotdog, so that a little hotdog tip peeps out from the end. Bake the fingers as instructed in the crescent roll package. When serving, arrange with dollops of ketchup for creepy accents.

4. Casper Meringues

Make white meringues in the shape of friendly ghosts. While you preheat your oven to 375 degrees, whisk egg whites (of 6 large eggs for 12 people) on high until you get get soft, high peaks. This should take about 2 minutes or less.

Slowly add half a cup of superfine powdered sugar in a steady stream as you whisk until the peaks are very stiff in another 2 minutes. Scoop out the beaten egg whites in large spoonfuls and place on a cookie sheet, a few inches from each other.

Use fingers to form the dollops into ghosts, use your imagination for the shapes, and place in the oven with the heat turned off. The dessert will take six hours to dry. You can even leave them in overnight. Simply draw on two dot eyes with gel and serve.

Halloween Food For the Adults

1. Layer Cake Pumpkin Patch

Slice chocolate cupcakes (you can make these yourself or get them premade), horizontally into three pieces. Layer alternating slices of cake and orange frosting in little glass mason jars. Top the dessert with chocolate sprinkles. Arrange the jars on the table to make a pretty brown and orange pumpkin patch for your guests to feast on.

2. Steampunk Cupcakes

If you're hosting a Steampunk-themed party, make little dark chocolate cupcakes fitted with little brown top hat-and-goggles of marzipan or chocolate.

3. Fruity Ghoulish Punch

Take an ice cube tray and put a maraschino cherry in each cubicle. Fill with cranberry and/or raspberry juice and freeze, preferably with a few drops of red food coloring. For the drink, mix orange juice (two parts) and ginger ale (one part) in a pitcher. Before serving, dip the rim of each serving glass in a mixture of some red food coloring-tinged corn syrup. Let the 'blood' drip down the sides of the glass. Add the punch and two cubes of your prepared ice cubes and serve.

4. Creepy Veggies With Dip

Place a small bowl of your favorite dip in the center of the serving plate. Get a variety of veggies and arrange with creepy accents: slender carrot fingers dabbed with the dip on the tips for fingernails, cherry tomatoes as eyes with olive slice pupils, green beans with red ketchup snake eyes, round beetroot slices carved with gaping mouths and eyeholes etc.

5. Chopped Fingers For Halloween

Let your imagination go wild when it comes to Halloween food. And whether it's for kids or adults, be sure to include both sweet and savory, so everyone can have fun with their ghoulish treats without going hungry.
